First "Prometheus" Reviews are Here - Find Out What is Being Said!

New postby BooMan » Fri Jun 01, 2012 12:20 am

Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" has officially test screened in England and France and the first reviews are coming out. Social networking comments show that in general fans the film, but the critics aren't as happy with the film as the fans are. No big surprise there.

Reviews seem to point out that "Prometheus" is a true "Alien" prequel, and doesn't just contain "Alien" DNA like Scott has been saying. The film is being touted as "intelligent sci-fi," but is not as tense as "Alien" and not as exciting as "Aliens."

"Prometheus" is set to hit US theaters on June 8th.

* WhatCulture: A thrilling sci-fi spectacle that should have series fans discussing it for years to come. (9/10)

* Empire: You'll leave with an empty feeling inside. (6/10)

* TotalFilm: "Prometheus" is very good. Easily the saga’s most spectacular entry.

* The Guardian: It lacks the central killer punch of "Alien." (6/10)

* The Telegraph: Majestic to look at and full of tentacular mayhem. (8/10)

* THR: More imaginative boldness would have taken it further.

* MovieCityNews: The best film of the summer so far.

* The Sun: Breaths life back into intelligent sci-fi.

* ScreenDaily: Intelligent and visceral film-making.

I saw it last night. I need to see it again to truly come up with an opinion as there is so much going on in my head with it that it demands a second viewing! Having said that, I know 100% that I was ultimately disappointed by it.

With Damon Lindelof (Lost) behind the script I should have expected shitloads of questions with no answers!
