Gorgeous sets and another great turn from Weaver vie with a repetative and desperate structure. It also commits an unforgivable sin by rendering the events of the first two films utterly irrelevant.

...every bit as bad as the first two movies were good. Just pretend the last two sequels didn't happen. (Alien Quadrilogy)

Those looking for thrills or some enhancement to the first films will be very disappointed. Those looking for a headache will have come to the right place.

There are a few narrative twists, but not enough new ideas to keep us guessing. In the end, we're stuck running through air shafts and corridors again.

May satisfy fans of the earlier films ... but it won't win any new converts.

Ironically, Alien 3 is not a bad movie. In fact -- here's the rub -- it's too interesting to make an exciting summer flick.

A grimly seductive end-of-the-world thriller, with pop-tragic overtones that build in resonance as the movie goes on.
