some good points made there people(except for the first movie being crap and having nothing in it) The humanoid alien was disturbing but unneccesary and the transition of ripley is lame at best. But I think it was better than alien 3, which is why I think I was surprised that everybody hated it. Winona Ryder should only star in beetlejuice movies in the future, there is no way that someone like her would be journeying around space executing top secret missions on behalf of the government, even if she was a robot, she should never have gotten past the audition(the character and winona). On a side note, ALIEN was originally going to be called STARBEAST!!!

I have to agree with most people here because I felt Aliens Resurrection lacked direction with the whole idea of being scared and completely trapped with these aliens. The characters lacked the imagination of 1 + 2, the futuristic weapons were pants, the plot non-existent . (You would of thought the weird scientist guy would know about the acid blood and reinforce the floor of the cage so they couldn't escape) And that abomination at the end was just not Giger.

I agree, there is some good constructive criticism here (wicker man, rages remorse) but i also think that many of you are just following the crowd in your alien 4 bashing. I sick of hearing people come out with remarks like: "alien 4 was a travesty" or "It ruined the Alien franchise", this to me just shows how quick people are to jump on the bandwagon if an opinion is popular enough.

I myself feel that one of the main factors in Alien 4 being made was money, the film makers obviously felt it was too profitable a francise to put to rest. However, the movie itself wasnt bad at all, it did have the same feel as the others in the series but failed to emulate the suspense of the first and second films.

i didn't mind it. the aliens being hybrids with humans wasn't such a bad idea, it could help the aliens and it could lead to further movie ideas. if a alien can look like a human it could fit in with humans it could spread the aliens around futher, infesting planets with less chance of detection and such and soforth

not that it matters, but i tried very hard to like ressurection. i Tried so very hard BECAUSE i am such an avid fan. I even convinced myself that alien 3 was an okay movie, just no where near the previous set standards.
If a movie sucks, im not going to sugar coat it even if it is a franchise i love. The alien movies at one time were in a league of there own, setting standards for all other movies to be studied, and shattering expectations. Then we got alien3 which was nothing more than a mediocre sci/fi flick at best. It was a recycled concept of the first movie. Now to ressurection. This movie wasnt even an elaboration onto the series. It was just digging up the dead, literally. It was one long pointless story. With horrible dialogue, shamefull acting, despicable special effects, and a butchard comic book plot. If it wasnt for the ALIEN name tatooed onto this movie it would have went down as a bad B movie.

Alien Poor as we call it around here...

A bit tongue in cheek though. We have all seen way worse films, I am sure. Not as good as the first two but we all knew that would happen, didn't we?

In my opinion the movie has been bashed because :-

The plot is crap.
The acting is crap.
All sense of suspense was missing.

A shameless money making and punter conning, idea by hollywood (as usual)

i think saying the halloween series getting better with each new installment is a biased opinion
