Haven't seen it yet.
But I read this comment:

the film itself, it's totally unenjoyable rubbish. The director must be a first year film student who just happens to be the name sake of the famous one.

:ha: someone that actually watched it could say if it's that weak ?

It was meh. Spectacular visuals (saw it in IMAX), but the story was meh and all the characters were idiots. No, really. Idiots. Except the captain. The captain was cool.


Also, this.

i wouldnt recommend it if your a huge alien fan like me. i watched it and didnt think it was something worth like to mention as part of the alien universe. although it did give some answers as to where xenomorphs come from and all, but still raises more questions

The Movies in Fifteen Minutes writeup is a must read, if you've seen the movie:

Warning, spoilers. Duh.

TOUCH TOUCH TOUCH TOUCH TOUCH TOUCH.Iit wasnt as bad as I thought it was going to be , but it felt like it was lacking.
As said above, the characters where idiots and I dont think anyone would be that stupid in a situation like that... I mean, obviously its not real life and its acting but just... The... fuuuuu... I dont even. I just... no.

The wife and I went to see this a few days ago. I had a blast. She...tolerated it (which is saying a lot since she abhors sci-fi). I went into it having read all of the common complaints beforehand (scientists are stupid, people touch everything, more questions than answers...) and I have to say...people are nitpicky. I frakking hate Dane Cook, but he had a joke about watching Superman Returns and at the point where the bullet bounces off the Supe's eyeball in the beginning some dude in the theater says, "Yeahh...righhht..." At which point in a story are you supposed to suspend your disbelief? Well, when it comes to fiction, when you walk through the door of the theater, open the book for the first time, or place the game disc in the drive... I personally can't wait for a sequel.

Which part of Prometheus was unbelievable?
The fact that most of the characters act like complete idiots. Without it being lampshaded or handwaved or anything that would make it easier to accept that all those characters should be acting like, well, idiots. "Prolonged cryostasis may impede cognitive functions." "The atmosphere is rich in retardium, a rare element that makes everyone... not... smart... brain." Nothing.

At no point was it ever stated that these people were even close the best in their respective fields, nor was it implied that they would act professionally. They were hired by a rich old man to go out there and touch things and push buttons. And really, David was the only one f*cking with everything and we have to assume he was "programmed" to do so...being that he's a machine and all...

Could you name a sci-fi movie that got it right according to what's believable? Because I guarantee you that holes could be poked in that one and that people do things that you probably wouldn't do.

Or not suicidally. On the other hand, it was never stated that they were the absolute worst in their field either, so it still came as a surprise when it turned out every one of them was a suicidal unproffessional incompetent idiot.

It's not about whether you can poke holes or not, it's about how easy it is to spot them, and how hard it is to ignore them.

Who exactly did something suicidal? Which of the crew members was incompetent? I'm wondering if we watched the same movie or if maybe you're just regurgitating something you read in the internets...

Suicidal? Trying to cuddle a hissing alien cobra. Incompetent? Getting lost in a completely mapped area and (presumably) with guidance from the ship. Handling the most important find in history like a grade schooler would handle a dead frog (and apparently hazmat suits and glove boxes don't exist in that universe, but that's a different story). For example. And no, I'm not regurgitating what I read on teh interwebs to sound cool and edgy, I watched the movie, and spent large parts of it fighting the urge to shout at the screen because people were acting like the busty bimbo in a teen slasher film.

He was programmed/instructed to experiment on live subjects to find out what the alien jell-o did.
