Two centuries after her death, a powerful human/alien hybrid clone of Ellen Ripley aids a crew of space pirates in stopping the aliens from reaching Earth.
“Alien Resurrection” is a science fiction movie released in 1997. It is the fourth installment in the “Alien” movie franchise, and it was directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and written by Joss Whedon. The movie stars Sigourney Weaver, Winona Ryder, Ron Perlman, and Dan Hedaya.
The movie takes place two hundred years after the events of “Alien 3.” A group of scientists have cloned the protagonist from the first three movies, Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), using blood samples taken before her death. The scientists hope to breed and study the alien species for military purposes, but their experiments go awry when the aliens escape and start killing the crew.
Ripley, who now possesses some alien DNA due to the cloning process, joins forces with a group of smugglers led by Johner (Ron Perlman) and a synthetic human named Call (Winona Ryder) to fight the aliens and try to escape the research facility. Along the way, they discover a sinister plot involving the cloning experiments and must fight to save themselves and prevent the aliens from reaching Earth.
“Alien Resurrection” received mixed reviews from critics and fans of the franchise. While some praised the movie’s unique visual style and action sequences, others criticized it for its convoluted plot and departure from the tone of the earlier films. Despite this, the movie was a commercial success, grossing over $160 million worldwide.
