Legendary director Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner) returns to his sci-fi origins in this epic adventure bursting with spectacular action and mind-blowing visual effects. A team of scientists and explorers travels to the darkest corners of the universe searching for the origins of human life. Instead they find a dark, twisted world that hides a terrifying threat capable of destroying them...and all mankind!
You want an alien world created anew, with wonders and horrors lurking in its furrows? You go to Ridley Scott, of course, spectacle maker and pictorialist par excellence. So Prometheus is bound to be eye filling, with fully wrought planetary vistas and occasionally jaw-dropping visual coups. And did we use the word alien back there? Yes, folks, Prometheus is a prequel, in a sideways sort of fashion, to Scott's 1979 Alien original--or at least it's a long-distant stage setter for that story. This one begins with a space mission that could reveal the extraterrestrial roots of Earth, although what's buried out on the planet turns out to be much more complicated than expected. In the midst of suspenseful episodes (and a few contrived plot turns), Prometheus reaches for Big Answers to Big Questions, in a grand old sci-fi tradition. This lends the movie a hint of metaphysical energy, even if Scott's reach extends well, well beyond his grasp. The hokier moments are carried off with brio by Michael Fassbender (the robot on board), Charlize Theron, and Idris Elba, and then you've got Noomi Rapace entering the badass hall of fame for a long, oh-no-they-didn't sequence involving radical surgery, which might just induce the vapors in a few viewers. Even if Prometheus has its holes, the sheer size of the thing is exciting to be around. Because this movie is gigantic. --Robert Horton.
A team of scientists journey through the universe on the spaceship "Prometheus" on a voyage to investigate Alien life forms. The team of scientists becomes stranded on an Alien world, and as they struggle to survive it becomes clear that the horrors they experience are not just a threat to themselves, but to all of mankind. - WellardRockard
A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
Prometheus is both gruesome and awesome, not for those who are looking for lighthearted fun but for those who wonder how to and how not to. Read morePublished 12 hours ago by zee
If you are willing to turn off your brain before watching, then you may find Prometheus no worse than your average movie. It provides a few hours of mindless entertainment. Read morePublished 18 hours ago by rbrogan3
I watched this movie for the first time tonight. I came into it knowing nothing about it. It's related to the movie Alien (which I saw when it first came out in 1979 but didn't... Read morePublished 2 days ago by book lover

I had the same issue. What you have to do is double click to open the DVD on your desktop then click open the icon (an orange arrow I think). You put the code in there, it copies it, then you can launch iTunes and it will work perfectly. I think its how it gets activated, so just remember that... Read More

|A whole batch of defective blu-ray discs of Prometheus||
I have the problems with the 4-disk, Blu-ray set (specifically, disk 2 with Ridley's commentary). First the sound becomes intermittent, then the image jumps about (like a stroboscopic image). I can temporarily fix it by pausing for a couple secs and then hitting "play" again. I have to... Read More

having viewed prometheus TWICE yesterday ( 30-09-12 )on BLU RAY, i can safely say that the video ( 4.5 )/ audio ( 5 ) is great, with only a few instances of banding and some soft darker scenes.
it is a good buy, as the movie is also a good prequel to a prequel ( the up-coming part 2 ).
a much... Read More
