This is a good edit, I really think you tried to fix this film the best you possibly could (its pretty sad that the Workprint is better than the final product here), and I respect that.

But the film is beyond repair, and it isnt your fault as an editor either. This film shouldnt have been made, and I know some people actually like it, but I don’t, and I knew I still wouldn’t enjoy it going in. Again, not your fault. An editor cant fix every frame of a film – because they would have to make a new film (obviously), and it just isn’t possible lol!

To fans of Alien3, I think that you’ll probably really like this edit, it adds more to the film than I expected (even though you simply cant fix this in my eyes), and my cousin who likes Alien3 actually enjoyed it much more than the original film. I would recommend this, but only to fans of Alien3.

For me, in my biased opinion, the film itself will always be a 1-3/10, the edit itself however, gets an 8.5/10 because it does what it says it does, and it does it relatively well too.

ELBARTO1 said before that the audio is just slightly out of sync at times, and I noticed this too, thankfully it probably wont be very distracting to an uneducated eye. The features are a must for any fan of the series (myself included). I do feel that this edit is more bearable than the original for sure, it raises my rating from 1/10 to about 3/10. I still don’t like the film very much, but as I said before, it would have to basically be a different movie for me to enjoy it.

Good job, and here’s hoping we see more from you in the future Xeno_Alpha_07!

Final verdict: 8.5/10
