I was so excited when I first caught wind that Ridley Scott was coming out with Promethius! I saw 'Alien' & 'Aliens' when they first came out and continue to watch them each and every time they are shown on TV. I enjoyed Promethius, once the story got under way. Sadly, it took so long to set the story up, that the movie is just about over when the aliens start ramping up! What's up with that? So guess I'll just have to wait for Promethius 2. Mmmmm.

Worth every penny! If you love ALIENS as much as I do, a movie well written, so that its as realistic as possible, with Awesome "space" images, and cOol ALIENS, in other words the next best thing to actually traveling space, then this is a movie for us !!!! !!!!

You can take it both ways. In Greek mythology Prometheus was the Titan who created man out of clay and stole fire from Zeus to give to man. He was punished by Zeus for these transgressions. The "Engineers" of this story created life on earth as well as a biological weapon of mass destruction which turned on their maker (spoiler sorry) . This is but a part of the movie which is open to a sequel which probably will proceed along dual tracks. The planet on which the alien ship is found in the original is NOT the planet of this film (the weapons containers are not present and the "Space Jockey's" chest was burst) How did the Alien queen get to that planet from the planet in Prometheus? What will happen to the "Engineers'" home planet when a human arrives in their ship replete with their own weapon? These are subjects for the sequel(s). Why did the Engineers plan mankind's destruction (after they went to the trouble to create mankind)? Why the stellar map? SEE THIS MOVIE AND YOU'LL BE HUNGRY FOR SEQUEL(S).

I don't think the synopsis listed correctly summarizes the movie at all. Visually spectacular but derivative of 2001, Alien and others of the genre. Enjoy the effects and see it in 3-D

If you've seen Alians you aren't going to enjoy this .It's a bad remake. It even ends with a creature very close to the Alien creature with the same head. Don' waste your money.

I have been waiting to see this film for the past six months, ever since I learned that Ridley Scott was revisiting the "Alien" series. That being said, I was hoping for and got something that went beyond the original theme, that has been repeated too much already. I wanted to see where it all began and how it happened. This film delivered that and more. It challenged the idea of divine creation versus Evolution, looked at humanism and society, and cemented it all together with a great story line, and great acting. I've read several user reviews from naysayers with nothing but negative things to say about it. They obviously didn't get it, and were looking for something simple that they could understand because they don't have the insight or understanding to look beyond a singular plot line. Don't believe them, just go see it. If you have a basic understanding of the details of the first film then this one will make sense, and further explain the setting and background storyline of the original. And of course in classic Ridley Scott fashion, the attention to detail is spot-on, special effects are exceptional, and there are some scary moments as well, to keep you at the edge of your seat. Think "Evolution of the Species" and have fun with it!

Take every sci-fi space cliche and toss 'em together with the typical tentacled slimy monster, born of course from being implanted in a human, and that's this movie. A waste of an afternoon.

The 3D wasn't bad, at least it wasn't loaded with "gotcha" 3D moments like some 3D movies are. Was not worth the $11.00 I paid for the 3D ticket. Should've caught an earlier 2D version for about half the price. It's a bit slow for the first 90 minutes and then picks up a little speed but no where near the intensity and sheer thrill of the original and it's three sequels; so if you had too much soda while waiting for the movie to begin after a half hour of previews then to to the restroom anytime before the last 30 minutes because not much is happening during that time that a quick break will ruin. This movie isn't hard to figure out since it's a prequel and has to fit into storyline and I figured out 99% of the movie by watching a few trailers and refreshing my memory by watching the first two movies the last couple days. It answers a couple questions and poses even more and they will try to answer in the sequel to this if it scores high enough at the box office because it's left wide open for a sequel (didn't see that one coming). Storywise I'm giving it 3 stars because it felt like a combination of a Star Trek away mission that went horribly wrong, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Mission to Mars; not an Alien film... not at all. Special effectswise I'm giving it 5 stars. No problem at all with the sfx. Too bad they didn't invest some more money into the story.
