what the others say
"There's no denying that Prometheus will make for a perfectly entertaining night at the movies -- but we were promised so much more."
"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."
"Ridley Scott has counter-evolved his 1979 classic Alien into something more grandiose, more elaborate - but less interesting."
