    Awful movie.

    This is just one depressing, badly written movie. If you're looking for any kind of logic, or a hint of common sense, look for another movie. The characters do the dumbest things thru out the movie. Hey, I'm the military leader, and I see the android duplicate do something quite evil (or at least very suspicious), do I warn my outfit, do I shoot him, or try to capture him at least. Nope. I'll just follow him likes he asks me to and then put my head right where he asked me to. What?! A trap?! Who saw that coming?? How about anyone with a brain!!! What type of leader would not IMMEDIATELY warn his troops asap?? This is just one of many examples of the writers lacking a clue as to common sense or strategy. Not one hint hint of clever writing exists in this movie. They just wanted to move the story along, no matter how dumb or implausible the direction they took it was. Sitting thru this movie was just painful and irritating. If you like to see all the good guys get wiped out, mostly thru stupidity, and without a drop of hope, you're in for a treat. If you want to watch a move with a semblance of hope, and intelligent writing, get the original Alien. This movie just plain sucked. One of my least favorite movies of all time.

    Prometheus

    I was passed disappointed the movie is awful in my opinion after having seen Prometheus seems like 20 times and loving the New Direction he went in and all the promises that were made how the movie was going to continue being cold Paradise Etc man of God came to be the movie was rushed how the stuff made no sense like Ellie and turning from a baby into a full grown beast in the matter of minutes so on and on I strongly hope that it will be no continuation in this direction you would have caught that fox would have learned their lesson with Alien 3 but no they did exactly the same screw up not only to change the rating to a weaker one they drop the 3D and they paid for it my very low box office numbers so I strongly suggest not buying this movie Rent It If You must and again she liked Prometheus be prepared to be very very disappointed with this thing when I was watching it at the movie theater there were times that people were laughing

    What the heck did I watch? I bought this movie (in 4K specifically) because I love space movies; and because I thought I would get a better movie than the first (of the newer) one. Wrong! It was much worse. I had hoped Noomi Rapace would continue her journey, but nope; instead we got a rag-tag bunch of bit-player actors...and Michael Fassbender who seemed bored in every scene he was in. On top of that, the move was just a mess from a story line perspective. I disliked the movie so much, I didn't want to review it because it was that dull. But maybe my comments will spare someone else $30+ or less...sigh. NEXT!

    Horrible Alien film

    Ridley Scott new Alien film has a lot of pot-holes in its story line. If we try to link all the Alien films together, Prometheus and Convenient doesn't 100% make any sense. Because in AVP there were already eggs on Earth and not little cylinders from the Alien spacecraft, so how could have David created the egg(s) per say? Also, how did the Alien Spacecraft have the "eggs" on its ship (already) which was found on LV426 by the commercial ship Nostromo? How did David do that with an "alien" pilot at the helm of that ship? Explain that Mr. Scott!

    Terrible movie, scattered plot, lots of fan service shoved in and overall forgettable. Apparently every ship comes with its own pixie haired girl that turns into a gun wielding, alien killer. Movie gets extra terrible points for ruining Wagner by having Michael Fassbender puking up alien embryos at the end to the sound of selections from The Ring opera. You'd be better off pouring salt into your eyes than watching this film.

    Digital copy is not UHD

    Posted

    Movie was decent but the most frustrating part is with 20th Century Fox, I buy an UHD Blu-Ray copy and would expect the digital copy to be the same quality, it is 2017 after all. When I redeem the digital copy on my favorite streaming site of my choice I only get a 1080p version, no 4K, no HDR, no more purchases of 20th Century Fox until this is fixed.

    Painful to Watch

    Wow, this movie is terrible. Alien is a classic. Aliens is fun to watch. All of the movies after that have been progressively worse. Without giving much away, this movie can be summed up by stating that every character, when faced with a decision, makes the most ridiculous choice . . . and ends up dead. But really that is okay since you don't care about the characters anyway.

    Alien: Covenant

    Alien: Covenant feels like a tremendous over-correction of Prometheus. As such, it neither has the moody pseudo-philosophical tone of that movie or the terror and excitement of the original Alien and just ends up falling flat. The cast in generally fine, but there's nothing whatsoever essential about this chapter of the Alien saga.

    The space crew take the stupidest decisions, as if they have no brains. The captain of the spaceship is a moron. The plot gives no chance for suspense or imagination. At the end everyone knows what is going to happen. This movie is a joke to people with common sense.

    Pretty much a sleeper. The story did not even come into focus and pretty much a flop. Don't bother with this one. The effects were soso and just really not a good movie. The promos showed the only marginally interesting scenes. Glade I did not see it in the movies.

    This movie was horrible. My 13 yr old son was so disappointed in this. He loves the Alien trilogy. Nothing compares to the first 1-3. They should have stopped making them a long time ago. Do not spend your money on this. I wish I could return it.

    Moive is great. However giving a poor rating as BB doesnt tell you what the digital copy is. I ended having to return all 3 movies I bought since they dont bother to tell what form the digital copy is.

    Ridley Scott, a name that carried a lot of weight in the science fiction genre, has disappoint yet again with a cheap slasher flick masquerading as a thrilling sci-fi horror film.

    While the visuals and the sound are great, the movie itself is lackluster and leaves a lot to be desired.
