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]

“..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]

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]

“..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]

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]
