<p>“‘Prometheus’ elicits ‘Alien’ memories for viewers who have them, but works on its own, too, as a model of a contemporary (and, as is the contempo mode, long-winded) sci-fi horror pic.” – Lisa Schwarzbaum,  <a href=토토사이트 Entertainment Weekly.

“Strikingly beautiful, expertly paced, vividly detailed and scary as hell, it holds you in its grip for its entirety and doesn’t let go. You’ll squeal, you’ll squirm – at one point, I was curled up in a little ball in my seat in a packed screening room – and you’ll probably continue feeling a lingering sense of anxiety afterward. That’s how effective it is in creating and sustaining an intensely suspenseful mood.” – Christy Lemire, Associated Press.

“The virtuosity on display makes the weakness of the story – the screenplay is by Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof – all the more frustrating. I’ll avoid spoilers here, but “Prometheus” kind of spoils itself with twists and reversals that pull the movie away from its lofty, mind-blowing potential. Geeks and dreamers will hold onto scraps of splendor and wish for more.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times.

“‘Prometheus’ damn near lives up to the unsustainable hype, at least at the level of cinematography, production design, special effects and pure wow factor.” – Andrew O’Hehir, Salon.com.

“Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus’ is a magnificent science-fiction film, all the more intriguing because it raises questions about the origin of human life and doesn’t have the answers. It’s in the classic tradition of golden age sci-fi, echoing Scott’s ‘Alien’ (1979), but creating a world of its own. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.

“This project started life as an intended prequel to ‘Alien’ but morphed into something else. Unfortunately, the closer it comes to a climax, the more you feel the elements being lined up to set the stage for a sequel to this film, most of all in a coda that feels like a craven teaser trailer for the next installment.” – Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter.
