Like the previous prologue short, It's been stated that this doesn't appear in the film - this one serves as a connector between Prometheus and Covenant - but I suspect the 2nd part of this will feature in the film, so huge possible spoilers if you click on this LINK

Dullest aliens movie ever with an action hero who looks like Susan Calman.

Still the fight on the lifter was decent.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

Wetland-Yutani. Sending idiots into space since 2100.

The Covenant is just a giant Eagle transporter from Space 1999, crewed by the B ark from Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy.

The art of writing memorable characters seems to be lacking in the current crop of Hollywood screenwriters.

I'd pay to see Susan Calman as the action hero against a horde of xenomorphs (and woe betide anything that goes near her cat).

Going to see this again at the cinema on Thursday after already seeing it on opening day. On first viewing I came away quite happy. It wasn't the Alien film I wanted, but at least it was an Alien film on the big screen.

I suppose expecting it to be as good as either of the first two was asking a bit much...

What a terrible movie, rather pathetic attempts to replicate the action from previous Alien films mashed up with pointless backstory which damages the original film.
