It’s the best “Alien” movie in 30 years!
Is it worth $10? Yes
Admit it: We all despised “Prometheus” (2012), right? It was too long, too confusing, and didn’t seem to have much to do with the “Alien” franchise at all.
Thankfully, with “Alien: Covenant” director Ridley Scott (“The Martian”) has his act together: The action is exciting, the visuals are bold and impressive (see this in IMAX if you can), and the story has clarity that nicely anticipates future installments. This is how you make a good prequel.
