Brief Synopsis:
Prometheus SE cuts out a lot of the unnecessary humor, dialog and scene's, building stronger, smarter characters. Removing many plot holes with the story and just general things that have issues. Such as Fifield getting lost in the structure, running in a straight line away from a rolling space craft. Deleted scene's or certain shots from the deleted footage was re-integrated back into the movie by either using several shots to change certain scene's or by adding a whole new scene to the film. All new material was color corrected, scored, sfx added and leveled to appropriate audio levels.
Intention:
To create a better more intelligent version of the movie, with stronger characters, less humor, less plot holes, and more in the heart of Alien.
Additional Notes:
Also available in full Blu-Ray 3D

I have to say despite all the negative reviews, I was blown away by the original version of prometheus, maybe it was the sense of scale on the big screen or having low expectations. On a second viewing at home after watching the many trailers and deleted / alternate scenes I began to realise the theatrical release is actually a chopped up mess made without a clear direction.

Agent 9 has clearly put a lot of hard work into making this film as close to what's think was the original intention as possible and after watching this edit I felt as blown away as I did after my first ever viewing.

This will replace my bluray version. Which now feels like an inferior edit.

This review is not aimed to offend, just to give my honest opinion. Agent 9's fanedit is the highest rated Prometheus edit so my expectations were high, even higher after watching the very long but otherwise excellent Giftbearer fan edit. The amount of work put into this edit is evident, I commend the creator for their efforts, however...

My enjoyment was completely ruined by the misuse of tracks to influence the viewer's emotion or convey character intentions in some scenes, incorrect audio levels during scenes with dialog, looping snippets of tracks from tracks intended for other scenes, bizarre audio effects added/manipulated to the existing score and lastly shoehorned tracks from the other Alien movies that do not fit the tone of the film nor the film's score that was left intact. It's a great idea, but it was poorly executed, key scenes were spoiled. Scenes intended to unravel before the audience are given away by new score elements that remove the suspense and reveal the plot surprises, these scenes should have been left untouched.These problems occur throughout the movie from title screen all the way till the end credits roll.

It's very unfortunate considering how much effort went to this. It would have benifited from critical review prior it's fanedit.org official release. The audio aspect of this project would have benefited from the collaboration of someone with strong audio editing experience.

Other than the above I have no complaints with the visual editing, there are certain scenes I would have prefered to see but I won't criticize the creator's choice considering what they had to work with and their choice how to tell the story. The movie's narrative is much more cohesive, there are lots of small edits that make a lot of difference.

I liked Agents 9's take on Prometheus. The TED Talk intro is always a welcome addition to any Prometheus Edit. The faster paced story line, the removal of unneeded, unnecessary and unwanted secondary character development is a relief.

I have a difficult time in coming up with anything negative to say about this Edit. My biggest complaint as with other edits of Prometheus really isn't the Fan Editors fault. I really really hate that so many characters are introduced so late in the film. The Theatrical Cut suffered from this also. So again I can't really blame Agent 9.

Agent 9 you created a great Fan Edit and this version has made it's way into my Prometheus Blu-Ray Amaray for many more viewings.

i hadnt gotten around to watching the bluray when i saw this fanedit on fanedit.org

maybe it was the 3D, but i couldnt tell any deleted scene from the rest of the movie
basically to me, this IS the movie...and it is something else, i will tell you

the only part i could tell is the beginning sequence seemed like added 3D, but thats alright...was well done

this is a true emotional ride, and seemed like a real Alien movie to me :-)

Congrats to the faneditor, and keep up the good work!

P.S. that list of cuts/additions at the end was mind-boggling...no idea how you guys do this :D

This edit is great stuff... it takes a movie that I was looking forward to so much and delivers the satisfaction I should have felt when I saw the theatrical cut in the cinema! This is now my go to copy and my blu-ray will forever be gathering dust!

Masterful editing, and brilliant integration of the deleted scenes. Prometheus now FEELS like a member in the Alien franchise which is what I was originally hoping for. Agent 9 has done a fantastic job!
