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" has the integrity of a serious and sincere attempt, but ultimately it won't please anybody. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 8, 2012

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

Fresh Exciting and Totally Worth Buying!

this is obviously a return to science fiction by Epic Director Ridley Scott and also a fresh new direction away but also inside the Alien Story-Arch
the film magnificently blew my mind when i saw it at midnight! the opening scene with the landscapes and the amazing musical score just breathes a fresh new take at a far far different version of any Dark, Gritty alien film we have seen before.
and brings alot of questions we as human beings always wonder. who or what created us!
the films epic groundbreaking new technology and visuals are just eye candy for the technology consumer in all of us
everything was fantastic
but the charecters could of used a little deeper creation!
none the less
my Favorite Film of 2012! over Dark Knight Rises.. which is saying something lol
