It seems, when it comes to criticizing this franchise, that Part 1, Alien, and Part 2, Aliens, are the only unanimous choices. 3 was too artsy. 4 didn’t understand Ripley. The Alien vs. Predator films were too superficial for purists. You hear it all. And Prometheus got some fans mad. Well, perhaps Alien: Covenant will meet the franchise’s lovers halfway. Yes, it might just be the right formula.
It has the type of procedural Alien had, but with Prometheus’ flavour. It has guns and explosions, being reminiscent of Aliens, but it’s also its own thing. It’s well balanced. It’s gory, tense; it can be slow and it can be larger than life. There are many surprises along the way; some you will see coming and some you won’t. Like fireworks, it gets more intense the closer you get to the end.
Many scenes were specially crafted to reminisce about past installments. Some are right out of a slasher flick. Cyborgs are prominent. Xenomorphs make special appearances. They’re modeled in 3-D but it allows realistic articulation. It makes them more agile than puppets have been in the past. We feel a strong influence from HR Giger, one of the men responsible for the original creature design.
