This is where the down fall started!
The story in Alien3 is fairly compelling but it would have been better if it did not involve the Ripley character or any of the survivors of James Cameron's masterpiece Aliens (Hicks, Newt, Bishop). It takes every thing that Ripley fought for and struggled against in Aliens and flushes it right down the toilet. Plus... it contains one of the biggest movie flaws in history (for me). When and how did the Queen have time to lay an egg on the Sulaco? At the end of Aliens she came out of the landing gear of the drop ship and does battle with Ripley... that's it end of story. The Queen also ripped away from her egg sack while still on LV426... so how could she have laid an egg anyway! Bad story telling for sure. Alien3 is a film I will erase from my brain. I only recognize Alien and Aliens as the only two legitimate entries into the Alien saga... and if I want to go further than that... I will pick up my copies of the outstanding Dark Horse comic series 'Aliens Earth War'. The Earth War series is what Alien3 should have been.Was this review helpful?
