Another late review but let’s not dwell on that because I’ve finally posted. Also, spoilers for this 26-year-old movie.
This is the third Alien movie: Alien³. To be honest I hardly payed attention, I still knew what the fuck happened, but I wasn’t concentrating. I think I’m either really sick of ‘alright’ movies about extra terrestrials or this movie is just boring. Just like the last two movies everything visual is beyond incredible; it’s all super detailed, feels genuine and man it makes me want to explore that shit, BUT the story stays the same. Mostly. It goes: here is an alien, oh look the alien is killing people, some people want it dead, some people (Weyland-Yutani guys) want it alive to study and make some fat bucks out of. Wow this is very original, which, by the way, is obviously me being sarcastic. But some of the only bits I like from this movie was the fact Ripley had a little alien boi growing in her chest. In a world where we have completely untouchable heroes I find it refreshing when one either slowly becomes the problem or just straight up dies.
Although this movie wasn’t amazing and is nowhere near as good as the second and is completely incomparable to the original, I feel it would have been the perfect end to Ripley’s story. She dies doing what she knows is right and we all know she has most likely saved a fuck tonne of people. She dies a hero before she (in an alien way) becomes the villain. This would have been especially fitting as they put in her final words from the original “This is Ripley, Last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off.”
Anyway, it’s boring but not that bad. Shame they had to ruin the ending by making a sequel. •
