Movies.com: You throw religion and spirituality into the equation for Prometheus, though, and it almost acts as a hand grenade. We had heard it was scripted that the Engineers were targeting our planet for destruction because we had crucified one of their representatives, and that Jesus Christ might have been an alien. Was that ever considered?
RS: We definitely did, and then we thought it was a little too on the nose. But if you look at it as an “our children are misbehaving down there” scenario, there are moments where it looks like we’ve gone out of control, running around with armor and skirts, which of course would be the Roman Empire.

Guess what? They crucified him.

Probably the worst bit was when they woke up one of these godlike beings that supposedly engineered life on earth then was disappointed or whatever so tried to undo its mistake. What does this representative of an incredibly advanced ancient civilisation have to say? URRR HULK SMASH

Remember when Roger Ebert said Alien 3 was on of the best looking bad movies ever made?
Well anyway, here's his 4-star review of Prometheus:
