Consensus: Alien: Covenant delivers another satisfying round of close-quarters deep-space terror, even if it doesn't take the saga in any new directions.

This may not be a movie that reinvents the wheel. But it's one that knows how to make it roll.

A curious film, made with the wandering eye of a provocateur who descends deeply into an abyss only to find himself tethered by the narrowed vision of a movie studio more interested in formulas of the past.

Yet again a crew sniffs after a mysterious ping and sticks their nose in a deadly larva pod. Are our astronauts learning? God no. And if the audience expected a different plot, we're not learning, either.

It's an Alien movie for our times, one in which mankind isn't just under the thumb of an oppressive corporation but sowing the seeds of its own destruction on a more sweeping scale.

It sets in stone what has been previously left to imagination. But it does so in a way that is as compelling as it is unsettling, given life by an astonishing dual performance from Michael Fassbender.

As redesigns go, Alien: Covenant is not ambitious, but it's roaringly, repulsively effective.

There are plenty of reasons to shut your eyes and cross your legs while watching this film, but is that the same as being scared?

How could anyone ever hope to top the scene from "Alien" in which a slimy, gory, nasty thingie bursts out of John Hurt's chest? Well, you can't. But Ridley Scott comes pretty damn close in "Alien Covenant".

Missing the suspense of the first 2 installments Covenant is a solid, but conventional monster movie.

Was Prometheus really as bad a movie as fans made it out to be? While the 2012 Alien prequel could be rather obtuse, and the characters made some of the… More
