Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The movie may be a scare show that leaves many questions unanswered, but Scott's craft earns an exhausted kind of respect.
Fresh: Prometheus tells a much bigger story and does it well, but it's missing what matters most. It's inorganic.
Rotten: "Prometheus" has the integrity of a serious and sincere attempt, but ultimately it won't please anybody.
Fresh: With its creepy caves and yawning space, "Prometheus" is on one level a somber dialogue between man the aspirant and man the mortal.
But I found the behavior of some of the characters just ridiculous. This is the mission of all missions to outer space and who do we send? A bunch of sociopaths, egomaniacs and idiots.
Still a great time, but Mr. Scott, you have here a chance to make an unforgettable drama that happens to be in a Sci Fi realm and you just miss it entirely.
I had a good time and all, will probably see it again but it could have been SO MUCH BETTER...
An amazing experience for some
I went to see this movie in theaters with some doubt due to all the prequels and their counterparts that have been made recently, and usually fall short. This is most certainly not the case with Prometheus. This is a fantastic stand alone movie, and a tie in to the original Alien Film. It does leave you with questions but, face-it doesn't every great film. Visuals are awesome, and the attention to detail is fantastic. Though the movie did fall short in some aspects, it really does leave you wanting more. Over all very enjoyable film. I would recommend this to people who like the "Alien" Films, and John Carpenters "The Thing".
INCOMPLETE iTUNES VERSION
Buyer Beware!! Do NOT pay money for what is an incomplete version of the film.
This version is missing proper texts that were originally in theaters, such as when we first see the Prometheus ship. Originally there was animated text introducing the ship, it's destination, cargo, crew, etc. The text does NOT appear in this version through iTunes!
Nice job Fox/iTunes!!
