Storyline Heading
Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the synthetic David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Sci-Fi Thriller - This sequel to 2012's Prometheus is a more direct prequel to the long-running science fiction horror/action Alien series, so fans of that series should be more pleased with this film. Michael Fassbender is the only returning cast member from the 2012 film, with the most prominent new members of the cast being Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, and Danny McBride; James Franco has only a very brief cameo. As with other films in the franchise, there is constant language and graphic violence involving alien creatures, and there is also some sexual content this time, so this is definitely not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Alien: Covenant has enough of what made Alien great to deliver two hours of big-budget sci-fi/horror entertainment but it also cements the realization that, as good as the series may have been at its start, it's not likely ever to reach that level again.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent I Ioved this movie so much that its flaws...barely registered for me. "Covenant” has its own personality and rhythm, a remarkable achievement on its own considering how many "Alien” films have been made over almost four decades.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Covenant does succeed in continuing Prometheus' ambition to deepen the Alien mythology with a meaning-of-life bent. Carnage may always be at the heart of this series, but Fassbender more than does his part to give it soul.

NY Post Full Review
Good ...a shivery return to old-school space horror... Clearly, the elder Scott's aim is on the scares — and oh, what satisfying, terrifying, screams-echoing-down-a-ship's-corridor scares they are. All the philosophical debate here belongs to the robots — which is possibly even more chilling.
