Jim Schembri, 3AW
Ridley Scott's long-awaited prequel-of-sorts to his game-changing 1979 classic sci-fi terror ride Alien is not only conceptually lame and badly made, it's actually worse than Alien Resurrection.– Full review
David Denby, New Yorker
The movie may be a scare show that leaves many questions unanswered, but Scott's craft earns an exhausted kind of respect.– Full review
Ed Gibbs, The Sunday Age
For all its grand designs and sweeping vistas, Prometheus could simply do with a bit more story.– Full review
Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com
Brilliant. Epic. Haunting. Grotesque. Great.– Full review
David Edelstein, New York Magazine
Prometheus tells a much bigger story and does it well, but it's missing what matters most. It's inorganic.– Full review
Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
There's definite mastery here, but it's hardly a masterpiece.– Full review
