| An entertaining, brutal and very confusing sequel.
Okay, I'll tell the truth. I did not expect much from the sequel to Promethues, as it seemed that the level of the Alien films declined more and more, but this time, It was quite different.

The film has no doubt, the most beautiful views we see in the saga of Alien, has some incredible special effects, a very good script, spectacular performances (Fassbender is incredible) an entertaining plot, good sound design, great visuals And a lot, a lot of blood. I think it is the most bloody and violent film in the entire saga, just like the first time I saw Aliens, this one left me shocked and I try to see again and again.

I am a big fan of science fiction and horror, Alien is my favorite saga, I must say that I am very grateful to Scott for the fantastic thing that is this new movie, very incredible, no doubt, it was quite entertaining and intense to experiment it in cinema. But, perhaps one of its biggest mistakes is its strange and too confusing narrative on the part of the director; this film is supposed to be designed to give answers to past problems, to the questions that we have asked ourselves so much, however, it only ends up reeling over themselves and trying to add layer upon layer of complexity that simply end up being unnecessary overexposure.

Leaving that aside, it was a quite entertaining movie, with intense scenes and wonderful shots. I also highlight the incredible performance of Fassbender. Simple and fascinating I can describe it.

Something interesting that I should highlight; Hell, this movie is brutal.

Trivia

As part of the collaboration between Twentieth Century Fox and Audi, a short film created by 20th Century Fox, 3AM and Audi was captured on one of the movie's biggest sets. It shows the Audi lunar quattro patrolling the Terraforming Bay when it detects an unidentified lifeform and goes to investigate what lurks in the dark. The events in the short however contradict the events laid out in the film, with the short film showing the Xenomorph on the Covenant on the same date that the crew woke up from hypersleep. Assuming the date is simply in error, it still does not explain how Cole (who was shown killed on Planet 4) is somehow still alive onboard the Covenant while the Xenomorph prowls about.


Quotes

Peter Weyland: How do you feel?
David: Alive.


Goofs

When Walter beats David in the face during their fight, David's speech becomes "bubbly" like Ash in Alien. But when he joins the crew on the ship, he no longer has this problem.


Crazy Credits

The 20th Century Fox logo is in a shade of dark blue-gray.


Alternate Versions

Chinese version was heavily edited to get an approval from film censor's office. Beside violent scenes, almost any scene with an Alien was cut/shortened so you can barely see the creatures. The kiss between David and Walter was removed as well.
