MPAA explanation: sci-fi violence, bloody images, language and some sexuality/nudity
Alien Covenant is a fun movie, but there are some very gory parts. Violence - (5/5) There are several bloody attack, and nearly all 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 slight (could easily be in a PG-13 movie, or a 80's PG). Contains a few slight sexual jokes, and about 2-3 secs of a couple in a shower, (tough to notice anything) which (MILD SPOILER) is quickly ended by an Alien strike (SPOILER OVER). Language - (3/5) Some F-Bombs and a few other word, but not used constantly. This movie depends on your child overall. If your teen can handle some gory fantasy violence they can easily handle this movie. Also there are several 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, character types vomit and spew blood, and there's combating, kicking, and stabbing, along with shooting and explosions. Language can be 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 provides 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 much like 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-older laboratory cave, filled with creepy specimens and papers flapping in the chilling draft quietly. And the slightly faster, noisier way that Scott handles the alien episodes -- 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 unwanted/over the top to you, or it is appropriate to the genre/story? How achieved it affect you? What's the impact of mass 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 character types of the Alien franchise?
What's the appeal of the Alien movies? How does this one compare to others in the series?
