    Alien: Covenant hits theaters on May 19, and fans couldn't be more psyched. Formerly known as Prometheus 2 and Alien: Paradise Lost, this latest installment in the Alien saga continues the story set in motion by 2012's divisive Prometheus. Here's why we think this sci-fi horror flick is going to be a return to form for the Alien franchise — and a big step forward from the last movie...

    Well it's too bad Alien Covenant had some things that were far more ridiculously dumb then taking off a helmet in a breathable atmosphere. Example, a xenomorph, one of the most agile fierce predators that exist in this universe, gets crushed because oops he just wasn't quick enough that time around. My ass dude, this thing can walk on walls upside down.

    I really enjoyed Prometheus... covenant was a 2 hour long trailer for camping gear. Literally the most interesting part was when I could tell it was about to be over. Aliens are in the movie about 10 minutes altogether. The rest is just sexual innuendo and stupid people doing stupid things.

    Having just seen the film , I must say that while it is a logical sequence to Prometheus and full of the suspense and action, it is a pity that 90% of the plot is played out in near darkness, making it hard at times to see what the hell is going in. Nevertheless, it is definitely worth watching and is a worthy sequel to the previous films with an ending which, if not exactly surprising, gives fans of the Allen saga hope that Ridley Scott has plans for at least one more film.Having been a fan myself since seeing the first Alien film in the cinema back in the early 1980's, I sincerely hope so!

    Just saw the movie.
    Was blown away by how it sucks.
    - It contain literally zero answer beside what Ridley Scott promised.
    - No fear / anguish in this movie (CGI don't help honestly). Forget about the claustophobic feeling of Alien, you will not find it.
    - the end plot is one of the most badly written I have ever seen, you can witness it at half the movie. If this isn't proof of a bad script, I don't know what is one.
    - Plot holes are as massive as in Prometheus
    - Character development is on par with Slasher movies
    - Dumbness of protagonist is even worse than in Prometheus, a few example :
    1 - Space Colonist don't even wear mask protection against micro organisms when they explore a totally unkown planet: WTF
    2 - They follow David in the temple without asking ANY question, even when he say that they're "safe" from the monsters in a temple that if clearly NOT closed. They prefer to do fire and to take a shower : WTF
    3 - The new capitain follow David in his "cave" after seeing him SPEAK with a Neomorph and beeing SAD with his death (anyone with half a brain would have shot David right after seeing this and go alarm his team of the security breach in the temple, but not him) and after that he EVEN put his fucking head on the Alien Egg when David ask him to do so : WTF ??

    I know some will love this movie, but I serously can't when the characters are too dumb to be true, or when the script is so bad.

    Just my opinion.

    Alien covenant was a HUGE let down with major flaws , how is David meant to be the one who created the alien suckers when all past films shows they have been around for thousands of years , in alien vs predator in normal alien film plus alien vs predator:requiem so on and so on . Big let down

    • eureka0521

      I don't know how canon the predators films are, but you're right about the eggs. So either David jumped back in time, or he just recreated something the Engineers already made.

    Had a such hope for Alien:Covenant. They made us really curious about the origin of the Xenomorph and what will the engineers say or something along those lines and what they actually showed us in the movie utterly disappointed me.

    Saw this last week and in my opinion I was disappoint The crew make far worse mistakes and make even more stupid decisions in this than they did in Prometheus. I was going to walk out but I kept hoping the script would improve but it just got worse. In all I thought it failed to be better than Prometheus.

    Ridley Scott knows what he is doing? Really? If juicing money producing mediocre movie is what he does, then yes, he know how to do it...

  • Empress Bethany
    Empress Bethany 2 months ago +1

    Oops, Looper, you got this one wrong. The crew of the Covenant was the dumbest, most poorly trained crew imaginable (as well as just generally lacked personality). They set foot on an alien planet without any protective gear!!! And what got them? Spores -- one of the very reasons you wear protective gear even if you are opening archaeological finds on Earth.

    The so-called "twists" in the plot were incredibly predictable, I thought we were watching written as a Syfy monster movie like Sharknado or Anaconda. And a shower scene, really? Ridiculously overused in horror genre AND inappropriate for scifi. Even if that couple suddenly got dibs on the water rations for all their dead crewmembers they decide to blow it all on shower sex with all the shower jets going? It is totally appropriate to waste precious resources on a multi year mission. Heck, maybe they should vent the oxygen and roll around on food rations just to up the thrill level. So dumb.

    I found the most disturbing thing in the movie the lack of curiosity the crew exhibited towards the alien city. I guess they were just ignorant dirt farmers just intent on building houses because that asked practically zero questions about the dead city. That right there made this more of a run of the mill monster movie than anything remotely worth considering scifi.

    Prometheus had its problems, but it blew Covenant out of the water. Covenant was only little better than Alien 3. Soooo disappointing.

    COVENANT had sooooo much potential. Yet we waited 5 years, half a decade for unoriginality and a plot with predictable moves that insulted our intelligence. I'm upset because they royally slapped Prometheus in the face, and once again really explained nothing but David has a fetish to create and destroy things.

  • Jeff Davison

    the movie sucked... I think it was just as bad as Alien 3 and Alien 4 (Resurrection) ... First, the premise and start of the movie had so much potential then just sucked after they landed on the planet. Everything is off especially if you are a fan of following the original story lines of how the Alien (xenomorph) actually develop... In the original Alien and Alien 4 movie the face hugger would attach to the face, then let go, then the human host would be alive for a little awhile while the embryo develops and then "chest burster" would bust out of the rib cage as a snake like xenomorph and then it would run away for it as it took time for the xenomorph to fully grow. In Alien Covenant throw everything you know about the Xenomorphs out the window. In this movie the xenomorphs are born fully formed midgets and apparently grow to full size in a matter of minutes... smh and the big "m shamylan night" twist at the end of the movie isn't a twist or surprising as everyone in the audience already knew about Walter/David. smh... I seriously want to forget about this movie and hope they have a reboot or remake.... I wanted to see the back story of the Engineers/Space Jockeys... Nope, apparently they are all wiped out of existence in a 10 sec flashback scene... smh
    This movie was such a let down... bad bad bad movie....

    It blew me away, all right, with a colossal realization as to how horrible this movie is. The plot is full of holes, the decisions and actions of the crew are ludicrous and the terror is telegraphed as much it is in "Halloween" or any other horror genre series. It's slow and then it's fast and then it's slow again and then it's fast. There's no character development at all among the Human crew of the ship but there's way too much useless development of a returning character and a great deal of his participation in this shipwreck makes no sense. Ridley Scott has succeeded in destroying the Alien series and there is a terrific need for another director to step in if this series continues and it will take a monumental effort to redeem what was once a great concept.
    Do not waste your money on this garbage. Wait for it on Netflix and avoid it even then.

I do not care about CGI or grand effects.Wanted to see ALIEN prequel.I got straight to DVD sci fi horror story .Mediocre.But if you take into consideration that this is supposed to be on par with original or even ALIENS?

      Daniels talked to David about the cabin they were going to build together by the lake. Only problem is that David has no clue what she is talking about (since it was Walter that knew about the cabin). David doesn't respond to the question, and Daniels can see on his face that he doesn't know what she is talking about. Daniels then understands she is in fact looking at David, and freak out.

    Covenant is disappointing as all hell, zero suspense, hell, zero atmospheric music even, not to mention plot holes, rushed last act and watering down the franchise with numerous new alien sub-species which were not even remotely mentioned in the original quadrology which according to the timeline happens after covenant. Oh and by the way face huggers now only need to touch your face and you've been implanted. In nostromo the hugger fed on the host and carefully cared for the soon to be alien, which grew inside. Pathogen aliens are like an instant soup too. 5 minutes and you now have your own little alien to play with... The decision making done by bland characters is ludicrous to say the least. Fuck 2k colonisers, there's my wife down there, lets risk crashing. Hell, let's send a mission comprised of, almost exclusively, couples. That won't affect the decision making at all... right? I'd rather it expanded upon the synthetics and engineers, not try to touch upon everything and end up with a mush held together with duct tape... Fassbender's role was the only light at the end of the slimy tunnel but it's not enough. The last "bossfight" was an icing on the cake... waste of keyboard though. Welp there's my late night rant.
