    I saw the movie. And the only thing i could take out ofthemovie which is rather bland is that the characters and the decissions made by them are some of the dumbest things I have ever seen. I mean you havemore inteligent characters in a summer teen horror movie. The cheap ones with dumb blondes that do a lot of stupid shit.

    Well the characters of Alien Covenant just managed to double down on stupidity. And for that and the whole premise of this movie I find the whole thing forced. The sheer stupid level encountered just takes me out of the movie. It feelsand it is forced. Bad writing I believe.

    I give this movie a 5/10 max.

    My evaluation of this film 6/10

    1. Without spacesuits on an unknown planet
    2. The command of the covenant behaves stupidly the whole movie
    3. Destruction of the race of engineers in 1 minute
    4. Elizabeth Shaw in general shown in the form of a corpse
    5. The xenomorphs are developing too fast

    The idea of the film Prometheus was buried spit on the world of the gods in favor of restarting the series.

    And why the world of gods is such a wretched one small town with 10 thousand engineers??? The gods live in caves and walk in rags it's stupid.They fled like cockroaches and generally how they could admit an unknown ship he could pose a danger after 2000 years. Maybe I'll change my mind when the director's release comes out.

    I didn't really like the movie that much. I don't care much about the lore. I just like the aliens and they were pretty good movies at the start. The horror/suspense moments were not very good. You knew they were coming, and they weren't shocking when they happened. I had to suspend too much belief for the story line to flow. Two people slipping in blood cliche was shit. The "suspenseful" moment between David and Walter was just too predictable. The aliens looked cool, but take away the amazing cgi, and it is a B-grade horror film. Just my opinion.

    i watched this movie for the "Engineers" ... rather than gluey alien shit ... very disappointed .... more questions than answers ... Prometheus was definitely better than this shit ...

    Y'know my favorite parts about this were the parts without aliens actually. Walter, Walter in general, going about the ship before anything bad happens, the flute scene of course, the ship powering up. It just felt like the last twenty minutes they were trying to cram in as many visual cues from other movies as possible. *Spolers* Remember when they try to blast the alien into space in the first two movies? Remember when Ripley was in a tank top and armed with a gun at the end of Aliens? Remember when Lambert is disturbingly implied to be raped with the alien's tail? Remember when they wore big space suits like in Alien? Because they sure look different from the one Tenseness and Arkon used for repairs. I sort of wish Scott stuck to the the Engineers. I mean they aren't that interesting compared to the Xenomorphs but they had potential. I still wish they were elephant people though.

    Basically, he says, "I was unhappy that the producers decided to make the movie about what it was supposed to be about". It's like saying, "I was unhappy with Godfather 2, because it was about the mafia". It is SUPPOSED to be about the mafia! It's a Godfather sequel, and that's the definition of the word 'sequel'.... Alien Covenant and Prometheus are about the same thing, aliens that lay eggs in your stomach, grow quickly, and kill everyone. Did you expect this movie to be a drama about a young couple in 1939 who travel to Belgium to meet their ancestors, but get caught up in ww2?

    Hello everyone! I review films and books that I feel are underrated and go a little under the radar. Despite Alien covenant being a huge success financially, it is seen as a strong instalment in the franchise but not much else by most. I feel it is as strong and possibly one day as iconic as the first two alien films. If you are interested in quite a different take on this movie then please take a look at my channel and tell me what you think.

    Watched it - boring, predictable, and doesn't take the Alien franchise anywhere.
    Ridley Scott is doing to the Alien franchise what George Lucas did to Star Wars - rape his own creation.
    Please keep Scott away from this.

    Alien Covenant has also officially gotten rid of the Predator connection.

    The movie, while having beautiful visuals, was no better to Prometheus.
    The scientists are still retards, the aliens are now popping out of everything, the end twist could be seen from a mile away.
    Nothing about this movie was memorable, apart from the scenes where you're just shaking your head going, "I paid to see this piece of shit?!"
    I'm hoping Neil Blomkamph can do something better with the Alien series

    Total shit movie. Ruins a lot of the alien lore and makes the alien into a total mindless beast. Instead of this hyper intelligent alien.
    Very paper thin. Glad you like shit movies.

  • DigestingGummyBears

    I am giving up on the next alien movies. The horror and suspense have become a lot less especially in this movie. You know what I remember most in Alien? The characters being hunted down one by one by the alien.

    you know what I remember about this movie? The androids playing the recorder.

    I want an Alien movie that keeps me on the edge of my seat. This movie kept me looking at my watch hoping it ends soon.

  • DragonBat362

    This movie was a disappointment for me. The effects, action scenes, and some of the concepts were cool, but ugh, the character's were so STUPID! Exploring an unknown alien world WITHOUT SPACESUITS! Plus, none of them were than interesting. Half of them I don't even think had names! The twist with David was so obvious, I saw it coming the moment he grabbed the knife (and I avoided all spoilers before seeing the movie). And as cool as they looked, the Aliens were onscreen for WAY too long to be scary! Seriously, I think this movie gave the Xenos more screen time than all the previous movies combined!

    And Scott once again skips past all the questions Prometheus left open. Did the Engineers create us? If so, why? Why do they want to destroy us? Why were there murals of the Aliens in the cave on LV-333? Did the Engineers create the Aliens or were they simply a byproduct of the goo? Why did the Engineers leave us a map to LV-333 in the first place? What was up with that opening scene in Prometheus? Where does the ship on LV-426 fit into all this? Never explained in the slightest! In fact, it raised even more questions! What exactly did David do to Shaw? Why'd he kill all the Engineers? Why do all the Aliens follow the AVP rapid growth lifecycle? Where did David get his new body? Why are the effects of the black goo so inconsistent?!
    For everyone left confused after Prometheus, Scott just issued you all a giant "Thanks for the money, f$ckers! See you at the next film!"

    The problem with the fanbase of this movie is that they are just people who expect some gore here and there. In some ways Alien is a B movie franchise, and it attracts those people. I haven't heard one god damn praise of the whole David sequence, and y'all are bitching about how the Alien CGI was "garbage" (everyone says that about EVERY SINGLE MOVIE EVER) and that the crew was dumb (which I will give). But really? There are dumb as fuck characters in every horror movie. The movie as whole worked with these characters. All the Alien movies had idiotic characters. And this movie has some of the most compelling writing regarding creation/God I've ever fucking seen. It was beautiful.

    The only reason I can tell why FOX would invest in Alien Covenant is probably due to extra revenue they hope to get and compile with the Alien 5 budget. Little did they know Alien Covenant was going to fail. Now all the extra income they hoped for, will never happen.

    FOX better pray the international pool does better than what they got in the US, cause this film didn't satisfy either fan base for Prometheus or Alien. The film felt like an experiment but that can't be right cause experiment are prior to distribution practices.

    I had the exact opposite feeling at the end of the movie. You felt fulfilled, yet I felt like someone who only got a taste of what I wanted to see. The limited scenes with the Xenomorph we remember were too few and they got me pumped up for more, but then the movie ended. Most of the characters were idiots, and you could see the twist at the end coming a mile away. In the end, I feel the same way as I did with Prometheus, like there was so much enjoyment to be had but it never quite got there.

    The problem is that we haven't had any real innovation in this genre like we've seen in other areas of horror.
    With Shyamalan you had disruption, with David Robert had disruption. Space moves, however, have evolved very little.

    This was the first movie that I did not watch the trailers for in like, ten years. I found it being the best Sci-fi thriller since Moon. That being said, I don't know if this is because the movie itself was brilliant or that my expectations where non-existent. The only conclusion I can make is that I Will never watch a single trailer again.

    Disappointing...This movie didn't satisfy any of what i came for. It was very predictable and the writing and plot wasnt very intelligent, the crew especially. Early on and after the first of MANY stupid, irrational and completely unbelievably decisions made by the Director and subsequently the characters i got the sinking feeling we were in for another "generic thriller" was tons of Tropes. Prometheus had so much potential but ultimately with every new release that preceded aliens 1979 I lose more and more interest in the franchise.

    If you came to this movie to watch smart characters in an impossible situation, you will be left scratching your head, or outright pissed. This movie should not be in the same universe as the original Alien or its sequel. This is Ridley Scott giving us his best George Lucas prequel impression. The characters are written so stupidly that it is undeniable. Unless somehow the existence of Transformer movies has collectively dumbed us down to a level where people are giving things like this a pass. So sad.

    You new age idiots that want everything now have no respect for the work of other people. The movies are what they are for a reason. The people making them know far better than any of you, including the idiot making this review.

    this was an, excellent movie, as was Prometheus. If you think you can do better. If you can have an original thought and put it on film go do it. stfu. go do it. stop riding someone else's story and trying to tell them how they can make it better. stfu and enjoy it.

    Prometheus is one of the most underrated and misunderstood science fiction movies in recent memory. Do NOT view this as a prequel to Alien. It is part of the same universe, but while the first 4 are action/horror films, Prometheus is a sci-fi adventure that explores the origins of mankind. This concept is something I've always wanted to see put to screen, and Prometheus delivers so well that I'm enthralled by it no matter how many times I watch it. The cinematography and score are Oscar worthy, and the direction and visuals are near perfect. I believe Prometheus would be much higher rated if more people went into it with an open mind. The first Alien did have mixed reviews upon initial release, and now it is an all time classic. I really think that one day Prometheus will have the same status, and I hope the sequels are more appreciated.

    This movie was a boring thriller horror with buggs.

  • Jackson The Stacker

    I just saw this movie and it was ok, but not the best. I think Daniels and David were the best characters of the movie, but I think they should've left Prometheus behind and just continued. There was WAY too much screen time on the planet rather than in the tight, claustrophobic space ship from the first Alien movie. I can see there being potential for a great few sequels, but I think this one just want that great.

    • Jackson The Stacker
      Jackson The Stacker 7 days ago

      I might just be biased though because I personally thought Alien was the strongest movie in the franchise. I really loved the claustrophobic element the first movie had and based on the trailers, I thought there would be a lot more of it than there was in the film. I really liked the scene where Daniels was on the outside of the cargo ship with the alien. It was extremely intense and very suspenseful. I also really liked when the alien was first born. From then on, I was just kind of bored with the movie though.

    This movie was a 40/50 in looks but a 20/50 in plot, maybe less. And Fassbender had less charisma than a piece of cardboard. Everything he's been in lately has sucked. Perhaps that's just his bad luck, I don't know.
