Summary: Beautiful movie and a fresh look into the Alien universe without rehashing it. Unfortunately, the Blu-ray follows the trend to not offer as many special features, and has NO behind the scenes how to's. Instead, studios are opting more for gimmicks tied to BD Live or tablets, which I hate. Just another way to take our money and give us less.
Excerpt: To describe the story is very easy just think alien/The thing. except this time they are looking for those who created man ( star trek anybody ? ) . There is so much wrong with this film , The characters have no substance to them at all. their reactions to things happening is ridiculus. none of them seem to care about whats happening or whos dying or anything , they find mans creators but onlly 2 people care.
Excerpt: As a huge Ridley Scot fan, and a lover of the original Alien movie, I was eagerly looking forward to this movie. Sadly, it turned out to be a massive disappointment. What really lets this film down is its awful script, which manages to be confusing, illogical and implausable all at the same time.
Summary: I was told this film was meant to be fantastic in 3D but was really disappointed. I was told it was better than Avatar but didn't even come close! The story line itself was pretty boring too! I'm glad I've seen it now after all the hype about it but would not rush to watch it again anytime soon!!
Conclusion: Again, like another reviewer...this will be short. My husband bought this and I actually had no idea whatsoever what I was watching so I started with an open mind. The beginning had me hooked, and special effects are great. However, after a period of time, I caved and had to ask what the story line was, as I didn't have a clue. In my personal opinion, it was a glorified remake of the Alien films, and although a little dated, I think they were better.
Conclusion: It took ages to be and cost a fortune to complete and the vewier ends up like the ships crew, completely puzzled and bound to end in doom. I was old enough to see Alien at the cinema way back. It is a classic and the follow ons were just to cash in and in turn each getting weaker as the series progressed.
Summary: I am constantly astonished by the way people buy into the "hype", almost as though it would be bad form to say something bad once a movie studio has built a film up so hugely, pre-release. I found Prometheus to be a real disappointment for the most part, with cliched characters and predictable storyline, along with details that seemed ridiculous such as the mini operating theatre in Charlize Theron's costly semi-detached area of the spaceship, supposedly designed to...
Summary: Prometheus, the titan, was a champion for humanity. Prometheus, the movie, is not a champion movie. Characters are flat and undeveloped (and there are too many) and the acting is average; uses too many elements of the original Alien with little refinement; the story line is very thin and simple (may be it needed another 20-30 minutes); photography and sound are good. After reading the flicks review I feel like I've watched a different movie!
Can't believe the ratings this terrible film is getting
13 November 2012
Conclusion: This film is simply dull, I can't believe the ratings that some people are giving it. I love he alien films especially the first 2, it almost feels as though linking this to alien was an after thought. It's almost like they said its set in space, it's directed by Ridley Scott and distributed by fox how can we link it in. What's more the performance of lead actress Noomi Rapace is terrible and Michael Fassbender is only slightly better. Steer clear! You have been warned.
Summary: Som SF-fan hade jag stora förhoppningar på den här filmen; dels för att se förhistorien till Alien (som är en riktigt, riktigt höjdarfilm imho), dels för att den är producerad av Ridley Scott, men filmen levererar inte. En stor besvikelse! Det känns som om filmen bara är en transportsträcka till Prometheus 2 som tydligen skall dyka upp 2015.
