The film [has] a kind of "been there, done that" feeling.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
They would have been better off channeling their inner Ellen Ripley and pulling the release to the airlock before this voyage departed.
| Original Score: 5.3/10
Prometheus seems to delusionally maintain that its modest thrills are being enlivened by deeper concerns.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Prometheus suffers from a near-terminal inability to decide what story it wants to tell.
| Original Score: 3/5
It's great to see Scott back in the realm of sci-fi but it's a superficial attempt to brand something new with the familiar elements of Alien
| Original Score: 2.5/5
After an encouraging start the film too hastily descends into a contrived jumble of fiction, burdened by undertows of faith, mankind's origins and what it means to be human.
While its vast sets and production values are simply stunning, "Prometheus" ultimately disappoints.
In space, no one can hear your disappointment.
It's all a bit woolly-minded. Shock horror indeed.
For all the noise and thunder early on, Prometheus just runs out of steam, but what a ride until it does.
| Original Score: 6.5/10
Questions go unanswered, shocking occurences go unquestioned, and supposedly intelligent people do stupid things.
| Original Score: 2/5
It's a gutsy effort but the screenplay from Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof isn't strong enough. I was struggling with the characters from the very beginning.
| Original Score: B-
An infuriating example of a film that holds huge potential and borders on greatness, but in falling just short of that mark feels little more than mediocre.
| Original Score: 5.5/10
In space, everyone can hear you try too hard.
In space no one can hear PROMETHEUS disappoint you.
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.
The deep, dark shadows that played such a crucial role in the shot-on-film Alien and its sequels are gone in Prometheus.
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.
| Original Score: C
If you have a dozen engaged and insightful friends who are willing to share a beer after seeing 'Prometheus,' you can talk yourself into thinking it's a fabulous movie.
| Original Score: 5/10
It's not necessarily a bad movie, it's just half of a great one. And that's almost more disappointing.
