"The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape." – Foxmovies.com
"Wow!", that's one word I would describe my reaction after I left the cinema. I sure did love this movie, everything from the CGI, storyline to binding together it with the previous movie "Prometheus".
I'm a big fan of the Alien-franchise, as well as I'm one of those who really loved Prometheus. I was beyond excited when they announced they would make a sequel to Prometheus, since I fell in love with how they told the story of how "alien" came to life. Although, I have to admit when I saw the trailers I was slightly disappointed. I got the feeling that the movie wouldn't continue on the story where they left off.
I couldn't be more wrong. As much as the movie had its own story, it still manage to answer the questions you had left from Prometheus! I don't want to give away too much, but the biggest question I think all of us had after Prometheus was "what happened to Dr. Elizabeth Shaw?" Well, if you watch the movie you will find out. Personally I think Alien: Covenant was the best way to continue the story of Prometheus and how the Alien-franchise really came to life.
As for actors and CGI, I'm pleased with both parts. But I would say CGI took home the prize. Most of the actors you've seen before and they're not bad as well as they're not the best. Although the CGI, damn I was pleased. I'm a sucker for the gore, blood and guts, and I got as much as I was expecting! In the end, Alien: Covenant is a movie worth watching and I highly recommend it!
