Science Fiction • R • 1992 • 1 hr 54 min
A highly under-appreciated film with a depressing, nihilistic, oppressive atmosphere that may put the typical movie-viewers off.
The bleakest, darkest, cynical and ballsiest in the franchise. In true Fincher fashion, its not afraid to put the protagonists through hell.
Good sci-fi horror drama movie, not quite as good as the first two but still a interesting Alien movie that’s well worth watching for fans
Suffers from pacing issues and the story in general is a mess, but still delivers some good action and the special effects are fantastic.
Takes the series down the avenue of becoming terrible. The action, acting and characters aren’t as good as the first 2. 2/10
Surprisingly good given all the studio interference
Has some great moments, but overall the story falls flat. Easily the worst of the Alien trilogy (we don't talk about Alien 4).
the beginning 5 minutes made the final moments of aliens pointless but was good. Heard pro choice storyline but happily I didn’t get that.
This would already be a bad movie, with terrible CGI, boring writing, and a very non-scary vibe, but it’s worse given its epic predecessor.
Loved the idea and confined space of the prison!
During its return to the earth, commercial spaceship Nostromo intercepts a distress signal from a distant planet. When a three-member team of the crew discovers a chamber containing thousands of eggs on the planet, a creature inside one of the eggs attacks an explorer. The entire crew is unaware of the impending nightmare set to descend upon them when the alien parasite planted inside its unfortunate host is birthed.
When Ripley's lifepod is found by a salvage crew over 50 years later, she finds that terra-formers are on the very planet they found the alien species. When the company sends a family of colonists out to investigate her story—all contact is lost with the planet and colonists. They enlist Ripley and the colonial marines to return and search for answers.
After escaping with Newt and Hicks from the alien planet, Ripley crash lands on Fiorina 161, a prison planet and host to a correctional facility. Unfortunately, although Newt and Hicks do not survive the crash, a more unwelcome visitor does. The prison does not allow weapons of any kind, and with aid being a long time away, the prisoners must simply survive in any way they can.
Two hundred years after Lt. Ripley died, a group of scientists clone her, hoping to breed the ultimate weapon. But the new Ripley is full of surprises … as are the new aliens. Ripley must team with a band of smugglers to keep the creatures from reaching Earth.
