Sector 7 (七號異煞) (HK movie release 2011-12-8) is a Korean ripoff of Alien. Although Koreans criticized it for having poor CG, I think its CG is acceptable for a Korean production. My problem with this movie is that it is not particularly effective, the monster design is a mess and uninspired, a certain scene is really fake, the heroine’s obsession is not explained to international audience (it is a common knowledge in Korea but not elsewhere), an important portion of the movie is too dark for 3D, etc.

 

I knew that Sigourney Weaver was good in the Alien series, but after watching this ripoff, I realize that she was so good that few other heroines can come close.
