Alien: Covenant (Ridley Scott – 2017) B+

It’s not too common that a sequel makes the film that came before it a bit better and make more sense. Covenant does that for Prometheus. I had a good time with this flawed movie and enjoyed the various set pieces and the main themes, especially the first 45 minutes or so. We still have a problem with smart people doing stupid things and that’s where it mainly fails. On the other hand it looks great, has some excellent action sequences and we have a very interesting character played again by Michael Fassbender in the synthetic person role. He drives a lot of the plot and the whole Alien series. Thumbs up for very creative alien-out-of-human busting scenes as well.
