Synopsis

The crew members of the spaceship Covenant travel to a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy on a colonization mission. All of the members are couples, who are risking everything to form a new colony on the planet.

Once landed, they discover what seems to be a paradise, with fields of wheat. But when team leader Daniels (Katherine Waterston) notices the extreme silence of the planet, it's unnerving. There are no birds or animals — in fact, there are no signs of life at all. They discover evidence of an earlier doomed expedition. It soon becomes clear that there is something incredibly dangerous to human life on this otherwise beautiful planet.

  • 3 stars "This movie could have been much better but the casting makes it almost unwatchable. Other than Michael Fassbender, who is brilliant and actually saves the movie, the rest of the cast is mediocre to absolutely horrendous. Danny McBride playing the old cliche redneck space jockey complete with cowboy hat is tired and overdone in so many sci-fi movies. Please stick to comedies Danny, you're not cut out for anything else. The lead female, Katherine Waterston, is equally terrible as she whines and sniffles through her dialogue. Wish they could have cloned Sigourney Weaver and brought her in to play this role. Anyway, overlooking the acting, it does give an explanation as to how the Alien came to be and a starting point to the original movie so for that it is worth watching if you are a fan of the series."
  • 4 stars "This was a good movie with an excellent plot and special effects. Unfortunately, Katherine Waterston's acting was exceptionally irritating and marred the entire film with her 'I am going to break down and cry' look that prevailed through out the entire movie. Still , I rated the movie at four stars as it is entertaining."
