4.0 out of 5 stars The directors cut did restore the movie, 9 Oct 2013
This review is from: Alien 3 - Definitive Edition [DVD] (DVD)
When this movie first came out it was a letdown because the negative tune the movie gave and also it did not help that the characters in this film are all life sentence prisoners who committed the crime rape, murder, and child molesting.
But after a couple of years the movie start to grow and now it is a classic and one of the favorite alien movies with Aliens and Alien. And since the new version of this film came on DVD the story in this film has now been restored

The story begins with Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) wake up from her cryo sleep only to find out that her escape shuttle has crashed on a prison colony planet and her friends Hicks and Newt are dead and the droid Bishop (Lance Henriksen) is smashed and cannot be repaired.
She get greets by dr. Clements (Charles Dance) to tell her the prisoners are all murderers and rapist and haven't seen a woman in years.
But the situation get worse when Ripley find out that an alien got onboard her escaped shuttle and is now killing the prisoners one by one, now she must join forces with the prisoners to fight back against the monster, the good news is the prisoners are willing to fight with her, the bad news is there are no weapons of any kind....

In the director's cut we see more scenes that make sense, you get to know the characters better, and get to understand the situation of living in that planet.
The only nitpick I have is in the new version, the alien burst out from an ox and that doesn't make sense because this alien is supposed to be like an animal with hunt instincts, in the original cut it burst out from a dog, and that makes more sense because dogs has hunt instincts but that just a small nitpick

This movie is one of the best Alien movies and the whole thing should have ended with this movie
