      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Alien Resurrection marks a slight improvement over its predecessor, but still lacks the emotional stakes that helped make the franchise's first two entries sci-fi/horror classics.

      Peter Travers Rolling Stone Alien Resurrection is juiced by the fresh thinking of visionary French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet... May 14, 2019 Full Review David Ansen Newsweek The franchise has lost none of its taste for acid-spewing, flesh-impaling, entrail-dripping gore. But the tone has changed...If this is your cup of slime, this jauntily gruesome installment won't disappoint. Mar 5, 2018 Full Review Mike Clark USA Today With the great Darius Khondji (Seven, Evita) photographing, Resurrection looks stylishly decayed, but it echoes Alien3 by failing to realize how much the first two series entries benefited from character-driven stories. Rated: 2.5/4 Jan 9, 2018 Full Review Don Shanahan Cinephile Hissy Fit Podcast The subversiveness adds to ballsy flair that keeps this one fun. Mar 23, 2024 Full Review Brian Rowe InSession Film Alien: Resurrection has its moments of weirdness and creativity, but it’s mostly just a throwaway film that didn’t need to be made. May 3, 2023 Full Review Dan DiNicola The Daily Gazette (Schenectady, NY) Not as accomplished as [Aliens], but a vast improvement over the third entry. More a series of horrific rides than a work with emotional resonance. Rated: B Jan 10, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

      Chris H Not the best Alien film, of course, but an interesting exploration of ideas and Weaver is wonderful, embracing the character shift perfectly. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/20/24 Full Review harley s This movie was a great installment that finally answered the question of what would finally happen when a weapons division tries experimenting on the aliens Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/18/24 Full Review Avery S I thought Alien Resurrection was a superb Alien film. The underwater scene was absolutely fantastic! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/10/24 Full Review Ross T This is the first Alien movie I ever watched as a kid... Sneaking downstairs, watching it from behind my mom's sofa and not being able to sleep for weeks. So this movie certainly does have a massive nostalgia factor for me PERSONALLY. Alien (1979) is my ALL TIME favorite movie of all time so I can completely understand why this movie gets so much hate but COME ON ... It's really not that bad. The Xenomorphs are brutal in this movie, the gore is disgusting and some of the scenes are very disturbing. The OST still gives me goosebumps to this day, something movies just don't tend to capture for me anymore. Yes the plot in this movie is very far fetched but .... It's science fiction? Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/10/24 Full Review josh d Somehow worse than Alien 3. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/08/24 Full Review Stan D Terrible script and poor idea for the movie. The dialogue is just brutal. Like Alien 3 the studio hurt the film and was a waste of what could of been done for sequels after the first 2 Rated 2 out of 5 stars 05/21/24 Full Review Read all reviews
