    An Excellent Alien Film

    It really baffles me how much negativity some Alien fans express towards this film. To me, Alien: Covenant is one of my favorite films of the year and ranks in my top 3 Alien films of all time. It's the best film in the franchise since James Cameron's Aliens in 1986. I really enjoyed Prometheus and the more philosophical themes it explored along with the Engineers so I was really happy to see director Ridley Scott return to the Alien franchise again with Covenant. To me, Covenant is the perfect blend between, Prometheus, the original Alien, and Aliens while also feeling like a modern film and giving us the best-looking alien creature designs and scenes yet. I feel that those who disliked it just wanted a straight-up rehash of Aliens and never even gave this movie a chance based on its own merits. If you look back at the originals, they were much more straight-forward survival stories. Covenant, on the other hand, is much more ambitious in the story it is trying to tell with its themes of creations and creators. The story is nostalgic yet fresh, the cinematography and directing by Ridley Scott is stunning, the soundtrack by Jed Kurzel is eerie and atmospheric, and the movie is a dark and entertaining sci-fi horror film worthy of the Alien franchise. What I love about Covenant is all the risks this film takes and where it may go next. I really hope this film gets a sequel so I would recommend all fans of this movie to pick it up on blu ray and show Fox that we want to see this story continued. This 4K set gets my highest recommendation!

    The Best Alien Movie Since the First Two

    The 4K Steelbook is really nice although I feel they could have chosen better artwork. At the very least, I would have swapped the back cover artwork (xenomorph head) with the front cover artwork (neomorph baby). The blu ray and 4K picture and sound quality is excellent. As for the movie itself, it really baffles me how much negativity some Alien fans express towards it. To me, Alien: Covenant is one of my favorite films of the year and ranks in my top 3 Alien films of all time. It's the best film in the franchise since James Cameron's Aliens in 1986.

    Alien and Aliens are two of my favorite movies of all time and are widely proclaimed to be two of the greatest films in history. But as we all know, the follow ups over the last couple of decades have largely been disappointments. Alien Covenant did not disappoint. This film connects the prequel, Prometheus, with Alien and I think it does a good job. Some reviewers wanted more Prometheus story here, but I honestly don't know that there's a lot to tell there and I like the way this film got to the point and what we are all here to see, the Xenomorph creature. I felt this was a good thrill ride and has moments as memorable as some of the best we've seen in these films. Plus Michael Fassbender is excellent. I would rank this film third best in the franchise overall behind Alien and Aliens. As for the product, it has amazing art on the front of the steelbook and I love the minimalism present on the covers. And this is an extremely good price at this point in Aug. 2017 for a 4K steelbook as most others cost far more than this one at $26.99. This is a good buy and definitely recommended.

Ten years later the Colony ship known as Covenant is woken up from hypersleep and endure conflict when the ship gets complications.. they pick up a signal from a near by planet and proceed to investigate. Which is code for any Weyland Corporation worker. Any signs of life must be investigated. Little do they know this paradise is not what it seems.. the film stars Michael Fassbender(Xmen:Apocalypse) Katherine Waterston(Fantastic Beast and where to find them) Danny McBride(This is the end)Guy Pierce(Iron Man 3) Callie Hernandez(La La Land), Demian Bichir(Machete Kills) with Carmen Ejogo(The Purge: Anarchy) & Noomi Rapace(Prometheus) This steelbook is a must over the standard bluray version.

    Suspenseful, intriguing, but in a different way

    You have to go into this movie not expecting the same experience that you get with Alien or Aliens. I recommend you watch Prometheus first before this one to get the sense of what is happening. We have here is an origin story to one of the most frightening creatures in Sci-Fi. Because of this we have a schism within the Alien fan base. I would say to keep an open mind about the movie and it’s prequel. This movie reintroduces the Xenomorph beloved in alien movies, but at far less screen time than die hard fans would like. I love the movie for diving into the lore but I can’t say the next nerd will feel the same way. Watch it with an open mind and expect a new experience.

    Great Release for an Underrated Movie

    Beautiful visuals, great sound, and lots of special features. Love that there's a directory commentary with Ridley Scott (haven't listened to it yet but I'm looking forward to doing so) and deleted scenes. This a beautiful movie that deserves to be viewed in the highest def you can. This steelbook edition is very pretty and definitely my favorite packaging for this release. The movie itself I think is underrated, with thoughtful themes being meaningfully explored and cleaning up some of the messing thematic issues of Prometheus while still leaving room for more exploration in the next film.

    Ridley Scott and H.R.Giger practically defined the Sci-fi Horror genre.I'm too young to have truly enjoyed experiencing ALIEN back in the late 70's for the first time. I was born in 1981 and by the time i was old enough to appreciate it,we already had so many great science fiction stories/movies. This is another great addition in the ALIEN saga and as a big fan i loved it. Of course some may not have liked it,or it could have been better,but it is exactly what it is. In Retrospect its a Ridley Scott ALIEN film finished and final and as a fan its perfect too me because it is.

    I didn't catch it in theaters so I bought this exclusive 4K/Bluray/Digital Steelbook and first off I love the packaging. The movie was great and tied in nicely with Prometheus. Great horror monster sci-fi movie. Also the special features are a must to continue the movie experience and dives deeper into the story line with added footage. I saw it on Bluray but when I get a 4K tv with HDR Im watching it again.

    best edition to the alien franchise

    'Alien: Covenant' might just be the second best film in this franchise. Ridley Scott does a wonderful job of building a bridge between 'Prometheus' and 'Alien'. While the two androids David and Walter are definitely scene-stealers, the human characters are also for the most part much more interesting than in the previous film (especially Katherine Waterston as Daniels, Danny McBride as Tennessee, and Billy Crudup as Oram). While I love 'Aliens' too, I'm glad we're getting to see Scott's full vision for the Alien franchise.

    Immersion, Connection

    I'm a devoted fan of the Alien/Predator/Prometheus movies. This movie was one of the best (though it is hard to choose a "best"). The story line connects to threads in other movies, which gives the movie depth and really pulls you into this world. The wider context makes you feel immersed in this Alien world. This movie exposes more human (. . . etc.) connections than the other movies, takes off in new directions, and shows us a new Alien, beyond the Alien we all know and are revolted by. I loved this movie.

    This is a point that many will disagree with. I'd rate this as the best Alien film to date. It's directed by the first Alien director Ridley Scott. The initial Alien film was exception. It was also the first of its kind. That, to me, is the primary reason so many view it as the best. Alien Covenant doesn't have the luxury of being the first or the second or the third. It still manages to keep you enthralled from beginning to end and the acting and effects are better than the first.

    If you appreciated the original Alien directed by Ridley Scott and the recent Prometheus movie, you will love this. great pickup from Prometheus, continuing the alien story and saga. why they called it alien covenant is beyond me, granted it sounds better than Prometheus 2. Ridley def knows his Syfy and glad to see him back in action on Alien movies. highly recommend if you are an Alien movie fan

    I purchased a large screen TV and needed a better format than was provided by DVDs. Blu-Ray format definitely works for this TV. I already had the movie on DVD but it was worth the upgrade. Movie is a prequel to the original series and is quite action packed. If you enjoyed the original alien movies you will like this one.

    I am a big fan of the Alien franchise. There's a few so so ones in the middle, but Ridley Scott is a great director, and this movie is a perfect example of what he does well. I'd put this at number three, right after the first two Alien movies, which are two of the best movies EVER. And therefore so is this one. Check it out!

    Without spoiling the connection between the movies, this story has a palpable link to what happened at the end of Prometheus, cleaver plot points and great Alien sequences with an amazing plot twist to link into more of the Alien universe! Recommended for Alien franchise lovers, anyone else who hasn't seen them might be a bit overwhelmed with the plot, not saying that would detract from the experience though.

    If you've never watched Prometheus, this movie is a flop. If you watch Prometheus this is a great movie. Ridley Scott does a great job of bridging Prometheus to Alien. Visual effects are awesome the cinematography is great the movie turned out better than I was even expecting. If you watched all the alien movies including Prometheus and the Alien vs. predators this movie goes directly into your fan collection.

    This movie answers many of the questions Prometheus left but leaves itself open for the third movie. If you hated Prometheus this movie won't change your mind and its best not to waste your time. I feel like its structured well and I never felt bored during the movie. It was always interesting to me and kept me entertained and that's all i can ask of a movie. It looks great on 4k and the steelbook is really neat as well.

    Boy was this movie good! I am a huge fan of all the ALIEN movies and this movie fits in great. It starts to tell the viewer some of the history of the alien creature. It starts out where the previous movie (PROMETHEUS) left off. If you are a fan of the ALIEN movies you have to watch this one. I can't wait until the next one in the series comes out!

    The Alien Franchise pushes forward with another great film. Prometheus is my personal favorite and this didn't disappoint either. I was a bit skeptical when it first came out. Seeing McBride in a starring role of this sort was weird to me but it turned out great! if your a fan definitely pick this up. It looks great in UHD as well!

    I love anything and everything Alien! They could make a movie about an Alien fighting a Predator and I'd watch it! Oh wait, they did that, and it was awesome!!! Seriously, after Prometheus, I was expecting something totally different to be going down in Covenant but wow I surprised! Oh and the missing 20+ minutes that didn't make it into the theater are on this release :)
