Alien: Harvest is the sixth 40th Anniversary Alien short and it’s a bit of a mixed bag. Visually, it’s likely the strongest of the series and reminds me more of Tony Scott than Ridley Scott.
The place where it falls apart is toward the end where it plays less like a cohesive narrative than a fan film–which in a way it is–in that the filmmakers seem to throw virtually every iconic element of the Alien series into the frame.
And it’s a pity because if a little restraint were exercised Alien: Harvest would have likely been the best of the shorts.
Instead it’s a bit of an also-ran. Stronger than the bulk of the other entries, but by no means as good as Alien: Ore.
