Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: As redesigns go, Alien: Covenant is not ambitious, but it's roaringly, repulsively effective.
Rotten: Yet director Ridley Scott -- who birthed the original nearly 40 years ago as well as that last film -- plunges back into the latter's mythology, with equally uninspired and perhaps more blatantly derivative results.
Fresh: A shamelessly high-minded, Byron-and-Shelley-quoting existential inquiry into the origin of three species and the nature of belief that goes slumming in genre territory just enough to get itself greenlit.
Fresh: Peel away the big budget genre film's veneer of Western Civ for Dummies (Michelangelo, Wagner, Byron and Shelley) and what you have is rather conventional Lego blocks of sci-fi horror.
Not very brave formula movie that could have been.
Great effects, furthers the prequil franchise but suffers tremendously from the irrational behavior and unbelievability in the script. It leaves one to wornder if this saw a real test audience or even better the story itself was read by anyone but the production team. It is: here is your story, here are your sterotype idiots, now pay me. Could be the last one for awhile. Sad. Had been looking forward to it.
Best Alien Prequel Yet!
What can I say more? Another great Alien film from director Ridley Scott!
My name is Jozeph Reyes and I approve this movie 100%👍🏼
