Movie review: Alien: Covenant

Here at RunPee we make a concerted effort to get the reviews for blockbuster movies up by Friday morning. Unfortunately, this week my heart just wasn’t in it. Not because I didn’t care for the movie, but because my heart was being poked and prodded by a team of professionals who didn’t care that I had a review to write. I genuinely want to thank my readers for being patient (during the time I was a patient) at my local hospital (pun intended).

*Alien: Covenant* was indeed a spectacular movie. Even though it was a physically dark movie, I found it rich and beautiful in its presentation. It goes without saying that the directing and pacing was spot on. The actors did a fine job, but I must give extra kudos to Michael Fassbender for his double role as David and Walter. I could actually believe that I was watching two different actors, rather than one actor playing two different roles.

Fans of *Prometheus* will be blown away by *Alien: Covenant*. And the wait for the next installment will give die-hard sci-fi fans something to look forward to, other than *Comic-Con*. Be strong; we will be rewarded for our diligence.
