This one surprised me- stunningly beautiful with a mysticism and thoughtfulness that I found intriguing, rather than overbearing.
From the opening (and arguably the best) scene, Prometheus lays its cards on the table- this is a full-on, vast, giant-blue-alien sci-fi movie. Perhaps best digested as separate to the Alien franchise, this film throws up a lot of big ideas, and while it does not answer all of them, the mystery enthralled me. This, with Fassbender's outstanding portrayal of David, was enough to keep me fully invested in the movie, while characters like Shaw fell by the wayside.
If you are not into the opening scene, you might want to skip this one.
