    So human beings indirectly created the ALIEN by way through a man made robot.... I thought the original film was called
    ALIEN. Lmfao! Give up Ridley...stop making it worse you clueless old pseudo intellectual prick.

    Its actually destroyed, everything I loved about the original alien, I thought when I first watched it, but that pilot of the alien ship that looks like a Trilobite, the Trilobite is where the artist got all the alien designs and ideas from, the first creature to exist or something, that we supposedly evolved from, is IN the original Alien, so, maybe this was where he wanted it to go all along? or maybe when he saw Jurassic Park, and the little mosquito idea, he decided hed go that way with it and have aliens created in a lab, maybe it was his idea all along to do that. I THOUGHT, the original Alien, was a perfect species of survival, that had nothing to do with humans at all. They might have to reboot, scrub, the whole franchise and literally start it all over again, same goes with Alien vs Predator :(....oh sorry he explained it at 1:18 , Prometheus is very successful...ok, that's why he went that way. :( The real sad part about this movie..................its made me not care about Alien anymore , i think ill stick with Alien 1 and 2 and DITCH all the rest.

    This the best review of Covenant so far.  Biggest movie disappointment of the year.  No one wants the Alien to be created by a dodgy android with a god complex.  I was happy with the Alien just being the Alien.  A scary, ancient, unexplained nightmare that came from the deepest, darkest parts of space that no one in their right mind would ever want to travel to.  Stay off the loony juice Ridley and fix this mess.

    Covenant basically took the plot of a b movie where the newlywed couple has an auto accident during a storm, seeks shelter at a spooky mansion, meets their mysterious host, who, as it turns out, has nefarious plans for them. Variations range from "The Most Dangerous Game" to "The Rocky Horror Picture Show".

    Nothing is up with him. He hates the fact he was forced to put xenomorphs in his David movie, as backed up by his previous comments. So he's trying to ruin the franchise.

    Only true sequels to the original Alien are... Alien: Isolation and Aliens (in that order, actually).

    Everything else, including the prequels, can go to hell.

    Unintentionally hilarious moment: man exuding blood from every orifice is brought back to a ship's med bay, whereupon a supposed doctor comes in protected only by RUBBER GLOVES! No mouth or eye protection. And when the guy inevitably splatters blood in her face and eyes... does she even go to wash that crap off? Of course not!

    Ridley Scott is fucking useless. He pisses all over the cannon, fucked up the mystery of the origins of the Xenomorph, and his characters continually do completely moronic things to get from point a in the plot to point b in the plot. Audience must continually turn its brain off.

    The biggest problem is that Scott is so set up on making these movies as philosophical treatises (there's all that what is God/creator etc etc) as opposed to just good Alien films (like the first one; a horror movie) that the plot becomes so muddled with all this philosophy and becomes very inconsistent.

    faithful sequel to prometheus? i don't think so. most of what made prometheus interesting is missing from covenant. in that case most of what could have made covenant a good film is missing because crybabys and the studio wanted more alien an less prometheus in it. now we have this abomination of a film nobody likes. :(

    HR Giger made the Alien and the Mythology, and LV426, and the Alien ship, and the chestbuster, and the facehugger, and the eggs, and the pilot. No one understands it like Giger did.
    Without him & his influence they have moved further & further away from his original concept which was the first original movie.

    Ridley has lost his touch if ever had any gift at story telling. he got lucky and had a magic team for A1. this shit is all about robots and pretentious trite stupid elitist dialogue that just ruins the film. covvy is such a turd in raises Prometheus to a masterwork. the box office has spoken to the fans who hate us the detractors! it's a flop, accept and don't blame "bugs & guns" fans. fuck you Ridley, hand over the keys.

  • Bryan Manning

    The frustrating thing to me is that going into both Prometheus and Covenant without ties to the Alien franchise i think would have made them fuller more fulfilling experiences.There is enough good science fiction and thought provoking stuff in both that if fully fleshed out and focused on fully without having to shoehorn in Xenomorph shit they could have been very good movies on their own.

    Ridley Scott should have done these films on their own merits and the next Alien movie should have been Neil Blomkemp's Alien except instead of live action use a full on CGI thing with the IG actors reprising their roles retconning everything past Aliens.

    Prometheus was a good movie I wish fanboys would just let the Ripley, Newt and Hicks characters go. That was 31 years ago get over it. Prometheus should have got the sequel it deserved had the fanboys not complained about Prometheus, which is a better movie than Covenant.

    Yup. That's pretty much it, they took the greatest straight-forward sci-fi horror, and made Babylon 5.

  • Chrisindapurplehouse

    He sort of did and he didn't. He crossbred the trilobites with neomorphs (they facehugged them). Out of the neomorphs burst proto-queens, they gave birth to the eggs and some of the eggs contain queen facehuggers. So, xenomorphs pop up and queens give birth to more eggs whenever a human or another sentient creature comes to the planets they're on. He's responsible for this, but also deacon xenomorphs are created when the trilobites facehug humanoids and they look very similar to the final xenomorph form, so he didn't really have to cannibalise the species. It's possible that he introduced cybernetic enhancements at some stage in the process, but the black goo is probably a form nanotechnology, so maybe not.

    Ridley suffers from a huge case of hubris without recent merit. Gladiator was 17 years ago, Alien 38 years. Outside those two trump cards there is not much to look at outside relatively mediocre success. It's George Lucas syndrome. He needs to gtfo of the IP and franchise as a producer and just direct but I doubt his ego and attitude would let him. Most will write off these prequels and long term pretend they never existed. Long story short he's flogging a dead horse....and doing a shit job of it.

    absolutely agree with you one hundred percent the fact that David Michael Fassbender because he's probably the highest paid actor he's popular is not the creation of the xenomorph garbage the engineers or the space jockeys should have been the creation this whole movie should be based on the space jockeys because this is why these movies are happening now we should just call these prequels David the Android

Yes the acting was good. Yes it was pretty. Its an F don't watch. Lost in Space was better.

  • Based Joe
    Based Joe 22 days ago

    ridley scott says he's going for a "war of the worlds" type deal which is kind of ironic in a way, because the reason there are so many problems with the alien franchise is because of this tug of war going on between the two differing visions, ridley's version vs cameron's. is the alien the star or is it ripley? the more movies ridley makes the more i think he's lost his touch. i kind of dislike the idea that he gets to own creative license if he has gotten this lazy with his story telling. he is literally pulling a george lucas right now.

  • Kelly Pfeiffer
    Kelly Pfeiffer 22 days ago

    Ridley should have used Styx's Come Sail Away when Tennessee was retracting the Space Sails in the beginning because Tennessee was a big fan of 20th Century pop music and then later at the end of the movie Tennessee could ask Walter when being put back into hyper sleep for Walter to play the same song he played earlier and David wouldn't know what song Walter had played. More entertaining and more exacting than, "help build our house" which is easily deniable and like Guardian of the Galaxy, it makes the use of modern music entertaining and helps out a plot point in the film.

    or, by fan retcon, what if David created one specific strain of the xenomorph "bloodline", but the space jocky's made our beloved traditional xenomorphs? despite what Ridly Scott says. the logic for this comes from the red alien and black aliens from he old comics. could this be a fesable​ movie theory?

  • Terry Foster

    Mr. CorderyFX If you like blood and gore, and like to be terrified and horrified, I have a suggestion. Join the USMC but before you take the oath and sign on the dotted line, insist that you be given the MOS OF 0311. This way, you have a very good chance of getting paid for, and witnessing, all the blood and gore you want. In addition, there is the added bonus of being terrified and horrified for a long ,long time to come. All this is free, curtesy of the United States Government. Sound good? Sign up.

    I agree with you totally about Ridley Scott. Never been a good story teller.

    Rule one on alien planets protect against alien contamination. Where a god damned space suit! It ruins the whole premise of the movie if you think the crew is just plain stupid. It is so basic it defies all logic and Scott has to take full responsibility for what can only be described as incompetence, hubris and/or stupidity.

    Ridley Scott is a visual director and an excellent one. But he cares less about plot and actors and his films suffer because of it. He's a glorified cameraman. Let's face it this franchise died after the first two films. The rest of the films have been occasionally interesting but in the end inconsistent, disappointing, unfaithful to the Alien canon.

    Alien Covenant stunk. Big rip off. I'm glad I only paid $5.00 to see on discount day. It was nothing but a cheap monster movie. Poor Michael Fassbender had to put up with a terrible story and script. The only reason James Franco was in it was to try to get his hands around Micheal Fassbinder's legendary penis.

    Ugh, I got to say, I've said some shit about the director that I don't really feel good about saying, but god damn this movie was insulting. Not as an Alien movie, but as a movie alone. Bad acting, abysmal writing, with the only good bits being scenes that are never explored, like the Android's relationship or the interesting new aliens that are nearly immediately killed off. I guess there are the action scenes, but they were almost all confusing messes where I literally couldn't figure out who had died in them. Even the final one was literally ripped from a better Alien movie.

    In all honesty, it was on par with freaking Jason X. *Jason goes to space* for Christ's sake. Characters were all about equal in intelligence and uniqueness, acting was about the same, fucking effects might have been better* in Jason X, and at least the entire movie was consistent in being silly shit. At least Jason X didn't try to throw in big serious Revelations that make no sense with a minute of thought when the story itself was already a big enough mess.

    Yeah, know what?
    Jason X was an objectively better or equal film to the majority if not all of Alien Covenant.

    I wish the best for Ridley but god damn man.

    The longer gestation period was a genetically added feature so that the aliens could develop in the time that a host gets to more possible hosts. research your facts. as you know, a single alien will evolve into a Queen if it needs to. problem solved. the rapid life cycle process was a trait of the original indigenous xenomorphs and the protomorph, the Deacon in Prometheus your "blue dolphin". created before Warriors or Big chap, the alien from the original. just corrected your mistake of calling that an innacuracy to the original.
