After her last encounter, Ellen Ripley crash-lands on Fiorina 161, a maximum security prison. When a series of strange and deadly events occur shortly after her arrival, Ripley realizes that she has brought along an unwelcome visitor.
200 years after her death, Ellen Ripley is revived as a powerful human/alien hybrid clone. Along with a crew of space pirates, she must again battle the deadly aliens and stop them from reaching Earth.
Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team after being in hypersleep for 57 years. The moon that the Nostromo visited has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, colonial marines have impressive firepower, but will that be enough?
During an archaeological expedition on Bouvetøya Island in Antarctica, a team of archaeologists and other scientists find themselves caught up in a battle between the two legends. Soon, the team realize that only one species can win.
Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) is the only survivor when she crash lands on Fiorina 161, a bleak wasteland inhabited by former inmates of the planet's maximum security prison. Once again, Ripley must face skepticism and the alien as it hunts down the prisoners and guards. Without weapons or modern technology of any kind, Ripley leads the men into battle against the terrifying creature.
The miniature of the coastline, seen when the EEV is plummeting towards the planet, was given a sickly green hue. This was to suggest that the area was polluted from decades of industrial spilling, an idea left over from an earlier screenplay in which the prison facility had been modified for use as a toxic waste dump.

The extended cut from the "Alien Quadrilogy" DVD Set does not include all of the footage from the work print. There are at least 5-10 minutes from that version that weren't re-edited for the new DVD box set:
In the scene where prisoner Murphy becomes the alien's first victim in the vent shaft, he is singing a different tune than that heard in the theatrical version and there is no mention of the dog. He simply peers into the tunnel.
A few more scenes of 85 and Ripley arguing about what the company will do with the alien.
Shots of Dillon walking through corridors and finding bodies (Troy) as well as Ripley finding bodies (Eric) and verbally identifying them.
Jude slips, falls and cuts himself with the scissors he was holding.
85 silently meditating with his head bowed down as he awaits the company people.
When the company reps arrive, it is extended as the Asian rep asks 85 if he's seen the beast, and 85 says yes and that Ripley has one inside her. Bishop II replies, "We know that." When 85 sees the cage he tells them "You're gonna need a bigger cage."
When Ripley is trying to lure the alien back into the piston, she keeps telling it to kill her.
Right before activating the sprinklers and killing the alien, Ripley says "For the last time..." (this shot is seen in several of the film's trailers).
When Ripley tells Morse to help her and he asks "What do you want me to do?", she replies "You'll know..."
After Ripley falls, Morse crawls over to look out into the molten pit.
The last scenes are arranged a little different, with the video screen facility closed shot coming before the shot of the empty cryotubes and Ripley's transmission being heard.
Alien³ takes everything from the first two films and obliterates it. They tried way to hard to scare people by putting in all sorts of gore and showing the Alien everywhere. As I have said in my reviews of Halloween, gore does not equal scary and sadly the makers of this movie could not realize this. The story is good but is dragged down plot holes that occur all throughout the film. While there is some good acting, there are no interesting characters except for Riply (the writers saw to that didn't they). This film seriously lacked the horror of the first film and the action of the second. Where was James Cameron when we needed him?
