Alien 4: Resurrection (1997)

Alien 4: Resurrection (1997)

Country:  USA

Director: Jean-Pierre Jeunet

Main Stars: Sigourney Weaver, Winona Ryder, Dominique Pinon

Storyline: Ellen Ripley is revived and is now part human and alien as she continues her war against the beasts.

Review (Spoils):  200 years after the last film, we resurrect Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) with the process of cloning but during the process the DNA get’s mixed up with the alien DNA from the Queen. Ripley becomes an offshoot of an alien mutant and the scientist start to breed aliens. The Xeno-morphs start to roam the ship and start taking over is which just happens to be on its way to Earth. So Ripley and her new team need to once again put a stop to the alien horde and their Queen.

This film brought a new spin to the Ripley character and brought us a even more powerful alien as new breed is born. The first three films of the series actually closed the deal on the original story and this one just seems to be placed out there to cash on the name. The film does have action and aliens just keep you on track but the characters themselves seem cardboardish. I was even disappointed with the character Winona Ryder played (which normally I enjoy her acting). The film scream more sci-fi then actual horror more then ever.

Rating: This film is just a drag on the very last part of a cigarette when it comes to the Aliens series. The film is not horrible but when you place it with the first three it can not compare. But I love Sigourney Weaver so I will not mark this film too hard. But it seemed to me that this film became to sci-fi for me as being a horror fan if that makes any sense.

5/10 Beers!
