As some of you know, I had the chance to attend a press showing of Prometheus and I’ve written up a some-what detailed review:

“It’s certainly been a fun road to here. First it was an Alien prequel, then it’s a completely new original movie and then it becomes clear that it is in fact related to Alien. However, the important thing to take into consideration when watching Prometheus is that while it is connected to Alien, it is in no way an Alien movie.”

I’ve tried not to give away too many spoilers but I’d say it’s detailed. Have a read of my review and check out my opinion on the movie.

Guys

Not reading any more, off to see it in 2 hours  ;D

I've not been that active at all on the forum but would like to thank you all for the posts and discussions.
I've been reading daily for my fix. You guys have made it very interesting.

Only problem for today is I have a bad cough so if anyone in Aberdeen viewing this morning hears me, I promise to keep the coughing low  :D

Cheers

Gary

I agree with you Completely Corp except one thing. I loved the score and that generated that extra half a star for me.

So, we can expect another "AvP" like movie with Prometheus ?? because many reviews are mixed , mixed positive and many are negative. Oh dear. Too much hype will kill you....

Comparing this to AvP really would be dumb thing to do just because of the fact that this has way more value to the movie.
AvP was nothing more than a fancy mashup that turned out not that great. Prometheus is a fancy movie that just makes sure you will be leaving with many more questions :)

Great review. I totally agree that some things seemed to be glossed over.

There was so much to enjoy in the movie but maybe it was the hype, maybe the tenuous link to the franchise but i left the cinema (at 3 in the morning) feeling a little...underwhelmed.

Fair review, Corporal Hicks!
Perhaps, I wouldn't be so critical about octopus creature appearance, tentacles could be if not scary, then giddy and certainly unpleasant.
And I absulutely second your opinion about super-grandiose score and unpropelly written characters' reactions and attitudes.

Its a movie that does ask more than it answers, for sure... Spent alot of time thinking about this movie after watching the midnight screening last night. I can't help but feel this was made originally with a Part 2 in mind... ill be very surprised if they don't announce a sequel soon, because there was so much left unanswered... Yeah it had the Alien link, with the birth of the 'Proto Alien', but your still left with that massive gap between that scene and Alien. First of all, its not the same planet as Alien, second, when they find the Engineer in Alien, its at the seat, so alot more goes on and I want to see it.

A wasted opportunity. Absolutely dissappointed.

A great set up, first hour of interesting plot, feels like its going somewhere then.

I just HATE how the characters are wrote really badly, people just dont seem to react to things that have happened in the plot. Its just crap.
