Prometheus is a prequel of sorts to the Alien franchise. It's a lot more sci-fi than horror. It's slow and methodical. It takes its time to build a mystery that leads to some answers. Not all answers, but enough to tie up this plot (strong feeling that there will be a sequel to the prequel that isn't Aliens).
The movie's exposition was a bit much at times. The action and regular dialogue could be unclear at times, which would then be followed by a long winded explanation of things that just happened. I expected it to be a bit smarter and clear in its story, but it's still worth seeing, especially if you're a science fiction fan or Alien fan.
