    A visually repulsive third sequel which proves to be bizarrely inept at the script level (as soon as the aliens break out of quarantine the entire military personnel vacate the ship, the character of Christie proves himself to be a crack-shot early on, but can't hit an alien 3 feet below him...). Despite these faults and its god-awful CGI, Resurrection remains a thoroughly entertaining science-fiction horror, just as long as your brain is totally switched off.

    This movie is a mess. I think the concept is actually pretty cool, but after that, it's pretty much trash. WTF, Joss Whedon? Awkward lines and super uncomfortable misogynist lines. Sigourney does what she can with a super weird role, I actually think she's pretty great in this... Winona on the other hand? Bad job, kid. Major lack in the character motivation department. How am I supposed to feel for ANY of these people? Hybrid alien creature aka "Lil' Wiggle Nose" is pretty gross though, so that's cool...

    I still really dig this one. I don't think I knew until a couple of years ago that Joss Wheaton had written this one, and some of that still shines through the rewrites. A lot of clunky dialogue and weird exposition as well, though.

    Still, I can't hate a movie where Dan Hedaya gets to show off his shoulder hair.

    Not work of genre and directorial work but still has some fun moments....

    I'm not certain of why this film came about. Whether it was because of a desire to end the franchise in a better way after the failure of Alien 3 or just cashing in on the name of a popular franchise. Either way Alien Requiem is a weak addition to the Alien franchise and one that does not live up to the legacy that preceded it.

    This time it doesn't even feel like a sequel, but rather like a reboot.…

    It's the wacky adopted sister of the franchise, you can either take it or leave it. Its nowhere near as slick or classic feeling as Alien or Aliens, and even though Alien3 is probably an overall better film than this one, Resurrection at least offers some more interesting ideas and has a sense of unapologetic fun about it which can be entertaining enough for 2 hours.
    It may be a bit too weird for some, Juenet certainly doesn't hold back…

    It's best to think of Alien Resurrection less as a canonical sequel and more an extended universe companion piece to the Alien trilogy proper -- after all, it shares barely any connection with them style-wise. Style, it turns out, is what the film has in abundance, with Jeunet directing the hell out of Joss Whedon's confused clunker of a screenplay, subverting it at every turn with his distinct visuals and weird, black sense of humor. This is a big budget…

    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.

    Als ich diesen Film das erste mal gesehen habe, irgendwann 1999 oder 2000, wusste ich weder, wer Jean-Pierre Jeunet, noch wer Joss Whedon ist. Jetzt springen einen die Markenzeichen beider Personen geradezu an. Die Einstellungen, Farbwelten und das Knautschgesichter-Casting von Jeunet; die Dialogzeilen und Figurenkonstellationen von Whedon.

    Whedon hat den Film mehr oder weniger enterbt, ist der Meinung, dass sein Drehbuch zwar erhalten geblieben aber einfach völlig falsch umgesetzt wurde; zu ernst, zu on-the-nose. Ich finde nicht, dass er damit…

    Alien: Resurrection continues the downward trend of the series. But it probably didn't have to quite as bad as it is.

    It's not one of Joss Whedon's best scripts but it is better than it appears to be. As I was watching I was wondering where his usual witty banter had disappeared to. But actually, it's there. It's just that the actors and director didn't bring it out properly. For example, watch the film again but imagine Adam Baldwin in…
