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

Though Scott denies the ties to \"Alien\", it is obvious that this movie is the prequel to that series. I thought the movie was fairly well done but it lacked the intensity of Alien until the end, and I was okay with that. Acting was top shelf and CGI wasn't over done. All in all, entertaining.

The New York Times
The virtuosity on display makes the weakness of the story all the more frustrating. I'll avoid spoilers here, but Prometheus kind of spoils itself with twists and reversals that pull the movie away from its lofty, mind-blowing potential. Full Review

All the God-talk and philosophical musings about morality and "meeting our makers" aside, Prometheus is primarily about delivering those visceral, terrifying jolts. That it does so without generating the taut suspense and moody atmosphere of its antecedents qualifies as one of its greatest failings. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Scott seduces audiences with thought-provoking possibilities, then pulls a bait-and-switch, subbing in a familiar monster thriller and fiery explosion-fest. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Prometheus, in efficient 3-D, places most of its bets on the wonders that today's visual artists and technicians can work with digital tools. This tale of an interstellar search asks cosmic questions about the meaning of life, but comes up with lame answers in a script that screams attention-deficit disorder. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Prometheus, unlike its predecessors, does not wear its themes lightly. It pushes too hard for significance, which is dicey in and of itself for genre material and contrasts badly with the standard nature of some of the story's plotting. Full Review
