The original Prometheus is an overall decent film but is very flawed, thus it's not hard to see why it's so heavily divisive among critics, audiences, and fans of the Alien franchise. Prometheus: Giftbearer reincorporates much of the deleted material to create a much richer, smart, and more satisfying and thought-provoking experience that works beautifully not only as an Alien prequel/spin-off but also as a standalone sci-fi/horror film. The footage added in makes the story, themes, and characters more compelling and much better-realized than in the theatrical version of the film. The editing is absolutely flawless. The additions of Peter Weyland's TED Talk and Elizabeth Shaw's video message to the Weyland Corporation really give the film much-welcome depth and make the events play out feel personal. Fantastic stuff.
