    Hello to all ALIENS fans, This is a must-watch.

    If you are an ALIENS fan, this is a must-watched epic movie. For it is not truly a sequel or prequel movie to the ALIENS franchise, it does have a crossover type story pertaining to the origins of the ALIENS species. There will definitely be a sequel so you must watch this movie to prepare for the eventual sequel to come out in the future.

    Ridley Scott at the top of his game. Great cast and good suspense that surrounds them.

    Least Favorite Alien but still a worthy upgrade..

    Although I wasn't completely sold on this delusional preclusion... since film had its weak directorial and acting moments... (especially after waiting so long on the 5th follow up) it does have decent moments... visually stunning and its great to see the ship from "planet of the vampires" once again... along with the original awesome Alien interiors,,, But don't think I'll never get over dumb scene where one of the supposed scientists (a severely stupid one at least) puts his face up to an unusually sinister looking large wormlike creature talking to it like a fuzzy wuzzy plush toy for idiots... just before it bites his soon to be unmissed face off... I would hate to be the goofy actor playing the part of a zookeeper at a petting zoo in a not so great alien sequel in a poorly written and directed death scene... anyway.. I've read that Ridley Scott wanted to expand the alien universe to be a multi alien inclusive Utopia... sure... I'm all for it... but maybe he's thinking Star wars with face huggers..I'm just sayin' :-) just hope #7 takes us somewhere else in an alternate more intelligent and meticulously thought out dark universe... because there's no goin' back now.. Sigourney Weaver Kenobi, you could be our only hope....

    Great movie, very well done. Too bad it wasn’t expanded on, instead of the weak tie-in of Alein:Covenant directly to the original Alien film.

    Probably the best 3D Bluray to date

    The case itself is great and the discs are easy to remove and put back. Some cases are terrible with that. The 3D looks amazing and is probably the best looking movie so far in 3D. Some people might say Avatar, but considering this is all shot with real people and real sets, it gets more points in my opinion. For fans of the Alien series, this will either spark your interest and give you hopes for a new series based on Prometheus, or you will be frustrated out of your mind by the plot holes. You end up having more questions when it's over than you had before you started the movie. I still enjoyed it, but it's one of those situations where you know they can't piece it all together so it makes sense, so it's hard to be excited for the sequel, but all in all it was a good time. Also, I still haven't even finished all the special features because there are a few hours at least. I saw most of it though and it's great stuff. Very interesting and lots of behinds the scenes footage.

    Another amazing movie from director Ridley Scott. It’s a terrific look at the visceral opportunity a movie in space can have in showing the vast expanse known to us as the stars, and has terrific casting that creates characters you really feel attachment to by the end, including Michael Fassbender’s amazing performance as David. The copy you get is no less great, with the 4K version giving it even better colors and graphics that will dazzle the eyes. A must buy for any Alien or sci-fi fan

    so much promis ruined by sloppy writing

    The Good: -There have been various opinions about the special effects. Personally, I thought the visuals and soundtrack were awesome. They definitely made me favorably disposed towards this film. -Michael Fassbender is spellbinding. The Bad: The main problem with the entire film is that nobody (other than Michael Fassbender) has any plausible motivation for the majority of their behavior. As a result the entire movie is basically just an exercise in convenience, much like your modern B-movie horror flick. **** COMPLETE SPOILER **** Weyland is old and dying. A couple scientists convince him our progenitors are located in a specific solar system based on some old cave paintings found in separate locations. Weyland immediately spends a few trillion on a space ship and fills it full of the most absurd band of miscreants he can find, plus one awesome android, plus himself (shhhh it's an unnecessary secret). His plan?... become immortal somehow. It's just completely absurd. Why is he secretly on the ship, instead of just... entirely visibly on the ship? It's HIS ship. Why does he think wandering up to these aliens and asking them a few questions is a good route to immortality in the first place? Honestly his role/quest is entirely unnecessary and should have either been legitimized with SOME sort of evidence, reasoning, or belief structure, or thrown out. When his quest inevitably and laughably fails even his final quote... is stupid. We don't care enough about his mission to care about its failure. The four scientists are far more maddening and will be discussed from least maddening to "makes me want to curl up into a ball and sob uncontrollably" can-of-walnuts crazy town. We start with the two scientists who discover the... constellation (hold on a minute, why were the aliens pointing out their biological-weapon-factory-planet to a bunch of Neanderthals?? A 20,000 year delayed trap? SENSELESS). Noomi has "faith" which is discussed and never legitimized outside of some sad, pithy dreams, but she has very little sense. She does, however, occasionally react to situations properly. This occasional legitimate action makes her not completely terrible. Noomi's boyfriend scientist does not react to any situation properly. First, he takes of his helmet because... Why not? He gets depressed by finding dead aliens instead of living ones. He also manages to be a gigantic fool to the most dangerous character on the ship (Michael Fassbender drips with menace throughout the entire movie). Afterwards he sees proof that he is infected with some crazy alien eye worms and... ignores it. Ingenious! Needless to say when he is torched with a flamethrower nobody cares. Choosing who is worst between the geologist and biologist is kind of like choosing the least appetizing between two liver flukes. You can't win. The geologist gets lost in a cave which he MAPPED with his OWN devices. Furthermore being that he is... I don't know... a GEOLOGIST, why can't he find his way out of a cave? Meanwhile the biologist, in possibly the most daringly risky action in all of fictional biology, sticks his hand basically INSIDE the mouth of an alien death snake after RUNNING from a "possible life form reading" in the previous scene. What life form was he imagining previously if he's willing to immediately leap into the mouth of a terrifying, albino snake-beast? They both die horribly and nobody cares. I honestly laughed derisively. This is all a long winded way of saying a bunch of stuff happens and nobody cares, seemingly not even the characters in the movie. The science doesn't make any sense, of course, but I cared a lot less about that than the terrifying senselessness of the story and characters. Once the movie chunkily transitions into its horror phase there is a feeling of stupid inevitability to every death as the characters one by one run (sometimes quite literally) directly towards their doom. At the end of the movie (kindly telegraphed by the previews to the movie... thanks marketing!) all I could feel was a general malaise. This feeling combined with the knowledge that this script could have been fixed for about .01% of the money pumped into special effects left me decidedly nonplussed. This movie could have been one of the best Sci Fi epics of all time; instead it's a laughable farce. Worth watching once just for Michael Fassbender and the aforementioned effects, or lots of times if you liked Transformers...

    One of the best scifi films of the past decade. Highly reccomend this movie to anyone who loves science fiction, or is a fan of the alien franchise. I've had no issue with the physical blu-ray and love that it comes with a digital code as well so you can watch on the go.

    Prometheus Magnificent

    Magnificent, love it. I have been following Alien from the beginning when it first came out, in the late 70’s. The new audience, that watching Alien now, I’m jealous, because one can watch the entire epics of this series, on a movie binge, without waiting for the next one to come out, in two or three years. I think the Aliens movie were classic, I have all of them in my Sci Fi collections. Now that I’ve seen them all, Prometheus, Prometheus Covenant, should be watch first, then the first Alien, Aliens, so fourth. For those who haven’t seen Alien, watch Alien, Aliens first, one would get into the movie a lot faster. It will make you wonder were the Hell did these things come from.

    The picture quality is fine, it's not much better than the regular blu-ray, and there are a lot of features missing from this release, but it is still pretty decent.

    This was my first time watching this movie and I thought I was just okay, maybe some of the plot holes made me knock it down a bit but overall enjoyable movie. As for the 4K experience, this movie looks incredible so much clarity the HDR is great. Saw some still comparisons on YouTube and this is definitely a upgrade over the Blu-ray especially since a lot of this movie is dark scenes. This would be a great addition to your 4K collection.

    If you haven't seen the film yet, you will still undoubtedly be aware of the polarized reception it received. Some love it, some hate it. Instead of giving you another opinion on why it's the best/worst film ever, let me tell you what to expect. PROMETHEUS is not a horror film. Certainly it has structural similarities to ALIEN, and there is one scene that I would consider very "stressful." But overall, the film is what I would classify as a "concept drama." That is, a drama that doesn't focus on characters, but rather on concept. Don't let any of the tense trailers fool you, this movie was meant as a discussion piece, not an adrenaline rush. You can decide whether it succeeds or fails when you watch it yourself
