This was the best way to salvage both films, and I enjoyed it immensely.

Interesting edit combining the two films. Definitely addresses a lot of issues with the stupidity of characters, and besides the lack of leading to the second film, the technical aspects of the edit were great.
Personally, the "grey"-ing effect of David kind of threw me off. I almost thought we was going to turn out to simply be a victim for the Covenant half, the way his darkness was mostly removed from Prometheus. So this angle didn't quite work for me. But it may be for some others!

I applaud the efforts of the editor. On a technical level everything was fine overall, however, the narrative choices cannot save this blending of both films. I do not fault the editor though. His choices of cut material is well planned out, but as pthers have said, there is no lead-in to the 2nd half of the film.

Alien Origins
Streamlined…
More direct…
Less fluff and more stuff…
I can comfortably say that I’ve enjoyed this direct mashup of Prometheus & Alien Covenant in one solid story tells. The beginning of Prometheus has been altered but that okay in the grand scheme of things. These 2 stories really center around the actions of David The Android and his love/hate relations with his creator & human counterparts. And honestly that’s all THIS movie watcher desired to see. I’ve also enjoyed the peppered additions of OST scores from the original 1979 Alien film. Watch this cut of the films for additional insight as to why the character ASH is the way he was in the original Alien.

Here's the Breakdown of Rating Category
Audio/video quality : solid multi channel audio. resolution has small bits of video artifacts here and there but the average viewer won’t notice in wide shots. 9 stars
Visual Editing: I usually prefer a full screen viewing as opposed letterbox formats. Still 16:9 but for those that hate black bars this may bother some viewers. 7 stars
Audio Editing: Deep bass during action scene, clean highs for voice acting. Not bad transfer rate... 8 stars

Narrative: movie really shines with its primary focus of David’s intentions with the space jockeys and his love and respect for Doctor Elizabeth Shaw. He once said it himself “one needs to destroy to create the greater good”. This storytelling is a 9 in my book!
Enjoyment: This is easily a 10 but I’m also bias because I grew up with loving everything about this franchise. Viewing this through a fan favorite creation shows our respect for Alien and the message it stood to tell even in the 1970. Even in space... corporate greed kills you!

So luckily i´ve been able to watch this merged edit of prometheus and covenant. I never liked both films. They were too long and pacing off the narration about the whole alien universe.
With this edit i actually felt enjoyment through out of its length. There was the right amount of cutting scenes for the two "independent" movies. Yes the transition from one movie to another is noticeable and probably could´ve been doen slightly better, but it works fine and feels adequate.
Due to the nature of these two films, i don´t think it is possible to preserve the mythology of the creature.

Audio Quality 8 --> due to the lack of other tracks. there is "only" a very good 5.1 stereo mix.
So good work there and thanky you for this edit.
