Forget the haters. This is a fun movie.

Covenant advances the mythology established by Prometheus but doesn't feel burdened by it.
December 10, 2018
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.
November 13, 2018
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.
October 31, 2018
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.
October 20, 2018
There are flaws aplenty, but also a good action movie and still better than Alien: Resurrection.
October 10, 2018
It's admirable to see a friend getting back to form ... but it's also worrisome to wonder where they will go from here.
October 10, 2018
In all aspects, Alien: Covenant is a glorious insult to the IQ of its audience.
August 30, 2018
Has enough gory Sci-Fi violence and philosophical themes that work enough as both a "Prometheus" sequel and an Alien movie.
August 28, 2018
Alien Covenant has some good notions and some good actors, but it doesn't have the soul of a horror movie or the chops to be mild-expanding sci-fi.
