Hello soapies, this is DBG inked, me and soapso watched Alien covenant earlier this week and she asked me to do a quick review of the film as I have watched all the others, this will be a vague rewiew as to not spoil the film for any soapies looking to view it, out of a possible 10 I would give this film a solid 6, although it was a step up from Prometheus it still wasn’t close to living up to the original film’s, I enjoyed the start of the film and the atmosphere however I found the character depth just wasn’t there you couldn’t invest or feel for any of the people in it, the story line was far from the classic alien and more a continuation of Prometheus, the plot holes and inconsistencies made the film lose a lot of its effect. Furthermore some scenes weren’t needed and scenes that where needed weren’t there, all this being said the film did have amazing visual effects, a great amount of gore and a amazing sound track. Even with its faults it still made for a good thriller/horror and if the name on it wasn’t Alien I would of enjoyed it a lot more. As well as this In my personal opinion if they made Prometheus and Alien Covenant a film series on its own (changed the name of this film to just covernant and changed the aliens slightly as the new virus idea and aliens looked incredible) it could of been a stand alone amazing series but as alien movies they just don’t feel right, to finalise this movie was a good space horor/thriller but a bad aliens movie. I would like to thank soapso for a chance to write on her blog and thank all the soapies out there for reading, by all means please comment with your opinions of the movie but please no hate as this is my personal review of the film and might not be yours. Kind regards DBG inked
