This site, The Vigilant Citizen, is concerned with the use of symbols to often hide an agenda in plain sight, hence as in a X-files episode, ridicule any possible discussion that there is a potential threat by responding, you're just quoting a video or TV show or movie. This article, unlike the one about Sherlock Holmes, doesn't necessarily reveal a sinister bent. In fact, Prometheus, the Titan, in Greek mythology is a sympathetic figure. But there are symbols on display. Is the analysis correct? I don't have the expertise but there are some intriguing points raised. Also realize there spoilers. Yahoo posted an essay that the film was one of the most disappointing releases of 2012. Perhaps true as art, but Scott's and his colleague's work provokes debate, then it achieves a greater purpose than mere entertainment...
Prometheus, a favorite figure of the elite, is prominently displayed in the Rockefeller Center.
Excerpt:
Prometheus and the Quest for Enlightenment In Greek mythology, Prometheus is a Titan, the primeval race of deities that came before the Olympians. He stole fire from the gods in order to give it to humanity – an act that enabled progress and civilization. For accomplishing the act of bringing fire (a symbol of divine knowledge) to humanity, Prometheus became an important figure in the mythology of Mystery schools, such as Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism, which are based on the usage of occult knowledge in order to achieve godhood. The Judeo-Christian equivalent of Prometheus is Lucifer, a “fallen angel” of great intelligence who, once a favorite of God, then defied him and brought a new form of knowledge to mankind. The name Lucifer is Latin for “light-bringer”, which is exactly what Prometheus accomplished by bringing fire to man. This “light” is said to be the occult knowledge taught in Mystery Schools, as it allows “enlightened humans” to ascend back to godhood. The story of the Watchers and the Nephilim described above also appear to follow the same archetype as it tells the story of “sons of God” rebelling against his rule and descending to Earth, teaching humanity important knowledge. Also, like Lucifer, the Watchers are dubbed “Fallen Angels”. Where therefore see that there’s a lot of inter-connectivity in these mythos and in the movie’s symbolism,. At the beginning of the space trip, the president of the corporation funding the mission holds a briefing and gives a speech regarding the importance of the mission: “The Titan Prometheus wanted to give mankind equal footing with the gods and for that, he was cast from Olympus. Well, my friends, the time has finally come for his return”. In the movie, Prometheus is the name of the spaceship that transports humans to their alien Enginneers. It symbolically represents humans using the “fire” (knowledge) that was given to them to ascend back to godhood (their alien creators) by their own means. This metaphor of spiritual initiation is reminiscent to the many mythological stories found throughout History that hide a similar esoteric meaning. However, Mystery Schools believe that illumination is not given to all, but only to a chosen few and this is aptly reflected in Prometheus. In the movie, all of the people who were on board for selfish, monetary or insincere purposes died. Only the one that was there for the truth and with a strong spiritual faith survived. This type of narrative is on-par with allegorical stories of spiritual illumination stating that only the true of heart will reach that higher state of being. Other than Elizabeth, another non-human character survived, David the Android. Towards the end of the movie, David gets his head cut off but, since he’s a robot, he stills functions. Elizabeth takes the head and continues her journey, symbolically meaning that she needs pure intellect and technology to reach enlightenment. David has great intellectual capacity, making him believe that he is superior to his human colleagues. Despite this fact, he is nevertheless crucial to Elizabeth’s quest – a subtle message stating that transhumanism is important in human evolution.

On the "transhuman" from this site, see here: http://vigilantcitizen.com/latestnews/mass-media-promoting-transhumanism-the-mind-blowing-benefits-of-merging-human-brains-and-computers/
Kurzweil is however not a lone nut with a crazy futuristic dream. He works in collaboration with the world’s most powerful people in business and politics. For example, in February 2009, Kurzweil collaborated with Google and the NASA Ames Research Center, to create the Singularity University training center for corporate executives and government officials. The University’s self-described mission is to “assemble, educate and inspire a cadre of leaders who strive to understand and facilitate the development of exponentially advancing technologies and apply, focus and guide these tools to address humanity’s grand challenges”. It is safe to say that transhumanism is not only the goal of one man but of the entire global elite. For this reason, the merging of humans and robots is not only promoted as something “cool” and positive in mass media, it is announced, despite its potential pitfalls, as an inevitability. Here’s an article from the Daily Mail about Singularity. It bares the typical “overwhelmingly-positive-but-with-a-hint-of-obligatory-criticism-to-appear-objective” tone most mainstream news sources use when covering the issue. - See more at: http://vigilantcitizen.com/latestnews/mass-media-promoting-transhumanism-the-mind-blowing-benefits-of-merging-human-brains-and-computers/#sthash.NjJ254YW.dpuf

TL;DR, but maybe there was a question in there, somewhere, that I missed. What, exactly, are they concerned about in this movie? Space travel, androids, origin of life, stupid scientists?

Questions raised below:
In Conclusion While most moviegoers probably stepped out of the Prometheus thinking that it was a “decent alien movie”, digging a little deeper into its meaning and symbolism reveals an entire other layer of interpretation. Drawing inspiration from the Ancient Astronauts theory, Prometheus proposes a radical rewrite of history and theology, one that makes humanity a product of extra-terrestrial “creator gods”. The movie also intermixes this quest for scientific knowledge with spiritual and metaphysical questions, making this story not only about angry aliens, but about timeless existential questions. As the title of the movie suggests, the story of humans going into space to find their creators has an underlying esoteric meaning, as it can be interpreted as a metaphor for spiritual enlightenment. The Titan Prometheus is a central figure in occult mystery schools, an archetypal figure of a “rebel from above” that brought divine knowledge to humanity – with all the benefits and pitfalls it engenders. Occult secret societies believe that this knowledge provides the path back to divinity. The same way the spaceship Prometheus leaves earth to find the Engineers, occult initiates look to leave the material plane to reach illumination and “be one” with the Great Architect of the Universe. That being said, is there any truth to the many stories and mythologies referring to a divine figure coming from above to impart knowledge to humanity? Do the figures of Prometheus, Lucifer, and the Watchers of the Book of Enoch have factual basis to them? Is there an “outside” source for humanity’s advanced and esoteric knowledge? Was there once a Nephilim-type “super-race” on Earth helping humanity develop itself, but ultimately corrupted it? Is this the “missing link” in human evolution? Is it the reason why humanity is self-destructive and somehow out-of-synch with the rest of the planet? Does this outside source come from aliens as suggested in Prometheus or from fallen angels and/or demons as written in ancient texts? - See more at: http://vigilantcitizen.com/moviesandtv/prometheus-a-movie-about-alien-nephilim-and-esoteric-enlightenment/#sthash.Nhezcjw7.e7e3mXy7.dpuf
