There's a lot of college dorm philosophical mumbo jumbo on top but it all really boils down to, "Man seeks his creator/makes contact/discovers he is a total jerk."

Prometheus is a welcome return to form for Ridley Scott -- delivering a fascinating sci-fi storyline, gorgeous 3D visuals, and competent filmmaking choices.

Very few films can create a genuine sense of wonder and discovery, and Prometheus manages it for its entire 124 minute running time ... almost entirely a sensory experience.

Never quite matching Alien or Aliens for emotional authenticity - but definitely holding you in tow until the final moments. Ridley Scott isn't much for illustrating humanity, but he sure as hell knows how to craft aliens.

Prometheus might have given serous thought to this premise, but it opts instead for strenuous action. Still, the film has glimmerings of intelligence.

It isn't perfect, but Prometheus is a thoroughly entertaining summer blockbuster that is a cut above the rest due to an amazing cast and Ridley Scott, who re-establishes himself as one of our greatest world building filmmakers.

The film [has] a kind of "been there, done that" feeling.

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.
July 13, 2012
"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.

Ridley Scott retells an old story

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

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