Review: Before I watched Alien 3, I looked up some reviews and basically everyone bashed it. Now I don’t think that this is a great film but I do believe Alien 3 was a decent movie. You can kind of say I have mixed feelings about this movie, but I do feel like it’s a movie you can try out. Worse case scenario you turn the movie off if it’s really boring you. Hopefully you can enjoy Aliens 3!
The story for Alien 3 was decent at best. This story mainly focuses on Ripley, who once again has traveled 200 years into the future and is now in this high security prison, awaiting for a rescue team. The story has some good twists and would have actually been a great end to the Alien franchise, had they ended it after Alien 3.How was the acting? The acting in Alien 3 was somewhat okay. Sigourney Weaver was great in the film, but her supporting cast was horrific. I really didn’t feel a connection with any of the actors and at times they kind of make you get bored. They’re acting just wasn’t all that catchy and you probably will get bored watching them.
Alien 3 did have some pretty good scenes when it came to horror and thrills. What I realized with Alien 3 is that this movie kind of tries to embed the first two films into this one. The slow buildup of the monster and the action scenes from the second alien. The only thing I can say is that this movie had better gore and way more blood then in the second alien movie. There were a good number of kills and the kill scenes were pretty bad ass, so one can say that the movie did deliver in this area. Overall I thought that Alien 3 was a decent addition to the Alien franchise that can be somewhat enjoyable. The story was okay, but it kind of felt repetitive if you look back to the first two films. It did have its moments, which made me think it was good, but overall it was decent. The acting was pretty bad, besides Weaver’s performance. Everyone else kind of made me want to fall asleep. The movie thrived with its action/thrills/horror scenes and the good amount of blood and kills that Alien 3 contained. If you haven’t seen Alien 3 I would recommend that you watch it, because it was a decent addition to the series. The ending was actually pretty good and could have ended after this film. Just give it a try, it wont hurt.
