Is sometimes called a Titan, though in reality he did not belong to the Titans, but was only a son of the Titan Iapetus, by Clymene, so that he was a brother of Atlas, Menoetius, and Epimetheus His name signifies "forethought," as that of his brother Epimetheus denotes "afterthought." Others call Prometheus a son of Themis, or of Uranus and Clymene, or of the Titan Eurymedon and Hera. By Pandora, Hesione, or Axiothea, he is said to have been the father of Deucalion, by Pyrrha or Clymene he begot Hellen, and by Celaeno he was the father of Lycus and Chimaereus, while Herodotus calls his wife Asia.
The following is an outline of the legends related of him by the ancients. Once in the reign of Zeus, when gods and men were disputing with one another at Mecone, Prometheus, with a view to deceive Zeus and rival him in prudence, cut up a bull and divided it into two parts : he wrapped up the best parts and the intestines in the skin, and at the top he placed the stomach, which is one of the worst parts, while the second heap consisted of the bones covered with fat.

It takes a bit to get used to (storywise), but after being out for all these years, there is plenty online to fully explain the plot and backstory.
I'm a fan of the Alien series (even Resurrection...but not #3), so when 1st seeing this movie, everything was a shock (as this is a prequel).
It wasnt expected.
However, the more I watch the film, the movie I appreciate it. Its a treat to the eye (especially in HD).
Recommended for any Sci-Fi fan.

Watch the story and enjoy, aliens aren't in the machinery, but the horror is there....when you realize this sets the foundation for what's to come.
If you've never seen this...ignore the negative reviews. Watch it.
this was a great sci-fi movie. the characters were a little over the top, but the storyline was pretty interesting. if you did not read anything about this movie or its contents or see the "alien" movies, you would wonder at the end. but, who hasn't seen the alien movies? the cast was good, the plot was interesting, and the locations were spectacular. but the so called aliens were just ugly. noomi rapace is a fabulous actress...
The movie is beautiful to watch. From the opening scenes of the Engineer by the waterfall, to the scenes on LV-223 within both the Prometheus and the Engineer's spaceship. There were scenes tying into the Aliens Universe if you looked hard enough, and enough new territory to make this something new in that Universe.
I thought the acting for the most part was very well done. Michael Fassbender as David, the cyborg, was excellent, especially his scenes with Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron) and Dr. Shaw (Noomi Rapace). Both those ladies did a fantastic job, as did Idris Elba as the Prometheus's Captain. Logan Marshall-Green's performance as Dr. Holloway was a bit stiff, however Guy Pearce had a complete old-man makeover as Peter Weyland, the CEO of Weyland Corp. It took me 5 minutes of viewing before I realized that it was even Guy Pearce. I should have listened more to the voice.
Definitely some of the more frustrating things of the movie was the way the crew reacted when they encounter the Engineer ship,and some of the scenes within. As others have recounted: the taking off of the helmets, the two crew getting "lost" within the spaceship, not being ultra-careful with many ominous canisters lined up in the "Head" room, ect...
The Extra's featured on the Blu-Ray & Digital Copy:
* Deleted & Alternate Scenes - A couple were interesting, and a couple were not. Not many for a long film. I did like the scene where at the beginning where they decided to do 1 Engineer rather than many.
* Peter Weyland Files - 4 short files on Weyland's computer. 1 is of a speech made by Weyland in 2023, however I liked the one of an Infomercial for David the Cyborg.
* Prometheus Mobile App so you can interact with your smartphone or tablet when the movie is on.
* Commentary by writer Jon Spaihts and writer/ex producer Damon Lindelof.
* Commentary by director/producer Ridley Scott.
I did really enjoy this movie, even with some of the more frustrating behaviors of the crew, and many questions being unanswered. I have heard this is part 1 of a trilogy, so hopefully our questions will be answered in the future.

One negative or lack is a "strong" male protagonist but, this is nitpicking.Read more
