Alien3 fails, largely due to inconsistencies with what had been established in the first two movies. First, the main character walks around with an alien in her stomach for the whole movie, whereas the character in the original had it burst out almost immediately after waking up. In this installment, she runs around freely for the majority of the movie. Also, the Oscar nod for visual effects is deceptive because the alien appears neon green in full body shots, but very dark green, almost gray, in close-ups. However, there are some nice shots and it's an entertaining movie overall; just not one that warrants a recommendation.
