This is it, finally I have to do that last Alien movie in Special Edition with an different opening and a different ending with the exact same dialogue and with missing scenes that weren't in the original. I'd still prefer Alien Resurrection over Alien 3.

Replaces an eerily opening sequence with a cheesy one (with bad CGI) and changes the last few seconds of the ending, still the same troubled movie in-between.

a lot better then people give it. dark and scary

A little better than I remembered. Lacks the grit of the first two entries in the franchise.

Forget the theatrical version, this is the good one.

I have heard that the theatrical version of this movie was awful. The new version was not too bad but it was quite bizarre at times.

Complete waste of time, the franchise should of stopped at Alien 3.

Everything from the first Alien, a crew of misfits sorta arguing with one another throughout, a dark spaceship to explore the way out of, military and scientists way out of control, and finally, a horde of killer land sharks with two sets of teeth and feet to boot, acid blood, and a nasty attitude. I liked it again (despite all the weird Ripley loving on the Alien sequences ... what was that all about?)

The plot makes no sense what so ever and feels like more of a cash in more than anything.

En "Alien", Ridley Scott crea una historia de terror acerca del mal interior. En "Aliens", James Cameron la convierte en una historia de acción sobre los cazadores y las presas. David Fincher la vuelve una cínica metáfora sobre el virus del SIDA. Y ahora Jean-Pierre Jeaunet, la convierte en un cuento cruel acerca de los miedos de la mujer: miedo a ser imitada, miedo a ser superada, miedo a ser violada, miedo a quedar embarazada y miedo a tener a un hijito insoportable. Los psicoanalistas deben poner mucha atención: "Alien" actualiza los complejos de Edipo y Electra de una manera brutal. Jeaunet se aprovecha del diseño perverso de H.R. Giger, para mostrarnos de manera definitiva que el "Alien" es en verdad un falo sediento de poder.

The end was pretty disturbing :|

Tämähän oli aika paska. Sigourney Weaver on hyvä näyttelijä, mutta muuten ihan B-sarjaa. Tässä hyvä esimerkki miksei teinitähti Winona Ryderista lopulta koskaan tullu mitään. Ihan höpö höpö koko pätkä. Mutta 2 tähteä, koska Alien.

I own this on DVD and on Blu-Ray in a four movie pack along with:
* Alien (1979)
* Aliens (1986)
* Alien3 (1992)

The best thing about this flick is the half alien Ripley clone, very creepy. But some of the other scenes are comical, bad casting too.

Little better than the first

200 years after the death of Ellen Ripley she is cloned by yet more misguided scientists in order to breed the species for their research on board a military vessel. Alien 3 tried to follow the template of the first film with some flawed success and Alien Resurrection does the same for its sequel Aliens with similar results. The very contrived premise is one that you have to accept considering Ripley died at the end of the previous film but the whole alien hybrid concept is a little harder to swallow. Joss Whedon actually disowned the script after various studio rewrites but it does have some very nice moments; particularly the scene in which Ripley confronts "herself" and the idea of self aware androids consumed with self loathing. Jeunet also stamps his own brand of attractive visual invention on the proceedings and the effects are streets ahead of Alien 3's. The aliens also have a lot more character and the set pieces are executed with some real panache, especially the underwater pursuit that reminded me of a futuristic Poseidon Adventure! Unfortunately it falls down at the last hurdle with the afore-mentioned hybrid that's a slightly ridiculous idea and the creature itself looks rubbish. The journey there is very entertaining though and despite being the least inventive of the series it's still a creditable addition to the franchise. But inevitably, it's once again nowhere near as good as the first two. The special edition adds little to the original story to be honest, with a rather poorly judged "Men In Black" style intro and brief final scene set on Earth which you take take or leave with little impact on the overall film.

I honestly can find no difference between this and the regular version. Still have many issues with this film.
