During some test screenings, many people had to leave the theatre and go to the bathroom due to loud and low frequencies in the sound effects and music. 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 »

During this movie I found watching the inside of my eyelids much more appealing. Something was just plain wrong about the whole movie. The biggest problem was that I didn't care about any of the characters but Ripley. This film was made in between the use of actual puppets and good computer animation (which is still obvious). That means that many times the Alien looked very fake. I thought the monster was more realistic in the original Alien.
Nothing was suspenseful of scary about this movie. The Alien point of view ruins the mystery and suspense of the Alien. I don't want to see what the Alien is seeing, what's the fun in that? I don't want to know where its going, I just want to be surprised.
Also, Ripley crashing on a planet of double Y chromosome rapists was immediately lame. Also, the doctor's little sob story made me wanna stop the movie right there. This movie had all the elements of a cheezy blockbuster, an embarrassment to the series. Because of this film, I'll probably never rent Alien: Resurrection. I can't even imagine the far-fetched, pathetic way Ripley comes back. I heard that Jeunet directed that film without knowing how to speak English to the cast. As the Godfather and Star Wars series' pointed out, three's a crowd. This is not an exception. 6/10
