Plot Outline:

The colony ship Covenant is on a mission to a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy.

A good mix of 'Alien' and 'Prometheus'

I wasn't sure what to expect going into this one, but I did enjoy the fact that this was such a strong tie-in with Prometheus.

The biggest difference being we see her character, Daniels, as a bit more vulnerable, and less hard edged ...

Alien: Covenant - Review

"I'll do the fingering"

I liked "Alien: Covenant" a lot. Didn't have much expectations going in and was pleased of what I saw.

It's a movie for both fans of Alien and Prometheus.

For me, I really liked Prometheus and was interested in the ideas it brought up. I mean, I do agree the character's were idiots, but I wouldn't call the rest of movie complete sh*t because of that. The criticism were so heavy that it made Ridley Scott change his mind of the ori...
