The first critic reviews of Prometheus are in

May. 31, 2012by: Alex Maidy

With PROMETHEUS beginning to open internationally, the first critic reviews of the movie are coming in. So far, the consensus is on the more positive side but fall short of the masterpiece we all expect it to be. Granted, these are the critics and not the fans, so per usual take these with a grain of salt. You, my fellow Schmoes, are the ultimate critics.

"Ridley Scott has counter-evolved his 1979 classic Alien into something more grandiose, more elaborate – but less interesting. In place of scariness there is wonderment; in place of tension there is hugely ambitious design; in place of unforgettable shocks there are reminders of the original's unforgettable shocks. There are also some shrewd and witty touches, and one terrifically creepy performance from Michael Fassbender, who steals the film with the chilling, parasitic relentlessness of that first gut-bound alien." Peter Bradshaw (The Guardian)

"There's entirely too much to process in a first viewing of Ridley Scott's Prometheus -- some of it good, some of it great, almost all of it mental. This elaborate science fiction freakout takes gradual shape as a hot, writhing chop suey of ideas, not all of which necessarily belong in the same pot. Watching Scott slice and dice the ingredients -- and much of his cast, to boot -- is thrilling one minute, faintly deflating the next." Tim Robey (The Daily Telegraph)

"Ridley Scott's first sci-fi since Blade Runner remains earthbound in narrative terms, forever hinting at the existence of a higher intelligence without evincing much of its own. Yet a key difference between this film and its predecessor is one of volume. Incongruously backed by an orchestral surge of a score, the film conspicuously lacks the long, drawn-out silences and sense of menace in close quarters that made Alien so elegantly unnerving. Prometheus is one chatty vessel, populated by stock wise-guy types who spout tired one-liners when they're not either cynically debunking or earnestly defending belief in a superior power." Justin Chang (Variety)

"A visual feast of a 3D sci-fi movie... Technically, 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...[This is] a film that caters too much to imagined audience expectations, when a little more adventurous thought might have taken it to some excitingly unsuspected destinations." Todd McCarthy (The Hollywood Reporter)

"Prometheus should thrill, challenge and provoke audiences ready for [Scott's] signature brand of intelligent and visceral film-making. The effects are brilliantly woven into Scott's film, with cinematographer Dariusz Wolksi delivering some beautiful moments... A Ridley Scott film is always perfectly shot, intelligently edited and easy on the eye, and Prometheus is no different." Mark Adams (Screen Daily)

"Prometheus is, um, absolutely nuts. Not perfect by a stretch but there are ideas here you wouldn't expect a studio to touch with a 10ft pole." Robbie Collin (The Daily Telegraph)

"Prometheus is the type of big budget sci-fi that studios rarely make. Extremely well done. Don't read reviews. Just go see it." Steven Weintraub (Collider)

Rotten Tomatoes currently has the film at an 89% positive rating. AP Galaxy currently has it at 78% positive. MetaCritic has the film at a 63% ratiing.

I am not one to base my movies off of what the critics say. I base them off of my perception of the movie and those of my closest friends. So, all I can see here are good things about the movie. I am still incredibly psyched to see PROMETHEUS when it opens next week.

What about you? Do these critics alter your perception of the movie for better or worse (or not at all)?

Extra Tidbit: Those last two critic blurbs sold me yet again on this movie.

I just watched Prometheus: - My verdict? - In a word - 'crap'. Amateurish, not the stuff you'd expect from Ridley Scott. Special effects, all done before - nothing new. Soundtrack - was there one? Acting, - amateur. Storyline - soooooooo predictable, after 5 minutes, you just know whats going to happen. VERY disappointing.

Just saw it and I thought it was great!

No it's not as good as Alien, nor the best movie ever. But it's still a damn good time at the cinema if you ask me! The visuals were great, the actors were all fine(Fassbender fucking rules, like he always does!) and afterwards me and my friends had lots of stuff to discuss. Which lately doesn't happen that often anymore. If you like big sci fi movies I'd definitely recommend it! Just don't expect the second cooming of Christ, cause in the end you have to remember it is just a movie. But a

I don't get why you all WON'T compare this to Alien...

...seriously, what gives? It takes place on the same planet and sets up the set pieces seen in Alien. The sound effects are even the same!

Alien trailer:

Prometheus Trailer:
[link]

1) Exact same "sonar pings" heard (Alien at 0:49, Prometheus at 0:38)

2) Exact same "build the title of the movie by revealing one line at a time (Alien at the beginning 40 seconds, Prometheus through whole trailer)

3) Exact same spacejockey ship (Alien at 0:52, Prometheus at 0:55)

With all that, the movie company is going out of their way to FORCE it to associated with Alien. So I don't see why Ridley Scott or anyone who likes his movies would be so strongly trying to distance themselves from "Alien", unless they knew or feared that this wasn't as good.

Aliens stood alone as a good movie, and it was compared to Alien. Why can't Prometheus PROUDLY be the prequel to Alien?

Wrong. It doesn't take place on the same planet. But yeah, it shares a lot of features with Alien, too much actually not to be compared to it, as people compared the 4 Alien movies.

I didn't realize it wasn't on the same planet. I assumed the spacejockey ship that was shown as "crashed" in Alien is the same one shown as "crashing" in Prometheus.

Once you see the film. Then, you might be able to make a fair assessment on the film. You obviously don't know shit about Prometheus. There is a reason this film is rated R. I'm guessing you'll be bitching because there are no predators or xenos in the film.?

Wow, seriously, lots of childish hate there from you two. Unable to have a logical reply?

And "newb"? Seriously? Were you on set? Were you part of production? I'm talking about the way Prometheus was sold to the masses. And that sale was "look at me...I'm the prequel to Alien".

I'm not sure what part of my argument makes you think I give a shit about the AVP films either.

Both of you need to learn to tone down your anonymous-internet ranting and learn to just read, and

So basically all these reviewers went in expecting the EXACT same experience they had after dozens of viewings of 'Alien.' A movie that if released today would have been called 'visually impressive while providing some solid scares, but underdeveloped in its writing, boring in its mid-section, and anticlimactic in its ending.'

Is it me or does the ship Prometheus seem like a rip off of our much loved Serenity Ship! I will see this movie opening week. But you can tell exactly what is going to happen. Each crew member will be infected, and have their DNA changed to turn them into what we know as the Alien. And the 2 women are just Sigourney split in 2!

The Serenity ship looks WAAAYYY more like a ripoff of the big ship from Star Fox. They're so identical I confuse them every single time.

I read the first couple reviews, & stopped there. I don't want to know more than i already do about this film. Just from the couple reviews i read, there is too much comparison to Alien. Ive been waiting so long to be this excited for a Sci-Fi film. I'm not going into this film with thoughts of it being similar, or a prequel too Alien. It's its own Entity!

June 8th can't get here soon enough.

Theater prices have gotten so high that I see only maybe 1 or 2 movies a year in them. Prometheus will definitely be one of those 2.

Awesome.

Sounds awesome, I have no idea what to expect, all I know is Ridley Scott is a ballsy genius when it comes to scifi.

Also, I love it when a smart scifi movie comes out, especially one like this where they just debunk god. I see in the future, Fox news showing clips of protesters against this movie. I get good laugh out of it...

@French-dude: Actually, they've had that "other" name since before the 90s, and possibly since the time of production. I've ignored it because it's not peculiar. Also, as for your answer to my question, I find that rather disappointing. Not that you disappoint me, but the fact in itself disappoints me.

Other than the last two, the others are exactly the type of snob-ish reviews that turns me off. Comparing Prometheus to Aliens is like comparing Iron Man and Thor, same.. Universe but different movies!

Like I said on io9- It's like when people compare Aliens to Alien. You can't even do that and it's a direct sequel. One's action and the other- horror. So I'll take these critic reviews lightly, because they're all comparing it to Alien, which they've (Ridley, Lindelof) blatantly said it's not a prequel for.

This has happened so much this year and it's frustrating. We should all be cautious after TDKR is released since there seem to be a few pricks hanging around these boards.

Almost every one of those reviewers mention comparisons to Alien. Review a movie based on the movie alone, not what it's tied to.

The fact that they're still using words like "amibtious" "freakout" and "nuts" with regards to the film's design and subject suggests this may be divisive, but definitely worth seeing - can't grumble really.

Well the majority of those seem fairly positive so far, but no I do not listen to critics at all & judge a movie for myself. Most of the time with me is if it's a movie critics like I probably will not like & vice versa.

When it boils down to the movie sites like this one it's usually about 50/50, if I like a movie i will say i like it & praise it immensely on here. If it's a movie that some on here like but I particularly did not I won't say or criticize a person because to me to each

Ugh.

I hate movie critics. The only ones I sometimes take into account are on Joblo, hence my being here. I find critics to be either fucking retards or paid by studios for their praise. Either way their opinions are forfeit in my book. The same reason I hate rotten tomatoes with a passion. It's just a rating of all the idiotic professional reviewers out there. I'll stick with the Joblo crew, thank you.

The 3D is good, but it doesn't add anything particular. 15 minutes into the movie and you forget that you are watching 3D. But it's not shitty and therefore distracting, so I guess that's good.

Ridley Scott has a great eye for visuals and has built some of the biggest sets ever for this film, all of which look extra stunning in 3d.

It's great to hear some balanced views on this film, as after all that's a critic's job. Everyone really wants this to be the be-all end-all modern day sci-fi magnum opus, but I can't help but wonder if all the hype may backfire at least a little. The movie has been built up so much as Ridley Scott's triumphant return to sci fi, that if critics see some flaws in it they may be further tainted by this mass pre-perception of the movie.

Very good, but not great

Prometheus is nothing new or original, but it's good entertainment. The mood has nothing to do with the trailers, which tried to make it look like Alien. It's a good sci-fi movie with an adventure which goes beyond the Alien world. First of all, it takes place on LV-223 and NOT on LV-426. If you were hoping to see a xenomorph bursting out of a "space-jockey" sitting in his chair at the end, you're going to be disappointed. Technically, the movie is well crafted, of course. The problem stands in

If you were hoping to see a xenomorph bursting out of a "space-jockey" sitting in his chair at the end, you're going to be disappointed. Technically, the movie is well crafted, of course. The problem stands in the choices made in the script. There are plot holes and stuff happening too fast : my guess is there's going to be an extended cut, since I felt like I missed something like 20 minutes of movie.
There's not much work done on the characters, who are your typical crew members in a sci-fi movie, the most interesting being Fassbender's David, but his actions, or intentions are sometimes unclear. But it's very entertaining and the overall story is interesting enough. Don't go there expecting an Alien movie, that's all. And also, there is no real conclusion, so I hope there's gonna be another one.

You can definitely feel that they were going for a straight Alien prequel then changed their mind about the direction the story takes : it feels like they took 2 movies and mixed them together. The result is not bad at all, but imperfect.

***SPOILERS*** I agree with you for the most part. It did feel like it was cut down. I miss the long-drawn out scenes in Alien. Prometheus was chatty and the story moved at the speed of light story wise. I also miss the long conversations between the characters in Alien that really built each character. And I'm also unclear on David's purpose.

I try not to go into a film expecting a "masterpiece". As long as its good and doesn't suck, I'll be happy. Besides, seems like a film that will take multiple viewings to fully appreciate. IMAX, here I come!

I don't give a crap about the reviews, good or bad. I'm seeing this thing because it looks amazing and because Ridley knows how to handle science fiction more than any other genre.

Everyone will have a different perspective on this movie as everyone sees sci-fi differently from others. I'll decide for myself.

That being said the guys at ComingSoon and FirstShowing fucking loved it.

Just got back from it. I would agree with most of those reviews. It's not a masterpiece, but it's a DAMN GOOD sci-fi film.

I'm madly insane for this movie right now, and I'll let the judging for myself when I see it. I'm liking what I'm reading from these reviews, but will cut short... for spoiler sake.
