Just at the point when Alien 3 should kick into high terror gear, it becomes clear that this hushed, somber sequel doesn't know how to deliver the goods.

It suffers from poor supporting performances, and a plot that splutters instead of pushing on; but when the chase is on, all is forgiven.

For all its inherent structural problems, Alien remains a worthy intended conclusion to the series, finding its true resolution in Ripley's resolve to break the endless cycle of her torment.

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.

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.

May 2, 2011
Too conceptually disjointed to live in the imagination after it's over, like its predecessors.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
September 9, 2010
Grim, nihilistic sequel in none-too-cheery series.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
March 25, 2010
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.
| Original Score: 3/5
April 20, 2006
The movie is dramatically flawed, but in his feature debut David Fincher shows a lot of promise for better things to come, especially when visuals and tone are concerned.

Good acting has salvaged many a poor script in the past, but not here.
July 31, 2005
Tournure inattendue trop souvent sous-estime, Alien pourrait bien tre en fait la suite la plus accomplie d'une saga incontournable.

January 28, 2004
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.
January 1, 2004
The advertisements promise '3 times the suspense. 3 times the danger. 3 times the terror.' The only thing Alien3 has triple of is the word 'f--k.'
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
December 15, 2003
The soulless Alien is essentially an amalgam of power shots.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
November 6, 2003
Flashy, flawed sequel that doesn't deliver the chills of the first or the thrills of the second
| Original Score: 2/5
September 29, 2003
Manages to get the job done if you temper your expectation to a modest level.
