Don't be put off by the silly 1 star reviews on here because although prometheus isn't perfect and has flaws, it's still a magnificently crafted intelligent sci-fi film that challenges you to think. The problem was that the hype damaged this film, if you hype something for that long and that hard, then there will always be a degree of anti-climax, it's happened before and it'll happen again. People went in with ridiculous expectations and that's why there are so many stupid 1 or 2 star reviews - they never took it for what it was! to compare this,as some did on here, to "The phantom menace" is pathetic and childish to say the least.

The main problem with Prometheus is clearly it's unanswered questions, my opinion is that this will play better when the sequel arrives as it's really just act 1 of a 2 or 3 act play, that said there's still lots to enjoy here, namely Michael Fassbenders brilliant performance as David the Android, the exceptional design work,stunning fx and Naomi Rapace who is excellent in only her 2nd Hollywood role.

Fed up of silly robots smashing things up,superheroes and vacuous teen vampire movies? want sci fi but with a brain? then this movie is for you, sure it's not perfect but its miles better than most movies out there at the moment.

This is a great film in it's own right, even Ridley says it's not really a prequel, it's just that the idea for this film came about from elements of the first Alien film. Just watch it for what it is, a great piece of Sci-Fi.
Just a gripe now towards Amazon, Why don't you list the extras on any of your DVD / Blu Ray's? This would help many people in deciding which version of the disc to buy. Now originally I was going to buy the film which just came with a digital copy, this was around 15, or I could go for the copy which also had the 3D version, but not having a 3D TV I thought this would be a waste of time and an extra 5. But it wasn't until I read through a load of reviews where someone said to go for the 3D version as it had a film makers documentary which is 3.5 hours long, this I believe does not come with the other version. So I ordered the 3D version (which also has the normal 2D blu Ray version) which does indeed come with a 3.5 hour documentary, but that's not all, there is over 7 hours of bonus features on this disc, which are as follows:

Deleted scenes including alternate beginning and ending
making of Prometheus in depth documentary
Audio commentaries
The Peter weyland files
Weyland corp archive
Plus a Mobile app
Plus more

So if you like your extras then the 3D version is the way to go

To put it simply I'm going to review the actual content of the blu ray not the film, there are loads of film sites/magazines you can view if you want a review of the movie i'm going to talk about what seems to get ignored the actual product you are buying!

I will just note, I love the film and think it was way over hyped and this led to people thinking it was going to be the best movie ever so it could never live up to these high standards. Just please ignore all the 1 star reviews, this is certainly not a 1 star movie.

The picture
Prometheus is a good looking film on blu ray, it certainly not the best looking blu ray. Ironcally Alien (A film from the 1970's) looks better on Blu ray. There is some grain but there has been a lot worse in recent years.

The Extras
The Blu ray really shines here. Firslty you get a proper itunes digital copy not a rubbish UV digtial copy. You can also chose to download a Windows Media Player file instead, if you don't use itunes, that will work on msot devices. There is a large handfull of deleted scenes each with a cool little explain of why they were cut and what they add to the film. There is also an alternative beginning and ending. The deleted scenes are separate from the movie and cannot be viewed as part of the film, in say a director's cut format.

There is also a strange feature called the "Weyland files" which gives a deeper view into the "Alien/Promethues Universe". there is also commentaries which are good but really only for Alien/Prometheus super fans, the causal viewer will be bored. Finally there is a really cool dual screen feature.

Prometheus is beautifully made but hollow and shallow and devoid of a solid core.

The script was rewritten by one of the "lost" writers and the producers didn't know whether they wanted a completely separate universe to aliens, a prequel set in the alien universe. The result is characters who take actions and hold motivations that make no sense to the actions happening around them. It lacks cohesion from story to character and while certain performances and beautiful graphical work this film winds up as ok.

But I expected a lot more, in a time of super hero movies and cookie cutter crap along came a new Ridley Scot sci fi movie, and it might even have something to do with alien! What could go wrong with that?!?

Sadly many things went wrong, and as I watch the film with a critical eye I cant help but feel simply disappointed by this movie. I cant enjoy the "story" presented here because I wasn't invested in the characters who lacked the warmth of the alien cast.

And that is before the questions start.

What is the black goo? Why does it have fifteen thousand different effects?.
If the bald alien thing made all life then why does his sleepy friend instantly want to destroy us all.
Why run in a straight line? seriously I have seen actual diagrams about this with the rolling donut ship and arrows pointing either way with "safety" written on them.
Why does the biologist basically run away from a headless dead body in one scene then coochie coo an alien snake in another just a bit after it?
Why does the weyland corp hire a bunch of amateurs?
Why does an archeologist assist on an alien autopsy?
I could go on for an hour here with stupid questions, its actually sort of weirdly fun.
I hear most people enjoy it. I wish I could have.
