"Scott and the writers have achieved an outstanding balance in Alien: Covenant among numerous different elements: Intelligent speculation and textbook sci-fi presumptions, startlingly inventive action and audience-pleasing old standbys, philosophical considerations and inescapable genre conventions, intense visual splendor and gore at its most grisly. The drama flows gorgeously and, unlike in many other franchises in which entries keep getting longer every time out, this one is served up without an ounce of fat. It provides all the tension and action the mainstream audience could want, along with a good deal more.
Stylistically, the film is a thing of cool beauty, with superb effects and a lovely score. Creatively, it's a major re-set on a level with the series' best."

"A franchise renewed," says their "bottom line."

Interestingly, even the "mixed"-type reviews still seem to have a grudging admiration for it. That being said, I've seen more positive than negative reviews as well. I'm most intrigued by the French press' reviews (two of which have given the film four stars), as their critics seem to have views similar to my own.

I hope the next twelve days go by very quickly...
