Too long and slow to "stand alone",
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prometheus - Collector's Edition (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + Digital Copy) [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Long movie and long viewing time until it goes from slightly boring to a bit more interesting. It does not manage to keep you on the edge of your seat.
However, if there is plan...
... within the entertainment industry,
... to make a sequel, in the near future,
... for which this movie can work as "the introduction" to the "new" alien universe,
then Prometheus may yet redeem itself.
Otherwise it may feel as a big budget waste of time. Like watching only the first movie in "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy. In other words, I was left wanting more, but not with enough cliffhanger to feel certain to get it.
On its own it is not up to the entertainment standard of previous Alien movies.
To compensate a litte, Promotheus shows a very high production value.
