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]

LEGEND :

“..while he arguably fails to rein in his leading man (or half of him), screenwriter-turned-director Helgeland has a light touch, leavening the ultra-violence - and there are gory scenes - with a flair for absurdity..”
by Helen O'Hara [Daily Telegraph]

THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED :

“..this film is so stupid it may burst your appendix..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BEFORE WE GO :

“..Evans and Eve are always charming, but Brooke's real-world problems ring false in a story held together by chintzy fatalism and the logic of a first draft..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]

BREAK POINT :

“..Jay Karas doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel as he puts this odd couple through the paces of getting in shape and reconciling old wounds, but he's helped by some laugh-out-loud quirk in Gene Hong's screenplay, nice comic chemistry between the two leads..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

STEVE JOBS: MAN IN THE MACHINE :

“..sharp as always from Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

CHLOE AND THEO :

“..borrowing themes from "Candide," it makes us wonder why bad things happen to good people. Including movie audiences..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS :

“..the film takes a long time to get going because of all the prolonged, glib chit-chat that loses whatever satirical edge it might have initially possessed..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [LA Times]

CONTRACTED: PHASE II :

“..has contracted many of the same problems with the first film - it's plagued with pacing and character issues - but still has enough gags for the home video audience..”
by Brad Miska [Bloody Disgusting]

EVEREST :

“..in narrative terms it's messy - as true stories tend to be. The dramatic focus is split between around half a dozen characters based on real people and it's not clear who we should root for..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

BEASTS OF NO NATION :

“..artful, accomplished but not entirely sustained adaptation..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
