    I sense Mass Effect plot here. The engineers wanted to kill humanity because humanity has created Androids who one day will create something that can kill all life forms in the galaxy ( xenomorphs )

    I didn't expect it, but this movie is even worse than Prometheus.
    See it once and then flush it down the toilet.

    How did humans miss finding the Engineer's planet when it's much closer than other worlds that have been surveyed, and up until a decade before the movie, contained a thriving, technologically advanced civilization? How can space travelers be so stupid as to not realize that a sudden, unexplained sickness that causes a formerly healthy person to start vomiting blood is caused by an alien pathogen? Why are the aliens created by these spores white? Why do they seem immune to bullets? Why are they scared of a flair, but not being shot? Why does David have brown hair in the present and the flashback to his creation, but blonde hair in Prometheus? How does David now have long hair? Does synthetic hair grow? If David's model of android made people nervous, why would they continue to use the exact same face for newer models? What happened to the giant structure that David docked the ship with? If he docked the ship, how did it end up crashed on the mountain? How can the captain be so stupid as to trust David after he's just admitted to trying to perfect a killer species? How does that other guy remain conscious after the facehugger attaches itself? How can the other guy remove it so easily? If Walter can self-repair, why didn't his hand grow back? How did David defeat Walter, strip off his clothes, strip off his own clothes, put on Walter's clothes and then cut off his own hand, all in the space of a minute or two? Why wouldn't the survivors run a full diagnostic on him when they got back to the ship? Why does nobody question how the second alien got on board?

    Don't try to explain, Alien Covenant is just plain stupid.

    so if the human/xeno DNA created that type of xenomorpth (the one we are familiar with) in 2104 to 2122 then why where they on ancient earth as a right of passage for the predators and an alien queen locked up in a underground pyramid I understand it isn't canon but it's kind of a contradiction and also where are all the xenos that must have been created upon David wiping out that race did he have a safari park for them somewhere on the planet was they asleep ??? who knows

    There is a twist, did you notice the Xenomorph tails, they have a striking similarity to the Engineers' planet docking station. The xenomorphs might be the actual inhabitants of that planet. The engineers invaded their planet and destroyed their species. Now David much like in Bible, fights for their (Xenomorph) side against the largest, mightiest race, Humans and engineers. The black goo bomb is like hitting the Goliath's temple with the catapult stone.

    i have a brilliant theory, when David and Walter fight for the second time maybe Walter defeated David and then took Davids memory chip and uploaded it to his memory which he saw what David saw and done and went through so Walter became David, uploading Davids memory is like overwriting his own memory chip so Walter is David, which would explain peoples confusion over how David changed into Walters clothes so quickly when there is no time for that its because Walter is now David thats why no clothes changing is needed...

    • TheSmashingTesticles
      TheSmashingTesticles 14 days ago

      martin gomez I really don't know where you're getting any of this info and what human made virus are you even talking about? None of the movies have ever mentioned a virus that was created by humans. David used the black goo by the Engineers to create the Aliens. The Aliens are not this ancient species that evolved naturally. Only the old comics imply that but the comics are obviously not canon.


    • martin gomez
      martin gomez 14 days ago

      The xenomorphs were first a species on a planet. Xenomorphs had always become a species in the natural way. They always were a species, they were never created with a virus that was made by humans, which then prototype xenomorphs that come directly from the virus are then quickly evolved by david.


    • TheSmashingTesticles
      TheSmashingTesticles 14 days ago

      Alien Covenant didn't change the origin of the Aliens. Before Covenant, there was no official Alien origin. There was nothing but a bunch of dumb fan theories and non canon comic books that say the Engineer is some giant elephant man.

  • Maurits Kool
    Maurits Kool 1 month ago

    Great video! But one questions still stays with me. So in prometheus they find the ship, it had these vases with the snake like facehuggers (I guess the first generation facehuggers) through which the 'first' xenomorph was shown at the end.

    David and Shaw fly away to the planet we see on Alien Covenant. David perfected these facehuggers and xenomorphs as explained in the movie. Now he flies away on the covenant to colonise a new planet.

    Yet in Alien 1 Ripley and her crew finds an engineers ship full of eggs with the facehuggers David designed which creates an xenomorph David also created. So, how did they get on the engineers ship all the way on another planet?

  • Silent Smile

    Why does it have to be explained? If Scott had told a better story we wouldn't need so many videos and opinions to explain the movie. For me he's trying to hard to tell a complicated story while leaving too many plot holes and some ridiculous characters. In Alien and Aliens the characters were people that we really loved or hated. In these latest installments the characters are just unlikable. You can't wait til they meet their demise... I wasn't really pulling for anyone except Walter who was artificial!

    Upgrading the human design could make it stronger, more beautiful, and add in a few new things like oh, photosythetic skin, gills, wings, regeneration, and truly beautiful looks. Making a horror cockroach with giant eggs and retractable jaws is nobody's idea of perfect. Upgraded human designs would be much closer to perfect. Alien quiet misses the obvious joy of beauty and bliss of good health and eternal youth.. which could be achieved through upgrades to the DNA Subsystems, self repair and regeneration.

    Just didn't understand why no member of the crew commented or even seemed surprised to come across an alien civilization (the engineers) with structures remains etc... they never even gave the corpses a second look!!! considering they wouldn't have known about Prometheus they would never have seen any type of alien before!! it would have been so easy to fix also a few extra lines with some surprised expressions would have done it.

    So David's now manning the ship. Why did he send out a transmission as Walter saying everyone died but Tennessee and Daniels? And why only keep Daniels and Ten alive? Also, the ending scene basically tells how there is a species of Aliens right? All because of David regurgitating the Alien embryos and putting them by the human embryos (which will create a whole population of them) ? And one more thing. Could Tennessee be Dennis from Alien? I never watched alien but looked at the characters and one was Dennis. I could of swore someone in Covenant called Tennessee by his real name which was Dennis or I could have just misheard, but could Dennis become Tennessee in the upcoming movies? Lol movie was SICK.!!!!

  • Jacques van den Berg
    Jacques van den Berg 1 month ago

    I don't understand why this movie got such a lukewarm reception from critics? I think when you put the story in to context of the first 3 films you will clearly realize that Mr Scott has finally found his footing after the few slips he took with Prometheus. Brilliantly acted, beautifully shot, imaginative score, CGI felt so real and tactical and finally he left us with more interesting questions than the films predecessor. The dialogue was always engaging even with the cannon fodder characters who were just there for the scares. Which comes to my only gripe with the film. The movie wasn't scary enough. I wasn't terrified of what I saw, I never had a moment when I had to look away because I couldn't take the tension of the scene. That is what makes Alien the superior of all the films in the franchise. Nevertheless when people view this film in a few years and view it as a piece of a larger story, including it's hopeful sequel, they will be shown to be wrong, just as they were wrong when they saw Blade Runner in 1982. A cult classic is born from one of the worlds most under appreciated directors. Give the man an oscar already and while your at it give one to Michael Fassbender too, he was mesmerizing.

  • American Born Patriot.

    The belief that seeing less of something retains the horror may be true , as the 1979 movie served that purpose as nobody , at that time, knew what to expect, however, anything beyond that afterwards would naturally have to evolve into a suspense and explore further by evolving the idea of a phenomenon that is alien and beyond human understanding.

  • American Born Patriot.

    There's no wreckage of the mother juggernaut. I say that it escaped to report to it's installation or homeworld.

    Franchises With Time Travel Cannot Be Combined

    I hope that Alien, and Predator are combined with Blade Runner for the equivalent of the DC or Marvel mash up. Soldier always interested me because it made me think of Terminator before Blade Runner. But as I read about grand mash ups, including Alien, Predator, Blade Runner, Star Trek, Firefly and more, I think we have to prune on the basis of time travel. Imagine the Alien timeline in the wake of Terminator, or Star Trek. How could any timeline survive with the time traveling franchises rebooting the probabilities? Granted the Connors keep seeing SkyNet reform and even the crew of the Enterprise suffer from deja vu. But really, the Earth in Blade Runner is different from the Earth in Star Trek is different from the Earth in Alien (particularly 3). So continuity cannot be maintained with the time traveling franchises, right?

  • Joe BLo

    What I don't understand is that the movie establishes that Dany creates a necklace using the little spike which she uses to stab David in the chin, but nothing came from it later when David switches places with Walter. She doesn't check under his chin to see if it's him when she's stapling his face? So if there is no hole that means it wasn't Walters body and David injected his consciousness into Walter. How did he do that?

    How about the Alien eggs? We never saw an Alien queen, where did the eggs come from? Did David create a Queen somehow? How without any subjects other than Shaw. Also why is there a mural of a Xenomorph in Prometheus if David hadn't created them yet? If someone created the Xenomorphs already then that would make David's motivations as a "creator" moot and pointless.

  • Ryan Gulliver

    It appears we humans were the first attempt at their creation. The "engineers" on that planet appear to be a lesser form of them.. maybe like a newer attempt at creation. Better then us and appear more like them but still less superior. The engineers have black eyes like they are the black goop or at least made of it whereas those other engineers have our traits (like normal eyes) with similarities to them but appear less perfect like deformations on their bodies and skin. The engineer we saw in prometheus was incredibly physically fit and seemed to have no imperfections on his face/body.

    Can't remember which which discussion video it was. But someone highlighted that the plant spores were a more efficient way of infecting people with xenomorphs. This is true, however it is very sedentary and requires someone to disturb the plants. If people realize this then they will just eradicate those plants. I think perhaps David thought about this so he therefore created the xenomorph egg which would be more resilient than the plant, in addition it would create the xenomorph David wanted and actively seek out a host, which might explain the aggression. In all I think it was a case of controlling the path of creation for David's xenomorph.

    David even comments the black goo never results in consistent results, hence why I think it's on purpose and represents their inability to back engineer their own technology from their ancestors. Even at the start of Prometheus they're treating it less like a controlled scientific endeavor and more as a religion, which to me implies that even then, they may not really fully know how it works anymore.

  • Admiral Ackbar
    Admiral Ackbar 1 month ago

    Did you ever consider that the Engineers are regressing as a society? Start of Prometheus: ship the size of a city. During Prometheus: much smaller ships with missing body paneling and holographic imaging that appears to be somewhat on the blink. Covenant: I think of that world as a colony world of their main society, sort of in an "old West" state. They react like YAYYY when they see the ship... possibly because their supply lines are stretched just THAT thin as a culture and they almost never get a ship coming to resupply them? Remember David's comments about the humans... "they're dying... they're going extinct... that's why they want to colonize... well I won't let them". The humans are creators. The Engineers are creators. I don't think it's a "different faction" anything. I think a million years ago the Engineers did it because they could and because they were at the stage where they'd just passed the apex of their technological abilities, and they had just began to sense their own decline, much as how the humans are at a stage of creating life and just beginning their decline. Further supporting this: they used black goo to seed all life on Earth. Now? It's volatile, it makes monstrosities, and most importantly those monstrosities are never consistent. They're always kind of random. This isn't to give the movie creature designers something to do, it's on purpose. Add to that their own base gets wiped out by their own black goo. It's almost like they don't understand how to make it work right anymore. Which goes along with the decline theory. Like you could picture a society 100 years from now that couldn't make a nuclear power plant to save their lives, but they can stuff the shit in a bomb casing.

    I thought Covenant had the right amount of tension. Despite having the idea of what to expect in those scenes with the alien, the tension was still there. It's like Alien Isolation with the xenomorph right there in front of you and you're looking right at the thing. It may not see you, but you see it clearly while having to not get caught by it. Different medium, but hey. My biggest gripe though was the ending. I loved the movie all the way up until the end where they launched it out in to space yet again. Though my heart broke seeing Daniels realize that it was David and not Walter. Still enjoyed the movie. The tension was there and the first scene with the neomorph bursting out the guy's back was terrifying to watch. Or maybe I'm just easy to please and can find the charm in this and Prometheus.

    What I simply don't understand in Alien: Covenant is as to why no one who was exploring the planet actually had any protective gear on. I know it's redundant in the end because either way, David would find them and convince them to take off their gear anyway but that would have added to David's character and the story in my opinion.

    The excuse of them having read the planet thoroughly doesn't fit with any sense when immediately after Daniels and the crew land, they realize that theirs no life and that there is wheat. if they didn't even take a clear read of the vegetation and animals on that planet, they obviously didn't read any microbiological life forms either. So why don't they have gear? That made me really ponder while watching the movie.

    Somewhere, in the middle of space,...while a Spacecraft is loading up the fuel cells, a goddamn "totally random" generated spolieralarm "IONIC BLAST" out of NOWHERE hits the ship....wow ! That sure took you weeks to put up together...damn such creativity is AWESOME !

    And a Guy with his little Walkmen Radio in the Helmet, catches a signal...because spoiler "HE WAS OUTSIDE OF THE NOISE FILTERING SYSTEM of the ship"...yeah damn...that makes sense. 20meters on a rope and you are OUTSIDE of the NOISE CANCELING FILTERING SYSTEM....yeahhh, thats what we all learned in the Sci-Fi School to write such a bullshit...

    The Captain goes into a dark room full of Alien EGGs, and even after shooting the alien that tried to communicate with the crazy Robot and EVEN seeing the DEAD BLOODY HEAD of the Teammember....."hell sure, lets go for a walk down into the dark chamber with the little friendly android that screamed at me not to shoot at the KillerAlien that kills my Team....WHAT CAN GO WRONG!"

    It gets even better...."WHO THE FUCK WOULD EVER, EVER LOOK INTO ONE OF THOSE ALIEN EGGS OMFG"...after such story 2mins before....omfg.

    WHO IS WRITING THIS SHIT !!!!?

    Ridley,....please,....don´t tell me you did it.

    Even the OBVIOUS BETRAYAL of Mr.Bad Robot omfg...IT WAS OBVIOUS only because you did not show the scene until the end, as he grabbed the Knife....and WTF 2 ARMS out of nothing ?

    THE WORST.....really THE WORST ALIEN MOVIE !

    Again,...ALIEN 4 WAS BETTER THAN THIS....and i loved Prometheus ! This is total garbage....
    And if the next Movie is nothing with a lots of SPACE MARINES and ACTIOn...then RIP ALIEN Franchise !

    ffs...Ridley Scott,....really ? The clumsy Protagonist Women even KILLS 2 ALIENS, easy...as long as we have enough Freighters on Wheels to throw at the Alien, with big spikes in the Front to catch them....

    i am so dissapointed....i would totally want to have my money back...sadly that is not possible....you pay and lose.

    how did David burn his hand off to look like Walter? how were David's codes able to open the doors to incubation on the covenant? did the backburster neomorph survive the lander explosion or were there actually 3 total neomorphs? If he needed humans for hosts, and he killed all the engineers to the point of needing to use Shaw as a test subject, where did he get the source material to make the embryos at the end?

    I think Scott actually said there are 2 castes of Engineers, religious and military. The religious use the black goo to create, the military to destroy. The caste seen in Covenant is probably the religious.
    And it would make little sense that the entire Engineer species, being very advanced in space travel, are all in this one little city on a generally wilderness planet.

      wintersnoob, Well since this is all made up, anything is actually possible. But a good writer wants their story to make sense, so should come up with a good explanation. E.G., bombing one city on Earth wouldn't even come close to wiping out the human race.

      That might be. But it's still worth mentioning that just because a species reached space travel and holographic tech, that doesn't mean their society is overall super advanced.

    More questions answered:

    How could David be the creator of the Alien? Wasn't there a mural in Prometheus depicting the Alien?
    The mural depicted older breeds of the black goo mutations, much like the deacon looked very similar to the modern Alien. The murals could easily just be another older depiction of the Alien seeing as just about all of the black goo creatures result in those elongated heads.

    But the ship in Alien (1979) was thousands of years old! How could that ship fit in the timeline of David creating the Alien?
    The ship was thousands of years old but does that mean that it crashed thousands of years ago? Much like in Prometheus David knew how to pilot the ships but did not create them, he simply flew an older ship from the installation. Easily he could have done the same with another ship that ultimately ends up on LV-426.

      And who's to say that he doesn't have a new member in the crew, we've clearly seen that he is manipulative. Aside from that we don't know the plots of the planned films, we could just as easily get a story with the engineers involved again, and one of them gets impregnated by David's new Aliens.

      That still doesn't explain why it had its chest burst open. Androids can't gestate xenos.

      The space jockey was not fossilized, what they thought was a fossil/exoskeleton was part of the actual ship. It was the suit that they dated and the suit in that seat was built directly into the ship. So if it isn't David in the seat it will probably be revealed who it is within the next 2 films.

      The Space Jockey in Alien was fossilized and with his chest burst open so no, that doesn't answer it at all.

    what you say is partly right, i do think the studio has pressuired scott to make a more direct action movie rather than story orientated either way they went for a movie to hold but further the auidience give them action, little story and further to next movie,its failed completely, fox might greenlight more but there gonna take another loss on this one domestic so ridley might be singing for his new trilogy

    Have we seen any female engineer? There seems to be at theme of creator inferiority complex linked to the relationship between men and women. Think of the way the women are both set aside (Prometheus) but seems to be needed (Shaw and the need for the mother) Looking at the original Alien movie it is heavely inspired by Sigmund Freud and the complex relationship between mother, fallos, killing your creator and so on. The theme of hating your creator while having a intens need to create, here in devious ways (not natural via a mother/women) via destruction and/or sacrifice might stem from being a species or entities that can't naturally create (like a droid and maybe the engineers if they have no women or somehow ruined the ability?) This could explain why the movie let David fall in love with Shaw. This love only cements the fact that he cannot create naturally (sex, love and impregnate) thus this need, this longing, becomes twisted and devious (as Freud states souch longings will if not forfilled) . David cannot recreate himself, som he recreates, or tries to, Shaw, so that he can make and create via her. But the twisted need makes for a twisted way that makes for a twisted creation; the alien. Freud states that a repressed sexul (creational) need will become a destruction action. We see this in souch films as Psycho, where the desire to penetrate a lovely naked woman with a fallos (sex and life) becomes the need to penetrate the naked women with a knife (murder and death). Maybe the sins of the engineer was the same as the sins of David? Coming from the desire to create like God and women but ending in death and destruction?
