Alien 4 a movie that should have ended at number three but it didn't. This movie is stupid and silly but it's so bad that it's so funny.

Sequel that boils down to an average action romp. Some pleasing special effects and fights, but not much in terms of story. Plot-holes abound.

Jean-Pierre Jeunet tries to inject his off-beat whimsical visual style into this, but it just doesn't work. This film is neither scary nor interesting. Really, it's just a mess.

"Alien Resurrection" by Yojimbo

200 years after the death of Ellen Ripley she is cloned by yet more misguided scientists in order to breed the species for their research on board a military vessel. Alien 3 tried to follow the template of the first film with some flawed success and Alien Resurrection does the same for its sequel Aliens with similar results. The very contrived premise is one that you have to accept considering Ripley died at the end of the previous film but the whole alien hybrid concept is a little harder to swallow. Joss Whedon actually disowned the script after various studio rewrites but it does have some very nice moments; particularly the scene in which Ripley confronts "herself" and the idea of self aware androids consumed with self loathing. Jeunet also stamps his own brand of attractive visual in...

Action: 2/3 + Comedy: 0.5/2 + Good vs Evil: 0.5/1 + Love/Sex: 0.5/1 + Special Effects: 0.5/1 + Plot: 1/1 + Music: 1/1 = 6/10 or 60%.

Jean-Pierre Jeunet brings over a portion of the cast from his film The City of Lost Children, and they are much more welcoming than the prior cast of the third installment! Weaver delivers another inspired performance of great range, which reminds us of why she is the queen of badasses.

The plot and story however get far too mixed up in the theme of Frankenstein- presenting a new form of the alien species that is asexual. It's this odd blend of fairy-tale horror motifs that just don't blend well at all, in addition to a few casting questions, that almost tank the project. Winona Ryder as a robot is beyond camp quality bad. Overall, an upgrade from the...

Witness the Resurrection

Alien Resurrection is the fourth and to this date final film in the Alien saga not including the recent AvP films. The films title no doubt references both the resurrection of Ripley and an attempt to revitalize the Alien series after the relatively poor reception of Alien 3. Penned by Joss Whedon and directed by Jean-Pierre Juenet, Alien Resurrection was released in November of 1997. Unfortunately it met with equally mixed critical reception and even worse box office numbers as its predecessor.

The very loose plot of the film takes place 200 years after the events of Alien 3. A team of scientists has cloned Ripley aboard the USM (United Military Systems) Auriga using blood samples from Fury 161. They have done this to extract the Alien Queen inside of her. There are plenty of quest...
