    Well, it pains me to read all these negative comments It seems almost as if some just want it fail

    Personally... I loved it!! I think its a Superb film & I particularly like the way the new life cycle is going. To me its more inline with the original concept of egg-morphing before Cameron jumped in & gave it something that IMO took away from the fear a rogue alien put into it.

    The Queen & hive concept is all too familiar & not scary at all, its just a bigger alien & IMO bigger doesn't mean better. Don't get me wrong, Aliens is a great film but I'm happy to see it de-canonised in favour of what IMO is a better, scarier & more unusual life cycle.

    I'm really looking forward to the next instalment, there's so much more story to cover before we get close to the Alien we're all familiar with

    The score is Awesome! I've listened to it a lot & I'm convinced there's not only the obvious cut from the original but also a hint at the Alien3 score in at least one part.

    I have theory I wanted to share regarding David at the end. The twist is all to obvious so I put it to you that its actually Walter with David uploaded to him... what do you think

    Yeah I think there is a possible outcome where David does establish the original ALIEN lifecycle where Xenomorph doesn't just kill victims but transforms them into eggs, creating a closed system of reproduction. And David has 2000 colonist he could transform into all the eggs we see in the Derelict ship in ALIEN. And maybe that ship was flown by an Engineer who is trying to stop David in the third film. Remember the LV426 transmission the Nostromo intercepts was a WARNING. Whoever died flying that ship didn't want anyone to come close to those eggs.

    Page from the Covenant novelization where he says he didn't create the alien. So confused.

    David is a liar, He wanted Oram to trust him.


    Bryancd, Ridley has suggested there could be at least another two films, plenty time to cover the Engineers & how the ship ends up on LV426.

    Yeah. Ridley suggests a lot of things. He suggested a lot things in Prometheus that he literally blew up in Covenant. He needs to stop. He's done enough damage to Alien. Someone take this away from him before he hurts himself.

    I disagree, I think he's doing the Alien story more justice than anyone else has so far & I hope he's around long enough to see this through

    Its interesting though, this film is proving quite divisive among fans, more so than any others so far

    When Daniels stabbed David in the chin with her nail necklace it was left stuck in his flesh for a while and later on when he's putting her in cryo sleep there is no scar or hole or anything where she stabbed him. At first I thought 'Oh, it can't be David because there's no hole where she stabbed him.'

    That makes more sense than having David`s code entered at the end. Interesting . I was more than willing to see this film,enjoyed it and still missed a lot of stuff, imagine what the people who unwillingly went to see it missed.

    It's proved divisive because it's equally as bad as AVP, just with a Ridley Scott aesthetic. People were rightly expecting far greater things than a largely brainless mash-up of Alien and Aliens with a splash of Dr. Moreau thrown in. The "writers" are largely to blame. But, Scott is steering the ship, now. He's not just the director. He's only as good as his source material. And, he's proving not to be very good at generating that himself.

    True, but when you look back, when Walter was originally damaged...he healed extremely quick. I think it even showed his injury hole closing. For me it was too easily telegraphed. I choose to believe that the android at the end is actually Walter, and David somehow downloaded himself and took over Walter.

    I mean, when you stop to think about David cutting and killing Walter, then removing his hand to make it look exactly like Walters damaged/missing limb, running to make it too the lift off in time, and healing from the nail stab, after clearly being messed up (remember how he was talking to Walter, while reaching for the knife...he sounded damaged)...it just seems crazy. Lol

    I just watched ALIEN: Covenant. Did not like Prometheus much, so I didn't have any great expectations for the sequel to Prometheus either.
    Covenant was OK.
    I really like ALIEN and ALIENS back in the old days.....hard to beat them or come close to them. But, it is still possible to produce a great movie from familiar material.
    The Covenant was quite a different direction from Prometheus and not intellectually brilliant, it is very passable as a horror flick. I hope they do a sequel to the Covenant.
    Gotta see what they come up with next time round. David is a badass....want to see his demise and to hear his last words. What a narcissistic deluded little robot he is.
    I think David's "soul" ended up inside the more superior Walter's body. (hmmm?) and Sheesh...was David so pissed off that Walter was built better than him.

    To be honest, I had bad memories of Prometheus, and re watched it like after Covenant, and I actually really liked it. Visuals are breathtaking, and the characters follow a more logical way of thinking x). But it's not as bad as I remembered.

    And I agree with people here, I think David switched bodies too x)

    Switching to Walters body also gives him access to the new upgrades which we dont fully know the extent of yet. It also means that the original David is still loose on the planet,
    I would think if he can upload himself into Walter it would just be a copy of the original files. Two Davids.

    Which makes it plausible that the crashed engineer ship with the eggs could launch by that David back on the planet to do something to back up David 2.0 and end up crashing etc.

    That`s one viable outcome for sure, there must be a parking bay of ships under the round opening that began as David arrived at the Engineers city.
    Can play a long game this David.
