Before the credit roll ends, Fincher manages to sever all audience connection (read: emotional link) with the story and characters and unveils a massive plot hole in his own film's story that goes un-addressed for the duration. And then when things get started, gives us a really boring horror movie.
I had only seen it once in theaters, but it was on TV one day a few months ago (caught it from the alien birthing sequence and watched it through). If anything, it was worse than I remembered. Perhaps I was still butthurt from Prometheus being such garbage, and as a fanboi was still in a fragile mental state. But it struck me how monstrously bad Alien 3 was as I was watching.
