The least successful film in this series was directed by stylemaster (and content-underachiever) David Fincher. Ripley, the only survivor of her past mission, awakens on a prison planet in the far corners of the solar system. As she tries to recover, … see full wiki
The plot is fairly simple. Ripley's ship crashes on a prison planet with a population of only men. Newt and Hicks are killed before the ship even crashes and once again Ripley is the only survivor. However, an alien pod somehow got aboard and impregnates both Ripley and later a guard dog. The Alien that comes out of the dog takes a dog like shape (suggesting that whatever creature the Alien is born out of is what they will resemble), but the Alien inside of Ripley turns out to be an egglayer (another hole in the script). The prisoners and Ripley battle to kill the monster and Ripley battles with her personal beliefs and her will to survive.
Some of the special effects are really interesting, but they don't make up for the rest of the movies' flaws. Overall not too bad of a sci-fi movie, but not up to the quality of the other Alien films.
