Alien: Covenant(2017) Movie Review

Plot:
The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an unchared paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape. 

Prelude:
I am a big fan of Alien and Aliens. I think that Alien is close to a perfect movie, and Aliens is a masterpiece. I also really like Prometheus, inspite of its obvious shortcomings. So, I was really looking forward to this movie. Also, Ridley Scott is directing it, and that's one more reason. I saw this movie on 02/06/2017. 

Pro's:
Breath-taking cinematography: This movie looks incredible. This is easily the best-looking movie of this year(among the ones I've seen so far). 
The acting: Everyone is at the top of their game. They are all incredible.
Michael Fassbender: I know that I've already stated acting as a pro, but this guy's performance has to be stressed. He pretty much carries the entire movie, and he is beyond amazing.
The alien stuff.
The origin of the Xenomorph.
There are many bold themes in the movie.
There are many thought-provoking scenes and dialogues.

Con's:
The convergence between Prometheus and Alien is not done very well.
There isn't enough for fans of Promotheus or Alien. I can't believe that I'm saying this, but, this could have benefited from being two movies.
There are many horror movie cliches.
Some of the characters are pretty disposable.

Verdict:
Overall, I thought this was a very good movie. For those who didn't Prometheus, the first act and the first half of second act won't bode well, and for those who liked Prometheus(like myself), there isn't enough answers, as Prometheus movie left us with a lot of unanswered questions. The alien stuff, while awesome, doesn't fit well with the rest of the movie. But, this is still a very good movie. Score: 7.5/10.

Is it an anime movie or a real movie?

It's a real movie. I only post real movie stuff here. I post all the anime stuff in the respective anime discussion sections.

I see. That's fine.

Those are anime related, right? Stuff from the latest episodes, I mean. Nothing from manga.

That's right. I thought you stopped reading one piece manga. So you don't have to worry about spoilers
