4.0 out of 5 stars Sorry, but it's a GOOD film!, 14 Aug. 2012
By 
This review is from: Prometheus - Collector's Edition (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + Digital Copy) [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
What's with the passionate 1 star reviews???? Come on people, let's get a bit of perspective here. 1 star means something is TERRIBLE. So, if TERRIBLE is something like 'Batman and Robin'...just ask yourself 'can I in all honesty give Prometheus the same rating as Batman and Robin?' In my mind, it's totally irrational to give Prometheus 1 star. It FAR exceeds 1 star films...light years ahead of them in fact.

I think this was never going to satisfy the hardcore Alien fans. But, not being a HARDCORE fan myself...just a guy looking for a GOOD film...I have to say that I really liked Prometheus. Everything from the design, to the performances, to the concepts explored, are all excellent. Prometheus is even better when we consider what came before it. Let's recap shall we?:

Alien...good, if a little slow. Yes, that's right...SLOW!

James Cameron's Aliens was so overrated...it's basically a cheesy action film which really hasn't aged at all well. Horrible cheesy dialogue is supported by a ludicrous cast of characters and you want to talk about plot holes? I could fly a jumbo jet through Cameron's script so vast are the chasms in his plot.

Alien 3....I fell asleep. Need I say more?

Alien Resurrection...I didn't even bother watching it.

Prometheus...Easily the best Alien film since 'Alien'.

So again, I ask...what's so TERRIBLE about this film that is seems to have warranted such vile hatred from the fanboys? It was NEVER going to be what was in your dreams...because this film ISN'T your dream, it's Ridley Scott's. And I'm quite happy to go there with him.

the 1 star reviews are pretty accurate i'd say. i gave it 2/5, i think i was being a little generous though.

Spot on, P, apart from the "Aliens" prognosis. Yeah, it's dialogue is risible at times, but it's an amazing action film. I do not understand why Prometheus is getting these ridiculous one star reviews either, it ticked most of the boxes for me, entertainment-wise.
