‘Alien Covenant:’ 5 Things That Worked, 5 Things That…

This past weekend, Alien: Covenant hit theaters. Ridley Scott’s follow-up to Prometheus, the Alien prequel continued to tell tales before the events of the Nostromo crew. This time, the crew of the Covenant, a colonization crew responds to a distress signal and finds even more terrifying things. We here at Heroic Hollywood thought the film was a valiant effort, but did not live up to Ridley Scott’s classic film and was overall a C+. Like Prometheus, Alien: Covenant was a divisive film, even amongst hardcore fans. The mixed reviews did not stop theatergoers from going to see the latest installment as the film was the number one movie this past weekend, dethroning Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. So, there’s still a lot of love for this franchise.

As stated before, the film was a divisive one. It did capture some of the horrors that the franchise desperately needed. It also did not correct the mistakes of the previous film, and in fact once again raised more questions than it answered. Even if you thought it was a flawed film, there were a lot of good things to take in with the bad. Here are some of the good and bad in Alien: Covenant. SPOILERS GALORE!! Click Next to take a look…
