_**A combo of the first three with a couple fresh ideas**_
Two hundred years after Ripley’s death in the previous film (Sigourney Weaver), she wakes up as a clone in a space station, which also serves as a colossal vessel. Scientists there are experimenting with xenomorph/human eugenics to create, I guess, the ultimate living weapon. Meanwhile a ship of smugglers visits the station when (big surprise) the aliens escape captivity. Winona Ryder and Ron Perlman play space pirates while Dominique Pinon and Michael Wincott are leaders at the station. Brad Dourif is on hand as a scientist.
“Alien Resurrection” (1997) is the fourth film in the series and combines elements of the previous three while throwing in a couple of new things. The diverse cast is great but I started to get bored by the end of the first act. Thankfully, the movie perks up with an outstanding underwater sequence that recalls “The Poseidon Adventure” (1972), albeit more amped up.
The peripheral cast is highlighted by the voluptuous Kim Flowers as Hillard and the formidable Gary Dourdan as Christie. But you just know they’re the equivalent of red shirts in Star Trek.
If you’ve seen the first three entries, there’s no pressing reason to see this one. It has a been-there-done-that vibe. However, if you appreciate those films and want more of the same with a new cast, “Alien Resurrection” is well done for what it is, proficient sci-fi/horror. Armchair critics have been too hard on it. While it lacks the mystery of the first movie and the suspense & utter horror of the second, it has more pizazz than the relatively subdued third installment.
The film runs 1 hour, 48 minutes.
Let sleeping dogs lie?
Directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the makers here basically stick safe to the formula of the series. This time it’s a space station with space pirates and a cloned Ripley (Siggy Weaver of course) – yes! A cloned Ripley, only this time she’s devoid of human compassion – kind of… The gore quota is significantly upped, which makes for some serious sci-fi terror, and some of the imagery crafted is outstanding (a clone lab sequence is shatteringly unforgettable). A tip top cast featuring Ron Perlman, Michael Wincott, Brad Dourif, Dan Hedaya and Winona Ryder, all give good shows, whilst the photography (Darius Khondji/Se7en) and art design (Steve Cooper, Andrew Neskoromny and John M. Dwyer) takes the breath away. Yet come the final straight it loses its way, sinking into a mire of over confidence, topped by a crown of thorns involving an albino baby alien hybrid. Shame that. 6.5/10
In space, no one can hear you sigh
Alien Resurrection is the most radical departure in the series that has now spanned centuries in its own universe and nearly twenty years of our own earth time. Gone is the meticulously constructed suspense of Ridley Scott’s 1979 original. Gone is the heart-stopping pulse of uncannily staged action from James Cameron’s 1986 sequel. Gone is the Ripley who cried and fought and bled and sacrificed her own life to save the world from the horror she very nearly unleashed in David Fincher’s atmospheric and underrated Alien 3. Instead, we get the all-new Ripley: cynical, sardonic, and ready with a wisecrack or a fist for anyone who crosses her path. Director Jeunet unfortunately seems to bask in self-parody, and this is where the film goes wrong. He serves up plenty of nasty evisceration and gruesome chest-bursting, but by now we have seen so much of the creatures that they are no longer terrifying. Still, I have a lasting affection and fascination with this series — and Jeunet Alien is better than no Alien.
If you thought Alien³ had ended the series, director Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Amélie) had found a way to return, quite a clever one. It has 200 years since Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) killed herself on the prison planet, being impregnated. After many attempts, scientists from The Company have successfully managed to clone her into an alien/human hybrid clone using her blood samples (from the planet), and removed the alien queen from her. Ripley, known as Number 8, does have blurs in her original memory, and she does need to relearn things, but she seems to have developed much more power, e.g. acidic blood, strength, ability to hear and smell the aliens, and obviously with these they won’t kill her. They are keeping the growing queen in a high security room, and breeding new aliens (with face huggers) insanely with crew members in hibernation, and eventually, they all break out on the ship. So with the help of Ripley, a group of smugglers, including: Annalee Call (Winona Ryder) (who turns out to be an android), cripple Vriess (Amélie’s Dominique Pinon), Johner (Hellboy’s Ron Perlman), Christie (Gary Dourdan), Sabra Hillard (Kim Flowers) and Vincent Distephano (Raymond Cruz) are trying to escape the ship before they enter the Homeland, Earth. Ripley does have contact with what she has become though, including meeting the new hybrid baby from the alien she had inside her, a hideous pale yellow alien with what looks like a skull for a head, who mistakes Ripley for her mother. In the end they do escape though, the aliens are destroyed, and the pale yellow thing is sucked (by the vaccuum) into bloody chunks going into outer space. Also starring Michael Wincott as Frank Elgyn, Dan Hedaya as Gen. Martin Perez, J.E. Freeman as Dr. Mason Wren, Brad Dourif as Dr. Jonathan Gediman and Leland Orser as Larry Purvis. The fantastic sequences include Dourif face to face (through glass) with the alien queen making it pull faces, the underwater chase, the alien birth through both a guy’s stomach and a guy’s head, and almost all of the gory effects. I have seen the re-edited version, which is ridiculous, e.g. the opening being an alien turning into an insect being squashed, although Ripley being reminded of Newt (she can’t remember her name though) is interesting, but just see the original. Winona Ryder was number 87, and Sigourney Weaver number 20 on The 100 Greatest Movie Stars. Very good!
