That's the key word here: samey. There's nothing in Alien: Covenant we haven't seen before, and done considerably better.

A so-so entry into the series, Alien: Covenant is enjoyable but fails to deliver the answers we've been waiting five years for and won't get you excited for the release of yet another one of these prequels.

A bit too familiar to either thrill or surprise, despite some nasty little twists. These are scenarios more compellingly explored, and with more iconic characters, in previous chapters.

The familiarity of the setup works against the movie, because we know what's lurking in that suspicious-looking egg and it takes forever to pass each franchise touchstone.

Unfortunately, it starts off like you're getting a sequel to Prometheus.

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

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...

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.

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.

Michael Fassbender is outstanding doing double duty as ideological opposites; the lame stable of human characters, not so much.

Scott has effectively given the fans what they wanted whilst on the surface taunting them with everything they didn't like [about Prometheus].

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.

In all aspects, Alien: Covenant is a glorious insult to the IQ of its audience.
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.
August 28, 2018
... Alien: Covenant feels stuck between making its audience jump in their seats, and trying to stir a debate about our purpose in the universe.
August 21, 2018
Meticulously made and visually gorgeous, Alien: Covenant nevertheless frustrates and confounds, often diminishing character complexity for faux-intellectualism.
June 13, 2018
I'm now a baby step closer to understanding how the alien of Alien came to be, and at this point, I'm really starting not to care.

Covenant on the other hand tries too hard to go back to its origins. It's successful in that all the boxes get checked, and we do get the fun of Fassbender going against Fassbender, but other than that, what's old doesn't necessarily feel new again.
