WTH went wrong here?
21 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

When Alien Covenant was announced, I was excited. I was really hoping that after a slew of bad and mediocre Alien films that someone would take charge and the franchise would finally see some redemption, especially after the highly loathed, Prometheus. WRONG.

Besides for Avatar: The Last Airbender, I've never wanted to walk out of a film and ask for my money back like I did with this one.

Overall: terrible characters, boring plot, wasted opportunity to move the franchise in a fresh direction, unfulfilling action, lackluster suspense, reused ideas and an even poorer and more uninteresting plot than Prometheus.

I could honestly write for days how much I hated this movie, but you get the point.

After walking out of this movie, I couldn't help but think whatever happened to the Alien film that Neill Blomkamp was meant to direct that was supposed to bring back Ridley and a bunch of original characters. The concept art for that movie alone looks 100x cooler than what this movie threw at us, which was absolute rubbish.

So disappointed. . .
