Prometheus can still be pretty good, but it could have been much more than great visuals and ridiculous suspense. It ends questionable. The characters are not that appealing, except David. It's definitely not as superior as Ridley Scott's classic Alien movie. Scott sure did a well job directing this but he's muddled with this script and this incomplete story. But like I said, it's worth watching for the visuals and the interesting concept, but in the end, it will make you wait for the possible sequels. It's still fascinating and recommendable.

So bad it hurts. You know these movies where you cannot help yourself and shout at the screen when you see the movie's characters, whom are supposedly trained into being careful, do stupid things. Or take ridiculous decisions? That's it. All the time. So much frustration. Situation.
You are on a deserted world never explored yet, you are one of the best biologist/scientist. You see a strange and threatening organism before you, you;
a) try & pet him like a little doggie
b) get back, analyze the situation and contain the bloody monster
They choose a). ALWAYS. If there is something stupid to do, they will do it. It doesn't feel like they are good at what they do. It feels like a regular teen slasher movie. It feels like we should add "Prometheus" to the "Alien universe movies which did NOT happen", right next to Alien 4.
