I give this movie IV necronoms out of IV :)

Honestly all the little pieces folks are complaining about, come on, the movie was awesome. Good story, no bad dialogue. I really did care for the important characters, especially the two AI's and the ending is really epic, setting up the story for the next chapter.

Apart from the storytelling the look and feel of the movie was topnotch. Agree that some CGI needed a bit more spit and polish, but it was still very very good. Great score. 

All in all, this is a movie I will be able to watch many many times. In fact will see it again tomorrow.

Phew, I thought I was the only odd ball for truly liking this movie.

I really enjoyed the film, super fun.  Great Sci-fi !  Loved the ending! My only complaint is....  The first guy who gets infected should have smoked some spores when lighting up that cigarette joint! I am left with a whole bunch of Questions, like too many but what I wonder the most is.....  Weyland Yutani aware and involved in these developments?  Are they aware of David's take over of the Covenant?  What a cliff hanger of an ending!  I got the "Blackhole" movie theme ringing in my head for the Covenant Crew.  Is this an ALIEN tie in to Bladerunner are the androids taking over from humans?

No, You're  not alone! I had very high expectations for this movie, maybe to high, but I really liked it. What I really enjoyed was the musicscore. A hybrid between Alien and Prometheus. Classy!

I (apart from others) actually liked the Oram chestbursting scene, with the fully developed "miniprotomorph". I think it looked cool! 

Though leaving many questions unanswered, I am looking forward to the next installation very much and I am keen on where sir Ridley is taking this.

You are not alone. I have a few small gripes about some of the cgi scenes and I wish they would of made it gorier. The backburster was okay needed more pop. The mouth burster needed more pop with a head explosion or something. However, those are small gripes that don't ruin the movie.

I liked it, sure there was some flaws what film hasn't, i totally love how ridley scott uses practical sets and effects and only cg where practical can't be done.

The Ending was most terrifying of it all, being helpless, we will find out in the next installment.

@Ruhaniya, the Covenant prequel novel by Alan Dean Foster should be out in September i think/hope, which should cover the ten year gap between prometheus and AC.

@Ruhaniya

Indeed and hopefully we can get some answers, but i doubt it... and so while it never gave some answers to anything that really had to do with David, Shaw, Engineers, Paradise and only really the Spores, the events of the Covenant Crew and that David created the Xenomorph...

The Beauty with Prometheus and its ambiguous/not covered things but just clues... is it allowed all the debates over the years and so these things in Alien Covenant will allow us to debate as opposed to if it was all Spoon Fed Explained.

Wishing those around the World who finally get to see AC this week a very good weekend

I was kind of 50/50 with it... few flaws, but i also understand why some things had to be bypassed.... but alas we have the ADF Novel to cover those things.

I know i will definitely will be watching this movie many times over. I don't care what the nay sayers are moaning about, I enjoyed it. There is a lot packed into this movie and i feel there is a lot of underappreciation.

Alien: Covenant Movie

Release Date:

May 19th, 2017

Plot Synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
