So is this the film of the year? My epiphany in the cinema? No, because "Prometheus" is not exactly flawless. There are some crazy stupid moments in the film.
June 8, 2019
A fascinating journey, to be sure, but its mix of big ideas with horror and suspense never quite meshes together.
May 3, 2019
A magical bit of science fiction that Scott uses to start widening the world he began in 1979 with Alien.
April 11, 2019
This is a well-crafted piece of work that astutely balances science fiction with some genuinely jump-out-of-your-seat moments. It's a throwback that should please fans of the sci-fi genre.

Prometheus is a hard one to judge, despite what people had been telling me for years, it's actually not that bad... nor is it that great either. Average it is then!

Even when its reach doesn't quite meet its grasp, it still deserves to be seen.
February 1, 2019
The plot has a lot of very intriguing concepts and the writers and Scott have come up with a myriad of ways to organically integrate much of the beloved Alien iconography while still forging glorious new images.
January 3, 2019
Played with an understated sense of humor by Fassbender, [David's] one of the most entrancing creations on the big screen this year.
November 9, 2018
This movie is smart, suspenseful and at times, even funny-and the acting is impeccable.
November 4, 2018
The film is first and foremost a well-made, immersive piece of sci-fi/horror that serves as a perfect addition to Scott's other black space classic.
September 8, 2018
Viewers with short attention spans probably won't enjoy the gradual build Scott does so well, but it's worth the wait.
August 30, 2018
The passage of time brings [Ridley Scott] back to the genre with the questions of a man facing his mortality-and with the tricks of a showman who hasn't forgotten how to scare you.
June 22, 2018
Despite its flaws, Prometheus is a visually stunning film (well worth the extra expense of 3-D) that leaves the viewer pondering its themes of creation's longing to know its creator long after the credits have rolled.
May 23, 2018
What is absolutely guaranteed, however, is that Prometheus will entertain you. It's a damn good ride, and it will, occasionally, make you think.
October 23, 2017
Director Ridley Scott is returning to his roots here, making the kind of atmospheric horror that builds up to its scare through judicious use of music, lighting and setting to set moods, and then punctuating scenes with explosive, frightening violence.
September 8, 2017
Prometheus recaptures the essence of not only a beloved franchise, but also an admired yet complicated genre many filmmakers attempt but few successfully. In short, it shows the amateurs how it's really done.
August 21, 2017
A movie like Prometheus-and that is the extraordinary power of its genre-serves as an outlet for irrational connections.
May 31, 2017
Scott's long-awaited return to science fiction is equal parts wondrous, frustrating and flawed.
November 9, 2016
Even if the movie's logic ultimately spirals down into a vortex of hysteria, horror and hokum, I enjoyed the bulldozer intensity of the climax, which barely keeps a lid on the crackpot cult movie that's wrestling for the soul of this... blockbuster.
November 9, 2016
Prometheus is a mesmerising collision of theological angst, going further than Alien in beating on HP Lovecraft's tentacle doorknocker.
