I had a few reservations going in to _Alien: Covenant_. In my opinion there hasn’t been a truly great entry to the franchise since _Aliens_, so I was worried that the statistics were against it. I thought _Prometheus_ was incredible from a technical standpoint, but not a very engaging movie, and I was worried we might get the same here. The trailers had been mostly good but I was worried I had seen too much of the third act in them, and I was worried this would spoil the experience for me a little.
What I was not worried about was within ten minutes of the damn thing starting I would think to myself: “Wow, this movie is really poorly made.”
Well I guess I’m an idiot because that is exactly what happened. And that feeling never entirely abated over the course of the whole thing.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s no “_AVP: Requiem_”, but I was still very disappointed.
_Final rating:★★ – Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._
**Good robot! Bad robot!**
After some gaps, the ‘Alien’ franchise came alive with the prequel ‘Prometheum’ which originally said to be a spin-off. Particularly, it landed in the hands of the original maker. Now, even the original title back in action. It’s another prequel, hence the prequel series on the making. The next film too will be the same kind, before the overall storyline in the franchise align in a straight line.
I enjoyed it. But not as good as ‘Prometheum’ or the first two ‘Alien’ films. The issue with it was, the same old cliché. There’s nothing in the story. It was like any space film that’s set in a similar fashion. The 80 per cent of the film was what we had seen in the earlier ‘Alien’ films. Just altered scenes with a new cast and a great visuals. So the update makes it the special.
The story focused too much on the robot. The alien parts were reduced. Because it was like the first appearance of the original aliens we saw in the old films. Precisely to say, the origins. Genetic modification, crossbreeding, there comes the beast. From this film what I have learnt was, it was nothing but more or less the same old fear the humans have about that the robots which are the ones going to make humans go extinct. Except here the aliens come between them. Hence, falling prey to the same clichéd theme from any sci-fi that had humanoid.
Nevertheless, well maintained film in its balance coming from previous hits in the series and going forward to bring more hits. This flick would serve as a fine bridge between them. So only 18 years to go between this, from 2104 to 2122. I’m already anticipating the next film. As I have heard, that film would be focused more on the robot. That’s going to be a different experience. Fassbender’s time to have some space adventures.
Still waiting for answers, but mostly left with more questions
Alien: Covenant was a good quintessential Alien movie. If you were looking for answers and an explanation of what happened after Prometheus; only expect, beyond the obvious, a few vague ones. Without revealing any major plot points, if you have watched the Prologues released by Fox, I can say that not much more than what have already been seen there is shown. The brief “add on” to the prologue, stitched into the movie as a flash back, does explain (sorta) exactly what happened after Shaw and David arrived at the Engineer Home World, but only in a very vaguely and briefly, leaving a lot unanswered. Including what happened to Shaw. There is a few tidbits that make it clear she was there, and vague explanation (sorta) of what may have became of her.
I was hoping to leave the theater saying I get it, it all makes sense, and I think you do kinda get that, but not really. Many more questions are left then answers given. Like Chinese food; really good and you eat a lot but, your still hungry and still not fully satisfied when you leave the restaurant. A bit disappointing especially with a run time just over 2 hours. They packed in a lot of what Alien is known for, but it got a bit too esoteric and even a bit boring at times.
We do get to start seeing how the Covenant mission is getting closer in the Alien Cannon time frame to the Nostromo encounter. Also, little tidbits that any fan of the original Alien will pick up on and appreciate. Absolutely go see this movie, but expect to be left hungry and wanting more. 7/10
You’ve GOT to be kidding …
Because of the stupidity of this movie, I threw out my Bluray original copy of Prometheus. Please don’t make another in the series.
