Prometheus and Alien: Covenant are like a Star Trek universe composed of nothing but red shirts.

While Covenant has its flaws, it seems to be a worthwhile step forward, albeit one that perhaps doesn't travel as far as one might hope.

Unlike Prometheus, which I found I enjoyed a lot more than the general consensus, this was as bad if not worse than its reputation. Let's just leave Alien alone for a while...

If there's one thing scarier than a human with a god complex it's an android with a god complex. This is a film heady with religion; the irony is that space travel relies on science and rationality yet what are colonists doing but creating new worlds?

La relación entre un dios y sus creaciones vuelve a ser el hilo conductor de la trama, pero la película no añade mucho a ese concepto o al menos algo diferente a lo que ya se vio en Prometeo.

Forget the haters. This is a fun movie.

Covenant advances the mythology established by Prometheus but doesn't feel burdened by it.

Alien: Covenant works best as a series instalment reflecting on itself, reforming old ideas, reshaping old concepts and tropes. But as a messy, sometimes rather silly film, its reach very much exceeds its grasp...

Prometheus is David; Alien: Covenant is Walter ... The latter, in an attempt to "improve" upon its predecessor, essentially trades in its creative ambition for stodginess and familiarity.

Scott... ultimately commit[s] the sin of retracing his own steps, recreating Alien sans the claustrophobia, the mystery of the creature, or the deep investment we had in the characters from the first film.
November 11, 2018
Scott has finally built on the promise of an Alien prequel and delivered something delightfully odd, joyously gory and troublingly pessimistic. It may doom the entire franchise, but viewed as a self contained work, its ambition pays off.

Scott knows this world so well that it's almost like watching a conductor of an orchestra at work -- delicately building the tempo before the big finale.
November 2, 2018
Moving past those issues, Alien: Covenant still brings a lot of excitement and new mythology to add to the Alien franchise.
November 2, 2018
Michael Fassbender is outstanding doing double duty as ideological opposites; the lame stable of human characters, not so much.

Alien: Covenant shows how the hiring of LGBTQ talent into major creative roles can spur interesting perspectives.

Scott has effectively given the fans what they wanted whilst on the surface taunting them with everything they didn't like [about Prometheus].
October 31, 2018
An enjoyable but hollow film that lacks inspiration and exists solely to set up the next installment.
October 31, 2018
Those nervous about Covenant following Prometheus can breathe a big sigh of relief because this is a captivating entry in the Alien saga that builds upon the series' mythology while delivering plenty of terrifying moments along the way.
October 31, 2018
What this latest entry makes clear is that even in the hands of the man who first brought it to the screen, there's nothing left for the Alien franchise to say.
October 30, 2018
Instead of exploring strange, horrifying new worlds, Scott seems intent on revisiting the past.
