    Space isn't always happy and cozy.

    I have always felt that Alien 3 did an amazing job with atmosphere. For once there weren't loveable characters to get lost in. This was real, gritty, and viceral. The way it should be. Don't get me wrong, Alien and Aliens were wonderful films. The latter being a favorite of mine. Alien 3 just pulled us from our euphoric cloud to a world that is not so forgiving. The alien in this film was a nice departure, being quadrepedal and everything. The ending is very emotional, especially if you didn't know Alien:Resurrection existed. This really is a great film and I suggest buying it and loving it just as you should the previous films.

    Not as good as the first 2, but still really good.

    Alien 3 was still a good movie, but not as good as the other 2. It was really slow the first 1/3 of the movie, but after that, it was amazing. But the other 2 were amazing throughout the whole movie.

    A beautiful, if flawed, film

    The cinematography is uniformly superb, and while you can accuse it of a number of crimes, you can't accuse it of being unoriginal. I left the theater astounded after my first viewing, and for that alone I would recommend the film. And the quoted review from Robert Firsching reveals an astonishing level of ignorance. Ripley is in obvious agony throughout the excruciating, but masterfully constructed, autopsy scene. What is more, the alien in the film was created using practical elements (marionettes and costumes, if I recall correctly) in nearly all, if not all, of its scenes. I'd recommend Mr. Firsching keep his eyes on the screen more and on his notepad less, and that he do his homework before reflexively bashing the 'unconvincing CGI'.

    Alien 3: not as good as it's predacesors but better than most movies ever made.

    Alien 3 might not be as good as Alien and Aliens but it is better than most movies in general. The story line adds on a unique twist to the series. A superb ending.
