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.

I recognize the film fandom fury that comes with such a drastic continuation, yet there's a big brown world of unusual cinematic risk here to consume. Alien 3 remains such a potent, mesmerizing force of doom.

It's a shame that Alien 3 nearly ruined the [Alien] franchise, but that doesn't make it a bad movie, just a bad sequel.

Lessons of Darkness

A fascinating, often fantastic, film, one simultaneously indebted to and self-consciously divorced from its acclaimed predecessors in ways both clunky and inspired.

The problem lies within the weak storyline.

Tournure inattendue trop souvent sous-estime, Alien pourrait bien tre en fait la suite la plus accomplie d'une saga incontournable.

Philadelphia Weekly

Fox's DVD restoration/mea culpa of Fincher's original edit is cause for celebration. The studio cut seemed glibly nihilistic --this time when she jumps, it means something.

Manages to get the job done if you temper your expectation to a modest level.

Filled with scares. Sigourney Weaver is winning once again as a tough woman warrior.

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.

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.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Too conceptually disjointed to live in the imagination after it's over, like its predecessors.
