    Whoever wrote the screenplay really payed attention in english class! I thought the incorporation of 'Ozymandius' fit perfectly in that scene!
  • Disastrously misguided

    Not only is this a terrible movie in it's own right, it seems to go out of it's way to undermine and weaken the themes and questions in both Prometheus and the greater Alien franchise. It answers questions nobody asked (and the answers are spectacularly riduculous) while failing to explore it's own themes or those introduced in Prometheus. Covenent is, far and away, the worst entry in this franchise to date. Worse than Alien: Resurrection, worse than Alien v Predator, and worse than Alien 3. Not only is not a good movie, it soils the entire franchise.

    Im at a loss to see why this movie was a thing. There was something about it that bored the hell out of me. I'll give it a second try sometime.

    It is a good movie and with a lead bad guy who is not an alien. It is a bit long. It has an ending that is different than the others in this franchise and, while I will no doubt see the third movie in the prequel trilogy when it comes out, but I admit that I would like to eventually see an Alien VII that takes place at the end of the timeline and finally provides closure.
  • Not very interesting

    This was a lazy movie and self evident right from the start. Looks good in a hopelessly dark way but goes in no direction that doesn't seem pre ordained. My big complaint though isn't the art, which is what it has always been, just more tiresome, it's the science. The hardware looks good and the tech looks good and plausible but what group of idiots would set foot on a totally alien landscape without even the tiniest bio hazard precautions. It was like yelling at the screen in an old time movie house and begging the actor not to go into that room or don't open that box but on a monumental level.
  • Not a great standalone movie

    Don't watch this with an expectation that is will be a great self contained movie. It won't be. It is however an excellent addition to the Alien saga and explains a lot in conjunction with Promethius. You'll have to go back to watch Promethius again after watching this movie.
  • Better than Prometheus

    Still a little disappointing but liked it better than the previous movie.
