Just a horrible movie if you liked "Aliens" (Alien 2). This movie starts out by saying all the heroics and sacrifice in Aliens was a waste of time. This movie starts out by killing the surviving space marine and little girl from Aliens. Why was that necessary? Beyond that there is a big plot hole in that this all is necessary to get an Alien to be used as some kind of weapon. In "Aliens" we saw that a platoon of human space Marines could kill off hundreds of the creatures with limited weapons. A simple shotgun was enough to kill one. So why go through all that trouble? But putting that aside there are still other problems. The action takes place on a prison planet where the convicts were given the choice to leave or stay but this group volunteers to stay due to a new religion. However within minutes of seeing Sigourney Weaver most of the staff turn into rapists. Huh? If they wanted a woman that bad why did they stay behind? Sigourney hops into bed with the local doctor which would to her have been about the day after the events in "Aliens" took place. Why was that? If you set aside all that it still boils down to people with bare hands in a dark setting against an Alien predator. It was done before and better in the original "Alien". This is a waste of time and energy.
