Alien 3 Review
I don't actually hate this film like some do and it feel that there's some redeeming qualities within the film. With that said, it is much different than the other too and suffered a great deal from production issues and studio intervention.
It opens in a very tragic manner as we realize that everyone's dead save for Ripley. As said on Screen Junkies Movie Fights, it's like if Han Solo just died in carbonite and we had no warning of it.
The prisoners are unique and I found the whole Lice problem to be an interesting aspect as well. The whole idea of an alien growing out of a dog is really neat and shows the adaptivity of the Xenomorph species.
It sucks that David Fincher's true vision could never be fully realized due to studio intervention and production problems.
Out of all the prisoners, Dillon was probably the most memorable for me. His line to Ripley "Take off. I gotta re-educate some of the brothers!" is ironically hilarious considering I'm pretty sure this man is dead after being beaten.
I also liked the quote "You're all gonna die. The only question is how you check out. Do you want it on your feet? Or on your f#%€in knees...begging? So I say f*ck that thing! Let's fight it!" Which is true for a hell hole with lice, no women and a dang Xenomorph chasing after you.
I enjoy the ending the most as I thought it was kind of cool seeing the scientists coming in to take Ripley and the queen growing inside of her. Though it never works out, for the better, I enjoyed seeing Ripley (spoiler) jump into the raging fires with her little queen bursting out of her stomach. Even better is the grim tidbit towards the very end where you have a new spin on the typical Alien movie ending as you learn the shuttle will be scrapped.
I can surely say it's not nearly as bad as many say it is. It's pretty good for what it is, I'd give it a 3.5/5
