... 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.

I didn't realize until later how stupid the whole thing was. Chalk up one more for Sigourney's acting and chalk up one more reason to stop with sequels already.

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

If you need to read a review to decide if you want to see "Alien Resurrection," you absolutely shouldn't be going.

The filmmaker's ghoulishly fecund imagination makes this tale murky that even the screen's toughest woman warrior remains largely stuck in the mud.

If you consider 'Alien' and 'Aliens' to be the main course, then 'Alien Resurrection' is leftovers.

Weaver obviously relishes playing this feral, sarcastic new Ripley, and her pleasure is infectious.

There is not a single shot in the movie to fill one with wonder.

So campy that it almost plays like a sendup of the series. It is to 'Alien' what 'The Bride of Frankenstein' was to other 1930s Frankenstein movies, and it even shares some of the same themes.

A lot of fun to watch, and easy to surrender to in the moment.

Joss Whedon's atrocious script single-handedly gives the series a frontal lobotomy.

Not the best Alien film, but unquestionably the most thematically ambitious

Delicate Winona Ryder is out place with her grizzled crew.

'Alien Resurrection' does well by the classy series -- it's nowhere near as frightful and original as the first film, and offers less riveting action than the second.
