When Tennessee gains stable control of the lander, he says over the comms, "A walk in the park," just like Parker said after setting down the Nostromo lander during the storm in Alien (1979). See more »
In the shots of the first Neomorph emerging, Ledward's uniform can be seen covering parts of his lower back and arms, but immediately after the alien exits and Ledward slumps backward, his uniform is not covering him at all. See more »
When Alien Covenant was announced, I was excited. I was really hoping that after a slew of bad and mediocre Alien films that someone would take charge and the franchise would finally see some redemption, especially after the highly loathed, Prometheus. WRONG.
Besides for Avatar: The Last Airbender, I've never wanted to walk out of a film and ask for my money back like I did with this one.
Overall: terrible characters, boring plot, wasted opportunity to move the franchise in a fresh direction, unfulfilling action, lackluster suspense, reused ideas and an even poorer and more uninteresting plot than Prometheus.
I could honestly write for days how much I hated this movie, but you get the point.
After walking out of this movie, I couldn't help but think whatever happened to the Alien film that Neill Blomkamp was meant to direct that was supposed to bring back Ridley and a bunch of original characters. The concept art for that movie alone looks 100x cooler than what this movie threw at us, which was absolute rubbish.
So disappointed. . .
