Somebody really should've just jacked up Sigourney's paycheck and made it another gun movie. But this time include scientists, heavy sci-fi elements, a strong Weyland Yutani presence, etc.
Instead we get some... depressing, grimy solo adventure that features interspersed attacks from a cartoon alien shape? That's how you springboard off the backs of Alien and Aliens? Alllllll righty then okay thanks Sigourney cool nice.
