It does seem like I am being more negative than positive, but "Prometheus" isn't guilty of any cinematic crime that most blockbusters haven't already committed. Sure, the characters and their actions are lifted from the big book of cliches. Sure, it's not as intelligent as it wants to be. But it does at least have substance and story wise, it accomplishes far more than most of its ilk. I only seem harsher because it nearly did achieve greatness, making its failures more frustrating.
