    What a pre-canned video. A lot of that footage is from the covenant promo material, and this is just the IGN preview re-cut.

    While I haven't seen all of the comments, all I have seen so for is how everybody seems to overlook Weyland Co. Weyland Yutany and later in the series Earth's Government's collective intelligence and in every film in the series no one sees "The Company's" motives until its too late. In Alien Covenant Weyland Yutani's involment in the events of AC aren't all that clear until the end when David demonstrates that he still has Company over clearance over Mother on the Covenant. He also Walter's clearances and the idea of David could have somehow taken those clearances from Walter in the final unseen conflict of the two is far fetched for the lack of time in the scene to do so. I surmised that Walter was created in the image of David with his own protocols for the purpose of extracting David and his creations off of Planet 4 in the first place. While we can see that David now has a mind of his own we can't negate the fact the he is a Company Android with programming the he cannot override by virtue of his own will.
    1)The Company records everything that happens on every mission that they deploy so everything that happened on the Prometheus mission up until the destruction of the ship Prometheus was recorded and sent back to the Company and it only would have taken one year for the Company to receive the full transmission. The final transmission of the Prometheus mission sent by Dr. Elizabeth Shaw however was not sent by any company technology being that the ship Prometheus was totally destroyed. So how did Dr. Shaw send her final transmission? Obviously from the Hammerhead ship the She and David commandeered at the end of Prometheus. Ergo Engineer technology is not flawed, if anything Engineer technology is way more advance than that of Humans. Engineers technology we learn in Prometheus is not beyond David's understanding as we can see how quickly David is able to understand and operate them. So we can presume that David just like Shaw is capable of communicating with the Company on Earth by way of Engineers technology.
    2) The Covenant mission was a rouse from the beginning. If David can maintain communication with the Company and tell them about his pet project than it is a safe bet that like always the Company wants that life form for means to study it and use it for bio-weapons.
    3) The path to Origae 6 led the the Covenant to directly intersect with Planet 4 with an unexplained event that haults them at threshold of Planet 4. Now if Planet 4 is a more habitable Planet than Origae 6 that was closer to Earth and on the path to Origae 6 the Company knew about and kept that knowledge off of there records, Especially if they have communication with David about his Project on Planet 4, a project they they would ruthlessly do anything to attain. "Building better Worlds" may be Weyland Co's public slogan but we all know that "Crew Expendable" has always been their secret motto.
    4) The Nutrino blast was not a random natural occurance. The Covenant's new Captain wanted to investigate the the blast but Walter convinced him that it was a natural blast that could not have been forseen or avoided and so the Captain let it go and continued on. Nobody is aware of the Engineers or the very power of their advanced technologies here so it not without reason that their technology can simulate a Nutrino blast that only mames The Covenant ship, haulting it and only bringing its system down by 30%. Again David know much to well how to use that technology and probably saw the Covenant ship coming as he was expecting it to come.
    5) The plan from the start was for David to continue his research and The Company gave him more than precisely what he needed to do that. 2,000 sleeping colonists, hundreds of human ebrios, an infirior twin android and a still very active security clearance with company protocols. David demonstrated at the end of the film that his own security clearance with Mother is just the same if not higher than Walter's and when he does use Walter security clearance it is only to assume his identity as Walter by means of making transmissions to make everything seem as if everything is okay. Walter explained to David that people back on Earth knew about some of the grim activities on the Prometheus mission and David's involvement in all that. There were a certain amount of people who were afraid what David is capable of and so the corrected those issues in the later model Davids. Mind you, by the time this conversation between the two happens David had already cut his hair to look exactly like Walter, waiting for the opportunity to remove him and covertly take his place but David needed to know what exactly Walter looked like and how he behaved in order to put up a convincing act which is why David interacted and toyed with Walter for a while before he ultimately put him down and took his place.
    The only questions that remains on my mind is... "Is there really an Origae 6? And why if David is proven to be a dangerous robot would he maintain clearance with the company if not to further their agenda by helping David with his own?

    I don't know what is so hard to understand about the aliens timeline. To better understand watch it in chronological order. Alien Prometheus, Alien Covenant, Alien, Alien 2, Alien 3, Alien Resurrection. Ridely Scott pretty much brought it to a satisfing end unlike the prequels which just doesn do the older movies justice. The first Alien movie is the best period end discussion.

  • EzekielExtrensic
    EzekielExtrensic 25 дней назад

    You gave it a 7.3 which i believe is about right but I believe you left out something very important. In a horror thriller things normally keep going wrong to keep the story moving but I rarely see such weak writing on that part. Through this movie the crew had several forks in the road were they could have stopped these events from happening but from just simply stupidity these people make it so much worse. You could pretty much have put this in the Fallout universe and said this movie was a Vault tech experiment. Where in they found the stupidest crew ever to watch over 2000 colonists to see how these morons mess up. I really do believe even without the Alien the crew would have ended up killing themselves and everyone on the ship.

    Alien: Covenant. Feels like a recycled version of Alien/ Prometheus. We've already seen those movies, and it feels like we are just watching the same story over and over again. You see pretty much everything coming, no surprises at all, really. I give it a 4.5/ 10. And a 4.5 is probably too high.

    Hello everyone! I review films and books that I feel are underrated and go a little under the radar. Despite Alien covenant being a huge success financially, it is seen as a strong instalment in the franchise but not much else by most. I feel it is as strong and possibly one day as iconic as the first two alien films. If you are interested in quite a different take on this movie then please take a look at my channel and tell me what you think.

    He says" "Scott heard the screams of alien fans leaving the theatre" and proceeds to tear Prometheus apart, but then says that this movie builds off of the Alien mythology...

    ...Which wouldn't exist if Prometheus didn't set it up.

    What a dumb review.

    After growing up with Sigourney's stint of Alien films (which isnt to say they werent some of my favorite films) its super refreshing to see the Alien universe being developed beyond simply dumping a xeno in a new locale for each installment. And while theres a pretty big demographic thats miffed that Predators are seemingly slashed from this narrative, Im glad. Predators dont add anything to the Giger-esque currents of these films and the AvP series has never been canon - quite the opposite, really, as Scott hates them being muddled together. Keep the Engineers, androids, and horror bugs coming and Im happy.

    I enjoyed Prometheus. But some of the writing was just so bad. They both have some serious flaws regarding exposing oneself to an alien planet atmosphere. But Covenant was so much more interesting and thought provoking. I enjoyed the homage to Blade Runner and the subtle reference to Lawrence of Arabia. Spoilers! Yes, it was predictable that David would mimic Walter. They showed the knife while they were fighting and never resolved it . Loved seeing the engineer city bombed...

    Ridley is great at visuals, far more often and consistently than he is with good story.
    And making another $200M movie based upon fan disappointment is the worst kind of fan service.

  • utah wanderlust700

    I think it would have made the xenomorphs scarier if they were natural, evolved creatures from some backwater planet that Ripley hoped mankind would never find. The engineers stumbled upon the planet and tried to harvest them for weapons, but managed to eradicate themselves instead. Then fast forward a couple hundred years after Aliens, and we finally do find the xenomorphs home planet, and the question is, do they survive, or do we?
    This engineer/people/black goo/parasitic mutation direction is just not as scary, nor is it interesting. Its basically just a modern Frankenstein twist of a lab experiment gone wrong. A naturally occuring monster from the black silence of space is WAY more frightening. And it's even possible that it could actually happen sometime in the future. We find a way to travel to the closest planet only to find something we wish we'd never found!

    I saw it last night, it was like they took the ideas proposed in Prometheus, and then force fed them through the alien formula in the original. There are things to like about the movie, but from a fanboy perspective this is nothing more than an average thriller movie based around the Alien franchise. Nothing special, my rating is more like 6/10. My main criticism of the movie is that it is full of cliche and ideas that we have already seen played out in this franchise. Very unoriginal storytelling, but good acting, action, and worth watching for fans of this kind of thing.

    I must have watched a different movie as I was bored from the opening scene and did not recover from the cliches that followed. When are directors going to treat us to not using the old I-am-ust-going- off-on-my-own-for-a-wander-even-though-there-is-a-killer-alien-picking-off-my-mates trope? Duh. As for deepening the mystery from Prometheus, It was poorly explained (really just thrown away) because this film was clearly just a filler for the next one. Ridley Scott did a good job on Prometheus but I feel he dropped the ball big time on Covenant. Save yourself the ticket price and rewatch Aliens instead.

    After Aliens (1979), Covenant was very likely the "scarier" of the Alien movies that followed. Still, it does not compare, or deserve to be compared to the original movie, which is one the best horror movies ever made. "Alien" sits with "Jaws", while Covenant sits with "Deep Blue Sea" (harsh, but i needed a "shark" movie). Not a bad movie, good seeing a xenomorph again, been 10 years since we saw one. Hugs!!

    I saw this movie yesterday. it was enjoyable overall but ultimately underwhelmed me.. SPOILERALERT
    - Another GREAT michael fassbender as the android(s) and is by far the best character and best point of the movie
    - some great visuals
    - lore deepening
    - some truly gory scenes
    - overall design of engineer planet, lore
    - ending
    cons :
    - truly dissapointing characters. all cliche, all underwritten. i didnt care for any of them except david which is saying much
    - Elizabeth shaw and david prometheus plot outcome ( she is not a second alive in this movie although trailers showed otherwise!) how totally dissapointing, especially after all the buildup in prometheus.
    - Xenomorph origin reveal
    - Too much cgi aliens, no mystery left anymore..

    Hate to say that this had alot of potential for engineer backstory, yet gave us another "deserted planet survival" and no, not a single living engineer scene..

    The 7.3 rating is inaccurate. This is an 8.2 minimum, for cynics. I was so impressed that I'd give it an 8.7, compared to the previous effort, which I would rate as 6.0 at best.

    Covenant is a Great movie, and rekindled my love of the story. Go see it on the big screen. I was delighted, except for having to wait an hour to see the Alien(s)?

      they're the crew, not normal colonists passengers. they have jobs that relate to operating the ship and running the operation. 2000 people are in cryo-sleep, while a few crew members are woken up early to do maintenance on the ship. The reason the crew is couples as well is because it's a one way trip, so the people who sign up, even the crew, plan to start some sort of family.
