No suspense. No Horror. A permanent stain on the franchise that makesyou feel dirty after having watched it.
I had pretty much no expectations going into this film. I had avoidedmuch of the marketing material beforehand and knew very little about itother than it being a sequel to Prometheus, which I actually thoughtwas a half decent film and a worthy prequel to Alien.
I'm not sure what went wrong with this film, but it is no exaggerationto say it is one of the worst films I've had the misfortune of sittingthrough. There is not one redeeming scene. The story is disjointed andquite frankly a complete mess. The editing is horrendous, the scorecompletely forgettable and the cinematography is weirdly terrible.
Even Michael Fassbender cannot save this awful dirge. The CGI xneomorphwill haunt my dreams for quite some time. Not because it's an imposingand scary alien in this film, but because the CGI is some of the worstyou'll see from a movie this year.
Alien and Alien 2 were as close to cinematic perfection as you're goingto get. Please avoid this dreadful film.

This movie is not worth the money. Its the worst Alien movie i haveseen and i have seen all Alien (xenomorphs) movies.
You don't care about the characters and they are so god damn stupid allthe time! My god its an insult to watch and they flushed all the loredown the drain.
This movie is about droids and not aliens or the engineers. It does notexplain anything at all and it totally kills Prometheus handling.
Im happy Sigourney Weaver did not sign up for this crap.
The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape
