Alien Covenant is a cover version, no two ways about it, it's a retread of what was showcased in 1979, only with the tie-in to Prometheus and a continuation to the origins of Xenomorph and pals. I love James Cameron's masterpiece Aliens that is one of the best action films ever!!!! Crew 15 - Colonists 2000 - Embryos 1140. I had avoidedmuch of the marketing material beforehand and knew very little about itother than it being a sequel to Prometheus, which I actually thoughtwas a half decent film and a worthy prequel to Alien. Only Walter the Android Michael Fassbender is awake, until it's time for the crew to be abruptly awakened from their hyper sleep. Instead, a rogue transmission will entice the crew to a nearby habitable small planet which resembles The Earth. There is not one redeeming scene.
As you might have anticipated from my lackluster storyline summary above alien Covenant starts in an exceedingly generic way. Things get so dense that I was taken from the movie completely, as the final performance draws to a close. I watched Aliens and thought that was great, it took the story to a new level, brilliant sequel. Why did they had to land on some distant planet? Nevertheless, well maintained film in its balance coming from previous hits in the series and going forward to bring more hits. I would be surprised if he makes a new alien movie with similar tone to the older ones. It is a lot better than first meets the eye.
They are headed on a colonial mission to another planet before an electric shock takes out the ship, the Captain, and 47 other members. He of course has abandoned this second movie, leaving it in the hands of the far more capable John Logan, but even he struggles to find meaning here, or escape the clichés that have started to grow like a Xenomorph in John Hurt's stomach. Precisely to say, the origins. This film knows it all. Alien 3 was fine, Prometheus I thought could really go either way depending on the sequels, and Alien 4 of course was garbage.
I hate , hate this movie! You don't care about the characters and they are so god damn stupid allthe time! The aliens, when you can see them, are cool, but there is a lot of downtime between them, and a few quality kills does not a 200 million dollar mega blockbuster make. Acting,now, is like working at McDonald's was when I was growing up. The ones who just go tramping through the woods of an unknown planet or show the decision making skills of the Trump administration. The crew learns through some form of transmission of a remote planet. A small alien creature bursts from their chest and one of the men dies is infirmity and a girl leaves her colleague locked in a room with chestburster really selfish. It gets to a stage where there no surprise left while the story is fairly predictable throughout.
His motivations and whether he considers himself human or God is constantly in question and Fassbender's soft-spoken performance continues to haunt. . Particularly, it landed in the hands of the original maker. Same time there, they meet david Michael Fassbender , the manufactured survivor of the bound Prometheus endeavor. If you have not paid to see it, don't pay to see it. The movie fails been at good it fails.
So the update makes it the special. It's true that they throw lots of probably too many elements into this movie, which might turn out to be less exciting. Not without flaws of course, but a very tidy science fiction piece it be. It is where excitement and all the suspense lies. There was no facehugger, chestburster or an Alien species in this movie at all.
The biggest problem here is that it feels so redundant. So only 18 years to go between this, from 2104 to 2122. The film stars Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez, Billy Crudup, Alexander England, Benjamin Rigby. Log cabin on the lake. I hate the ending I hate it so much!!!!!! For such an authoritative, superior and intelligent film - I find it odd that every character stumbles around like a simple minded cretin making unwise decision after unwise decision.
Early on in the movie, something happens which in yield results in Oram becoming the captain of the Covenant. Enthusiasts of Alien will soon be overjoyed and that I have to acknowledge that this scene is just one of the best of the whole movie. I'm so tired of most of these others. I am angry because Riddley Scott promised so much more. It takes multiple watches to pick up on it all. This movie is about droids and not aliens or the engineers.
Everything about this movie is forgettable half of the movie I fall a sleep. I'm guessing because I wasn't expecting it to be particularly cerebral. Even Michael Fassbender cannot save this awful dirge. My biggest issue apart from the utter predictability and nonsensical,inept script,was the disappointment of seeing 'Prometheus' mixed up with 'Alien' Alien covenant gets locked up in its own self importance while forgetting why we loved 'Alien' in the first place. You understand what happens next for those who have seen, the first movies. A sequel to the 2012 film Prometheus, the film is the second installment in the Alien prequel series and the sixth installment overall in the Alien film series, as well as the third directed by Scott. This movie with Alien 3 sucks!!! That's where they find what continues to be the best character in these prequels; Michael Fassbender's David the Android.
Look, now we have a new franchise directed by Ridley Scott himself, which is some what relates to the alien franchise. What makes reviewing the movie even more demanding is trying to not give away any of the story element because I know before reading about theories fans of this franchise wish to see the picture for themselves and what precisely occurs. It sucks the cast is unlikable. It was like any space film that's set in a similar fashion. There is so much money involved in movie making that with a few classes, young people can make a living in the movie industry.
