Cinema Sight

A blend of surrealist humor, unintentional self-parody and groan-inducing moments, this is easily the nadir of the franchise.

Antagony & Ecstasy

[Jeuenet] doesn't push it all the way to "so bad it's good" territory, but he at least gives a healthy dose of the bizarre that makes it memorable, in its fashion.

This fourth chapter in the popular sci-fi-horror franchise is without a doubt the weakest, both dramatically and visually.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

More than worthwhile as a closing statement.

IGN DVD

Simply put, Jean-Pierre Jeunet was the absolute wrong choice for this film. His award-winning quirky French visual sensibilities don't mesh well with Joss Whedon's meat-and-potatoes script.

Grotesque carnage, vile characters; steer clear.

City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul

This fourth chapter comes off as the first fully postmodern Alien film: not Alien multiplied or cubed, but synthetically reawakened, groggy enough to sleepwalk through our memories of the first three, as in a dream.

After the disappointing Alien 3, this fourth film in the franchise represents a marked improvement, but it fails to match the level established in the first two films.

Un de ces films dont il faut savoir s'imprégner de l'idée de départ pour être en mesure d'en apprécier les ébats à leur juste valeur.

Jeunet and Whedon deliver the alien-attack scenes with a spin and a wink.

Projection Booth

Has more visual flair than any of George Lucas' Star Wars films, and at times is almost as fun.

Poor Sigourney Weaver! Why does she succumb to the temptation of making these movies?

It's time they quit killing the aliens, and just killed the Alien series altogether. ... How the mighty have fallen.

Moviegoers who expect more surprise and mystery from the grisly and suspenseful sci-fi "Alien" series will be disappointed.

The much-maligned last part in the Alien quadrilogy should be approached as the comic book actioneer that it is.

...it's two hundred years down the road from Alien 3, and Ripley is long gone. If only. (Alien Quadrilogy)

Great effects, dismal story. Sigourney phones in a paycheck. Why is Ryder even in this? Ron Perlman is the only bright spot in a forgettable cast.

| Original Score: 1/5

Film Threat

Unfortunately, Weaver and Jeunet's efforts are short changed by the ineptness of Joss Whedon's script, that seems to find a way to make action sequences unexciting.

The film is so insistently formulaic there is hardly a moment when you don't know exactly what's going to happen.

... despite more Catholic imagery than a mid-period Madonna video, the movie isn't heavy-handed ...
