Written by Logan and Dante Harper and directed by Ridley Scott, Alien: Covenant begins on the colony ship Covenant. It’s bound for the far side of the galaxy. Crew members (Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup) discover what they think to be an uncharted paradise. There they meet David (Michael Fassbender), the synthetic survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. The mysterious world soon turns dark and dangerous. And an alien life-form forces the crew into a fight for survival.
The science-fiction sequel sports a 65% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes. The Critics Consensus reads. Alien: Covenant delivers another satisfying round of close-quarters deep-space terror. Even if it doesn’t take the saga in any new directions.
