The weakest instalment in the Alien series (and if you want some real trivia, this is the first movie I ever saw in the US) sees Ripley crash landing on a prison planet populated with forgotten convicts who've found God.

Except that one of the creatures is after her again, having stowed on the ship (again? Hasn't Ripley learned?), killed Newt and Hicks and caused the crash.

The same (by now fairly tired) premise of the characters being picked off one by one ensues, and while Fincher's direction is adequate (albeit a more dark and moody one than the overtly science fiction aesthetic Cameron bought to the predecessor), the story mostly meanders and fails to hold you in.
