    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.

    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

    Made creature less scary for me. To me alien creature always presented mother nature´s evil side. Now it is suppose to be made by an android? Plaah! Lame.

    Alien prequels are some weird unholy mix of Star Trek and Aliens. Star Trek was always asking big questions like, where do we come from? What is out there? Even that flute song and idea of android brothers is from Star Trek. For me Aliens was more man vs. nature. I did not need questions of creation or God in my aliens universe. Other than that, movie is well written and made.
    I just wish that the story would have been different. Also that crew in Covenant behaved like morons. Did not really make sense. Who hires a crew like that? Good movie. But I wish it had nothing to do with alien saga.

    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.

    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.

    Well, because of bad reviews. I'm kinda get sad. Most of the community wont give this franchise a chance because of "NOT MUCH XENOMORPHS?! I WANT XENOMORPHS!". Truth to be told.... because of that kind of thinking no Alien Universe movie might come because the producers will just say "nah fuck the story, they just want some xenomorphs. I'll just find a new one story far away from the Alien verse story because most of the people are just complaining, I will just be a producer on just another film"
    So much complains, so sad no one will gonna see the story of how Humans, Xenomorphs, Yautjas(Predators), Engineers and fucking Wayland Industries mixed in that certain event. Ohh. I forgot the Xenomorph civil war where Red Xenomorphs vs Classic Xenomorphs fight in a certain planet.
    Let me mention some things reason we need to support this franchise because there are many more we might want to see being in the movie.

    1. Predator-Human
    2.Alien King (Xenomorph King)
    3. Alien Empresses
    4. Xenomorphs' Queen Mother
    5. Xenomorphs' main Planet
    6. WAY TOO MANY LEAD CHARACTERS( yeah, many because they are all protagonist but scattered in the universe)
    7. Serpent Hunter Predator (The most badass xenomorph hunter)
    8. Scar-face Predator (Serpent Hunter's Rival)
    9.more on Engineer's creations (they didnt make Xenos but just took some DNA and made a bio weapon in form of the goo, David just remastered and recreated original Xenos)
    10. RED XENOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    11. Queen Mother's ELITE XENO GUARDS!!!!!!!!!
    12. THE STORY!!!! FUCKING STORY!!!!
    13. Superman and Xenomorph crossover in a certain part of the galaxy where superman got stuck (there are no sun there)
    14. Batman vs Predator! Hell YEAH!!!!!!!
    15. A fucking Xenomorph protagonist in a certain story (yeah its all about xenomorphs)
