Alien 3 (1992)

A tragically underappreciated second sequel, “Alien 3” was doomed from the start thanks to a combination of raised expectations following the crowd-pleasing “Aliens” and relentless studio interference. Nevertheless, the work that director David Fincher managed to shoot – which would later be spliced into an assembled cut in 2003 that enhances the storyline’s strengths and its audacious take on the continuing Ripley saga – is visually arresting, as well as blessed with an ominous, portentous score and an excellent performance by Sigourney Weaver.

Rating:  ★★★★ (out of 5)
