    The movie was okay but the crew of incompetent and undisciplined stooges brought the movie way down. The effects were cool though.

    What the fuck? Why are the "scientists" so fucking stupid in these Alien prequels? I'm only 50 minutes into it, but it is just so fucking stupid so far. These people are actually dumber than the than the people in Prometheus. I'm calling them people because they sure as fuck aren't anything near scientists.

    Man this film was disappointing. Poorly written with characters who repeatedly make horrendous and frankly amateurish decisions. There were so many tropes worked in, it felt really lazy and I was bored. Admittedly Fassbender was incredible and almost saved the film, almost.

    This movie was atrocious. I couldn't disagree with you both more. This was not a return to form or really even an Alien movie (at least not what makes an alien movie good) Yes it does HAVE the alien in it, but that's as far as I would go calling it an actual alien movie. Nothing about what made either aliens or alien great, is here. None of the horror, none of the suspense, none of the awe or mystery. It felt like a transformer movie. The CGI alien was HORRIBLE.

    one of the worst films ever. weak character development. do you even know or care about the people that died. super predictable. from the first 5 mins you knew the ending. pathetic explanation of how the aliens were created. seriously from a jaded robot. the facesuckers were pretty much made pointless and my ineffective anymore with the introduction of the pod dust shit that you breath in and boom you spawn an alien. why use them not use them instead of the facesuckers I hate when prequels show technology is more advance then the future. also why did they go on a planet without spacesuits. pretty half ass story telling not scary or interesting.

  • Holden

    How was Danny McBride good in this movie? I think people are too willing to give him a pass because he's burdened with shedding his comedy roots and playing a serious role. That says nothing about his actual performance, which was only serviceable. I actually found his character to be irritating as hell.

    The biggest problem with this movie was that the crew had no personality whatsoever. I watched Alien right after I got home from the theatre and was amazed at how quickly that movie could make you warm up to the crew. Without characterization like that, a movie like this will fail, regardless of how many backbursters or engineers you throw in there. That's what every modern take on Alien or Predator can't seem to grasp.

    • James Goad

      Time constraints. The one thing I noticed about the movie was the emotional scenes are all too short. They feel something, then get over it too quickly. This movie could have benefited from a bit of a longer script.

    From my experience, I think you gave the best review I have seen on Youtube. People like Stuckman loved it and forgave its glaring flaws while AngryJoe crucified it and ignored many of its redeeming qualities. I believe your review was fair but well rounded and how the same movie could be so divisive among the same Alien fan base. Great job and thank you.

    I'm laughing at these clueless idiots. This movie was complete trash. It's so fucking dumb it surpassed Prometheus for how dumb the plot is. And no we got the aliens created by a rogue android. Fucking Ridley Scott pulling George Lukas there. Don't watch this shit. Vote with your wallet for quality entertainment.

    First two films are still the best, always. COVENANT was sci-fi fun. I really appreciated David's dark reality and experimental madness. The true "ending" was unpredictable -- with those two little treats he made. 😄

  • Rolando aka Power Man G

    The Covenant Crew was horrified they didn't know what they were dealing with Seriously and Walter is not malfunctioned I think he will get re programmed and go back to normal in the Next film in my opinion find out where David is and finally destroy and this time think and out smart David straight up can't wait for another AI Fassbender to return o hope he does and Fassbender is the best for this movie

    Alien is my second favorite movie of all time, Aliens is my third. I even liked 3 and Resurrection (Winona Ryder gets you a lot of bonus points from me). Prometheus was okay, I enjoyed it for what it was - this movie was a MASSIVE disappointment for me. I don't want to spoil anything, but I will say based on the trailers and reviews similar to this I went in expecting another Alien. It was not even close. I felt it dragged in the beginning trying to redo the same stuff as Prometheus, and when we finally did get what we wanted it felt like not enough.

    Ridley Scott didn't ruin Alien series. Alien fanboys did. Prometheus was great and had an original back story which could be developed into something extraordinary. But because it was not understood by low IQ alien fanboys it has forced Ridley to change the story and kill the one of the most promising storylines (engineers) hollywood came up with in last few years. Keep being happy with crap movies and awesome CGI. You will ruin the whole scifi scene.

    I really liked Prometheus and loved Covenant. I would give it around 8.5 or 9. The character of David is great and the movie looked amazing. I can't really think of any complaints other than typical horror movie stuff like "oh this person was an idiot" but even that was minimum. This blows Alien 3 and 4 out of the water.

  • Angelo Carr
    Angelo Carr 3 months ago

    I guess Dr. Manhattan wasn't strong enough to fend off a face hugger...I enjoyed it very much but I'd be lying if I didn't have some issues with the film, only natural I guess...

    Couple Questions:

    1. Why make it seem like Franco had an actual point in this movie and then kill him off within the first 10 mins of the film?

    2. Why did Daniels not question of whether that was Walter or not? That was a situation too dangerous to assume.

    3. Why wasn't the "Engineers Arc" not touched on more? Considering this was a continuation of the last film it only made sense to answer some of the questions Prometheus raised.

    4. Where are all the xenomorph spawns from the city of engineers David killed off?

  • Tom Moschen
    Tom Moschen 3 months ago


    Really disliked the movie. Lazy and predictable. "I gotta take a pee" was the moment I actually regreted paying to see this shit. Good actors and a horrible script and plot. David was such a good character in Prometheus, both good AND bad, now he is just an asshole evil genius? Awful CGI throughout the whole movie, the best scenes are in the trailers and the short clips. And even the good trailer already spoils some parts of the movie (shower scene), and gives you the idea that the movie would be a lot different. Also the engineers ship was left behind in this new planet and how the hell is it going to land on LV-426 since David escaped on the Covenant ship? How many movies are they going to squeeze to make them all conect to the first one? Honestly, if I knew that Alien Covenant would be that bad, I would not bother watching. And I loved all Alien movies so far, even the bad ones and Prometheus. I hope that Blomkamp makes his "Alien 3" movie and hopefully he makes it a watchable film. Still, it seems to me that its not hard to make a good Alien movie and somehow they fucked up anyway.

    Ryan Larsen 3 months ago

    I thought it was a good movie on its own, but in the context of the series I didn't like it. I thought it did a disservice to Noomi Rapace's character from Prometheus. Prometheus set up the redemption of David and the partnership of Dr. Shaw's character and David and Alien Covenant just shit on it. Also we already had a evil robot in the first Alien. It was a rehash of Alien and Aliens and does nothing to resolve or add to Prometheus or the Alien franchise in a meaningful way.

  • Will DePaula
    Will DePaula 3 months ago

    Right off the bat: Who goes to a planet they never heard of without a helmet and Space suit, without any form of protection? Is that how space exploration will be done in the future? As soon as Michael Fassbender reappears in the end it was pretty clear that was David, that completely spoiled the twist. And the question "why the big bald dudes from the previous movie hate humans?" will never get answered now. Just because you like certain aspects of the movie it does not make it a good story.

    The 'performance' of James Franco probably has as much impact as most other actors. The characters are empty we don't get to know them. The plot is boring and dumb. So were most of the dialogues and the decisions made by the crew. I give it a 5/10. 'I'll do the fingering'... really?

  • BirdsElopeWithTheSun
    BirdsElopeWithTheSun 3 months ago

    I though the movie was Okay, better than Prometheus, but it still doesn't feel like an Alien film, something just feels weird.
    Alien 3 is a thousand times better than this movie, even Life was a better Alien film than Covenant. The CGI creatures looked fantastic, except for the 2 times the Xenomorph was up close, which looked awful.
    Nobody does anything “quite” as stupid as in Prometheus, but people still wandered off on their own and trusted David to look inside an egg, right after he had just told him that he created these things that just killed one of their crew members... what the fuck are you thinking! I loved the parts from the original score, it gave me chills.
    The scenes with Walter and David were incredible and David is quickly turning into one of the greatest movie villains. At the same time as I hate him, I understand where he's coming from and find his way of thinking to be almost beautiful in a way. Covenant explained everything about him and it makes Prometheus a better movie, as for the rest of the characters... yeah, they were kinda flat and uninteresting.
    I still think Prometheus should never have been connected to Alien universe, not knowing who the space jockeys were, why they were transporting all these eggs, and where the eggs came from, helped make the original -79 movie feel so much more "Alien".

  • Ricardo Aguilar
    Ricardo Aguilar 3 months ago

    Ridley Scott is absolutely free to draw the path of his Aliens' mythology, because it's HIS mythology, not ours'. If he decides to create the Engineers, the Deacon xenomorph, the albino deacon xenomorph, it's OK because it is his story. If Scott decides to make David a super villain, it's OK. If he decides to create his own Alien's mythology without hearing anyone's expectations, it's OK. Finally, Nor George Lucas neither Steven Spielberg nor whoever other director do it. On the other hand, if the crew of the Covenant spaceship make several stupid things is because -I guess- Ridley Scott underlines how humans, under pressure, usually make stupid decisions. This can be confirmed in XXth Century spatial historical flaws. Example 1: Why the Apollo 1 crew died during a test? Example 2: Why the Challenger blew up? Example 3: Why the Columbia was disintegrated during its return to Earth? Because there where scientists who made stupid decisions under pressure. Nevertheless, the problem is - I think- that Scott usually builds this stories based on violations of security protocols. I think he could overcome this weakness.
