Product Description

Lt. Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) is the lone survivor when her crippled spaceship crash lands on Fiorina 161, a bleak wasteland inhabited by former inmates of the planet's maximum security prison. Ripley's fears that an Alien was aboard her craft are confirmed when the mutilated bodies of ex-cons begin to mount. Without weapons or modern technology of any kind, Ripley must lead the men into battle against the terrifying creature. And soon she discovers a horrifying fact about her link with the Alien, a realization that may compel Ripley to try destroying not only the horrific creature but herself as well.

Amazon.com

The least successful film in this series was directed by stylemaster (and content-underachiever) David Fincher. Ripley, the only survivor of her past mission, awakens on a prison planet in the far corners of the solar system. As she tries to recover, she realizes that not only has an alien gotten loose on the planet, the alien has implanted one of its own within her. As she battles the prison authorities (and is aided by the prisoners) in trying to kill the alien, she must also cope with a distinctly shortened lifespan that awaits her. But the striking imagery makes for muddled action and the script confuses it further. The ending looks startling but it takes a long time--and a not particularly satisfying journey--to get there. --Marshall Fine

Customer Reviews

Ripley, having escaped with Newt in "Aliens" lands on a prison planet.
Peter Lee
`Alien 3' is probably one of the weaker films in the Alien series, but saying that it is still a good sci-fi film and worth a watch at some point.
Spider Monkey
It's hard for me to write a review for this movie because there were so many things I just didn't like about it.

ALIEN 3 was disliked so much. To all the people who hated this movie, I would like you to give it a second chance and watch the Special Edition version of the movie. There are 30 minutes of restored footage that really helped fill in the plot holes. There is more depth with Golic showing his relationship with the prisoners, how he gets caught, how he gets loose, and how he dies. There is about 8-10 extra minutes added after the fire starts and before Dillon finds a prisoner's throat cut. There is one more thing ALIEN 3 didn't do. They didn't show how Eric died! Eric started up the piston and we never saw him again. Anyway, ALIEN 3 SE gets 5 stars and is my favorite movie in the ALIEN series.
The theatrical version of the movie was pretty good. The alternative begining on Fiorina 161 was better and you got to see the outside of the planet. Instead, for the TR, they made it more simple. The ending in the theatrical version was also different. The Queen chestburster came out of Ripley. The other different thing about the movie was the alien came out of a dog, it was an ox in the Special Edition. The theatrical version and Special Edition were different ins so many ways. The Special Edition of the movie made ALIEN 3 a more likeable movie and some ALIEN fans are getting a better view of the movie. The special features disc is packed with 164 miutes of featurettes! There are also the different theatrical trailers and TV spots. The still photo galleries and the story boards are also on the DVD. In the supplementary part of the first disc, you can use deleted footage markers, turn on commentaries, and view the deleted scenes(only on theatrical version supplement.) You can also use Dolby 5.1 for your audio and have English or Spanish subtitles. This DVD is awesome, and I wou;d recomend it to any ALIEN or sci-fi fan!

I remember the long wait between the release of this movie and "Aliens" and the great amount of anticipation that was built up around this movie considering how extraordinary the first two films were and just imagining how great this one was "going" to be. Then its release date came and it received generally bad reviews and collectively, the majority of the fans were highly disappointed by it, including myself. That being said, I was quite reluctant to spend the money on this DVD but after reading some of the other positive reviews I decided to give this film one more chance and now, after having watched it again I would have to say I've completely changed my mind.
Alien 3 just wasn't as bad as I remembered it to be from that one time viewing in the theater so many years ago and in fact, stylistically, it's a movie that was ahead of its time. Ultimately, I think what turned so many people off of this film when it was released is that it was so dramatically different from the first two that it initially just didn't seem as though it belonged in the mythos that is the Alien legacy. The one thing about this film that does make it drag is its pacing. What the director appeared to be reaching for was the same feel that "Alien" engendered but in the end, in reaching for that intense atmosphere didn't always work and only resulted in the pace slowing down and too little suspense. As stated above though, thematically it was just years ahead of its time and I believe, were it a movie that were originally released more recently, with some minor changes, it might've garnered much more success in the theaters.

Alien 3 is the most under-appreciated of the Alien Saga. Let me start by saying if you didn't like alien 3, DON'T BLAME DAVID FINCHER (director)! This was Fincher's first big film he directed and he was pushed into its direction by FOX who really just wanted to continue the saga *cough greedy fat cats cough*. Fincher was pushed into the production with almost no script at all. Alien 3 was doomed since day 1, if you ask me, Fincher saved Alien 3, sure he had to make a few sacrifices (characters from Aliens) but If you ask me, Alien 3 is the best of all the Alien movies.

The movie raises a few questions: How did that egg get on the ship in the first place? How could they kill off two valuable characters like that? How could they just shave Ripley bald? Well i will now address the questions: First, the egg........um, my only explination is that the evil FOX executives put it there to keep the series going, as for the killing the Aliens characters, I already told you there was major script problems (this may also be an explination for the egg) but hey, who neads them? they would only slow Ripley down, especially that little nerd Newt, what kind of nick name was that? Oh and by the way, there were THREE characters from Aliens lost, what about Bishop? What is he chop alumminum? He was the best of the three which is probably why we got to see him later in the film. And as for Ripley being bald, the prison has a problem with lice, and what is everyone's problem, Ripley looks hot with a shaved head!

Which sequel is worse, Alien 3 or Resurrection?
Alien Resurrection is horrendous. Poorly directed, pretty boring by most action movie standards, and it really amounts to nothing more than a bad B-movie if it didn't have the Alien name tied to it.

Alien 3 was certainly a disappointing theatrical release. However, the assembly cut found on the... Read More
