Critic Reviews:

The vu has never been so déja: it’s a greatest-hits compilation of the other Alien films’ freaky moments. The paradox is that though you are intended to recognise these touches, you won’t really be impressed unless you happen to be seeing them for the first time.

The personal enjoyment you derive from the film probably depends on what you thought of Scott’s 2012 semi-prequel, “Prometheus,” a high-minded sci-fi chiller that presumed to explain the origins of not just the “Alien” series but of mankind itself.

Scott's approach is that of a grand conductor. And Covenant is his symphony of mayhem: a blood-splattered, chaotic mess as people shoot their guns wildly into the dark, slip over and fall into vast pools of blood, and excrete about a kiddie pool's volume in sweat.
