Review – Aliens and Androids and Action, Oh My! (“Alien: Covenant”)

With this sequel to 2012’s Prometheus (which was a prequel, BTW), we continue director/writer Ridley Scott’s vision of other worlds, alien humanoids called Engineers that, according to the last movie, made us from their DNA and, of course, those nearly unstoppable bio-mechanical xenomorph alien creatures.

Well, he’s back with another English/Spanish language comedy film, starring himself with another child by his side. * * Derbez (a sorta Mexican Jerry…
