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.

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

Customer Reviews

Good story, great special effects, great action sequences.
Ramsey A Slaieh
I don't see the point in why they even made this movie- I think people went to see it because they were hoping it was better than the third one.
C. Upperstrom
Alien 3 is dark, scary and very gory, back to the style of the first film.

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.

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.

I am a fan of the Dark Horse comics, and to me this story seemed very comic book-like, and that is why i loved it!! i loved the characters (stock or not), the entire movie is completely original and adrenolin-pumping. I was much relieved to find that the computer generated effects were kept to a minimum unless absolutely needed, and even then were very effective and not at all cheesy. The true intelligence of the aliens is finally seen in this movie. The story is what i love about this movie, and I think it was well implemented. People, you are not even TRYING to appreciate the depth of story in this movie! movies are meant to entertain, not EDUCATE. if you want a science lesson watch mr f***ing wizard! the flaws in this movie do not make it any less engrossing, and if you think it does than maybe you shouldn't watch movies.
If you are an Aliens fan, do not be discouraged by the third movie (or the negative reviews), THIS IS THE BEST ONE OF THE SERIES. but don't take my word for it; there's at least one review for EACH movie in the series that says it's the best one. all i'm saying is give it a chance, and try to UNDERSTAND the things that are happening. if you want to be entertained, you will be. a fun movie

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

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!

Alien Resurrection picks up after the gloomy ending of Alien 3 albeit 200 years later. This forth entry is directed by Frenchman Jean-Pierre Jeaunet. The results are incredibly mixed. The story, Ripley's blood/DNA, taken from the hospital ward of the prison colony, is used to create a clone of her former self. Aboard a military science vessel, where now the Alien species are being bred by some deranged scientists, a group of smugglers are hired to provide "bodies" for these disturbing actions.
Sigourney Weaver is haunting and rather creepy as this new Ripley who has Alien DNA and a "relationship" with the creatures. Winona Ryder is Call, a renegade and obsolete android who's a recent addition of the space pirates, that get more than they bargained for on this delivery. Fittingly Ripley and Call show the most human character despite their strange background. Most of the other characters are nothing more than bait for the Aliens. Dominique Pinon as the crippled pirate is an exception.
Being there are few surprises, this film works better as a Sci-fi/horror adventure film. The story itself is worthy and interesting but underdeveloped. Too much time is spent on the gory attacks. There are too many unnecessary characters as well.
The production design and special effects are first rate. The Alien effects by Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff Jr. are among the film's biggest problems. Their Alien creatures lack all of the creepy and elegant work that H.R Giger and Stan Winston so vividly created on the first two films. Way too much slime and gore is thrown at the audience here. The grotesque newborn alien is bizarre and very slimy.
Alien Resurrection is certainly a strange entry of the Alien films. Certainly not nearly as good as the first two, but it does work better than Alien 3. The open and ambiguous ending does allow for another film. If so.. H.R. Giger and a great story are mandatory for it to work.
