Prometheus was fantastic. It had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. All of the characters were interesting and believable and the story was perfectly paced. It had a great balance between suspense and thrills over a backdrop of a beautiful environment and breathtaking soundtrack. It has just the right amount of references to Alien without overloading the audience or leaving those who haven’t seen the Alien series guessing what everyone else is excited about. Overall, it is certainly a contender for my favorite movie of this year alongside The Avengers. I give it 9/10.
