Since when do space ships have hand-breaks!?!? AND WHY IS THERE A ZOMBIE???

By DarkPhysicist
If you're looking for big budget action and amazing special effects, this movie is definitely for you. However, if you're looking for a cool science fiction story with some depth, interesting...

This was the worst movie I've seen all year!

By TheDivaCountess
This movie was a waste of Charlize Theron's talent and my time. Ridley Scott was my favorite director until now. This movie makes Alien 3 look like a good movie. These were the dumbest scientist...

wholly absolutely completely satisfying...

Prometheus does what all great science fiction films should do; it stays with you long after it has ended. It stayed with me so much that it merited watching it twice. While the entire cast is...

A Masterpiece Of Cinema Destined To Become Legend.

By Alon Patterson
When Ridley Scott makes an original movie, a sci-fi most especially, the audience is in for a really amazing experience. That's exactly what they get here. Spellbinding to the point of numbness...

Strong visuals, strong acting, weak script.

By valleester
The plot took too long to develop, most of the characters were forgettable (with the noteable exception of Idris Elba's Captain Janek,) and there were a few loose ends that did not get tied up at the...

Great film. Don't go expecting 'Alien'

By cootersbox
This movie is great. Anyone going into it expecting anything to do with 'Alien' & 'Aliens' will obviously dislike it. The film is an un-official prequel. Pre-quels do not cover what you already...

Bad Beyond any expectation

By jtishler1
A string of terrible sci-fi cliches and silly imagery I was fooled into not expecting from an over the hill Ridley Scott by clever marketing. Oh well. It's rare an ad campaign gets the better of me,...

If you get a free ticket give it to someone you don't like!

By KennX
Wow. This was a horribly written movie. The scientists were all incredibly stupid. This is the Highlander 2 of Alien films. The acting was not good. Only two characters (the Pilot and the...

not one like-able character in the whole movie

By juan162
so sad- I wanted to like this and was so excited to go see it- but every single character was so annoying. Who cares if they all die?- not me....

I'll take the Aliens movies instead!

By Rodhea
Not much impressive about this movie. I much prefer the alien movies instead. It lacked any real drama until towards the end of the movie. There were some scenes toward the end reminiscent of the...
