  • The ending isn't squishy scary or deeply satisfying. Bummer. Otherwise, Prometheus – especially in its spellbinding first hour – kicks ass so hard and often that it's impossible not to be thrilled by it. show more

  • Try as it might, the movie is hardly profound, and the murky atmosphere and the leaden pace drag things down. show more

  • Scott seduces audiences with thought-provoking possibilities, then pulls a bait-and-switch, subbing in a familiar monster thriller and fiery explosion-fest. show more

    Very entertaining if you have already seen the Alien movie series. If not, forget it.

    Really a \"must see\" for any fan of the Alien franchise (whether you like it or not). Very interested and hoping to see a continuation.

    There weren’t many questions answered about the Alien franchise and the plot may have its pitfalls, but the graphics alone are enough to make this movie a worth while watch. After I saw the trailer in my office at DISH I knew it was going to be breathtaking and the blu-ray did not disappoint. There were some interesting mysteries that were brought up in the movie that were not answered, but I hear the sequel will be very enlightening. I can’t wait. Since I’ve been using Blockbuster at Home instead of going to the theaters I have been able to watch movies all month for the price of one ticket and this is by far the best one I have seen al
