A group of scientists has cloned Lt. Ellen Ripley, along with the alien queen inside her, hoping to breed the ultimate weapon. But the resurrected Ripley is full of surprises for her "creators," as are the aliens they've imprisoned. And soon, a lot more than "all hell" breaks loose. To combat the creatures, Ripley must team up with a band of smugglers, including a mechanic named Call (Ryder), who holds more than a few surprises of her own.
Perhaps these films are like the Star Trek movies: The even-numbered episodes are the best ones. Certainly this film (directed by French stylist Jean-Pierre Jeunet) is an improvement over Alien 3, with a script that breathes exciting new life into the franchise. This chapter is set even further in the future, where scientists on a space colony have cloned both the alien and Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), who died in Alien 3; in doing so, however, they've mixed alien DNA with Ripley's human chromosomes, which gives Ripley surprising power (and a bad attitude). A band of smugglers comes aboard only to discover the new race of aliens--and when the multi-mouthed melonheads get loose, no place is safe. But, on the plus side, they have Ripley as a guide to help them get out. Winona Ryder is on hand as the smugglers' most unlikely crew member (with a secret of her own), but this one is Sigourney's all the way. --Marshall Fine
did not notice before that the writer was Joss Whedon. This is my favorite Alien film. Very strong female figures with very clever dialogues.Published 26 days ago by Alephel
Not a terrible movie, but easily my least favorite of the 4. Why they handed the reins to Jeunet... I don't know. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Rick
Love it! Weird, creepy, gross, and takes the universe in an interesting direction.Published 2 months ago by Alan Meigs
Alien Resurrection is definitely the best film in the Alien series. It's filled with great action scenes, awesome characters, and it features a very good performance by Sigourney... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Fuwwyfootpaws
This film, really did well with the casting.
Winona did very well, including Sigourney.
It's a sequel to include in the alien set for sure.
