Great but with flaws,
This review is from: Prometheus (Blu-ray + Digital Copy) [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
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.

Same - I really liked it and I think in a few years opinions will change on this one.

I don't think it's acceptable to label any poor review of this film as 'silly','stupid' or 'childish'. I felt this was a poorly executed and rather boring film, a huge let down and I'd give it 1 star without hesitation. Maybe you think that makes me stupid.

This film should of been called "pretentious" as it was in no way as exciting as advertised. Yes the special effects were good and a few good performances. But it was a highly predictable and unimaginative film as a whole. Sci-fi film with a brain is a bold statement as everyone I know saw pretty much all the "twists and turns" coming. Highly disappointing. This is a 2.5 star film at the best!

Diana King has learned a new word "Pleb" thanks to the press, and now uses it all the time, much like a child that has learned a new naughty word and parrots it out to see the reaction it causes.

Er, no I don't use it all the time, just this time, and it is not a new word to me, I was already aware of it. Thanks for the lecture C Elder, your name suits you, as you come across as an old fogey with no sense of humour, but as arrogant and rude as Andrew Mitchell.

Exactly. Completely missunderstood by the masses
