Editorial Reviews

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

Product Description

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.

What people forget when they respond to this film is that Alien 3 shut down the series, very deliberately and very conclusively. Not only did Ripley die, but the driving concerns of the series that were set up in the first film had been addressed. So there was nowhere to go but in a radically new direction, and that's what Jean-Pierre Jeunet did. While the first films used the aliens and the technological context in which they appeared to address the question what makes us specifically human, this new contribution to the series is more interested in the question of a possible "post-human" future.

In Alien the enemy was not really the monster. The monster's unique method of reproduction merely served to highlight the "human condition": that we are vulnerable, that our bodies are ill-equipped for survival except in the most congenial of circumstances, that they are subject to violation by organic and inorganic forces outside of us. The idea of being "violated" through the mouth and "impregnated" by a monster is horrible, but that possibility serves to highlight our dependency upon science and technology in order to stay alive (even her on Earth), and our increasing "alienation" through technology from the natural world and from the evolutionary struggle for survival. Ash (the robot scientist) and Mother (the artificially intelligent computer that kept them alive and gave instructions) and the Company (that treats human life as expendible) were the real enemies of Alien.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated and misunderstood June 22, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Okay, so the first Alien is the best. It always was and always will be. Aliens was an excellent sequel with high tension, drama, action, and Bill Paxton, and the really charming scene where Apone and Hicks are watching with fascination as Ripley straps into the loader, grabs a big carton, and says, "Where do you want it?" Apone (with a beautiful grin, and cigar in his fingers), "Bay 12, please." Alien 3 may have lacked the overall power of the first two, but there we see a truly grief-stricken Ripley, one ready at last to give her own life.

What makes Resurrection pay off for me is Sigourney Weaver's acting. This Ripley is a trip! She speaks in a sly, wink-wink manner, but can as easily rip your head off. Her senses are heightened, and she tears it up on the court. This hybrid Ripley, part-human/part-alien, has red acid for blood, already sees the impending doom, and seems rather amused by it all.

I find it entertaining, sly, even philosophical. Definitely worth a long look.

5.0 out of 5 stars new look and refreshing characters November 23, 1999
Well I like the alien series the way it is: entertaining sci-fi movies with the never ending fight between ripley and the aliens. The last one of the series has definitely its own identity and look. Who are the worst the humans or the aliens ? The confrontation between S weaver and W Ryder is rather cool also. The scene in the prison between those two is quite refreshing. Ah yes this one may be the goriest movie of the serie! very good movie

5.0 out of 5 stars An improvement. April 22, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is quite original! Having Ripley be part alien is one thing, but the newborn was cool too. This movie has the most emotion since Aliens. All the charachters were solid and Sigourney and Winona stole the show. See this. It's great!

3.0 out of 5 stars Ho-hum Hokum November 27, 1999
By A Customer
Okay, I admit that I am NOT a hardcore Alien fan. However, I do like Sigourney Weaver and her versatile talent as an actress, and I love good suspense and Sci-Fi.
This screenplay needed H-E-L-P! The overall concept of cloning Ripley was believable and interesting--tapping into the new development of cloning sheep, which was the current event at the time. And an interesting theme: Mankind and science not learning from the past, blah, blah....
Unfortunately, the characters were just as cloned as Ripley was. Stock caricatures of other better acted performances from films of past. We didn't care about the people who were killed, because we didn't know them. Winona Ryder was miscast and irritating to watch. The most interesting of the bunch were the Aliens themselves: smart and menacing, but we didn't really see them that much.
Sigourney did a fine job with her performance, but the new take on the NEW Ripley was a bit of a disappointment. She started out fine as a strong, don't-mess-with-me-mistah kind of woman, but she quickly crumbled into an emotional wreck whose cathartic breakdowns would've left anyone in desperate need of therapy. It is possible to make a 3-dimensional character of a strong nature while still making them human with compassion and feelings--it was done in the first two Alien films, (and even the third).
On a technical vein, the production design was good, and the underwater sequence was shot well. That hybrid Alien-human was just not very menacing looking. The "pure" Aliens were scarier. The hybrid looked more like something from Tim Burton's "Nightmare Before Christmas." The DVD was outstanding in picture and sound quality, and probably made the film more scary than it really is.
