What Is It About?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

Ridley Scott, director of Alien and Blade Runner, returns to the genre he helped define.

With Prometheus, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe.

There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

The discovery of a clue to mankind’s origins on Earth leads a team of explorers to the darkest parts of the universe.

Two brilliant young scientists lead the expedition.

Shaw (Noomi Rapace) hopes that they will meet a race of benevolent, godlike beings who will in some way verify her religious beliefs, while Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green) is out to debunk any spiritual notions.

However, neither the scientists nor their shipmates are prepared for the unimaginable terrors that await them.

The 2017 science fiction horror film Alien: Covenant that was directed by Ridley Scott.

What is it about?

This is how 20th Century Fox describes this movie:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise.

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.

Final Thoughts

This movie was not as bad as my brother GC and I thought that it would be based on some of the reviews that we saw and read about it.

We possibly liked it slightly better than the movie Prometheus, but we are not sure because it has been a while since we saw that movie.

I do know that I like how in the movie Prometheus it felt like they were really on another planet more than it did in this movie, and I liked a few of the characters better in Prometheus.

I think that this movie could have explained some more things and / or been a bit shorter because it dragged a bit in two parts of the movie, but I do respect them for being bold enough to end the film in the way that they did.

Alien: Covenant | Prologue: The Crossing | 20th Century FOX

Recently I saw a video called Alien: Covenant | Prologue: The Crossing | 20th Century FOX on the official 20th Century Fox YouTube channel for the new film called Alien: Covenant.

Like the film Prometheus, this prologue has good visuals, and I hope that the Alien: Covenant film will be better than Prometheus because Prometheus looked good but it was a disappointing film.

I hope that the Alien: Covenant movie will continue where this prologue left off because I am curious to see what happens.
