Theron, who has clearly found her comfort zone with ice-cold roles, is strong here....PROMETHEUS belongs to the protean Fassbender, who excels as David, the spaceship's resident android.
Los Angeles Times
4 stars out of 4 -- [I]t's a seamless blend of story, special effects and pitch-perfect casting, filmed in sane, effective 3-D that doesn't distract.
Rating: 4.5/5 -- A magical bit of science fiction that Scott uses to start widening the world he began in 1979 with Alien. Full Review
Father Son Holy Gore
Rating: B- -- The plot has a lot of very intriguing concepts and the writers and Scott have come up with a myriad of ways to organically integrate much of the beloved Alien iconography while still forging glorious new images. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- A fascinating journey, to be sure, but its mix of big ideas with horror and suspense never quite meshes together. Full Review
The Dispatch (Lexington, NC)
4 stars out of 5 -- [A] gorgeous, ambitious sci-fi blockbuster that wows with spectacle instead of primal horror.
Even if the movie's logic ultimately spirals down into a vortex of hysteria, horror and hokum, I enjoyed the bulldozer intensity of the climax, which barely keeps a lid on the crackpot cult movie that's wrestling for the soul of this... blockbuster. Full Review
A team of space explorers embarks on a fantastic voyage to the edge of the universe after making a profound discovery that hints at the true origins of the human race in this belated pseudo-prequel to director Ridley Scott's 1979 sci-fi classic ALIEN. Isle of Skye, Scotland: 2089. Archeologists Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and Charlie Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green) discover a cave drawing featuring a mysterious star pattern not found in our solar system. Upon comparing the image with similar other ones found at different archeological digs all over the planet, the pair realizes that they all match perfectly. They're convinced that the image is an invitation, and set out on a high tech Weyland Industries ship called Prometheus to - just maybe - unlock the mysteries of mankind's origins on Earth. Flash forward to Christmas Day, 2093. The crew of Prometheus awakens from stasis to learn they have arrived at their destination. With highly-intelligent android David (Michael Fassbinder) assisting the mission, and chilly Weyland representative Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron) calling the shots, Captain Janet (Idris Elba) brings the ship down to the surface, landing next to a line of awe-inspiring structures that appear to have been built by intelligent beings. But when a small crew led by Elizabeth and Charlie explore the remote planet, the artifacts they find threaten to contradict everything mankind had been taught about its origins. But there's a secret in this chamber that's lain dormant for centuries, and now that it senses life, it finally sees an opportunity to escape. If it does, the trip that was supposed to answer al of our biggest questions about life could also be the one that seals the fate of every living creature on planet Earth.
