Alien: Covenant (2017)
Worth it? Yes, but it isn’t the best of the franchise.
Not the best ,not the worst, wasn’t bad at all.
First let me be blunt and explain that I like Alien movies in general. It is true since Aliens, the franchise isn’t as good, but I still like the idea and the series.
I came into the movie with a low expectation, and it probably helped me with the movie experience. I haven’t seen a “good” alien movie in a long time so I thought this would suck. It didn’t, I enjoyed chunks of it. The chunks that were actually Alien.
The acting itself was decent, the filming was good and not nearly as dark as I was worried about. I will try not to reveal too many spoilers, but the down part for me was when they ended up interacting with the Prometheus storyline. It really is Prometheus 2: Alien Covenant.
I really feel if they had avoided the interaction with Prometheus, this movie would have been good, as it is, it is still decent, if you just ignoring the androids (although I like Walter, Walter was pretty cool). Sadly I can’t go into anymore because of spoilers, suffice to say it didn’t suck too badly.
The good: It is an Alien movie, this means all the good of other Alien movies.
The bad: Dear god stop with anything Prometheus please!
I will probably see more, I might be hesitant now but we all know how I am.
