Prometheus – What the movie was actually about?

The best damn explanation of the movie. Obviously, Don’t read it if you haven’t watched the movie yet!

Let’s begin with the eponymous titan himself, Prometheus. He was a wise and benevolent entity who created mankind in the first place, forming the first humans from clay. The Gods were more or less okay with that, until Prometheus gave them fire.

This was a big no-no, as fire was supposed to be the exclusive property of the Gods. As punishment, Prometheus was chained to a rock and condemned to have his liver ripped out and eaten every day by an eagle. (His liver magically grew back, in case you were wondering.)

I watched the movie over the weekend & I’d rate it a solid 8/10. Being a huge fan of Lost, I knew Damon Lindelof would obviously leave a lot of doubts unanswered, this article clears up a whole lot of them.
