After escaping with Newt and Hicks from the alien planet, Ripley crash lands on Fiorina 161, a prison planet and host to a correctional facility. Unfortunately, although Newt and Hicks do not survive the crash, a more unwelcome visitor does. The prison does not allow weapons of any kind, and with aid being a long time away, the prisoners must simply survive in any way they can.


Alien 3 is directed by first-timer David Fincher, and though he brings off quite a few successful shock moments, he makes a bit of a mess of the protracted climax, because we're never really sure what's really happening. 

The creature is still wonderfully scary and Sigourney Weaver even without her hair is splendid.


Margaret: It's not as scary as the other two I don't think. But she's terrific.
