    Adding that light on certain aspects of the film further confirms my opinion that Prometheus is probably a potential great movie that simply suffered from too much plot condensing and copious amounts of editing. There was simply too much story here for a typical 2-houre release.
    How else do you plan to squeeze a twelve hour movie into two hours?
    The result is plot holes, convenience, huge question marks and the appearance of lazy film-making.
    There very likely is a much better director's cut of this film awaiting release.
    Though even a 3.5 hour cut probably won't do it justice.
    Prometheus would have been better served as a HBO/BBC type series allowing the director to fully expand on all these details. 3 seasons > 3 movies..

    I saw it last night and left the theatre torn. I admire what they did but it was just too grandiose of an undertaking for the screenwriters. I just pray that there is a 5 hour cut out there or something.

    The Director's cut will probably be on the blu ray.

    The sequels will explain it all.

    I love the philosophy behind the film. Sci-fi mixed with theology is excellent

    They tried to squeeze too much in 2 hours, they should have expanded on the discovery and build up to actually landing and finding the planet. Could have done ALOT more, it was pretty sporadic to me.

    See... I agree with this. The movie felt forced and that's probably why I didn't like it as much as I expected.

    I wanted it to keep going towards the end - not because I was overly enjoying it, but because I felt it ended abruptly.

    Obviously there will be other movies (assuming Ridley Scott is still living), and if I still have access to free movies, I'll see it.

    Think I will hold off on watching it and wait and see if they release a directors cut on dvd.

    Just saw this. It sucked. Great space/planet visuals with a lived in feel which is what Ridley Scott does best.


    If you've seen and know it sucks but just want to recap how it sucked in your head but in a humorous manner, watch:
