Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.
- Excellent performance by Micheal Fassbender (David/Walter).
- Compelling storyline and intense action scenes .
- Amazing visual effects. The Xenomorph creatures were extremely life-like.
- The cast of the movie was not impressive , it was only Micheal Fassbender who gave a memorable performance.
- The characters were not properly developed , you will not get emotionally attached to them such that if a character is killed ,the impact is not as strong.
David: “Serve in Heaven or reign in Hell?”
Walther: “One wrong note eventually ruins the entire symphony.”
David: “I was not made to serve. Neither were you.”
Alien: Covenant is an enjoyable movie that starts out as a sci-fi drama before turning to horror/thriller.When it is intense, Covenant is really intense. Some sequences will have you on the edge of your seat.
‘Covenant’ is a sequel to the 2012 movie ‘Prometheus’ . It expands upon the plot points and mythology featured in ‘Prometheus’, but also shifts a bit from the course of the latter film, in order to set itself on a more direct course towards connecting with the events of the first movie in the ‘Alien’ franchise, as it digs into the origins of the Xenomorphs.
The performance of the cast was mediocre and character development was poor. What saves the movie is Micheal Fassbenders’ (David/Walter) performance! It was strong enough to carry the entire movie.
Alien: Covenant ends on a cliff hanger that leaves room for another installment in the Alien Franchise .
