    The crew of the Covenant violated protocol there a lot. They turned aside from their primary mission with a precious cargo; they went en masse without protection gear into the environment of an unknown planet. They never paired up to investigate or search. They jeopardized the ship over and over again. They violated quarantine coming back on board the ship. All because one of the crew liked John Denver.

    The part that was stupid was the white lady locking the black chick in the room with the dude when it comes out of homies back then opens it when after it starts attacking her. Nd that nobody started firing at the aliens when they first came out, killing one of theirs. Lol

    dumbest scientists ever... they're not really scientist its always like one incredibly street stupid scientist or insert other fancy title and a bunch of stereo typical hobos fresh of the street. its frustrating to watch. its like, you're gonna trust the lives of +3k people to these idiots, ok but i'm sure there are better ways to kill yourself.

    I think the best option for the franchise now, is to go as low budget as possble. Horror movies make a TON of money, because they get made on incredibly low budgets of 10 to 15 million when compared to covenants 150+ million. The genre is too niche for budgets that high. No more spanning vistas or giant set pieces, as gorgeous as they are. My proposed idea If they were to do a Covenant sequel would be to keep the movie ON the Covenant, just like the original spent almost the entire movie on one ship. Hear me out. The ship is relatively large, it has 2000 colonists on it, a rogue synthetic and at least 2 aliens. We saw during covenant that the Alien was somewhat disobedient when it tried to attack David through the monitor, so have something go wrong during one of his experiments and have the two (or possibly more) aliens break free and cause havoc. A handful of the colonists wake up somehow, the Aliens are on the loose stalking the vents and hallways and David is among the colonists trying to be Walter and remain hidden until he becomes a protagonist at the end. It's contained, it's claustrophobic, It's dark, it's scary, it's Alien.

    quite disappointing for should have been called "android-convenant featuring an alien at the very end". seriously they spend mode than half of the movie with those fuckign android, and right at the very end we finally see the alien and it lasts very few scenes

  • prathik
    prathik 11 months ago

    the problem with this movie is
    1)it's terrible things like creatures busting out of human
    2)the crew has no common sense and seems to have low iq with daniels and a.i member of the crew being the only smart ones
    3)people still using regular guns in distant future, which really doesn't make sense.
    4)this feels a bit rushed
    5)bad cgi
    besides this i had no problem with the movie. i think the directing was done very well, but the plot was bad

    it's an horrible movie, it contradicts both the original alien movies and prometheus. they didn't give a shit about the story and continuity, and they dropped the plot set up by prometheus.

  • Coleman Hoyt

    I thought this movie was OK when I saw it in theaters, but the more I think about it, the more it disappoints me. The movie just wasn't scary, because we got extended close up shots of the aliens. That drained them of the intrigue and vagueness that made them so menacing in the original film. The gory scenes were cool, but they don't make a movie terrifying by themselves. You need suspense, too. Ridley Scott shouldn't have listened to his fans so much. He should have made the film he really wanted to make, which I think was a Prometheus sequel.
    Prometheus didn't really have scares either, but I really liked it because I understood that it wasn't meant to be a horror movie. Alien: Covenant, on the other hand, tried to be scary but settled for gore and fan service in the end. I agree with Jeremy's review mostly. The film is beautifully shot and well acted. The plot is decent. I'm not that mad that the characters made stupid decisions, because the Alien universe is not meant to be purely realistic and logical, but a sexually fueled nightmare world where the worst thing is the thing that always happens. My problem is that Scott seems to have lost touch with what made Alien such an effective horror film. 6/10

  • UltimateBargains
    UltimateBargains Year ago

    This movie is just Ridley Scott flipping the bird at the fanbase. It is a remake of the Aliens movie. People go down to investigate the planet, they start dying from the horrible bugs, their vehicle is destroyed by a bug, they discover too late that there is a traitor in their midst, a few make it back to the main ship, some of them get killed by a stowaway bug, and the heroes are put into hypersleep while an enemy is still present on the ship. And the story arc completely ignores the fact that the Alien, the facehugger, and the queen that we all know and love, already existed for hundreds or thousands of years before the movie.

    No way about it, Covenant is pretty bad. Laws of physics utterly disregarded, even the other older films at least didn't just 'fly down easily' to the ground. But in this we see a shuttle come down through an oxygen rich atmosphere, doesn't even get warm. No suits. "Do we have a quarantine issue" - fks sake, you had one when you opened the space shuttle door.
    This one is more old-school star-trek. Spaceships with levers like an '80s 747 and switches like a 'nam helicopter. And AR15 based guns???!!! Almost as bad as petrol powered go-carts in Promethius. What a let down. Another cool movie storyline destroyed by a crap film.

    Prometheus and aliens covenant are great if you watch them back to back the main thing that was just stupid in covenant is when the captain after already being told they need living things to be born he goes with Walter right after lol most the people are dumb but that was extra stupid

    To answer your question , The Thing ( John Carpenters) just saw this new Alien movie. It was entertaining but the wasted potential was astounding!!! Could've been as good as the original but they took a lazy route and made a "good" movie rather then a great one

    Just watched this movie, really fell short of expectations. Prometheus was way better. Too many plot holes ruined it for me. The biggest being Walter could heal his wounds, like that neck puncture from the flute, yet the surviving crew didn't notice David's inability to heal the scar on his face. When they escaped from the temple, the first thing they should've done was confirm if it was David or Walter.

    the Movie SUCKED...believe me, dont bother paying money for it. The Woman who dragged the first victim on the ship to sickbay, and the other woman who ditched her ..both sucked at acting, one screaming and incoherant..the best thing that happened was they got killed. as for as the robots? give me a break..Riddley Scott worked on this one? these review guys on this? cut down on the Weed...

    Alien, Aliens: characters are smart, script is smart, people die because space and xenomorphs are dangerous
    Prometheus, Covenant: characters are stupid, script is stupid, people die because they are incompetent and unprofessional
    David is right, people are too stupid to deserve to live, certainly in this cinematic universe.

  • Mascot

    I'm usually fairly in tune with Jeremy, but.... Dear gods, this movie was utter shite. I'm not sure how to rate it in relation to Prometheus (which I gave a 4/10), but I'm fluctuating between -1 and +1 and can't quite make up my mind. I suppose I'll likely end up giving it the same score.
    Ridley Scott is an odd one. He made two _brilliant_ movies, and that was it. Sure, he's had the odd "ok, that wasn't too bad" moments, but the only ones really worth mentioning were Alien and Blade Runner. That was 1979 and 1982, folks. He blew his wad early on; if only he had kept it up.
    Edit: I forgot to mention, there were four seconds really worth watching, split into two-second scenes. They both occur in the later stages of the movie, one is a reference to Blade Runner, the other to Alien. I liked those, gratuitous as they were.

    Movie was a 6/10.
    Prometheus was 7/10.
    The only thing that was better was more aliens shown.
    Didn't like how only one alien came at them at a time and we saw no mother alien. The crew was lame once again. Basically a remake of Prometheus lmao. Focusing on the perspective on a sad short hair girl and the robot just like Prometheus. Felt nothing for any of the crew members. It's like their mission was to die and that's it. The ship having difficulty landing because of storms just like Prometheus. Lame lame lame stuff. A lot of cliche. Hardly any good decent scenes. No satisfying ending once again. Leaves you with even more questions. Same old shit.
