The crew members of the spaceship Covenant travel to a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy on a colonization mission. All of the members are couples, who are risking everything to form a new colony on the planet.

Once landed, they discover what seems to be a paradise, with fields of wheat. But when team leader Daniels (Katherine Waterston) notices the extreme silence of the planet, it's unnerving. There are no birds or animals — in fact, there are no signs of life at all. They discover evidence of an earlier doomed expedition. It soon becomes clear that there is something incredibly dangerous to human life on this otherwise beautiful planet.

  • 4 stars "This was a good movie with an excellent plot and special effects. Unfortunately, Katherine Waterston's acting was exceptionally irritating and marred the entire film with her 'I am going to break down and cry' look that prevailed through out the entire movie. Still , I rated the movie at four stars as it is entertaining."
  • 5 stars "Awesome movie from start to finish!"
  • 2 stars "This movie had potential to be great but it was ruined by poor acting and lousy character development. Absolutely every character is lacking a shred of intelligence and it's actually irritating to watch them stumble from catastrophe to another. The lead female character is always on the verge of tears and not very convincing in her role. Disappointing."
