Released:
1997
Rating:
R

Alien Resurrection is the 1997 fourth chapter in the Alien series. Not even suicide can save Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) from her nemesis. 200 years after Ripley jumped into a furnace to kill the alien queen growing inside of her, scientists on the space ship Auriga have made a clone, complete with an embryo of the alien. The Ripley clone quickly reaches adult size and the doctors remove the alien embryo that has grown inside her. Ripley soon discovers she has surprising physical prowess and acidic blood, but it takes the revelations of a young crew member, Annalee Call (Winona Ryder) for Ripley to realize she's a clone. As the Auriga heads towards Earth, disruptions between the crew, the scientists and a group of smugglers cause a crisis. Will the half-human, half-alien Ripley take a side? Jean-Pierre Jeunet ("Am''lie") directs this final chapter in the science fiction classic with great visual style and drama.

    It's a nine days' wonder, a geek show designed to win a weekend or two at the box office and then fade from memory.
