    Alien Covenant SUCKED! Most of the people in the movie were complete idiots, especially the men. The only competent men were those effeminate androids. Feminist propaganda to the max. The first three original Alien movies with Sigourney Weaver made perfect sense. In the first one she was a "regular women" dealing with an extraordinary situation. She freakin' ran and hid most of the movie until she figured out a way to blow the creature out into space. The second movie, she was still scared but more experienced and confident. The third one, she grew into a complete badass. These new movies make women badasses right out the gate and make men ineffective, wishy-washy idiots. PURE NONSENSE! Two thumbs way down!

    One of the few reviews that I had to dislike. Sorry boys, this movie was just awful. Prometheus was hands down a much better movie than this...flaws and all. This was like watching a 'filler' movie with some scenes that make you go, "OH COOL"...than back to filler scenes. You don't get any attachment to the characters, no back story on most...and when you do, it's only for Walter/David. that's it. Nice seeing cameos from Pierce...but other than that, what was the point of this movie? Angry Joe was spot on for this review.

  • l c

    why does Walter take that human embryo out of the freezer at the beginning of the movie?
    why does David kill the beings that lived on that planet?
    who are the beings that lived on that planet? Engineers or other beings created by the Engineers?
    Why does David want to kill them? we never get a clear motivation for it.
    Why does the ship end up crashed on the side of a mountain?
    why doesn't the crew know that Walter has the capacity to heal himself and doesn't notice the fact that David can't?
    where do the spores come from? if the spores existed before David arrived, there wouldn't be any life on the planet in the first place.
    prometheus knew what it was. Alien:covenant poorly blends the tones of Prometheus and Alien. I really liked Prometheus because I knew from the beginning that it was not an Alien movie. Alien:Covenant is bland and it really takes a while to start rolling. third act is really bad. you know what's going to happen through the trailers. CGI was also surprisingly bad.
    Ridley Scott took a dump on Prometheus and Alien fans at the same time with this movie

    Prometheus, I think was way better than this alien movie. I wish Ridley Scott would've stuck with his gut and finished the story he originally intended. Maybe alien fans would be disappointed because they wanna see guts and gore, but, he would've found a new fan base who appreciate a more philosophical story.

    They should just wipe alien 3 and 4 from history and make the film we all want to see.
    Ripley and newt come back to earth with an Egg and the whole world gets nearly wiped out by the aliens and it sets up the most epic war scifi film ever made!

    Alien Resurrection with the newborn and underwater was so good and prometheus was a fantastic film . I never understand the problems with these peoples . Why they always have to criticise when there's nothing to criticise. Just hicks ripley and newt for alien 5 is a bad idea. Franchise needs to evolve . Cameron's film was a one time thing. And Alien 3 made it perfect having killed newt and hicks . Actually the real fans of the franchise loved Alien 3 and Resurrection and also Prometheus . The people who doesn't like this stuff are not true fans and they truly doesn't never get the alien franchise . They just know shoot'em up alien and most of them just watched the alien and aliens . Cause Alien 3 was boring for them so they didn't watch it. The sad silent atmosphere in ripley' s life is well created in 3 and also a mother child thing in Alien Resurrection . These people just don't have the patience to watch those. They just watch one horror and one action , alien and aliens respectively.

  • Hervaldeezi Mascarponi

    Three days after seeing the movie and I'm like ,"you know I gave that a 8/10,why?" It does not deserve 8,it was "ok" a standard,average,space sci fi shock horror, slasher where people go off on their own and you say to yourself,RIP mate,your dead in 2 minutes", and absolutely no frights or surprises because the 25 trailers revealed all the good parts,man, I am never watching trailers of a movie I want to see again,it ruined the experience.It's VERY average,I will give it 5/10 and +1 for Daniels perky nipples in that tank top near the end, so 6/10.

    You know why you believe they are on a ship ? Because of the Set designs. Not the actors. They believe they are in a ship because they practically are in a ship.

    Seeing too many people whining about this movie but not giving any proper explaination to why. This Movie is like Lord of The Rings. Can you tell the whole story from watching the first Movie ??? No. So shut the fuck up and wait it out. This film is as cool as A L I E N and as flashy as Prometheus. But if you a Fanboy of James Cameron and his Homo Erotic bullshit then save yourself the trip to the cinema. Aliens is now NON CANON BLAHAHAHAHAHA well done Ridley. Keep watching your predator movies lads.

      Xenologist No Alien out of the shadows is also canon , it is the new alien trilogy 2014 novels written in association with fox and two of the novels are dramatised recently on alien day which was April 26 . Audible did that first time an audio drama of the alien franchise also in association with fox. You should listen to it alien out of the shadows audible audio drama not audio book. It tells after ripley adrift in space and convoluted to a planet name lv-178 and she doesn't know but ash was uploaded his own A.I. onto the Narcissus unknowing to Ripley whole time around the nostromo incident. It is canon and is mentioned in the weyland - yutani report. Just listen to the audio drama of out of the shadows and you will be surprised and entertained. And xenopedia mentioned it, but I didn't understand the dog - alien whose derelict was on lv-178 which they are referring not sound like Engineer at all.

    A ”solid movie”? Are you joking?? The first half on hour was dull, nothing notable happens, however the characters are not developing. Like in Prometeus, they act extremely dumb. I literally laughed in some parts. Where was the major twist? David killing Walter was sooo predictable. Where is the answer to the core question: ”Why are we here?”. The only good things about the movie is the CGI and Fassbender. I will rate it with a 6.

  • Brother Elias
    Brother Elias Year ago

    fyi they have answered why the engineers created humanity in both prometheus and the graphic novel prometheus fire and stone. The reason being because they could. the reason the engineers tried to destroy humanity was apparently already unveiled by ridley scott and was as follows, the engineers gave humanity jesus, humanity kills jesus, the engineers decide to kill humanity then the black goo gets released and the engineers mission to destroy humanity is halted.
    This makes sense when you take into consideration that when the prometheus crew find the decapitated engineer, they carbon date it to be 2000 years old.

  • Sam McLatchie

    This is without a doubt the best Alien film since 1986. Fassbender was magnificent as David and Walter. The action was a little choppy at times which made it hard to follow occasionally. Definitely worth checking out!

  • AlexB4455
    AlexB4455 Year ago +2

    In fairness I would have preferred to see a PROMETHEUS SEQUEL. I wanted see more engineers that's what I wanted in both films, never really cared too much about Aliens in THESE films. I feel as if Scott keeps missing the mark as a result of a conflicted vision. It is really annoying, I wish he stuck with Prometheus and not Alien. I waited 6 years for this and I left very angry and annoyed. Also because it leaves you with more questions than answers.

  • thefran901

  • Nathan Smith

    This film was so meh. The best scenes were dumbed down by choppy pace and editing as well as really poor CGI in the mosr effective moments. There were scenes where the CGI was really good but at such bizzare moments. The backburster scene had atrocious CGI that took me out of the movie. Such a generic film that's just simply passable.

  • Andreas vB
    Andreas vB Year ago

    Definitely think it was an entertaining film and a good Alien movie, which is most of what I wanted. And I was OK with the questions (even if unanswered) put out by Prometheus, but the whole Alien origins thing... Did people really wanna know where the Xenomorph came from? I feel like anytime you try to explain the origins of a monster, or anything that's scary really, you've kind of killed the mystery. And the explanation in this movie was just ridiculous imo. But whatever, it was at least entertaining

  • Adam Freedman

    Alien 3 directors cut is pretty good actually.

  • Brandon McLachlan-Fearn

    Just got home from seeing it.. Its out here in New Zealand. Gotta say i was dissapointed, Fassbenders performance was my highlight for sure as well as the white xenomorph. CGI was a little disappointing. If you go in expecting answers for the origins of Humanity in this film universe you wont find them in this film. Kind of frustrating, it feels like Ridley Scott doesn't know where he's going with this franchise. Personally I'd love to see the studio let someone else have a go..

    Overall I like the story, very poetic and it expands the Alien universe as well. On the con side, I wish the film time was longer to give it more time for suspense. A two and a half hours Long sci-fi horror movie of this sort would be ideal for me.

  • Steven Nodlehs
    Steven Nodlehs Year ago +2

    I guess that it's just the old case of fans getting what they wished for -they didn't like Prometheus because it required a scientific mind to care about the subject matter, while at the same requiring a none scientific mind to accept the terrible "science" it contained. This time they want more splat and gore and the fans complain that there's not enough folklore.
    Personally, I'm more interested in the Engineers and the history than the Xenomorph and it's origins - it's been an easy guess which direction Scott and his 79 year old mind was going to take with that. I just wish he listened to his scientific advisers on set a bit more and had chosen to lay out the story fully to the studio rather than a bit by bit strategy based on ticket sales.

    • Lassi Kinnunen
      Lassi Kinnunen Year ago +1

      Are you joking? SCIENTIFIC MIND TO ENJOY PROMETHEUS?? a movie in which none of the character motivations make any sense and every scientist in the movie acts like a total retard and NOBODY of them cares about the fact of finding a spacefaring alien civilization like a scientist would! the movie is ALL splat and visuals.
      seriously prometheus is so bad as scifi.. oh you mean scientific mind like "ancient aliens are real despite missing proof and the theory making zero sense?" ? I mean, with that kind of logical mind set I guess prometheus plot might make some sense.

    • Lord Inquisitor
      Lord Inquisitor Year ago +3

      Care to elaborate on what subject matter from Prometheus required a "scientific mind" to care about? And no, I'm not being sarcastic or trying to be a jerk, I'm legitimately curious. Prometheus wasn't a bad film. As a stand-alone piece set in the ALIEN universe it wasn't bad. But in that move we had scientists that... Well... Didn't really act like scientists. The biologist was dismissive of a potential discover that could explain human origin, a geologist that was surprisingly out of place and looked/acted more like some random punk picked up off the streets rather than an actual geologist, and don't even get me started on Shaw and her boyfriend...
      The story/direction of the film carried a lot of pseudo-religious elements that just seemed out of place for the sort of film it was supposed to be, a sci-fi thriller exploring the origins of mankind while giving us insight to the Space Jockey from the original ALIEN film. And yet it gave us close to nothing in the way of information regarding both topics. We know little of the Engineers other than that they're evidently brilliant bio-engineers with highly advanced technology who likely created us but then wanted to destroy us for... Reasons. And no, I absolutely refuse to accept the scrapped "Alien Jesus" explanation... That was beyond stupid and Ridley Scott was right to scrap that. Anyways, to me the fact that Alien Covenant fails to pick up that thread regarding the Engineers and their seeming hatred of humanity is immensely disappointing. That was pretty much the only thing I wanted to know more about after seeing Prometheus.
