Alien: Covenant (2017)

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.
