    • 20th Century Fox deliver the UK Ultra HD Blu-ray release of Prometheus in much the same shape as its sequel, Alien: Convenant, and with the same positives and technical negatives. It's hard not to be disappointed...

    • With the back cover promising 'immersive audio' it's curious that - unlike the Ultra HD Blu-ray release of Alien: Covenant - the Ultra HD Blu-ray release of Prometheus actually doesn't have a Dolby Atmos...

    • As with Alien: Covenant, Prometheus is another lazy Ultra HD Blu-ray release on the extras front - perhaps even more so - as, not only do we get none of the extras (beyond those audio-derived) ported over...

    • Hobbled by a hard-to-explain script and by nobody reining in Ridley Scott, the flawed Prometheus is strangely more engaging after the mess that was Alien: Covenant. Expectations are everything, and when...

    • Scott made a sequel worse than Prometheus, thus inadvertently making it a better film Released the same day as it's sequel, Prometheus earns a marginally better video presentation and an excellent audio...

    • Prometheus is presented on 4K UHD courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment with a 2160p transfer in 2.40:1. Digitally captured and finished at a 2K DI, Prometheus exhibits some of the same uptick...

    • The 4K UHD disc ports over the two commentary tracks Casey describes in his Prometheus 3D Blu-ray review. The Blu-ray included in this package is the 2D disc, and so all of the supplements listed by Casey...

    • Prometheus and Alien: Covenant can be such a mind boggling duo that it may not make much difference what order you choose to watch them in. Revisiting Prometheus after having watched the ostensible "explanations"...

    • Prometheus wanders about Ultra HD with an excellent and often beautiful H.265 encode that leaves the HD version stranded on a desolate planet. Immediately, in the opening shots of an alien drinking the...

    • For this 4K presentation of Scott's prequel, 20th Century Fox has opted to recycle the same, reference-quality DTS-HD soundtrack enjoyed on the 2012 Blu-ray, and Luke did a great job detailing what makes...

    • While I enjoy the first two Alien movies, I'm no fanatic of the series. My opinion of Prometheus is based solely on Prometheus. If you still have not yet seen Prometheus, rest assured knowing that my review...

    • Watching [Prometheus] itself is a journey that I wish I could take again for the first time. Upon reflection and analysis, it only gets better with each viewing. Sure, there are those who loathe Prometheus...
