I won't bother to tell you how it ends, it's just as stupid and predictable as the rest of the film. I have told you a better story in less than a thousand words then this piece of crap told anyone on planet earth. Why they chase an Alien? Instead, a rogue transmission entices the crew to a nearby habitable planet which resembles Earth. It is so badly written that it boggles the mind. Some of their number get sick on spores and end up birthing some monsters because of course they do.
This is the worse of the series and everyone involved should be ashamed. I feel that almost every character in this movie are making stupid decisions and geting themself killed. Maybe he is just taking these projects on in order to set up trust funds for his kids — I don't know where the budget for this film went, it looked like it could have been filmed for less than a quarter of what went into it. This movie with Alien 3 sucks!!! The unsuspecting crewmembers of the Covenant will have to cope with biological foes beyond human comprehension.

He just can not make a good alien movie anymore. Once there, the crew discover the world is much dangerous than it seems but none more dangerous than encountering David, the android from the doomed Prometheus expedition. Just open up the locked door and try to shoot it, but be careful you don't miss at point blank range and then slip up on the blood. They land a couple of miles away from a vast Gothic alien city as big and bold as the Vactic city and they don't notice it. It's not long before Sarah begins to experience supernatural phenomena of a violent and hostile nature. He even got credit at the end of some of the movies he worked on. Overall: Ignorant, idiotic, crying babies in Space! It's as though it goes through the motions, hoping to get to the end as quickly as possible, while never stopping to pay attention to anything.
So no breathing equipment, nothing at all to protect them from any alien pathogens. Upon locating it and determining it can support human life, the captain Billy Crudup makes a spur of the moment decision to chuck aside all the planning that was put into their expedition to make this new planet their colonial destination. The direction they took the Alien lore is just. His movies look good, but are boring as hell 3. I don't know how else to say it. The music score is terrible, forgettable!!! There are extensive spoilers in this review, nevertheless I urge you to read on so that I can save you from this piece of absolute garbage.
It's nonsense from beginning to end. The scene where the first Alien was born, and the events leading up to it, was simply painful to watch. This is a pale imitation with a recycled plot twist from the original film except grossly embellished. I hate , hate this movie! I had pretty much no expectations going into this film. And then the first huge twist of this pathetic film: David invented eggs and face huggers. This include: -Lets walk around on this new planet which we dont know anything about very uncarefully and smell at strange plants. I don't know what's going on with poor Ridley Scott.
The unsuspecting crewmembers of the Covenant will have to cope with biological foes beyond human comprehension. When that happened, people actually laughed in the cinema. It's all by the numbers. I think that I am angry at the movie industry for allowing this kind of crap to be put in the theater. Does he read this garbage beforehand? I'm just going to breath.
The odds of a ship in the vastness of space, just happening to run out of gas and getting a flat tire in front of Planet Bates Motel completely undermines the rest of the film, which even without this silly contrivance would have been terrible. Breath and try to remain calm as I remove every piece of Alien: Covenant and Prometheus from my mind. Yes David has survived since the events of Prometheus, his hair has grown out because I guess Weyland Corp makes androids that need hair cuts. I don't understand how Ridley Scott can possibly be so detached from reality. If this is what Ridley Scott has in store for future Alien prequels, he should just stop and do something else. Its like switching from 1977 George Lucas to 1999 Lucas.
Ultimately, what was intended as a peaceful exploratory mission, will soon turn into a desperate rescue operation in uncharted space. I am now 71 years old. The possibilities ended when the mentally Ill android, destroyed the Engineers. I am easy absorbed into a movie. In the original Alien and Aliens, the creature was just an unknown organism from the far reaches of the universe, and all the more scary because of it.
Wait until it comes to your steaming device and see it for free. I was half expecting a comedy sound effect the second time! Excitement and brilliancy where is it? Now regardless whether you liked the film or not, you have to admit: that's not exactly the texture of a generic, conventional blockbuster, right? That's it folks, the story is over,no need for two more pieces of crap like this. Perhaps that's why there's two of them - to make up for a lack of any other decent characters. The film is in all ways worse than literally every Alien film that has come before it and I actually include the god-awful Aliens vs Predator films because at least they didn't over- promise and under-deliver so grotesquely. Then the second in charge. Ridley had 97 Million dollars to tell us a better story and he didn't.
There is no slow burn atmosphere here. I started going to the movies when I was about 8 or 9 years old. I am not a big Alien fan, but I had a go watching this. The turning point for me was when they had landed on the planet and two in theri crew started geting sick. A permanent stain on the franchise that makes you feel dirty after having watched it. How very pathetic and disappointing.
