Goofs

When Daniels and Tennessee eject the trucks from the cargo bay, they start to fall towards the planet.

The Covenant spent most of the movie very close to the planet's surface, including near the end meaning the planet's gravity would have an effect on the truck. If the Covenant had been orbiting, the trucks would have merely trailed behind it in the same orbit ; but it was effectively hovering over the planet, so they fell out. See more »

Don't waste your money! This disappointment does not deserve it.
12 May 2017 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Worst script ever. Each death was predictable and more comedic than anything else, the 'twist' ending was obvious from the second act. I wanted the characters to die so I could leave the theater sooner. This has even tainted my beloved memory of the original. Ridley is certainly losing his touch if he thinks this is a passable film, or just proving he no longer cares about the quality of his works and just the box office it can generate. The only positive was it was visually stimulating and the sound design was good, other than that an overall awful film.
