My thoughts after seeing
After watching the film like most fans I felt disappointed.
The film was going over the same grounds we have seen in Prometheus and other Alien films, since the success of Alien Isolation the computer game – I felt the mystery behind the “Xenomorph” completely done and wanted to find out more about what happened to (Dr Shaw and David) and the mystery behind “Engineers” and their “Home World”
Alien Covenant has left many fans with more “Questions than Answers” the film is a sloppy fan service for those who wanted it to be more about “Xenomorph”.
Like most Alien fans everyone had quiet mixed feelings that David was the creator behind the origin of the Alien species.
Personally – I would rather this remain a mystery or a dark sinister experiment that “Engineers” had probably played around with creation.
Alien Covenant is more about David playing Frankenstein” in his little shop of horrors.
Like Prometheus all the best bits of the film were left out on the cutting room floor, some clips in the marketing videos would of made the film more complete which sold me wanting to watch the film instead we get this train wreck of a feature which I do not like at all.
Also finding the end fate of Dr Shaw was anti-climactic you see she has been Necromorphed by the black pathogen and possibly experimented on by David to create possibly his successors.
However all might get answered in the next 3rd Alien installment in Alien Awakening.
Overall Alien Covenant is a sloppy fan service for those who wanted to see more of the Alien and the Black Pathogen and David’s experiments trying to play god.
As for David you learn that he has one goal in mind that is to destroy not only his creators but their creators as well he seems hell-bent on doing it as we find out during the alteration between him and the other android Walter.
Another theory is that Alien: Covenant was filmed this way deliberately so that FOX and Ridley can gain interest how fans want the film series and the Alien Universe to go in.
If this is true then all might be saved.
Latest update on Alien: Awakening hope this clears up few things with Alien Covenant even Ridley Scott says he lost the plot lol
I hope with Alien Awakening Ridley Scott address these issues I would probably give – Alien Covenant (7 out of 10) it’s not a bad film it has allot to be desired.
Not happy with the film don’t worry watch my Lets Play on Aliens: Colonial Marines Bug Hunt get the Alien fix you missed out on in Alien Covenant. I had blast playing bug hunt.
