This was my number one most anticipated movie of the summer. I'm a big fan of the Alien franchise and was very excited to get a look at the "sorta" prequel. You'll only see a hint of the original Alien here and there so it's not necessary to be familiar with the franchise. This was a great movie with great actors. Of course, Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron were absolutely perfect. I'll admit I didn't totally understand how they pieced the story together, but in the end they tied it up with a nice little Alien bow for me and made it all better. I'll give Prometheus a pair of stilettos because it looked cool and Michael Fassbender is AWESOME!
