“Alien: Covenant” a Critical Hit

Looks like the critics are taking notice of “Alien: Covenant,” giving it a Certified Fresh rating from review site Rotten Tomatoes.

The critic’s consensus applauds the action-packed film, saying fans of the franchise won’t be disappointed:

“Alien: Covenant delivers another satisfying round of close-quarters deep-space terror, even if it doesn’t take the saga in any new directions.”

The film which opens nationwide today is the sixth sequel (second prequel) to the original which premiered nearly 40 years ago.

This time a crew explores what they think is a Garden of Eden, only to find out the Devil’s in the details.
