I watched Alien Covenant last night and I’m actually not sure what I thought of it.
I lie. It left me with some serious questions. I feel like I need to go back and watch it again. I’m sure there are things I missed but, overall, it left me with a feeling of confusion…
The story was fine. It was rather similar to the original and I don’t mind that. I like that little bit of fan service. It worked for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and it works for this.
The music was great. I love the sound editing and the score for this film. There are some very nostalgic sounds in this film. It had the haunting notes from Alien and some jarring sounds that just worked well.
The scenery was beautiful but I’m totally biased. It was filmed in New Zealand so… But it was beautiful. The landscape was just different enough for you to feel like you were in a different world.
The acting was good though I’d like to have gotten to know some of the characters in a little more detail. Michael Fassbender was brilliant though.
Definitely see this film on the big screen if you’re a fan of the series.
There were some things that didn’t sit right with me but I will do a proper review over the weekend as I wanted to get my thoughts out quite quickly.
Overall I give it six and a half face huggers out of ten.
