Prospect (2018)



Critic Consensus: Fueled by character development and setting instead of special effects, Prospect is a sci-fi story whose style is defined - and enriched -- by its limitations.

Critic Reviews for Prospect

All Critics (53) | Top Critics (8)

The defiantly lo-fi "Prospect" is a smartly entertaining throwback that doesn't need a Marvel movie's worth of CGI to make its point.

November 8, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The film balances genre thrills with a detailed depiction of prospecting on an alien world, created via a mix of practical locations (shot in a damp Northwestern forest) and some psychedelic digital backdrops.

It's rare to see a sci-fi movie that genuinely has a true grit to it, a characteristic that bolsters its screenplay through its more underwhelming passages.

While the effort is admirable and there are elements that work, Prospect never clicked for me.
