Penny Arcade’s Prometheus spoiler.

I understand the need to avoid spoilers, obviously – but if this one is true… yeah.  That had to be addressed.

I’m getting the general impression that opinion over Prometheus is going to end up being, um, polarized. Not necessarily balanced, but polarized.


  • Rob Crawford says:

    Just don’t read Larry Correia’s review. He pretty much lays out the plot in all its stupidity, and admits what he does is “spoilerriffic”. But, long before the spoilers:
    “The problem with Prometheus being a Thinking movie is that the more you think about it, the less it makes sense.”

  • Dan Irving says:

    Kevin Smith has a Hulu channel called ‘Spoilers with Kevin Smith’ (natch) and the second episode reviews Prometheus. They go over that particular trope like PA.

    I also like the review done by the boys at spill.com (plus I love the animation on the video reviews …)

  • DaveP. says:

    Ghost of a Flea has a couple of links to some very thoughtful Promethius reviews, one of which goes through the effort of dissecting the pseudoreligous symbolism.

  • Luke says:

    I was also going to recommend Correia’s review. It’s great.

  • xander says:

    I enjoyed Prometheus, all but the end bit. I’m so glad I can just sit and enjoy a movie without being able to analyze it the whole time.

  • Geoff Shotts says:

    My problem with Prometheus is that it felt like half a movie. The “ending” should have been the midpoint of Act II. then Act III could be…


    …the heroine trying to find out why the Engineers want to kill humanity, while trying not to be killed herself.
