Alien Covenant Review: Gruesome, Thrilling and All Together Different!
Then film centers on the crew of the Covenant who are tasked to find a new planet for colonization. After the ship is damaged by a freak accident, the crew discover another planet that can possibly sustain life. Once arriving the crew soon discover that things are not as they seems on the peaceful world as two crew members are infected by a spores that create monstrous aliens known as Neomorphs. Things take a darker turn when the crew meet David (Michael Fassbender), who has been stranded on the planet for over ten years, and reveals that there far worst creatures waiting to be released.
Alien: Covenant was a surprising but not in the way that I was expecting. While the movie could lack in its presentation the movie managed to be effective thanks to its plot concepts, decent performances and dark atmosphere. While it may not have had the impact of the likes of Alien or Aliens, Alien: Covenant was a different kind of movie for the franchise, and I for one felt that it was a refreshing installment for the franchise.
