    Not that bad, Not that good…

    The first time i saw Alien 3 I was more than a little disappointed, but
    a few years have passed and having watched it again (and the 'Assembly
    Cut' from the Box Set) it has actually grown on me! Its dark, bleak,
    depressing stuff. Looking more like a proper sequel to Alien than
    Aliens! The film has flaws all over, but it also has its moments, not
    to mention the best tag-line for an Alien film, 'THE BITCH IS BACK'!
    For me the series went downhill from Alien: Resurrection, with Alien 3
    holding its own up against two classic films. Its not my favourite, but
    after Cameron's sequel, I think Alien 3 is up there with the original.
    Dismiss it, but don't miss it!

    The worst of the four

    Alien and Aliens I loved, but Alien 3, I HATED IT!!!!!!!!!! I don't
    know why but it's just my least favorite out of all four movies. I just
    have a problem with the movie because they use f*** over 112 times :(
    Another problem I have is that I that the movie takes place in 2650
    which is a little to far in years.

    The whole story is just about Ripley crashing on a prison planet in
    2650 and a Facehugger, or two of them were aboard Ripley's ship and one
    had gotten on her, the other on a, DOG! Yes the alien in this movie is
    the Dog Alien who just gave me a lot of stress during the movie. After
    a series of fake looking gunfire, Ripley kills the Dog Alien, the thing
    that seemed interesting to me is that guy from Alien vs. Predator; that
    guy who was sick and was killed eventually. Ripley kills herself
    because she knows there is an alien inside her, an Alien Queen. So
    Ripley dies, BAD WAY TO END THE SAGA WITH A MOVIE SO BAD! But wait we
    still have one last hope, Alien Resurrection.

    The Final Chapter In The Alien Series And The End Of Lt. Ellen Ripley.

    *** This review may contain spoilers ***

    David Fincher gives us back the same horror we felt in Ridley Scott's
    Alien.

    The plot, special effects and acting are outstanding. The casting is
    superb and this is what lifts the film.

    Full Plot: Following the events in Aliens, the Colonial Marine
    spaceship Sulaco experiences an onboard fire and launches an escape pod
    containing Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), Newt, Hicks, and the
    damaged android Bishop who are all in cryonic stasis. During the
    launch, the ship's medical scans of the crew's cryotubes show an Alien
    facehugger attached to one of the crewmembers. The pod then crashes on
    Fiorina 'Fury' 161, a foundry facility and penal colony inhabited by
    all-male inmates with "double-Y" chromosome patterns and histories of
    physical and sexual violence. After some inmates recover the pod and
    its passengers, an Alien facehugger is seen approaching the prison dog.
    Ripley is taken in and awakened by Clemens (Charles Dance), the prison
    doctor, and is told she is the only survivor of the crash. Many of the
    ex-inmates have embraced an apocalyptic, millenarian version of
    Christianity, and Ripley is warned by the prison warden, Harold
    Andrews, (Brian Glover) that her presence among them may have extremely
    disruptive effects.

    Suspicious of what caused the escape pod to jettison and what killed
    her companions, Ripley requests that Clemens perform an autopsy on
    Newt. She fears that Newt may be carrying an Alien embryo in her body,
    though she does not share this information. Despite protests from the
    warden and his assistant, Aaron (Ralph Brown), the autopsy is conducted
    and no embryo is found in Newt's body, and Clemens proclaims she simply
    died in the crash. Meanwhile, Ripley's unusual behavior begins to
    frustrate the warden and is agitating the prisoners.

    A funeral is performed for Newt and Hicks in which their bodies are
    cremated in the facility's enormous furnace. In another section of the
    facility, the prison dog enters convulsions, and an Alien bursts from
    its body. The Alien soon begins to attack members of the colony,
    killing several and returning an outcast prisoner Golic (Paul McGann)
    to his former deranged state. To get answers, Ripley recovers and
    reactivates the damaged android Bishop, who confirms that there was an
    Alien on the Sulaco and it came with them to Fiorina in the escape pod.
    She then informs Andrews of her previous encounters with the Aliens and
    suggests everyone work together to hunt it down and kill it. Andrews
    does not believe her story and explains that the facility has no
    weapons. Their only hope of protection is the rescue ship being sent
    for Ripley by the Weyland-Yutani Corporation.

    Back in the prison infirmary, while talking to Ripley about the
    situation, Clemens is killed by the Alien, which then approaches Ripley
    but does not attempt to kill her. She runs to the mess hall to warn the
    others, only to see the Alien kill the warden. Ripley rallies the
    inmates and proposes they pour highly flammable toxic waste, which is
    stored at the facility, into the ventilation system and ignite it to
    flush out the creature. An explosion is caused by the creature's
    premature intervention, resulting in several deaths. Using the medical
    equipment onboard the Sulaco escape pod, Ripley scans herself and
    discovers the embryo of an Alien Queen growing inside her. She also
    finds out that the Corporation truly wants the Queen embryo and the
    adult Alien, hoping to turn them into biological weapons. Deducing that
    the mature alien will not kill her because of the embryo she carries,
    Ripley begs Dillon (Charles S. Dutton), the religious leader of the
    inmates, to kill her, who agrees to do so only if she helps the inmates
    kill the adult creature first. They form a plan to lure it into the
    foundry's molding facility and drown it in molten lead by trapping it
    by closing a series of doors. The bait-and-chase style plan results in
    the death of Dillon and all the remaining prisoners, except Morse
    (Danny Webb), who pours the lead. The Alien, covered in molten metal,
    escapes the mold and is killed by Ripley when she turns on fire
    sprinklers and sprays the beast with water, causing its exoskeleton to
    cool rapidly and shatter via thermal shock.

    While Ripley battles the Alien, the Weyland-Yutani team arrives,
    including a man named Michael Bishop who looks identical to the Bishop
    android, claiming to be its creator. He tries to persuade Ripley to
    undergo surgery to remove the Queen embryo, which he claims will be
    destroyed. Ripley refuses and steps back onto a mobile platform, which
    Morse positions over the furnace. The company men shoot Morse in the
    leg, and Aaron picks up a large wrench and strikes Bishop over the head
    with it, believing him to be an android. Aaron is shot dead and Bishop
    and his men show their true intentions, begging Ripley to let them have
    the "magnificent specimen". Ripley defies them by throwing herself into
    the gigantic furnace, just as the alien Queen begins to erupt from her
    chest. However, as she is dying from the wound, Ripley grabs the
    creature and holds on to it as she falls into the fire.

    The film ends with a sequence showing the facility being closed down,
    the last surviving inmate, Morse, being led away, and a shot of the
    Sulaco escape pod as the sound recording of Ripley's final lines from
    the original Alien film is heard.

    Notable Actors:

    Charles S. Dutton as inmate Dillon, the spiritual and de facto leader
    amongst the prisoners.

    Charles Dance as Jonathan Clemens, the facility's doctor.

    Brian Glover as Harold Andrews, the prison warden.

    Ralph Brown as Aaron, the assistant of Superintendent Andrews.

    Danny Webb as inmate Morse. Morse is the only survivor of the entire
    incident.

    Conclusion: 10/10. Buy and watch this superb film on your home theater.
