First-time director David Fincher disowned the film, stating in 2009 that "to this day, no one hates it more than me". He cited constant studio interference, and actually walked out of production when the studio ordered re-shoots. He was not involved with final editing, but he had delivered a rough cut that became the basis for the 'Assembly Cut', a longer version of the movie later released on DVD and Blu-ray. Fincher did not personally work on this Assembly Cut, and stated that he has no comments on it, as he has never seen it. See more »
Early in the film the interior of the EEV is a mess, having been smashed up by the crash. However, as the movie progresses, it seems to be in a better and better condition and at the end it seems to be almost intact. It is not a plausible explanation that the interior of the wreckage was cleared up by the inmates on Fury 161 when they were removing the bodies of the rest of the crew and possibly looking for salvage because there is no point that they restore the neuroscanner and the related equipment since (as it is mentioned several times throughout the movie) they have neither the technology nor the knowledge required for any sophisticated equipment.

The 20th Century Fox fanfare that plays during the opening studio logo segues ominously into the score of the film. See more »
The long delayed sequel to James Camerons Aliens turned out to be a mediocore affair. I remember going to the local movie theater in my teens to see this film with my brother and I was so dissapointed. It just seemed like an inferiour rehash of the first film. No characters to feel a true sympathy for (though Charles Dance's character gets more depth in the new special edition release). Watching the documentary that comes along with the new re-releae you can plainly see the rough time the producers and writers, etc. had in coming up with a story for the third film. In the end what we got was a brave effort but a failure in comparison with the first two films. The fourth one in the series was a better return to form for me anyway.
