Off-duty, Sigourney Weaver had to wear a wig as her then two-year-old daughter Charlotte didn't like to see her mother bald. See more »
During the montage at the start of the movie, the facehugger is presented as breaking through some glass followed by spilt acid eating through the decking and causing the cryogenic tubes to be ejected. The broken glass was directly over Ripley, so any acid spilled from the wounded facehugger should have dripped onto Ripley and scarred her horribly if not killed her outright, yet she is uninjured from the facehugger's acid blood. In fact, the 'acid burn' is along Newt's cryotube and not Ripley's tube. See more »

The 20th Century Fox fanfare that plays during the opening studio logo segues ominously into the score of the film. See more »
Did IQs drop sharply while this film was being made? How did the facehuggers get on to the Sulako? How? Watch the end of Aliens - the Queen is quite clearly NOT carrying any eggs. This is the worst type of sequel, one which undermines previous films in an attempt to eclipse them. The story for Alien3 doesn't consider Alien or Aliens at all. Unforgivably it instead does its best to wipe the slate clean killing Newt and Hicks off in the cheapest most anonymous way possible. This makes the rescue of Newt (the last 20 minutes of the fantastic and infinitely superior Aliens) totally redundant.
The sets and music are on the whole good but lack the imagination and variety of the previous two films. The CGI is dreadful, the Aliens size is inconsistent and on several occasions it looks as 2 dimensional as the plot. Also the inter crew tension from the first film and marine banter from the second film is replaced with vulgar insults exchanged between the prisoners. Its a strange coincidence that the sole convict character with any merit is the only one with an American accent. Sigourney Weaver puts in a huge effort but its not enough.
