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'll have to re-watch the Prometheus Unbound edit to see if it's still a more favorable edit than this as I originally pegged Unbound as the near perfect edit, but narrative-wise this feels like a close call.

This edit has a ton of re-working done to [mostly] seamlessly remove not only the larger issues, but nearly all of even the small things without affecting the original narrative. While I'm not happy that the TED talk made it in here as well (I seriously don't get why people think it belongs), everything beyond that is pretty smooth. There are some minor issues with audio editing where it clips in, as well as some of the 3rd act editing can get a bit choppy but nothing that stands out too much. Ultimately, the narrative here is smooth and I'm glad it didn't include any of the Earth/excavation scenes, and the Fifield departing from the crew bit - actually the whole Fifield subplot - worked very well.

Outside of the narrative, my only issues are with audio and video editing and [take this with a grain of salt] the video quality of the 1080p release that I happened to watch. It was very blocky, blurry, and just looked like it was encoded with a low bitrate even though the bitrate is 11mbps. Maybe it's just my source. I don't remember where I got it from to be honest, but if the version I watched is an official release, it looks upscaled. Regardless, it's a great edit and potentially in the run for best edit out there... I recommend this and Prometheus Unbound. Both are great edits.

When I first saw Prometheus I hated it. Well, I thought it was bland.

This edit improves the movie so much, I love it! There are still issues left (the biggest being the scientists acting like complete idiots), but it salvaged the movie for me.

The added VFX are great, never noticed anything wrong. Great job Agent9, my brother and I enjoyed this!

Definitely recommended!

I thought this was a great fanfix. The original was a big disappointment and this improves on it immensely. Can't say much without repeating all the other reviews. There were a couple of scenes that could have used more work where the added score drowned out the dialogue and it would have been nice to have 5.1 audio, but other than that it was excellent. Well done Agent 9. Highly recommended.

This edit was amazing! Character motivations are made clearer, silly parts were cut, the color correction worked well and the story was told much better. Having low expectations and not being a fan of the original I was extremely surprised as to how much of an improvement this was, the story came together more coherent and sensible, thanks to Agent 9, I will keep my copy of Prometheus on blu-ray and use this version as a replacement.
