An unworthy sequel!,
This review is from: Alien 3 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Well judging from some of the reviews I see the nihilists are out in full force to try and defend this turkey, that sent the "Alien" franchise into a downward spiral. The problems start right off the bat with this movie. An alien egg is somehow on board the Sulaco military ship with no explanation as to how it got there. All the surviving cast from "Aliens" accept Ripley are needlessly killed off in the first 10 minutes. Making their struggles and heroics in the last film a total waste of time. We also go back to 1 alien running around killing everyone, which we've already seen before. Compounded by the fact that most of the characters are a bunch of bald criminals on a prison planet, so we really have no sympathy for them when the alien starts picking them off. There are a few things I did like about this movie. The sets have an amazing gothic look. Some of the camera work is very artistic and I like the idea of the alien coming out of a animal host and taking on some of its characteristics. However! A few undigested pieces of candy in a turd doesn't change the fact that their in a turd. If your a fan of the first two "Alien" films do yourself a favor and stop there.
