If you follow behind the scenes stories this film is one of the classic fox development hell examples. Everything that could happen wrong eventually happened with this picture. What i like about this edit is Q2 hability to draw a line between two things that shouldn't be together in reality, creating a cohesive suspense build around this mini planet prison, delivering a nice suspense film.

Alien 3 was literally my first contact with the franchise for some random reason while i was in my father's video store so it always was a weird love/hate situation for me. That being said this is probably the definitive edition of this film, worth a watch!

My definitive version of Alien 3.

Delivered in great HD quality and with restored workprint scenes that greatly enhance the experience.

A must for any Alien franchise fan.

I always thought Alien 3 was an under rated movie. I enjoyed it because I liked the return to a single Alien like in the first film and the terror it caused. I like the way it ran on the walls and ceiling because it was gestated in a dog - but then a few years later it became an ox and I thought - hang on an ox is nowhere near as nimble as a dog! This edit fixes that and more!

Q2 has created what I always hoped Alien 3 would be, a riveting and terrifying tale that holds true to Ridley Scott's original. About the only thing I held back a point on was for video quality - and I'm being high maintenance with this score because I've been lucky enough to buy a 70 inch flatscreen so if something isn't quite clear I will see it. I compared it to my 1080p original and it definitely showed - but if you have a smaller screen then it will look superb.

Well done Q2 for another excellent fan edit.

Menu:

The menus are rather plain and generic. The chapter menu is basic with only “Chapter 1″, “Chapter 2″, “Chapter 3″ etc. for the menu buttons. No little video boxes or names for the chapters.

Rating: 3/5

Audio:

The copy I have only has 2.0 audio but thunderclap has rectified that and this version now has 5.1 sound so I’m giving this an extra point. It does however lose a point because every now and then throughout the movie I’d hear the occasional crackling noise, like the kind you’d hear from an LP.

Rating: 4/5

Video:

Picture looked great. No complains.

Rating: 5/5

Editing:

No noticeable cuts. The editing was seamless.

Rating: 5/5

Entertainment:

I didn’t enjoy this any more than the original but I also didn’t like it any less. Don’t take this as a knock against thunderclap or this edit because I’m one of the few people who actually love the original film.

Rating: 5/5

Overall Rating: 9/10
