    I thought when the wind made "Walter's" hoodie come on, it was foreshadowing that its actually David

    This is why I hated this movie. The complexity of a astrophysics masters class would have made more sense. Thanks for your input and the explanations, because this debacle of an alien movie should never have been made.

    What about this, it's a simple binary issue that the engineers have a problem with humanity reguarding.... they abhor synthetic technology. There advanced civilization is based on organic technology, and they maby actively suppress synthetic technology.

    Just look at what happens with our own technology. David.
    Perhaps the engineer attacked them and decided to destroy humanity after seeing David, and how low we will stoop relying on our synthetic technology. See how he steels himself briefly after inspecting David, than attacks.

    The "engineer homeworld" is like a roman or Greek city. No lights or wires anywhere, yet they had a mothership hovering right there. Perhaps it's cause they haven't been developing synthetic technology there, so they are allowed to develop.

    Finally saw this at home, what a dumbass movie. I began routing for them to all die after the first guy got infected. I can't stand movies that give people who obviously didn't graduate high school the responsibility of the mission. All of them were so stupid, I literally cheered when their ship blew up.

    Well other than the bonus reward of actual biological specimens from helping them it could also be that the reason why David helps is to see his creation in action. His goal is to create a perfect organism

    the next movie takes place during the 10 years we missed from what I heard. its like a prequel to the sequel of the prequel.

    David assisted because he needed to see if he had already created the perfect organism or if he still needed to engineer it!

    well , i think david died at that scene where he was going for the knife bandit was walter which had both the acceess codes of both david and walter and that makes the real villain, the "mother". The difference between daiv and walter was, david was living the feeling of being god and walter was just being the sinister.

    as a movie its pretty good, as a sequel to promethius its total bullshit, we were all waiting for her to reach a new planet, and she isnt even in the movie they wrote her off as being killed, it just turned into yet another survival against aliens movie, no new races discovered, no explanation as to why they created us to begin with, its like a cheap bungled sequel, but as a mindless time killing alien movie its pretty good.

    It's my hope, that in the next film, it will show how the Alien/Xenomorphs arrived on LV-426...which raises a question for me- if David killed off the Engineer race, how did the 'Space Jockey' get onboard the alien ship that the crew of the Nostromo found in the first film?

    • TheSmashingTesticles
      TheSmashingTesticles Day ago

      David did not kill the entire Engineer race. He only killed the Engineers in that specific area on the planet. Engineers will return in Alien Covenant sequel.

    In the part of the movie when david helped the last survivors to kill the alien, the reason for that might be that David is experimenting with daniels because there is an scene in which David gives a kiss to Danny and maybe in that moment David introduced something into Danny's body

  • John Hodge
    John Hodge 5 days ago

    Wait if you (David) create the perfect being then does not that make the creation (Alien) the perfect being esp since the creation is well...much better then the creator even able to kill the creator. Now the creation (Alien) can create etc. In other words you can not create the perfect being unless you yourself are perfect and in that case you could only create a replica or copy of ones self since it is you that is perfect. A perfect being can not create a perfect being that is opposite of the one creating it, if that was the case then the creator would not be perfect.

    What I noticed about this film was themes and quotations from previous Ridley Scott films. For instance, the severed arm sacrificed for love is from Hannibal. Also Blade Runner quote from Roy: "That's The Spirit!". There was a third I noticed but forgot about, I might watch it again. There are probably others .

    David docked his ship into the big scorpion like station, released the black spores, woke up Shaw, Shaw later wanted to leave David, she's scared and sends a distress signal, then tries to fly the ship out into space but either she crashed or David interfered so she crash landed. After that David felt betrayed and started using Shaw for experiments.

    The inhabitants of the alien city in Covenant are not Engineers, they're another colony similar to humans. Notice how they have no technology, they have old world clothes, no electricity. The only technology is the Engineer spacecraft landing station. They probably see Engineers as Gods who sometimes come to visit. So the Engineers are still out there and David likely didn't know at first who he was bombing. He then learned it was a simply colony, and so he makes the xenomorphs so he can wipe out the actual Engineers.

    But if he has his chip, then that would mean he should know about the Cabin. If he has Walter's memories now through the chip, he should know about the Cabin and should have been able to trick Daniels.

      Because of the Alien looks almost like a machine. Part flesh. Part machine. The Alien has an exoskeleton that gives it a metallic appearance and has tubes on its back.

    When they landed on the planet without protective gear really got me triggered!! Like wtf! I get that the air contents such as nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide levels promote biological life; but still!!! they could've avoided the whole damn tragedy if they wore protective gear! Or send a fcking terrestrial and areal drones for biological and environmental reconnaissance!! this was entertaining but not as well thought out. 3.8/5

      Also, David is disappointed with men and has been impressed by at least two women. Maybe he feels that a woman would be a better God / Queen

  • theframe100

    I'm fairly certain that the engineers planted subspecies here and there (like humans), and the beings on paradise were one such subspecies.

    The engineers home world shown here, looks quite primitive. It is hard to believe that this is where the engineers came from. The engineers in prometheus is a space faring race with advanced technology. The planet shown in the movie look quite primitive with hardly a light bulb. Anyone else notice that there were no other horse shoe shaped ships anywhere in the vicinity of the engineers citadel? There was only a docking station , possible built by the actual engineers who colonized this plant.

  • Marcos Tocchetto Pires

    I'm not sure why all reviews and explanations about this movie fail to understand what David was doing with shaw and wanted to do with danny, he wanted to create a queen. The disected shaw scene, she has aspects around her head that resamble the queen. Also, when Orum asks what at the eggs waiting for david reply "mother", another reference to a queen. All alien movies are around a female protagonist and the progenesis of an alien from her

    David is helping them at the end, because he wants to level the playing field. Once the alien is defeated at the end, you can see a sense of disappointment in his face, almost as him saying 'I didn't create a strong enough alien to outwit/outsmart these humans'. He has more work to do.

    I have a theory that the black gew/spores are the equivalent of a blank paper. it does nothing or is nothing until you edit it. I think the engineers designed it to be in many different forms for many different uses. they can edit it to do certain things like edit one's DNA and create an organism. which brings me to David's experiments he wants to play god and create organisms and be the higher power. he killed everything on the planet with the black gew and he might've designed it to do that and engineered it to make the specimens.(neomorphs/xenomorphs)

    If you look at the Alien movie series as a whole, the second one (Aliens) is the most loved and the least nerdy. It was an action movie. This latest one was the most nerdy and most hardcore old school sci-fi. That kind of movie isn't for mass consumption.

    Alien Covenant takes place in 2104 and marks the birth of the first Xenomorph as we know them. Yet Predator 2 is set in 1997 and you can clearly see a Xenomorph skull in predators ship in the end scene. While I know you are all going to say these movies are in no way linked i thought this was a significant oversight by the director.

  • Gucci Roach

    Bro fuck these gay piece of shit robots, I wanted to see Shaw interact with the engineers. Alien Covenant is just stupid as fuck. It's basically just a generic, violent predator horror movie. What happened to the original questions? The illuminati saw Prometheus and were probably like, "Nope, scrap that, we're getting to close to the truth." What a shame, they completely fucked up the original storyline. Now they left us with an immortal gay robot, that hates the human race, and has 2,000 humans to experiment on. We already know where this is going. The gay robot is going to make an army of faggot aliens that are going to invade Earth and other planets occupied by humans. Dumbest shit ever man.
