Returning to the genre that skyrocketed his career with "Alien" and "Blade Runner," Scott has fashioned a fascinating new mystery within his original "Alien" universe.

Scott has lensed a film that possesses the look of a video View-Master. It's jaw-droppingly striking.

I won't say that I'm con-metheus, but I'm not entirely pro-metheus either.

Spectacular and mesmerizing. Ridley Scott is back in top form, but "Prometheus" suffers from pulling (and relying on) the strings of anticipation a bit too much.

In space, everyone can hear you try too hard.

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.

After a stunning opening, Scott fails to close the deal

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
