Great film with lot's of extras on the 3D version,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prometheus - Collector's Edition (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + Digital Copy) [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
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
The Peter weyland files
Weyland corp archive
Plus a Mobile app
So if you like your extras then the 3D version is the way to go

If I don't have a blu-ray player, but want to see the 7 hrs of extras, would this version be any good to me? Thanks

Nope, that's not going to help ye, for said extras are also on BluRays. So without a BR player, ye won't be able to watch them. What ye would be able to see would just be the DVD present in the set, if any, which has only the movie (in widescreen and 5.1 Dolby Digital) and very few deleted scenes just over 10 minutes (compared to an hour's worth of deleted scenes on the 4-disc Collector's Edition BR-set released for this monster of a motion-picture).
Had it been 6/7 years back, we could have easily gotten a 4-disc Collector's Edition DVD-set, just like Kingdom Of Heaven's Director's Cut 4-disc DVD-set, but now they just suck up to BR, when in fact, 95% of humans can't even afford a BR set-up! By the looks of it, they would now suck up to 3D BR alone for all extras!
Home Media's good old entertainment-value's long lost to nasty blasted corporate greed, and now-a-days it's a bit more than ever, and we hates it! Oh, yes we does! We swears on The Precious! :-( :-B

Don't be so harsh, human, just reply directly. If the question irritated ye, don't reply. Isn't that better than being Mr. Grumpy Grumperson? :-P peace! Cheerio!

I'd love to see all of the extras but unfortunately the film itself is so mediocre (even though it looks fabulous) that I'm hardly going to buy a Blu-Ray set-up and Blu-Ray version of Prometheus just to see them. Shame on the home media companies for trying to force a lot of people to change to a format they don't want or need - they'll probably end up forcing the same people to look at pirated versions instead. A word of warning to the film industry and home media companies: NEVER try to force your customers to do something they don't want to do - you might be surprised at the outcome!

Very helpful, am just going to order the 3D Blu-ray now. Not sure why there are people who say they can't afford these set-ups as you can get a BD player for £50 or something if you want, and it'll play all your old DVDs too! Anyway, thanks for the info in your review.

Good points Mirror man,I have a Blue Ray but no 3D or Surround but sometimes the picture is grainy on some Blue Ray discs and the sound loud in action scenes and low in the dialogue parts maybe to give that cinema sound through a Surround System,they seem to be pushing people down this route,Skinny TVs with poor sound and DVDs with no Extras!,i am just left think i may have well stuck with DVDs and while Blue Ray may have a Better Picture when it is not Grainy the films of late seem made for Blue Ray,all Fancy Special effects And nothing else,Prometheus was one of them,a pretentious mess which i am starting to think blue rays are as well!.
