The Story Line:
In the prologue, Peter Weyland, the business magnate talks with his present activated android, someone that selected the name of “David” after witnessing the imitation of Michelangelo’s figure of David. Weyland told David that there is a day that they will look for mankind’s creation together. David then commented on his personal unlimited lifespan when compared to the creator’s limited one.
In year 2104, after 11 years, the expedition of Prometheus, the ship Covenant colonization is bounded for Origae-6, the remote planet, with 15 crews, 2 thousand migrants in stasis, and about 1,140 human embryos on board. The ship was monitored by the Walter, the present model android that physically looks like David. The stellar burst breaks the ship, and kills 47 colonists. Walter ordered the ship’s computer in waking the crews, which included some of the married couples. Jake Branson, the ship’s captain was burnt alive when the stasis pod malfunctioned. During the repair of the ship, the crews pick-up the radio transmission coming from the habitable nearby planet. Contrary with the doubts of Daniels, the present captain, Oram, settles on investigating.
The Writers View:
In this movie, there were no suspense and no horror. An enduring stained on the contract that will make you feel grimy after watching it. There are no much expectations in this film. There was a less knowledge about it rather than being a sequel of the Prometheus. The movie did not have even a single redeeming scene. The plot is rambling and quite frankly with a total mess. Sadly, the editing was horrendous, and the scores totally forget the cinematography that went weirdly terrible.
