Review rate : B+

“..this is jumbo-size science fiction, with a handsome, impermeable titanium gleam - and a thick coating of creationism lite..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
4.5 of 5

“..this is a remarkably scary and eye-popping headrush of a movie, an experience that offers a maximum adrenaline boost at the same time as it engages your intelligence..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
2.5 of 4

“..the sexual subtext is still very much there - every nook and cranny seems to resemble an orifice..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
3 of 4

“..the ending isn't squishy scary or deeply satisfying. Bummer..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..somber, spectacular and ponderous,"Prometheus" virtually thrums with the desire to become a classic of science-fiction cinema..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]
“..Prometheus is magnificent. Shot in 3D but without the director taking the process into account in his conceptions or execution, the film absorbs and uses the process seamlessly..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..part philosophical treatise, part pulp fiction, part pure horror show, Ridley Scott's"Prometheus" ends up with less to say than it thinks it does..”
by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times]
3 of 4

“..its grand sets and intricate effects are dazzling, and in at least one scene, Scott almost manages to top himself..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
“..inviting comparison to The Tree of Life's formation-of-the-universe digression or 2001: A Space Odyssey's monolith overture..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
3 of 4

“..flawed, but stupidity cannot be numbered among its missteps..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..a lot of the pleasure of "Prometheus" is in that hovering..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
2 of 4

“.."Prometheus" is just big, beautiful, and empty..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
4 of 5

“.."Prometheus" is a good movie, sometimes very good. It's just not a great movie..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
3 of 5

“.."elegant" and "stately" are two adjectives that won't mean a thing to the potential teen audience for "Prometheus," but they're the most apt..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OUT OF THE DARK :

“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

THE SALVATION :

“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

EVERLY :

“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

BLUEBIRD :

“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE LAZARUS EFFECT :

“..still, "The Lazarus Effect," clocking in at a brief 86 minutes, doesn't go far enough, isn't scary enough and has mad scientists who just aren't mad enough..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
