A review by Mike Shea Movie Rating: ( * * * · · ) DVD Rating: ( * * * * * )
This movie was rated my the majority of Alien fans as the one that ruined the series. If you vote it against what they SHOULD have done, I could see the bad rating, but as far as what they DID do, it wasnt really that bad. This time around, Riply battles a superalien on a world of prisoners who have found God in the ass-end of space. The real problem is the major downer of a beginning, and the fact that it never lifts up. This is a hard ass film. The characters are very well developed, the world is very fitting to the style they set out to build. The suspense is as strong as any of them. The DVD like the first two is 16x9 enhanced and Dolby Digital 5.1 with some very cool effects. There is a making of feature also included on the disc. Overall, a moderately decent successor that could have been a lot more, but stands on its own quite well. Definitely worth picking up in the Alien Legacy boxed set.
