Alien Resurrection

Perhaps these films are like the Star Trek movies: The even-numbered episodes are the best ones. Certainly this film (directed by French stylist Jean-Pierre Jeunet) is an improvement over Alien 3, with a script that breathes exciting new life into the franchise. This chapter is set even further in the future, where scientists on a space colony have cloned both the alien and Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), who died in Alien 3; in doing so, however, they've mixed alien DNA with Ripley's human chromosomes, which gives Ripley surprising power (and a bad attitude). A band of smugglers comes aboard only to discover the new race of aliens--and when the multi-mouthed melonheads get loose, no place is safe. But, on the plus side, they have Ripley as a guide to help them get out. Winona Ryder is on hand as the smugglers' most unlikely crew member (with a secret of her own), but this one is Sigourney's all the way.

I like the whole movie overall but the scientist were idiots letting the aliens have a floor they could burn through easily.

The only Kudos I'm giving this movie was, the lore of the movie was still correct and didn't go too far off, except for the "newborn" thing was just... odd.

I know ripley was cloned from her DNA, and they tried many times (seeing the room full of "mistakes" of ripley) when she killed one of her clones with a flamethrower.

But, the series easily could have been called a "Trilogy" and ended with Ripley jumping in the furnace.

Cloning her was just a little silly, her being a "bad A" was also silly, and the black guy with dreadlocks could ricochet bullets perfectly, but couldn't shoot an alien right below him with like 7 shots? it would be easy to just kill in one shot with that kind of accuracy. There was also no explanation on how the Newborn got there, it was laying eggs normally like an Alien Queen at first, than gave birth like a Human? Why did it kill the queen?

And another thing, others might like but I thought that the gore was a little overly exagerated, esspecially with the Newborn.

And the general pulling a chunk of brain from his head, etc...

I would have to say this film is about in equality with Aliens. While I love Aliens, and I love this film, they both are the underdogs of the series in my eyes. Resurrection had an amazing story, and awesome creature design, not to mention stunning acting, it's downfall was how it tried to revive the series, other than let it rest in peace. Alien 3 was to be the epic ending of the series, and it still is in my opinion, Resurrection is simply a failed attempt to reanimate it's corpse, to 'resurrect' it. Perhaps that is another reason I like it and hate it, it used the 'resurrection' subtitle so intelligently, yet I hate how it tried to resurrect the greatest sci-fi/horror series of all time.
