Editorial Reviews

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.

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.

Different is good. The horror is packed in a different way, but very effective.

My title may seem slightly paradoxical in the wake of AVP and after Alien 3, but AVP doesn't count and Alien 3 was actually a decent, underrated film: Alien Ressurection is not.

First of all, this film should never have been made. The Alien series was quite rightly a trilogy, not a tetrology or quadrilogy or whatever they're calling it. The series was neatly wrapped up and there was no reason to bring it back, certainly not for this mess. The strong protagonist from the first 3, Ellen Ripley, is not back. Instead we have a cloned version fond of snippy, out-of place dialogue. Instead of a strong supporting cast we have cariactures like "The noble black man who heroically but rashly gives his life" (however this character can be seen in Alien and Alien 3 as well, played by Yaphet Kotto and Charles S. Dutton, respectively), the muscle man Johnner (although I must be honest, he was clearly the most interesting and likeable character) and a thoroughly awful Winona Ryder, acting poorly in every scene requiring the slightest hint of emotion.

The characters who get the worst treatment are the aliens. Originally a menacing jet-black insect-like creature that was not a creature to be trifled with, we now have these poorly-animated (although admittedly better than in Alien 3) boring animals that don't evoke any interest. The new alien introduced in the latter half of the film is grotesque but little else.

There are a few positives: Ron Perlman's character Johnner is fun, the underwater sequence is handled quite well as long as you're able to beleive that all the characters could hold their breath for 2 minutes plus. One scene features a character yelling another character's name in warning, at which point he looks up, knowing the end has come.

Of the four ALIEN films, this has to be my least favourite.What bugged me the most were the gaping inaccuracies: None of it madeany sense!
And even if you could ignore all that, what about the acting? Everyone played a stereotypical character, except for Winona Ryder, who played her usual, whiny, stock character, and I kept thinking that if there were anyone not suited to be in an ALIEN film, she would be the one. Still, I have to admit, Sigourney Weaver played a different sort of Ripley, which showed off a bit more of her range, and I was pretty impressed with her naive, bad-attitude self. Unfortunately, that was the only bright spot. The other three films focused so much on the human characteristics that set the human race apart from the aliens, but RESURRECTION missed that point entirely. I guess having a clone and a robot as the main characters detracts too much from that theme.
I can't even say much for the action sequences, which were supposed to be so much different from anything else on the screen. Ooh, an underwater scene. (Yawn.) Aliens popping out of floors. (Deja vu!) And instead of trying to actually scare us with the aliens, the director used buckets and buckets of blood that were supposed to provide us with the horror. Remember how claustrophobic the first movie was? How about the sense of helplessness in the second movie, or the desperation in the third? That's horror. It gets under your skin, not all over your clothes.
Each of the ALIEN movies set out to reset the standard of movies of its type, and each one -- including ALIEN 3 -- did so. RESURRECTION is just a hodgepodge of the main elements of the previous films, but done much less successfully than the others. Even if you don't compare this movie to the other three, it's still a failure, because it's nearly impossible to care for any of the characters. Do yourself a favor, if you love the ALIEN series, and skip this one. Just pretend like it doesn't even exist.
