I watched the movie "Prometheus" today to see what I was missing from "Alien: Covenant". I did not know "Prometheus" was the first of the prequels to the "Alien" series. Watching "Covenant" first, I felt I was missing information. Now watching this I was able to piece most of the story together and how the Xenomorph creatures came to be. Like all the movies in the series, it starts off slow, and then turns into an action filled bloody nightmare. I really like the writer's perspective on the concept of human/alien/artificial evolution and it's purpose. The Xenomorphs have haunted my dreams since I was 7 years old, and watching this movie still sparked that inner fear of those creatures. I need to stop watching these movies alone at night. Another sci fi series that really questions about the creation of androids and why I feel it's a bad idea! As a fan of the "Alien " series, I am glad to have this movie in my collection. Not only are they horror stories, you can still nerd out on what-if concepts of life.
Boring movie. I am not sure what drugs the people are on that rated it with 5 stars? I thought since Charlize Theron was in it, it should be semi good right? I should have known better. She really depends on her looks to get her by in most movies. And she is pretty so I understand. Seemed like an awful lot of this movie was "borrowed" from Alien. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. Sorry, that I paid for it.

I watched it with my fiance and by the end I was a little embarrassed I'd made him sit through it. The cinematics was, admittedly, great, but nothing really happened. It's the prelude to Aliens or something, so we do get that little "ah ha" moment, but overall I felt cheated that I'd sat through the whole movie only to be denied a satisfiying interaction with our alien forebears. My investment wasn't worth the payoff in the end. 3 stars for great acting and brilliant effects, but the end fell disappointingly short.

The movie was disappointing on a number of levels, but let’s do the good stuff first: terrific CGI. Umm, that’s about it. Now disappointments: SPOILERS AHEAD the story was confusing at points: 1) at one point David (Michael Fassbender), the artificial human, spikes Dr Holoway’s (Logan Marshall-Green) drink which will kill him but, apparently, not before allowing him to impregnate his partner, Dr Shaw (Noomi Rapace) with a truly horrid creature, which turns out to be the progenitor of the aliens in the movies of that series. Where did they get that technology? 2) Dr Shaw sees the ultrasound and promptly gives herself a Caesarian Section, after which she runs and jumps and, other than a few grunts and groans, is no worse for the wear. 3) the scientists lost in the pyramid find a new creature and promptly start ‘playing’ with it. Really? Really? What utter nonsense. And yes, it kills them and some others (I said there’d be spoilers). 4) Dr Shaw knows from sad experience that she cannot trust David, yet when he says he can fly the alien craft, she carries off his body and head (despite her recent C Section), with the suggestion that the two will be reunited, so that he can fly her off to some 'home world' where she is going to ask the aliens why they decided to eliminate humans. They were just responsible for savaging the entire crew, but she thinks she can get some answers from them (duh). And why would he not just fly her to earth when he's put back together, which he wanted to do? I was also disappointed with the acting. I thought Noomi Rapace was terrific in the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series. She is not as good here - the role didn't suit her, IMO. Charlize Theron was not convincing at all. She’s pretty, which is poor praise for a movie star. Idris Elba did well, but he didn’t save the movie. The others were just good. Overall, unless you are a huge Alien fan or a huge sci-fi fan, I don’t think this will be satisfying.

Chariots of the God! Ancient astronauts put us here and now we’re going to look for them. There’s an artificial person whose prime directive is, “Oh, what the Hell.” Can’t say much more without including spoilers. I think it was conceived as a Big Statement picture, but if they ever had one it got lost somewhere. There is a very explicit but shallow Faith versus, well, Chariots of the Gods theme that never really comes to anything. It’s watchable enough, with some scary monsters and action and spaceships, but it lacks the engaging, gritty atmosphere of the original.
I didn't love it till I watched it a couple times. I was more drawn in as I figured out this movie of the origins of "Alien" and the human race. This is good science fiction-not a lot of explosions etc etc. It really grew on me-sometimes are favorite movies grow on us as we figure them out. Once you see what this movie is about you see the performances as fantastically played. Great actors and director. Watch the story and enjoy, aliens aren't in the machinery, but the horror is there....when you realize this sets the foundation for what's to come.

This is not a review of the movie. I'm not sure if I have a defective DVD or if it was scratched in manufacturing. I have seen times when there is a flaw in a pressing of a DVD and all copies within that pressing suffer the same issue at the exact same place. Most of the movie looks just fine, but there are 2 places where the video has artifacts, one much more severe than the other.
- There are no visible physical defects to the disc itself which is why I think it is a bad pressing. - I don't see a flood of other reviewers indicating the same thing, however, so maybe it is not a bad pressing.
I don't want to be a troll and 1-star review it, but I felt it needs warning.

A very disappointing sci-fi film. The major error was with the ridiculous hotchpotch of crew characters, most of whom in real life would never have been chosen for such an important interplanetary mission. Their characters were as though they were dragged out of prison to work in the ship. The horror aspect was way-over-the-top stupid.

Has a different feel to it than the other Alien films. Never going to have the same impact of Alien and Aliens for sure, but as a sci-fi and general Aliens fan, I was entertained. Have watched it quite a few times. Very cheesy dialogue in places it has to be said and that may have turned a few people against it.
The strong central character of Elizabeth Shaw holds it together really. She is the new Ripley. Interesting to see the origins of how the Alien monster developed. If you’ve no knowledge of the other Aliens film or have no previous attachment, this could be a tough watch.
Splits the room this film, but I loved it. Great soundtrack too.
Prometheus is a fine prequel. The scenes and the spaceship were splendid. I've seen a deleted scene of this film. I wished it had been included. (The Xenomorph part) That is my only nit-pick. The very dramatic scene towards the end was superb. Lots of fantastic things that gave the film some great sci-fi poke.
Ich sah den Film das erste mal viele Jahre nach Alien.... Als in Alien die Crew ins Raumschiff steigt und die Lebensform entdeckt spiegelt sich dies exakt zum Film Prometheus wieder was ich sehr gut fand. Die Fassung ansich von Prometheus inkl Filmmusik ist viel besser als die des Nachfolgers Alien Covenant. Jedoch was tierisch nervt sind die beiden geologen die in diesen Film fehl am Platze sind. Den alten Mr. Weyland hätte wohl auch besser der alte aus Alien vs Predator spielen können...hätte besser gepasst... Alles in allem ein interessanter und fesselnder Film mit tollen Effekten. Ich kann für Ridley Scott Fans den film nur empfehlen und er ist meiner Meinung nach viel besser als Alien Covenant wo am Ende der teuflische David es irgendwie schafft in den Körper von Walter zu schlüpfen....wie auch immer???.... Ein Stern Abzug für die schlechten Schauspieler aber die Geschmäcker sind ja bekanntlich verschieden!
3.0 out of 5 starsThey created us then they, tried to destroy us . I want answers?

Not a bad prequel and introduction, to the original iconic classic ALIEN. The crew PROMETHEUS , land on the planet LV426. To invested and find out answers, to on who created us. But they get more than they bargained for.
2.0 out of 5 starsFantastic production values, a shame about the script

The film looks and sounds absolutely fantastic on blu ray and is worth watching just for that. Unfortunately I found the dialogue often clunky and at times laughably trite and It felt to me like we'd seen a lot of the imagery and ideas before in Alien. It's worth watching once but for me it's not among Ridley Scott's best work.

This movie got a lot of bad press on release, a lot of it unjustified, the movie has everything you could want in a scifi flick. I saw this the first time in 2d and was impressed but in 3d its an absolute feast for the eyes. A must have for any 3d fan!
