After escaping with Newt and Hicks from the moon LB-426, Ellen Ripley crash-lands on Fiorina 161, a prison planet and home to a correctional facility. Unfortunately, although Newt and Hicks did not survive the crash, a more unwelcome visitor does. The prison does not allow weapons of any kind, and with help being a long time away, the prisoners must simply survive in any way they can. When help does arrive, the true intentions of the Company becomes clear. While living on the prison planet until she is rescued by her employers, Ripley discovers the horrifying reason for her crash: An alien stowaway. As the alien matures and begins killing off the prisoners, Ripley is unaware that her true enemy is more than just the killer alien. Written by

Michael Biehn stated in an interview that he was deeply hurt that the film opened with his character from Aliens (1986), Corporal Dwayne Hicks, being killed off, after escaping with Ripley, Newt and Bishop at the end of the previous film, and did not understand why Hicks had to die. He therefore refused the studio permission to use a dummy of a corpse in his likeness, but allowed them the use of his photograph. See more »
During the montage at the start of the movie, the facehugger is presented as breaking through some glass followed by spilt acid eating through the decking and causing the cryogenic tubes to be ejected. The broken glass was directly over Ripley, so any acid spilled from the wounded facehugger should have dripped onto Ripley and scarred her horribly if not killed her outright, yet she is uninjured from the facehugger's acid blood. In fact, the 'acid burn' is along Newt's cryotube and not Ripley's tube. See more »

I just watched this again. I've seen Alien and Aliens countless time, but have only seen Alien 3 once and that was pretty much enough for the last 15 years.
This movie is really just a waste of time, because the few good ideas and interesting things that happen are completely overshadowed by the illogical plot, worthless characters and slasher feel (you could replace the alien with any other movie monster, no problem).
I don't think this has anything to do with David Fincher, though.
He did not write the story or the script, and those areas are where the major problems lie.
Think of all the other movies he has directed since then:
Seven, Fight Club, The Game
Those are three of my all-time favorite movies, and the ones I didn't list above, like panic room, are still good movies.
I just can't believe that it was Fincher causing the problems here, but I can believe that he could be easily pushed around by a studio during his directorial debut (maybe even their fall-guy?). Blame the studio for letting this P.O.S. go into production in the first place.
