It seems that Prometheus has been screened for French critics, and they are now posting their reviews online.
Here are a few of them:
It’s fair to say the reviews are mixed, but here are a few quotes from the above links, courtesy of Google Translate:
“Prometheus is not a sequel, a reboot, or a rehash of Alien , there is another film, the promise of an exciting new saga.”
“It’s really a shame to waste so much money ($ 150 million budget anyway) and talent (the entire cast has been misused and the director can do much better”
“Prometheus is a must-see for fans of the Alien and a very good movie for lovers of sci-fi”
“3D is very friendly and the special effects are without the slightest mistake”
“In terms of design of vessels, objects, costumes, graphic design, creativity of the film is extraordinary. I can not imagine the amount of work necessary to achieve such a result. Side scenery, whether natural or studios, all competition to transport you into another world. Photography is also enhanced by a beautiful 3D, so beautiful, so logical, so enveloping that personally I totally forgot that the movie was in 3D (that’s a compliment in my mouth).”
Thanks again to seeasea for the links!
We hope to have our review online on Thursday.
