Kickass Movie Scene List #89: Prometheus

Scene #89 comes to us from a movie whose reach exceeded its grasp. Prometheus certainly wasn't a bad movie - indeed there are a number of decent performances (Fassbender's in particular stands out) and a couple of memorable scenes (like this one). Overall, the plot was just so damned convoluted.

Still, this scene was pretty great.

A Medical Procedure

The "android going homicidal" trope is well worn, especially when it comes it movies in the Alien franchise. Watching David (played by the aforementioned Michael Fassbender) do it is still fun. In the leadup to this scene, he puts a bit of the bizarre mutagen that drives most of this movie into one of the main character's drink. Said character then proceeds to get romantic with his girlfriend, Shaw.

It's been established at this point in the movie that Shaw is infertile, so when David mentions that she's pregnant, the viewer immediately assumes the worst.

Which, as it turns out, is a pretty safe assumption.
