01:31Alien: Covenant - Trailerposted on May 9, 2017A visual spectacle, “Alien: Covenant” will bring the audience to an immersive world where humans have nowhere to run and hide from the monstrous creatures who wreak of nothing but carnage.
Poorly written and thought-out storyline. It will be an enjoyable watch if you like being surprised and perhaps scared too. Nevertheless the supposedly 4 star rating I wanted to give it is reduced to 1 star due to the unacceptable weak points that ultimately ruin the experience.
It's not necessarily the best Alien movie in the entire franchise but it sure is a major improvement over Prometheus. Also it is very clear that director Ridley Scott and his team responded nicely to all the complaints about Prometheus. Compared to the 1979 original Alien, Alien: Covenant has a faster pace and a confident approach to mixing spectacle with suspense and character development. Also the two major action sequences leading to the ending are very thrilling.
