Prometheus 2, its title and plot are been a motive of controversy. It usually happens with iconic films, and although on the official website of Prometheus 2, they are a little annoyed with false rumors, the truth is that they are inevitable when a film has thousands of followers. Everybody wants to know and everybody is excited about any news. Congratulations to Ridley Scott, he made another masterpiece (I’m a fan of Blade Runner too).
Thus, forget about Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) returning to Earth and remember her prophetic words at the end of Prometheus (2012). She said to David (Michael Fassbender) her firm intention to continue looking for her creators.
“I don’t want to go back, I want to go where they came from” “I am still searching”.
Elizabeth Shaw is a very religious person. She has the need to know her fate after death and therefore, she needs to know her origin. She has sought answers in other religions before but she has doubts. She wears a Christian cross in the neck because she doesn’t completely deny the faith of her fathers. Where is God?
One of the most attractive traits of Shaw’s personality is her bravery. She is so bold as to accept the idea of an evil god (or gods). This would be an absolute break with Christianity but she only wants the truth. Paradise? I think the Engineer homeworld can be hell.
The Engineer civilization is highly developed. We saw their art, music, technique and… biotechnology and genetic engineering! People, who can create destructive monsters to destroy other planets, including Earth, will have built a planet based on violence and exploitation of the weakest.
Elisabeth has already lost many things: lover, home, work, child, friends, health… What else will she lose her desire to learn? Remember Prometheus and his terrible fate.
In my opinion, life is to be lived. We can lose our life looking after death. When we die we’ll see there. But obviously, Elizabeth does not share my opinion.
And you? What do you think? Tell us your opinion now!
