    Alien: Covenant

    ★★½

    Alien: Covenant is a tough film to write about. For all its shortcomings, I actually quite like Prometheus. And its biggest flaw - the lack of payoff for its philosophical ponderings - could easily be fixed by this film.

    That is, if anyone involved in the creation of this film had learned anything from the mistakes made by Prometheus. Covenant follows the structure of Prometheus almost to a tee. Of course, the setting and characters are (mostly) different this time…
