More Info:
  • Roger Ebert

    A magnificent science-fiction film, all the more intriguing because it raises questions about the origin of human life and doesn't have the answers.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Scott briskly blends the high-minded stuff with impressive boo-and-goo sequences, ratcheting tension in tight spots and dark caverns.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Gorgeous set pieces thrill the senses, but there is philosophical inquiry as well. "Alien" was, after all, just "Jaws" in space, but Prometheus ponders where evil comes from and how it conquers its makers.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Though Prometheus follows "Alien's" story beats, it's a looser and less satisfying story, more intellectual than visceral, and not fully satisfying on either level. But in part, that's because it's trying to do so much more.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    This is jumbo-size science fiction, with a handsome, impermeable titanium gleam - and a thick coating of creationism lite.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Prometheus is an unquestionable good time, one of the best big-screen science fiction accomplishments since 'Avatar.'

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • David Denby

    Scott may always have had an eye on the box office, but from "Alien" and "Thelma & Louise" on, he has made women into heroines. In that regard, he's still ahead of the curve. Rapace's scene is a classic of its kind; it tops John Hurt's notorious misfortunes in "Alien."

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    We are left, after all the propulsive action, with great turns by Theron and Rapace, and a tightly wound turn by Fassbender, whose eerie, poetically impish mechanical man might have burst from Bradbury's conscience.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    I really enjoyed watching Prometheus almost the whole way through, and I'm looking forward to seeing it again. It's an enjoyable thrill ride, slicked up with a thin veneer of Asking the Big Questions. But do its so-called heroes really have to be such blithering New Age idiots? Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Prometheus is a good movie, sometimes very good. It's just not a great movie.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Although Ridley Scott's 3D visual feast is no classic, the oozing alien tentacles hit all the right sci-fi horror notes.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Jonathan Crocker

    Flawlessly designed, with the beautiful 3D cinematography contrasting the clean white futurism of Prometheus' interiors with the black corporeal surfaces of the alien catacombs.

 It might not pack the unbearable menace or blazing horror of the saga's first two movies, but it utterly eclipses the last two. It's exciting, tense and fully impregnated for sequels.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    There's definite mastery here, but it's hardly a masterpiece.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Scott seduces audiences with thought-provoking possibilities, then pulls a bait-and-switch, subbing in a familiar monster thriller and fiery explosion-fest.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The ending isn't squishy scary or deeply satisfying. Bummer. Otherwise, Prometheus – especially in its spellbinding first hour – kicks ass so hard and often that it's impossible not to be thrilled by it.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    Prometheus is breezy and comely and sufficiently clever to mitigate most qualms, and Fassbender, especially, is wonderful.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    The real stars here are Scott's behind-the-curtain crew, who fill every frame with tech-savvy details and take the sets to another dimension with immersive 3-D imagery.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The best of Prometheus is nonverbal and purely atmospheric: Fassbender's "Lawrence of Arabia"-loving character bouncing a basketball as he patrols the spaceship while his human cohorts finish up their two-year nap.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Prometheus is the antithesis of the "big, dumb summer movie." Its visuals and special effects can stand toe-to-toe with any of the season's spectacles, but are audiences ready for something with an intelligent, thought-provoking screenplay where the action is secondary? Prometheus is flawed, but stupidity cannot be numbered among its missteps.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    It's a different sort of experience: a stately, somewhat plodding but endurable science-fiction saga.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Prometheus, unlike its predecessors, does not wear its themes lightly. It pushes too hard for significance, which is dicey in and of itself for genre material and contrasts badly with the standard nature of some of the story's plotting.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The virtuosity on display makes the weakness of the story all the more frustrating. I'll avoid spoilers here, but Prometheus kind of spoils itself with twists and reversals that pull the movie away from its lofty, mind-blowing potential.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Ridley Scott has made two iconic sci-fi films, "Alien" (1979) and "Blade Runner" (1982). Trying for a hat trick with Prometheus, he comes up short. I'll say this much for it – it's not boring.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    It is Rapace, the Swedish actress who gained worldwide recognition as Lisbeth Salander in the original adaptation of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," who ends up the true heroine of Prometheus.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    The script, partly credited to Lost's Damon Lindelof, is so filled with talky lectures about divinity (and boner plot holes) that you realize, with embarrassment, that Scott, at age 74, wants to join the cosmic company of Terrence Malick. Does he not think that making a drum-tight horror film was ambitious enough?

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    My advice to Scott and Lindelof is, Try harder - to bring the characters as well as the creatures alive; to extend the grandeur of that music-of-the-sphere scene to an entire movie; to devise new horror-film money shots; and to scare the crap out of me.

    Time Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    It's imaginative only in a stiff, expensive way. Scott vests the movie with an admirable degree of integrity – it doesn't feel like a cheap grab for our moviegoing dollars – but it doesn't inspire anything so vital as wonder or fear, either.

    Movieline Full Review
  • James Rocchi

    Beneath the hype and promises, however, it's almost a letdown that the actual film is merely very good: a better-than-average 3D big-budget space tale.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Ian Nathan

    Buffeted by a lack of suspense, threadbare characters, and a very poor script, the stunning visuals, gloopy madness, and sterling Fassbenderiness can't prevent Prometheus feeling like Alien's poor relation.

    Empire Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    Ridley Scott has counter-evolved his 1979 classic Alien into something more grandiose, more elaborate – but less interesting. In place of scariness there is wonderment; in place of tension there is hugely ambitious design; in place of unforgettable shocks there are reminders of the original's unforgettable shocks.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Prometheus is more interested in piling on big questions than in answering them. It's deep without being particularly smart, although the dazzling design and special effects keep you from noticing that basic flaw until at least an hour in.

    Slate Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Try as it might, the movie is hardly profound, and the murky atmosphere and the leaden pace drag things down.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Prometheus, in efficient 3-D, places most of its bets on the wonders that today's visual artists and technicians can work with digital tools. This tale of an interstellar search asks cosmic questions about the meaning of life, but comes up with lame answers in a script that screams attention-deficit disorder.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    All the God-talk and philosophical musings about morality and "meeting our makers" aside, Prometheus is primarily about delivering those visceral, terrifying jolts. That it does so without generating the taut suspense and moody atmosphere of its antecedents qualifies as one of its greatest failings.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    It's clumsy revisionism. As storytelling, its simplistic characters and ludicrous situations would embarrass a ninth-grader shooting a short film on a digital phone. Not one of its alleged revelations has the power to surprise.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    You may feel fussy asking for a coherent narrative, though, because director Ridley Scott delivers so many of the shocking set pieces that are the real hallmark of the series.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    It's a promising epic that ends with what feels like a lie. In short, it's a glorious mess well worth seeing, but light-years away from what fans were expecting.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Watching Prometheus is like opening a deluxe gift box from Tiffany's to find a mug from the dollar store.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The whole of Prometheus - which was written by Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof, and rips off everything from "2001: A Space Odyssey" to "Event Horizon" - feels derivative and passé: The film is a shiny, high-tech relic.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    With this overreaching Prometheus, Scott seems a bit like David carefully arranging his hair in imitation of O'Toole's Lawrence. He can still mimic the appearance of an epic, noble, important movie - but the appearance is all.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Elaborately conceived from a visual standpoint, Ridley Scott's first sci-fier in the three decades since "Blade Runner" remains earthbound in narrative terms, forever hinting at the existence of a higher intelligence without evincing much of its own.

    Variety Full Review
  • John Semley

    It aspires to Stanley Kubrick's "2001", but in its maddeningly unresolved plot threads and cornball cosmic mysticism, it lands closer to "Mission to Mars" -though Prometheus lacks any action set piece as gripping as the Brian De Palma film's sentient sandstorm.
