Movie Grade: A
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.
