This is not a Hollywood space thriller at all, but an intergalactic fantasy driven by the same cheerfully eccentric impulses that have informed a myriad of high-spirited French filmmakers.

More than worthwhile as a closing statement.

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.

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

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.

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

Someone went crazy with the fake flesh and exoskeletons in the Fox creature shop, to impressive and exciting results.

Se não acrescenta nada à série, este filme também não embaraça.

It satisfactorily recycles the great surprises that made the first movie so powerful. And most significantly, it makes a big hoot of the whole business.

It brings a mordant, crackerjack wit to the world of chest-busting, head-ripping creepazoids from beyond.

Jeunet creates some scenes of genuine suspense, and some of the action packs a real punch.
