I am so Upset that David Created the Alien, Also doesn't make sense, since Aliens were in Prometheus... Also the Ending was Bad Because I liked How Daniels Turned out and then you find out that she becomes a Host (I would Assume) but that sucks because her and Tennessee were the only survivors (and only ones I liked in the movie) and How did David Beat Walter? It DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE!!!!!!!
This movie is so underrated
They ruined the Xenomorph in my opinion. Showed it way too much, the freakiest part about the original Alien was not knowing where it was.
So I did think or thought that the Predators vs Aliens was happening long before David was Even invented himself to even begin to creat these Xenomorphs. ???
The Gestation period of not the Protomorph but Xenomorph seemed way way way sped up before it becomes a Full Grown Alien?
I honestly blame Damon Lindelof for a lot of this franchise's problems. He created mysteries in Prometheus without thinking "How is this possible" or "How would we answer this?" and that asshole always does that, he just comes up with mysterious stuff that he has no idea how they can be answered. I wouldn't be so pissed if he hadn't shit on the Alien universe specifically.I really despise him as a writer and think he should be permanently fired from Hollywood. So sick of his shit.
I think that David got inspired from what he found in Prometheus or he found out there how you make the aliens
I still think that a large part of the movie was cut out, including james franco scenes
I just sa the movie and the ending gave me goosebumps and I never get goosebumps while watching movies 🎥
This movie is fucking stupid hate it. Nobody asked for it and it doesn't exist in my book. RETCON THIS SHIT
If its his mad experiments that make the Xenoimorph what is the sculpted mural in Prometheus representing a crucified Xenomorf?
If you've seen Alien then you must know that's not a xenomorph at the final act of Covenant. The eggs are bigger , They burst faster & have a more organic look. It's a protomorph , David is trying to create the perfect killer which is the xenomorph from Alien which is why David observes the protomorph hunt Daniels and Tallahassee & sees that it isn't perfect yet which is why he lets it get killed.
6 more Alien movies!? Aww fuck!
*Jeremy* I Loved The Movie Pretty Much Till The Ending, Drop My Personal From 10-9 Walter V.s David Scene Was Epic!!! I Cried When Walter Didn't Make It..
Good breakdown, it did kinda waste Prometheus... That Story was fascinatiing.
It was boring
I really liked the movie. Even though we didn't get any answers. I loved the interactions between David and Walter and the Neomorphs (the while alien creatures) really made me feel uncomfortable because they looked really scary. I'm exited about the next movie and if er get answers or even more questions.
And man how stupid was the crew..and after 10 years they should have had better technology than Prometheus ship...but they don't even have that self treating medical seat ..also the weapons they use are sooooo 2001...I loved Prometheus it made sense
So people are giving this amazing movie shit because they didn't explain more about the promethean's? Are you joking.....
1:55 HOLY FUCK!!! her head is HUGE!!!
To everyone who are annoyed why the Xenomorph grew so fast in this movie, you do know that it also grew that fast in the first Alien movie right? :/ and to note, they were asleep most of the time which they didnt state how long, so thats probably enough time for it to grow since it has a increase growth rate. I hate how most of the people rant how bad this movie is. It feels so overreacted when they say that. You cant blame their so called "stupidity" when it seems more like panic or carelessness that kills them. and you cant blame them. seeing shit like that come out of your friend's back or mouth... fuck, I would cry in fear if you ask me.ALSO, the guy poking his head to the Egg. remember, John Hurt did the exact same thing, and I dont hear any rants about his curiosity -_-
Biggest dissapointment. Worse sequal ever...
yeah this movie was chopped to pieces. even the gay characters were all but cut out of the movie. dick move imo. wish i hadnt bought it.
are we going to ignore the blatant progressive/sjw elements shoved in for the libtards? Interracial couple and sex scene (for the libcucks) and the fag couple. What about a male protagonist lead?This movie was dogshit on so many levels. Jeremy is a FUCKING sellout.
>horror movie>some scary partsAre people really this retarded?
I agree with you 100%, I wanted answers but all I got was more questions. I hate when Studios set up movies for more movies, you never get answers that way.
I liked this movie. I hope they make 1 more.
John Denver take me home country roads
5:13 i would have literally cried with laughter in David made that exact gesture at the end.
Spoilers : James Franco was Fired before he could wake up .🤣😉
this movie makes prometheus look like the masterpiece of the decade
The thing that bothers me is that the airborne virus seems way more lethal than the facehugger. You can shoot a mist demon thing.
david has become way to important in this movie. didn't like it.So, all the first Alien movie actually starts in this planet, not the planet where we had prometheus? This got me really confused.Plus, then the Aliens are not an Engineer creation, they are an "David the asshole robot" creation. REALLY A BUMMER. Another real bummer is what happenned to Shaw. She was a great characther, and then just dies off screen. Not cool.So, David was a asswhole all along? He didn't poisoned Shaw's husband in Prometheus out of acting for Weyland's curiosity, he did all this mess for himself?Can't believe how the bad guy just actually survived an enginner attack and so much more.And c'mon, that scene where the Captain lets David bring him right to the trap... no one would far for that. No fucking way. David was showing already to be completelly craycray and not caring for human lifes, and already had said "perfectly safe" (regarding one place where a girl got beheaded) before. So no, the captain wouldn't have been stupid enough.David now is going to reign in that other planet? Or he'll drive a ship full of aliens to Earth and we'll have an xenomorph apocalipse movie, finally? Cause this is what every movie fights to avoid, and here the heroes failed.
Really really really ssshhhity movies, both of them
they trolled us. Wanna see James Franco? Dead. Wanna see shaw? Dead. Trolls everywhere
David created xenomorphs not neomorphs. Neomorphs are product of the black goo
Lol.. I agree, I wanted more answers but I still very much liked the film.
i give james franco 5/5
Technically there are no xenomorphs in this film
I don't think David created the Xenomorph, I think he just studied it
I want to see a New Predator movie, or in the next one tie Predators into it& possibly see how they were made. Will be bad ass
I believe the transmission was John Denver.
this spoiler review is really picky. personally i think alien covenant is a masterpiece. why does this guy comment about James Franco and his performance we all know there isn't one.......who gives a fuck! overall its a well executed movie with ambiguous elements int it which i love :P:P:P:P:P
Is alien franchise connected to AvP?
disappointed af by this movie. not scary at all
I don't get how people don't like this movie, it was a great fucking movie i loved it!
Obviously David didn't create them if they are on the mural Jeremy.......
Another great beat by beat explanation of what happened.
So now somehow Scott has to get the Xenomorphs David created onto a different Engineer ship and that ship has to somehow crash onto LV-426 for Alien to eventually happen.And if that does happen the IQ of the human race has to rise sharply to the level of the original Alien characters. Genetic engineering maybe? Prometheus and Covenant were equally dogshit in my honest opinion (Fassbender' performances aside).
The movie is kinda shit, especially the fact that it seems to be populated by characters who are the biggest imbeciles you've ever seen. Make the Prometheus School of Running look like the smart ones.
you funny jeremy
I give this movie a B+. Nuff said.
It had been five years since I really hated a movie, Alien Covenant pissed me off, this movie basicaly shits all over the story set up in Prometheus, and says "You wanted Prometheus 2 with answers? Fuck you the main character is dead, and this is Alien the begining"
06:10 "What is God, what is creator, what is creator that becomes obsolete, what is loooove, baby don't hurt meeee don't hurt me, no more!!!" Yeaaah!
The song is Country Roads by John Denver
Jumanji 2 trailer review;!!!!
I still don't get the "perfect organism" thing.How? Why do they just kill everything in sight and reproduce or lay dormant until something else to kill shows up?They're the ultimate killing machines I guess but beyond that they'd not ultimate anything besides douchebags since they'd wipe out every planet they inhabit.
"I saw it on house once" -A true Doctor
Honestly I like Prometheus more then this movie because at least prometheus had some intelligent people in it who actually did go to a school. The people in this movie literally felt like they were thrown out of school and then Elon Musk said "lets push these morons into space and see where they can go and if they last". I got frustrated thru 2/3 of the movie and the ending was nice. A bit of a "of course" but you know.. it explained things. But like you said.. doesnt explain the stuff in prometheus really. Which is why I respect prometheus more then this frankenstein of a movie lol. Also the Aliens grew far too fast in this one without any real food..sure its scary but what the fuck. Thats now how I remembered it
So uh... Did David rape Elizabeth before killing her? He said he was going to do "the exact same thing" he did to Elizabeth, then proceeded to mouth fuck her. And he also mentioned that he loved Elizabeth. Maybe David was all like "I love u" to Shaw and she was like "fuck off weirdo" so he fucked her first then opened her up? Eh, overall didn't like the movie that much. They glossed over David murdering the whole civilization that fucking created human kind in like a 60 second montage what the fuck? I thought the movie would explore the engineers more but nope, we just get really gorgeous shots of a city built by Gods and then they get the fuck out of there. Was there only one city on that entire planet? Did the engineers solidify after the virus or did xenomorphs pop out their bodies? We don't know.
Its not the engineer planet
imagine what will happen if or when he goes back to earth
i love how alien vs predator contradicts the the new alien series movies
I enjoyed this movie
It is a very disapointing movie, even lower level then Prometheus. The sergeant was like a hobo the protagonist woman was like a little housewife. The acting was really not good except Micheal.
This timeline has gone full X-Men
I was never so dissapointed by a movie in my life. Everybody involved was practicaly brain-dead but acting captain had like negative brain power (like everyone gets a little dumber in his proximity).
the Prometheus side of the movie I found more interesting. I like aliens but I think its time to also explore these other creatures like the deacon and the Neomorphs or any other interesting mutations
That David logic is a dick move and if I were Wayland I would tell him that the only way he can validate his superiority is when others creatures like both of them validate it. Basically just because a god thinks he is superior doesn't mean that it's true until everyone accepts it. If he cannot accept it than David is the no different from a failure. I mean why is this movie kissing so much robot ass? It feels exaggerated.
dude you talk as if you were high on crack. maybe my tiny brain can't keep up... you just talk so fast...
Actually, it wasn't David or the engineers who made the first xenomorph, it was thousands of years ago by the predators, but when they killed the queen at the end of AVP, they had ended the line of the normal xenomorphs we are used to, and then recreated by David.
Okay, hold the fuck up, Xenomorphs were created by David? That's their fucking origin? Are you kidding me? How much of a slap in the face is that to Alien fans... The whole point of why Xenomorphs are cool is that they are this crazy unstoppable force of nature. They are some monster from deep space of unknown origin. The weyland corporation wants them for some reason when in a way, they created them? They created David, David "created" the Xenomorphs. Ugh that just pisses me off and makes AVP make even less sense, i know it's not canon, but still.
David didn't create the xenomorph he basically stole blueprints of xenomorph DNA from the engineer home world and just did it his way
I don't get everyone's complaints.The whole movie was about everything in prometheus. About creators and the created.
Slow claw Arm catches superfast Zeno Morph 😒
Really wanted to know what happened to Dr. Shaw. If Ridley was smart, he wouldn't have scrapped her storyline, and this movie could've been about Shaw and David on the Engineers planet and how she slowly starts to realize David's intentions of experimenting to create the perfect organism, instead of being killed off in between movies. That way, she would end up getting her answers, and we would have a tense sci-fi horror movie because slowly we see David becoming a(n) antagonist rather than just being left to fill in the blanks ourselves. Alien: Covenant was a missed opportunity, I would really like to have seen Shaw find out that David was the one who infected Dr. Holloway in Prometheus, and see her character realize that she's going to suffer the same fate or worse. Missed opportunity.
is it possibile that the pioneers were not our creators? the movies didn;t explain what the prometheus pioneer had said to David. Maybe they were doing exactly what people are doing, finding ways to colonize other planate, so they went into space found earth, and wanted to return to extinguish all life forms and then come an populate?This made David realize that life forms in general are not made to create but to survive/destroy? So he went on the path of creation as he understood it?
The reason the chestburster was different was because that Xenomorph was actually a protomorph. So it wasn't the full Xenomorph
When will they come up with an "Ass Burster"?
So when exactly did the predators start hunting them huh!
Truth be told I really don't like the origin of the xenomorphs as given in Prometheus and Alien Covenant, nor do I like the origins of Weyland Yutani. While these AvP movies may not have been that good, the expanded lore and origin stories given for both the xenomorphs and the company as well as how the Yautja tie into it as shown in the expanded media based on the AvP franchise is excellent. And For the longest time, it was accepted as the canon origin. Then Ridley Scott comes in and says "nope, that's not what happened. If it happened in AvP, then that's not what happened. And I'm going to write my canon movies in a way that there is no possibility of tying anything that was established in AvP into the canon. Sorry to anyone who accepted that canon, but I'm not sorry." I just don't get it. I get that he doesn't like AvP that much, but to go out of his way to make it impossible to find any connection between the previously established origin and his new canon is a dick move to those fans who accepted the origin. And not only that, even some things from the original Alien movies don't add up anymore. Like Michael Bishop Weyland from Alien 3, the descendant/android copy of Charles Bishop Weyland from AvP. Along with designing the Bishop worker android line, he runs the company just like his ancestors did for many Weyland generations. Except, that Prometheus made the founder of Weyland Corps Peter Weyland, who is not related to Charles and has no children of his own to continue his legacy, hence his desire for immortality (and that he founded the company in the late 21st century, but I digress). So how can Michael Bishop Weyland even exist? To me, Ridley Scott's new movies destroyed the canon. And I don't know why he feels he has authority over the series. Until Prometheus, he only ever made one movie in the entire franchise, and had no involvement in any of the following media. Just because he directed the first movie does not make him what George Lucas was to Star Wars, what Gene Roddenberry was to Star Trek, or what James Cameron was to Terminator. Hell, he's had so little input on the future instalments that he doesn't even pass for what Wes Craven was for the Nightmare on Elm Street series.
So, I know a lot of you will cringe at the idea of me bringing up AVP, but how would that movie even make sense if the Xenomorphs hadn't even been invented yet?Either they were and David just found out how to recreate an ancient species or yeah, Jeremy's time travel thing. I'm really not hoping for the time travel thing.
When you see this movie, you realize how good character Elisabeth Shaw was. Such a shame we didn't see her here..
i feel like hearing music from earth playing on an abandoned planet would be a massive red flag, but like you said in your spoiler free review everyone in the alien universe is dumb as fuck when it comes to protocol.
so you mean to tell me that Michael Fassbender character created the aliens well what about the Queen alien who lays the alien eggs. so you mean to tell me that Michael Fassbender is the Queen alien this is ridiculous. has everybody forgot about the Queen alien that lays thousand of the alien eggs which produced the facehuggers. somebody call James Cameron to save this franchise because Ridley Scott just destroyed the alien franchise.
Look up Alex Jones' review of this movie, trust me
I thought the alien at the end was the Protomorph not the Xenomorph
Just a side note; Everyone's saying how bad Covenant is. Back in the day, Alien, aswell as John Carpenter's The Thing, both got panned and didn't do well. Now look; they're both up there amongst the classics of cinema. Just saying.
I actually didn't mind this film, probably because I was willing to go along with the story and not get infuriated because it didn't pan out the way I thought it would have leading in to Alien. Wasn't great but I don't think it deserves the flak some people are giving it. But David was a brilliant antagonist; when a film character pisses you off and you want them to get theirs, you know you've got a good villain. I'd say 7/10.
I always felt David's motivations were a little lacking, and this film really didn't do much for that.What I genuinely cannot understand is why Elizabeth rebuilt his body. Wire him into the ship if you have to, but don't just let him walk about freely, because that's proven to be an awful idea.
I personally didn't like the fact that David made the Xenomorphs. Just my personal opinion.
I 100% got the Data/Lore thing when I was watching the movie. Unfortunately that Star Trek storyline made it way too easy to predict how the Covenant story was going to go.
what people want : David and Shaw at the engineers plantwhat people get : boring crew, Shaw death , David is a creep. no explanation to the engineers.
I loved the movie but it did leave me wanting more
with was an android so i could join David in cucking civilazation feels bad man
i loved Covenant, mostly because the tension never left the movie and there were actual surprising shit that happened, unlike Prometheus, where you could see everything coming from a mile away. while I was watching Prometheus at some point I started thinking "huh, David is a bitch, who would have thunk it". while I was watching Covenant the whole time I just thought "wow, David is a BITCH". Fassbender crushes everything in his path once again
