Dull reboot of the franchise has a random group of strangers wake up on a foreign planet populated by multiple numbers of the alien killer that once gave Schwarzenegger a run for his money. Getting a better look at their assemblage (an ex-con, a soldier, a doctor, etc), they realize that they were actually put together with care and precision and that there is a reason that they have been placed in this life or death situation. Despite a wonderful setting and a clever, fun plot that simplifies Ten Little Indians, this one falls flat almost from the get-go thanks to bad writing and dull characterizations that are not overcome by good visual effects. It is best left to only the most forgiving and dedicated of sci-fi/action film fans.
