Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Horror Sci-Fi - This science fiction thriller is connected to the long-running Alien series, but it is not a completely direct prequel; also, it is not as action-oriented as the later films in the series but more of a slower paced film like Ridley Scott's first original Alien. Noomi Rapace is the lead here while some more familiar faces in the cast as Charlize Theron have smaller roles. Language and some bloody violence, not to mention disturbing images and creature effects, make the film much too intense for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Its visuals and special effects can stand toe-to-toe with any of the season's spectacles, but are audiences ready for something with an intelligent, thought-provoking screenplay where the action is secondary?

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good 'Prometheus' is a magnificent science-fiction film, all the more intriguing because it raises questions about the origin of human life and doesn't have the answers.

USA Today Full Review
Good The special effects in Prometheus may be the most dazzling of any film this year, and not since Avatar has 3-D technology been put to such vividly mesmerizing use.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 92 moviegoers:
TEENS:The ladies enjoyed "Prometheus" very much. All of them rated it very high. Unfortunately, about a third of the guys rated it only average, which isn't bad but it is somewhat disappointing. Still, two-thirds DID enjoy it very much with most of these loving it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Three-quarters of the guys enjoyed it very much with half indicating they loved it. The female reviews are slightly lower but close to how the guys rated it. More of them were somewhat disappointed.
ADULTS:These are decent male reviews but certainly nothing special. About a third loved it. Another third indicated they enjoyed it very much. Of the last third, half rated it only average and the other half rated it below average which is definitely not good. The female reviews are also not great. Only about a third truly loved it. Fortunately, close to half rated it above average, which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. Unfortunately, a significant percentage rated it low to very low. I suspect some of these low reviews may be due to ladies, who aren't fans of this type of movie, seeing it with a male who is a fan.
