Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Even if the movie's logic ultimately spirals down into a vortex of hysteria, horror and hokum, I enjoyed the bulldozer intensity of the climax, which barely keeps a lid on the crackpot cult movie that's wrestling for the soul of this... blockbuster. – Tom Charity,, Nov 9, 2016

Fresh: The movie may be a scare show that leaves many questions unanswered, but Scott's craft earns an exhausted kind of respect. – David Denby, New Yorker, Jun 18, 2012

Rotten: Prometheus is scary only in the sum of instincts and talent for movie-making that have been lost. – David Thomson, The New Republic, Jun 17, 2013

Fresh: Much like Rutger Hauer's turn as a replicant in Scott's Blade Runner, Fassbender's performance may launch Prometheus into the cult stratosphere. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Jun 8, 2012
