  • Most underrated film of the last 20 years.

    I have now watched this film three times with a few years between each viewing. This is a great film the visuals and story are fantastic. The acting is exceptional. This should have been much bigger than it was.
  • yeah!!

    the plot is so confusing and twisted that i'm unsure of what's going on for the majority of the film... but boy do i have a good time watching it!! it's such a gorgeous and interesting movie, and i really enjoyed the religious overtones. plus, noomi rapace and michael fassbender are extremely talented (and pretty!) so that really makes up for all of the pitfalls. accessibility note: i observed that there are a lot of missing words in the subtitles. nothing that ruins the movie, but still.
  • Just great!

    Just what sci-fi should be
  • Maybe it’s a parody

    The characters are so hopelessly stupid that they deserve everything that happens to them.
  • Human Intelligence and brilliant filmmaking

    Prometheus isn't like any other alien film it's more about Sci-Fi stuff and the question of who made us and there are some few bad scenes in it too maybe this movie to smart for me besides this alien movie is smart indeed a smart in need deserves a brain indeed.
  • Perfect Ridley Scott! Great originality

    I loved this film, it’s not a typical Alien re-boot like Covenant. Its original and very well done ( actors, story, even the ship itself) More a character study and meditation on the creation of life with just the right amount of alien action, not too “ in your face” like previous re-boots. Unfortunately everyone was hating on the film when it came out because they were expecting jump scares or yet another re- boot ( not a philosophical character study which was original and a great alien origin story and not too obvious ) a true passion project from Ridley Scott. As a result of all the Cry Babies Bad Reviews, Ridleys Scott was pressured into making “Alien Covenant” witch I think was good but Totally paled in comparison. This man is a legend, you could argue Prometheus was on par with the original blade runner or the first alien films for originality, set design, great cast/ acting, and character development, even the ship in Prometheus felt like it was its own character) . Perhaps he was overwhelmed by having to make blade runner 2020 like the same year as AlienCovenant , probably why he had another director involvin B. Runner 2020 instead of directing that awesome film by himself. Long story short, people need to stop giving bad reviews just because they couldn’t appreciate a fresh and original take on the Alien franchise like Prometheus. If you do hate on a good film like that it makes the studio big wigs and possibly the director to compromise and please the cry babies. I enjoyed Alien Covenant, David’s story of the original xenonmorph was the best part, the rest fell short by miles, it pales in comparison to Prometheus. So AlienCovenant is what you get thanks to the haters bad reviews. I truly admire Ridley Scott since I watched Legend as a child, I really hate when great directors have to compromise for whatever reasons. Alien covenant had so much wasted potential, but it wasn’t all bad, I still bought it. But you get my meaning Be careful what you wish for haters!

  • Let down!

    By Amy Meditate
    Doesn't feel anything like an Alien film. Only slightly better than Alien 3, which is not a complement. Not only is it ambiguous, the actions taken just don't make logical sense, and for a 2 and a half hour film it feels incredibly rushed somehow. Sad.
