How to Watch Alien: Covenant Full Movie in HD Quality?
Alien Covenant is a fun movie, but there are some very gory parts. Violence - (5/5) There are many bloody attack, and most of them show cracking bones, spurting blood (buckets), burning skin, and much more. As for scares, there are some jump scares (that are not very scary) and much less scares than most of the other Alien movies, (feels more like a thriller/suspense movie than horror) so not very scary. Sex - (2/5) Extremely mild (could easily be in a PG-13 movie, or a 80's PG). Contains a few mild sexual jokes, and about 2-3 seconds of a couple in a shower, (hard to see anything) which (MILD SPOILER) is quickly ended by an Alien attack (SPOILER OVER). Language - (3/5) Some F-Bombs and a few other word, but not used constantly. Overall this movie depends on your child. If your teen can handle some gory fantasy violence they can easily handle this movie. Also there are many strong role models of both sexes. Thank you for reading my review :-)
Parents need to know that Alien: Covenant is the sequel to Prometheus and the sixth overall movie in the Alien series (or eighth. if you count the Alien vs. Predator movies). It's scary and violent: There's lots of blood and gore, aliens bursting from body cavities, a beheading, and someone being burned alive (charred remains are shown). Faces are burned with acid, characters vomit and spew blood, and there's fighting, kicking, and stabbing, as well as shooting and explosions. Language is also fairly strong, with multiple uses of "f--k," plus "s--t," "t-ts," and more. There's one somewhat-graphic sex scene, with partial female nudity (a breast). Characters drink and smoke briefly. As has often been the case in the Alien series, one of the central characters is a strong, brave woman (here played by Katherine Waterston).
While the story offers little new -- it seems patched together from Alien, Prometheus, and even Blade Runner -- director Ridley Scott's moody, thoughtful style makes this sequel worth seeing. Alien: Covenant, which is -- counting the two Alien vs. Predator movies -- the eighth in the Alien franchise, starts quite similarly to the original 1979 film. It has an unexpected wake-up call, an investigation, and the discovery of the horrid monster.
But even as Covenant moves into territory already covered by Scott's other sci-fi movies, it proves that Scott knows what he's doing here. He creates powerful, striking imagery right out of myth, from a doomed necropolis filled with blackened, statue-like bodies to David's years-old laboratory cave, filled with creepy specimens and papers flapping quietly in the chilling draft. And the slightly faster, noisier way that Scott handles the alien attacks -- they're not as spooky as they were in the original -- is easily forgiven after scenes between David and Walter arguing over the meaning of existence.
Families can talk about Alien: Covenant's violence. Did any of it feel unnecessary/over the top to you, or it is appropriate to the genre/story? How did it affect you? What's the impact of media violence on kids?
Is Daniels a role model? Why or why not? Does she represent any valuable character strengths? How does she compare to the other female characters of the Alien franchise?
What's the appeal of the Alien movies? How does this one compare to others in the series?
