I know that a lot of people slammed this film but it's actually one of my favourites. I first saw it at the cinema when it first came out and have watched it time and time again since.
This film has bags of atmosphere, excellent acting and brilliant special effects along with a great storyline. Filming was done in the UK and the tunnels where filming took place are fantastic and provide superb surroundings.
As well as Charles Dance, Charles S Dutton and Pete Postlethwaite, and obviously Sigournay Weaver there are others that create the atmosphere and dark humour. Long story short, Ellen Ripleys escape pod crash lands on a prison planet after the events in Aliens, where she finds herself surrounded by life term criminals, who effectively have been abandoned by the authorities.
What follows is humour, horror, suspense, death, shaven heads by the dozen and the third instalment of one of the very best science fiction series of films ever. If you haven't seen it already, where have you been? If you haven't seen it, your in for a treat! Imagine how it would be to be in a position to have never seen this series of films! Even though I have and repeatedely, I still watch them again and again and will continue to do so! Excellent!
