Good acting has salvaged many a poor script in the past, but not here.

Alien 3 belongs to that branch of fantasy comics, best exemplified by the Road Warrior movies, in which the iron and space ages meet for dizzy results.

The general perception was that, since [Fincher's] film was not Aliens, it was not any good. But it's an amazing film on many levels, switching 180 degrees to a grungy, dreary mood.

It all happens - with equal confusion and intrigue - under the umbrella of a low-tech style so chilling in its presence that it becomes a character all on its own.

A large step down from the original two films, the third is still entertaining and iconic.

Its my least favorite of the series and dosent deliver like the other two did, but Director, David Fincher does a fine job in the directing chair just the story is not the best.

I understand when people were disappointed with this film due to some of its ideas. However, I do believe that as a stand alone film, its impressive.But overall,although Alien 3 isn't the strongest in the Alien franchise, it deserves its place as part of it and doesn't deserve its constant panning.
