It’s deadly serious about matters that he takes deadly seriously, and the only things that he derides with any irony are the movie’s snippets of art greater than his own, by artists greater than himself—starting with Wagner, whose “Entry of the Gods into Valhalla” is heard in the first and last scene. The movie’s lack of irony is all the more ironic since its subject is the recklessness of mankind in daring to synthesize humans androidally in order to extend our own control over the universe.

Scott does more than make a horror film here; he makes a film about the horror genre, its history, its place in the psyche, analysing the way the death-dream constantly underlies all fantasies of ego and eros.

There’s an air of mystery to Alien: Covenant that the movie can’t live up to, because for all its interest in what it all means, it has relatively little to show for all that idle questioning. You aren’t alone, humans, but if you’re going to keep squandering perfectly fine IP in favor of asking questions whose implications you don’t take seriously, don’t you deserve to be?
