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]

MAPS TO THE STARS :

“..looks sharp but, in the end, comes off more like a prank than a coherent take on 21st century Hollywood, even if there are crumbs of truth and wit scattered throughout it..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

ANIMAL :

“..Animal feels like every other standard creature feature..”
by Patrick Cooper [Bloody Disgusting]

HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2 :

ALL THE WILDERNESS :

“..in spite of the tatty "coming of age" familiarity, Johnson's vision seems fresh and vibrant..”

DIGGING UP THE MARROW :

“..a playfully self-reflexive exercise whose endless in-jokes will best be appreciated by only the most ardent genre aficionados..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

KOBE BRYANT'S MUSE :

“..certainly timely, if also largely whitewashed - a star-approved, produced and guided tour that sacrifices editorial perspective for up-close-and-personal access..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]

THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL :

“..busier but also blander and duller than its predecessor..”
by Leslie Felperin [Hollywood Reporter]

MCFARLAND, USA :

“..a feel-good movie that earns all those good feelings..”
by James Rocchi [The Wrap]
