There are plot holes sure, but  it was visually gorgeous and had superb effects. The design of it was incredible.

Personally, I loved it. It was better than Aliens.

How many days did it take man to create God?

I wouldn't go that far, but it's definitely one of the best films in the "franchise" (I'm counting the AvP films here as well, seeing as how they're about as much spinoffs as this one).

glad to see someone else not hating on it, though.

JACOB, but in some sense it WAS better than 'Alien'.
Like, Alien in 2012 HD 3D.

I am planning to watch it again soon!

I think Prometheus is great, but in NO POSSIBLE WAY is it better than Alien (or Aliens, for that matter).

Alien is THE greatest movie that combines sci-fi with horror.

Watched Prometheus last night

Sure, for one there are plot holes, and its not a plus either that the characters are just "thrown away" in this film. I mean, besides those pseudo-meaningful "you can make the difference, we can save earth" dialogues all the time we don't really find out anything about them. But the visual effects and a great Michael Fassbender make up for it.

Samesies; did not enjoy this movie.

I liked how despite the racial diversity of the crew, they all had anglo names: Ford, Shaw, Holloway, Fifield etc. I guess the melting pot just gets that much bigger in the future (maybe a deleted scene?)

Most disappointing film of the year. I can even look past all the plotholes. My biggest problem was this film just wasn't scary. At all. The trailer promised something that was going to be horrifying, and it just wasn't.

A guy in an Alien costume will ALWAYS be scarier than a CG alien.

guy getting scared of skeleton/not of living alien snake, scientist all depressed after 6 hours are very entertaining reflections. that said, i really hope there will be a sequel to this movie, enjoyed it quite a bit

Very disappointing movie. The trailer hyped it to be more than it actually was. Wasn't scary or compelling. Plus it was riddled with plot holes and some pretty cheesy/shitty writing. I did like the visuals and Fassbender was excellent, but that's about it.
