It was hard to get interested in the concept of Prometheus seeing as everyone in modern moviemaking has been workshopping Chariots of the Gods since it debuted, and it was even more hard seeing as the faith in the Alien franchise has been permanently extinguished since 1997.
Ridley Scott himself returned to make Prometheus to reignite the spark that Alien gave us way back in 1979. And the result is...a warm flame that could be easily blown out by a sneeze.
Prometheus isnt bad, it's good to watch and looks great and this movie should restore credibility to Scott's technical direction and cinematography at the very least. The acting is good and the cast is really great, but the whole thing doesnt leap out at you or make you jump like Alien did all those years ago.
Prometheus isnt groundbreaking and it won't change your life and the future (and inevitable sequels) may bring more to the table after a whole bunch of stuff happened at the end. Prometheus is a fairly good watch and you'll stay awake the whole time, just don't clutch that pillow in fear too much.
