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

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

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.

[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.

Grotesque carnage, vile characters; steer clear.

One of those rotten sci-fi/horror movies in which nonsense abounds

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

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

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.

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.

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.

There's so much goo in the film, it looks like God sneezed on the set.

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

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