    Slightly better than Alien 3 but not as good as the first two films. The movie walks the line between humorous and serious and contains more gory moments than necessary. The character of Ripley is watered down due to her genetic makeup, which makes the film less pleasurable to watch. Winona Ryder as "Call" brings some compassion and original Alien storytelling to the script but not enough to save it.

    How disappointing... I actually enjoyed Alien3 for what it was, but this was kind of atrocious. The most irritating thing is that it is full of interesting concepts about hybrids and how the xenos are actually intelligent. That is mostly wasted. A few interesting scenes, and the first 30 minutes aren't half bad, but as the action starts and the overstylised cinematography kicks in, nothing stops the train from plumiting downhill. The worst thing about it for me, strangely enough,…

    It gets two stars for having Ron Perlman....

    It looses 3 stars for that weird Alien/Human abomination.....

    Great ending of the Alien quadrilogy, the best SF ever!
    I always loved this part. Great design and photography, lots of cool characters and action scenes. Weaver is really badass.
    The underwater-ladder sequence is my favorite part of the entire series.
    Really too bad they never made any more of Alien movies.
    (meaning REAL Alien movies, with Weaver fighting them in continuity of this film)
    All four are excellent and have so different styles and that's what make them so…

    Film #4 of the Alien Quadology.

    I was very skeptical going into this film, so I was pleasantly surprised that this movie developed into a fun, action film. The characters were a little goofy including Weaver, but the movie did have some suspense and the aliens were great. I was thinking this is definitely a 3.5 star film because I was enjoying my fun, action film, but then IT happened. Yes, the climatic ending came and it was so awful…

    I'm fairly forgiving when it comes to the Alien franchise, but Resurrection is definitely the saddest entry: for every thing that the film gets right, there's at least a dozen things that go haywire wrong.

    It also should be noted how embarrassing how Joss Whedon already had a template in place that he'd go back to over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. Do you have any other tricks?

    Having killed off Ripley in Alien³, a fourth instalment was always going to have to be a bit different, and the producers clearly had style on their minds when they recruited Jean-Pierre Jeunet to direct. He certainly contributes a new tone to the series, and if it is possible to erase the memory of parts one to three, there are some things to admire in Alien Resurrection as a strangely beautiful and comic sci-fi nightmare.

    The problems start when you…

    Äh, ja, mir fällt nicht mal ne Einleitung ein, so nichtssagend ist der Streifen. Aber was will man auch von einem vierten Teil erwarten. Kein Totalausfal, aber auch einfach nichts Besonderes. Irgendwie Durchschnitt.

    There is absolutely nothing redeeming about this film, in any way, shape or form.

    Provavelmente o pior dos quatro filmes da Ripley. História forçada, situações forçadas e personagens pouco interessantes.

    Well, at least every Alien movie feels distinct.
    Fun in very minor spurts when it goes full goofy but too unformed for those moments to not feel accidental. Secondary characters exist on a scale of bland, one note, and unsympathetic (I have no idea who is meant to be the audience anchor), never finds a way to reconcile the Whedon quirk with whatever Jeunet tried to do.

    Jean-Pierre Jeunet gets to do his auteur thing in the Aliens universe. Brad Dourif plays yet another creepy bug eyed fuck, Ron Perlman swaggers around the set and Weaver wonders why she even bothered. Not quite excruciating but guarantee everyone involved has done much, much better
