A valiant attempt at correcting the sins of two flawed films by combining them into one less flawed film. Loved the intercut scenes of both film’s action sequences, the reveal of how Ripley 8 came to be, and the idea to both cover up some not so stellar special effects and link both films visually using black and white but ultimately I feel this cut removes far to much content leading to neither film getting much attention. Adding a bit more from Alien 3 would fix most of my issues and if someone did a fanedit of this fanedit I think it could really work. Cool in concept and worth watching for that alone but not unflawed. I still enjoyed my time with it and recommend it for anyone looking for a weird yet welcome edition to your Alien franchise experience.
