313 out of 394 reviews are overall positive.  The film currently holds a 79% fresh score with a 7.1 average rating.  Blogspot and Wordpress reviews are omitted.  Top Critic Reviews (as per RT) are marked in bold

Unofficial Consensus:
Quote
The film may be asking way more questions than it can handle and, at times, suffers from an incoherent plot and pacing, but Prometheus maintains itself as an amazing sci-fi spectacle, featuring shining performances from Rapace, Theron, and a particularly engrossing play from Fassbender as the android David.

Seems there's a lot of mixed opinions. Some love it and some dislike it.

We may have to wait for more reactions.

That's what I got out of it as well. I can't wait to hear what Alien fans have to say about it...

Maybe this movie will get the same reviews as Alien Resurrection.

French reviews are mixed. I would not be surprised if this is the general consensus. Hope I'm wrong.

It takes something special, like District 9, to blow peoples minds universally.

I doubt that. This close to release, it would make more sense to just show everything, I think.
