The only real redeeming feature of this film is the character David, played by Michael Fassbender. His performance saves the film from being pretty rubbish to be honest and he deserves huge praise for inhabiting the role so completely. The first few scenes are him alone and are very special. The tone of the film changes several times and are all centred around this character and his actions. As part of the Alien franchise, this film is by far the poorest effort but I'd recommend anyone watch it for Fassbender's performance alone.

I'm a huge sci-fi fan and we've tended to be on the back burner for some time with decent new films of this genre.
So getting stuck into the film it's certainly not bad by any means, but it's confused and rather than take a clearly defined "real Alien" prequel it merely skirts around the edges unsure if it's a new film or a re-treading pre Alien.

There are undeniable nods to Alien, from the actual seemingly abandoned "Alien ship", right down to the Aliens themselves which are very close to the ones you find in the original Alien film (ie the long dead ones which were wiped out by the well known Aliens)...clearly intended on the Director's part. But it stops short of being the prequel it should have been, and leaves more questions than it does answers.

Visuals are excellent as you would expect from a modern sci-fi with the power of up to date computers and talented CGI artists you won't be left wanting here.
Cast is overall quite good with Michael Fassbender taking the part of the android "David" and probably the best performance of the film. Charlize Theron stunning as ever, and decent acting but probably not quite the role I would have picked for her. Noomi Rapace, not a well known actress but does quite well with what she has role wise (I would have picked Charlize for her role). Few other cast members really stand out though, but that's not the real issue of the movie.

If Avatar was all CGI and not much story (which in my view it was, great visuals but predictable corny story/plot) Prometheus is a bit of a let down in it's conclusion, it doesn't deal with the questions you want, it fails to be the full blown no messing around prequel it should be.

No tension,no thrills,just gore and no logic or answers but a lot of Questions which did not make it interesting just mind numbingly bland and silly,the crew all acted that stupid it was unbelievable!,are they meant to be?,it was like watching the TV show 'Lost' but without the characters to care about,shocking film.The Blue Ray had a average picture and the sound was a touch loud in the action and low in the dialogue,which seems to be every Blue Ray,unless you have surround sound,there is a good deleted scene With the younger Wayland(Guy Pearce)which was better then the film and had some punch and logic to it but a Directors Cut will not fix this mess.I am sure Ridley Scott Has lost the plot,i was not expecting another Alien film but at least something better then an expensive looking B movie!and if Scott thought a more run of the mill Alien prequel would be boring it would have been better then this tosh!,even Micheal Fassbender could not save it!,the worse sci-fi film i have ever seen.

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.

I first saw in 3D at the cinema and hated it, thinking it was not in the same league as the Alien films. When it came out on DVD, I bought it to watch again. I must say, I preferred in it in 2D, but still think it is not a patch on Alien. Worth 3 stars for the special fx, but something lacked in this film.

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
