Scott has indeed created another sci-fi classic -- brilliant mess that it is.

"Prometheus" comes off as a really fun movie with knockout effects, a splendid visual design, tense scenes, a playful attitude but ... well, it's a wee bit familiar.

Prometheus asks a big, loaded question, but teasingly leaves the answer for another mission...and another movie.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

For those who aren't opposed to a little 'Why?' in their sci-fi, Ridley offers a penetrating other-worldly adventure like few films in recent memory.

July 4, 2012

Ridley Scott's long-awaited prequel-of-sorts to his game-changing 1979 classic sci-fi terror ride Alien is not only conceptually lame and badly made, it's actually worse than Alien Resurrection.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

Let's get this straight: 'Prometheus' is not a direct prequel to 'Alien,' 'Aliens' or 'Predator.' However, 'Prometheus' does exist in that particular universe.

The movie may be a scare show that leaves many questions unanswered, but Scott's craft earns an exhausted kind of respect.

The production design by Arthur Max and the art direction of the film are spectacular. It is an awesome feat of visual art.

They would have been better off channeling their inner Ellen Ripley and pulling the release to the airlock before this voyage departed.

While I was completely engrossed in 'Prometheus', I felt a tug-of-war going on between the cerebral and visceral elements, right up to the finale.

Salt Lake Tribune

With a few perfectly pitched sequences of sheer terror -- capped by an astonishing surgery scene featuring Rapace -- Scott coils the tension to unbearable tightness.

Scott was so intent on returning his spawn to glory that he mistakenly shot for Alien by way of 2001: A Space Odyssey, making it all the more disappointing when he inevitably settled for Aliens by way of Lost in Space.

The movie has good acting and a great look, but the plot is confusing and eventually not as interesting as it should be.

'Prometheus' could be starting something great. While it looks amazing, the jury is out on whether it ends up reminding me of 'The Matrix Reloaded' more than anything else.

a would-be summer blockbuster of intense ambition and visual grandeur, merging metaphysical speculation with healthy doses of gooey-horrific imagery and high-tension suspense

Movie Dearest

Starts out intriguingly as an exploration of faith and humankind's origins. To my disappointment, though, it largely abandons this once the familiar face-huggers and chest-bursters start to appear.
