Two hundred years after Lt. Ripley died, a group of scientists clone her, hoping to breed the ultimate weapon. But the new Ripley is full of surprises … as are the new aliens. Ripley must team with a band of smugglers to keep the creatures from reaching Earth.
A completely unnecessary sequel that proudly takes over the label of Alien franchise's weakest chapter & also features an odd bit of interspecies erotica, Alien: Resurrection was seen by many as an improvement over Alien³ when it released but that's only because this film didn't have to deal with the reputation of two genre-defining chapters of the franchise & unlike its preceding instalment, it only gets worse on multiple viewings.
Set 200 years after the events of Alien³, Alien: Resurrection finds Ellen Ripley resurrected back to life through successful cloning & has the alien queen surgically removed from her body. In the hope of breeding this magnificent life form & study its biology, human hosts are used which are delivered by mercenaries but when…
Let's say you're riding a bike. You ride by the local candy store, waving to the local elderly couple making bank off of the giving of cavities to children. You ride downtown, witnessing a live concert and the general atmosphere of a sunny afternoon. You ride by a local pizza place, smelling the delectable cheeses being melted and watching the delivery guy carry 15 pies stacked up on top of one another.
The day is perfect.
You join up with a friend. The friend is a troublemaker. He's always the one bringing a fart noisemaker everywhere he goes and he somehow finds the time to tepee every house on Halloween. He's a cool guy though. As you're going down the…
....and it's all over.
We're a long way away from Ridley Scott's Alien (about 257 years or so) but with Fincher's empty Alien 3 diverting the franchise into existential gothic horror, at least Alien: Resurrection tries to have some fun.
It looks like an early outline for writer Joss Whedons own Firefly series, with a story in which he pits a roguish band of space pirates against our favourite face-fucking xenomorphs.
It's a little daft (Dan Hedaya stand up) and awkwardly macho (Big Ron P you're up) but there are some action sequences here - that in no way rival the punk rockness of Cameron's Aliens - but that do excite and raise the hearts BPM.
Sigourney Weaver often feels like a supporting character in her own damn story but Alien: Resurrection isn't a bad film, it's just not a very good one.
I've never thought about fucking a robot, but Winona would make me reconsider.
You read that star rating right, motherfuckers.
I feel like a YouTube commenter wishing for the good old days when movies like Alien Resurrection were getting made, but seriously, how many big-budget tentpole movies are getting made now (or, let's be honest with ourselves, then) where the thumbprints of at least three separate authors are visible in addition to the studio-demanded stuff? You've got Jean-Pierre Jeunet combining oddball, arty directorial choices (like a shot that takes the POV of Winona Ryder's fist as she punches J.E. Freeman in the face) with seemingly Evil Dead 2-inspired action scenes, Joss Whedon giving space assholes gruff dialogue to spit out, Darius Khondji making things all warm and dark and prettylike, and Sigourney Weaver…
In 1979: In space, no one could hear you scream.
In 1997: In space, no one gave a fuck.
I tried so hard to avoid watching this film. I have'nt heard good things about it and I wanted to keep my love for the Alien franchise intact. Then I thought, "Why not! Prometheus is about to come out so I might as well go in seeing all the Alien films. It can't be as bad as Alien 3. This can't be THAT bad!" and it was'nt THAT bad. It was much, much, much, much, MUCH worse.
I don't understand how such a great franchise can be ruined by one film, and I saw The Matrix Revolutions AND Batman & Robin! I…
A slight improvement over Alien 3 with some bold and creative concepts but not very well executed.
Special Edition: D-
"Who do I have to fuck to get off this boat?"
"I can get you off. Maybe not the boat."
Alien: Resurrection (Special Edition) adds 13 minutes of new footage into the film which includes an alternate opening and closing credits (that are worse than the theatrical ones) and extended scenes of already shit scenes from this horrible movie that made me actually want to drink bleach and literally makes Prometheus look like the Citizen Kane of film.
Taking place two hundred years after Alien 3, Ripley is cloned and brought back to life along with some alien DNA in this huge pile of shit film that features some of the worst editing I have ever…
I cannot wait for Neil Blompkamp to remake Alien 3 so I can forget about this film.
A solid action flick and a major step up from Alien 3. It isn't perfect, it feels like there's a couple major scenes missing, but it's very well put aestheticized and it has some great performances.
At least it's better than Alien Cubed
I wish they could leave great movies like Alien alone and not make unnecessary sequels that can never live up to the quality of the original
"Earth, man. What a shithole."
Hi, I would like to purchase the grow your own Sigourney Weaver kit that this film advertised. Specifically, the 8th model. If anyone can point me in the direction of a distributor with international shipping I'd be truely grateful.
