Summary: Visually the movie was great. The story was pretty good. Some parts were hard to follow. But they tie it all in at the end. The movie was a little slow at first but then the action started in. The was it ended there could be a part 2, but if they did it would be pretty low budget.
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: Ok after seeing this film i guess the synopsis should read... for those that like movies that resemble a 1000 piece puzzle. After seeing this film you will see what i mean as we are shown alot by director Ridley Scott but not given much in answers which along with the ending leads me to believe that Scott plans to direct a sequel sometime in the future. Hey!
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.
Summary: The quality of the products Blu-ray +DVD+Digital Copy was as good as can be expected. Shipping was as expected. However the movie itself left a little to be desired-the special effects were great but nothing better than I've seen in other movies.
Summary: As some poster pointed out, the content on this disk is difficult to access. Not impossible, I tried it out on several Blu-ray players at home and it took much longer than usual for the system to recognize it. That said, the movie is really bad. Visually it is very cool and the opening music almost has a Blade Runner feel to it....but then the story starts unfolding and you quickly realize that they didn't put any thought into the characters.
