Brief review: Excellent.
Spectacular cinematography, script, music and the directing by Ridley Scott… Bravo.
Tip: Make sure you have, at one point or another in your life, seen one of the Alien movies prior to watching this one. Be it the first 1979 by the same director as Prometheus (Scott) or the awesome sequel (Aliens) by James Cameron (most notable for Titanic and Avatar). Seriously, you will enjoy Prometheus with a backstory from the Alien franchise in your head, especially at the end when you have a eureka moment and say: “Oh, so that’s where it started!”
