? Can you catch a 22 ¿

  • Feb 11, 2002
I was on fire after I watched Alien's, and couldn't wait to put the next installment into the dvd player. But, my friends, I couldn't get over the first five minutes. In those few moment's, it successfully grab's the entire purpose of the second film and throws it into the trash. I understand that by the time 3 came out the young girl (actress) was much too old to appear as young as she was before cryo-sleap. But, why kill her off? And the robot. Why? The soldier who was developing a crush on Ripley. Why? All dead. That made me so out of whack that I just couldn't enjoy the movie. I sat there perplexed in hopes that there would be something better in store for Ripley to take the place of her loss, or if even, to create something more exciting for the story line. I didn't feel the same tensity that was so dominant in the first two films. And coming from the director of Se7en, I am really surprised that the darkness couldn't have overcome that fault. Darkness in a film doesn't mean grit and gore, it means putting together the pieces of a puzzle in a mysterious circumastance. Not found here.

Ripley is marooned with a bunch of religious skin heads that even though are supposed to be under a law of purification, use more "f" words than anything found in all the other films combined. (I thought that was funny and sad, wierd huh.) Anyway, as formula begat formula, anyone that tries to become close to Ripley in any shape form or fashion gets torn into gushy pieces. It became predictable after a while. - Someone is nice to Ripley - They get their face ripped off. I thought I was a psychic by the time the movie was over. Ripley shaves her head, and looks pretty cool. And no matter how much they tried, when you have a bucket-ful of alien's in the previous movie, One single alien (mutanized or not) just doesn't do the trick anymore. Been there - Done that - Seen that.

If your on a mission to watch all of the Alien movies, then by all mean's watch it. But more than likely (if you share my opinion's) you will be sadly disappointed.
