Plot Outline:

The colony ship Covenant is on a mission to a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. Landing on what they believe to be an idyllic paradise, they instead find a much more dark and dangerous planet - one whose sole inhabitant seems to be David, a synthetic android and seemingly the only survivor of the Prometheus expedition. -- Chris Kavan

At first, I thought that this is another sci-fi disguising to be a very deep film. Well, it's a bit of that and a successful thriller. It is a big plus that we see two Fassbenders instead of casting an untalented one. My only concern in this film is that I don't see solid motivation of each character, like of course, they'll die one by one but I wished there's some degree of depth each and everyone. I haven't seen Prometheus so forgive me if I missed something that could have added a layer to my understanding of the entire film. Predictable ending, but yeah, still a good watch.

A return to form for Ridley Scott. I found Prometheus a bit underwhelming and even though Alien: Covenant tries a little too hard to be like the original Alien trilogy, it is, none-the-less, a definite step above the previous film. Michael Fassbender is especially good at playing both the "David" and "Walter" androids while Katherine Waterston is also good a Ripley-lite. It's violent and exciting, while still expanding on the mythology.

Major disappointment anno 2017

"They disobeyed a direct order. She buried her husband. No, Karine, it's not that. They don't trust me. And they don't trust me for the same reason the company didn't trust me … to lead this mission."

I never thought I would ever ask the following question: "Mr. Scott, could you draw a line under the whole Alien franchise and concentrate on other projects? Please?". As an "Alien" fan of the first hour, I was deeply disappointed about this film. In hindsight I thought "Exodus : Gods and Kings" was even better. It's best they forget about "Alien : Covenant Sequel" which is scheduled to appear in 2019.

I was actually more excited about "Prometheus" than about this creation. I ignored the whole fuss about the religious and exis...

DON'T TOUCH THE DAMN SPORES!!!

Ridley Scott is one of the most talented directors working today. But he is also one of the most uneven directors in terms of output. For every Gladiator, there's Robin Hood. For every American Gangster, there's Body of Lies. For every Kingdom of Heaven, there's Exodus; Gods and Kings. And now for Alien, there is Alien: Covenant.
It's a well made movie and there are a few genuine moments of tense thrills and suspense. The score is very low key but effectively ominous.The cast does try their best. Some succeed like Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, and oddly enough Danny McBride. The rest are redshirts. No nicer way to say it.
What Alien:Covenant sets out to do is to act as a bridge between the Alien movies and the apparently aborted Prometheus spin-off series. While Prometheus s...

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. While it doesn't make this connection as cleanly as some would like, Ridley Scott leverages the hell out of this connection to create the final scene. To be sure, this is classic horror movie with a sci-fi wrapper. You can almost feel yourself wanting to yell 'Don't go in there!' at a number of points in the film. Michael Fassbender delivers a dual-role performance that has the audience fearing him more than the xenomorphs. Katherine Waterston also delivers a great performance that is almost on par with Sigourney Weaver's Ripley (from the first 'Alien' film). The biggest difference being we see her character, Daniels, as a bit more vulnerable, and less hard edged ...
