Was this the sequel or the prequel to Ridley Scott’s Prometheus? Well, I will let you find that out your self…
Alien Covenant was good, very good actually, it still kept that same simpler tone that Prometheus had… more history and a bit more drama rather than lots of action and pure horror. It still wants to tell the story of how it all began and why. However it did have some of the elements from the very first movie.
I enjoyed Covenant a lot, I was sucked into the story from the very beginning, but felt that it still missed something, and I still can’t figure out exactly what it was. Maybe I did miss a bit of that good old horror.
The lead actors where very good though, especially Katherine Waterston and Danny McBride! If you enjoyed Prometheus you will surely enjoy Alien Covenant… I do recommend you watch Prometheus one more time before you go and see this one. You may have forgotten a few things ;)
