William Gibson’s Alien 3 (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review
Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
William Gibson’s Alien 3 is not a film. No it’s an Amazon Audible original production, which takes William Gibson’s original Alien 3 script and converts it into a fully dramatised audio drama, even bring back original cast members Michael Biehn (Hicks) and Lance Henriksen (Bishop). And it works. Really well. I’ve always loved Alien 3, watching it probably more than any other Alien film growing up and this third version (Studio Cut, ‘Assembly’ Cut as the two others) gives a fascinating ‘what if’ look at the story which shares some very similar elements with the released version. At under two hours it doesn’t outstay it’s welcome and the production values are surprisingly high. Well worth signing up to a free trial to grab a listen.
Best Bit: Biehn! Henriksen!
Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream (Audible)
