A waste of 2 hours. Worst acting I've ever seen, full of cliches, plot holes , the characters are poorly developed and a stupid and childish story.

Very good movie. It's kind of philosophical, it makes you think about life and the origin of life. Very good ending, my mind was blown. You'll only get the ending though if you've watched another movie series by Ridley Scott. Very clever ending. Creative too. the plot was good, good paced movie.

A beautiful mess.

Prometheus is probably the one movie I can never make up my mind about.
I've seen it around four times now, and it strikes me as quite far-reaching.

Story-wise, this movie has such a huge scope, that it feels like it doesn't even know where it's going. Some scenes are great, others are poorly written, but the main premise and development of the movie are impressive.
The first few minutes of this film were fantastic. I absolutely love Ridley Scott's beautiful direction and the whole mysterious alien waterfall scene.
Other times the film is pretty bloated with bad characters and actors. The clear standouts are Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender, two of my favorite actors working today, especially Fassbender.
The movie tends to evolve very one-sidedly. There is so much focus on these...

First off, we know that a sequel is coming in the future, so maybe some of these questions will get answered. Also, I came to this film from a different view point than most, I have never seen the Alien films. But, I was not totally naive to the fact that those films, do exist and that this was supposed to be a prequel of sorts.

I have a few questions to pose, first, let's begin at the beginning and talk about the engineer who is seen drinking the black goo at the start of the film, then disintegrating into dust. Some people tend to think that he was "creating" life, because that's what the engineers do, they "create" life. But, what if that isn't necessarily the beginning, but the end? What if he was already infected and this was the engineers way of getting him off their ship? I...

"Prometheus" by Yojimbo

When a team of scientists decipher what appears to be an ancient map to another world, an exploration vessel is dispatched to investigate in the hope of finding answers as to the origins of the human race. Opinions of Prometheus vary wildly and I suspect that this has a lot to do with how you approach it. Anyone expecting another Alien film will no doubt find it disappointing as the "alien" as we know it does not make an appearance; in fact the original Alien franchise was essentially a blend of action and thriller with a Gothic horror spin. Prometheus is a far more straight-edge sci-fi film that may not necessarily appeal to mainstream audiences but hardcore genre fans will find plenty of weighty questions and high concepts to enjoy. The cast is very strong but once again Michael Fassben...

Movie God

Guys, I took this movie to be about the hazards of looking for big answers. Not getting them at the end was kind of the whole point. If you didn't understand that, you really should work on your viewing comprehension skills.

Also, they DID answer most of the questions raised (who created us, why, when, how). They just didn't answer one or two questions (why did the Engineers change their mind and what does the black goo do -- neither of which we questions posed at the BEGINNING at the movie, but rather towards the END, setting up the sequel).

I'm flabbergasted how many otherwise intelligent people didn't understand this movie simply because the characters were confused. The characters weren't able to explain what was going on, but the movie made it perfectly clear, I think.

And the last 10 seconds of the movie definitely made me cringe a bit on first viewing. Now I realize that Ridley put the essential puzzle piece at the very end (spoiler): If the humans and Engineers are genetically identical, then whatever was birthed from them and killed them 2,000 years ago on that planet was the same creature -- the xenomorph from 'Alien'. Missing piece of the puzzle.

I went into the movie not looking for answers but looking for a unique sci fi movie. I got it. There are definite flaws and some silly scenes that I could live without (the last 10 seconds were pointless) but it was extremely well acted and had more story than the original Alien could ever of had no matter how you slice it.
