200 years after her death, Ellen Ripley is revived as a powerful human/alien hybrid clone. Along with a crew of space pirates, she must again battle the deadly aliens and stop them from reaching Earth.
The saga continues 200 years after Ripley sacrificed herself for the sake of humanity. Her erstwhile employers long gone, this time it is the military that resurrects the one-woman killing machine through genetic cloning to extract the alien from within her, but during the process her DNA is fused with the queen and then the aliens escape. Now Ripley must decide where her allegiance lies.
Alien: Resurrection is SO much better than you remember it being
When people think of the worst movie in the Alien saga, automatically what comes to mind is "Alien: Resurrection." While it is true that it is among the lesser Alien movies (Resurrection, Alien 3, Alien vs. Predator 1&2), it is honestly kind of a dumb masterpiece. What that means is while this movie may be really weird and off the rails and bloated at times, it has a certain charm and awesomeness to it that Alien 3 doesn't have. While I actually don't hate Alien 3, it is easily the worst of the main 6 Alien movies (Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, Alien: Resurrection, Prometheus, and Alien: Covenant). And I feel fine saying that, even though many people might disagree with me. Even though Ripley is pretty bad in Resurrection, Winona Ryder makes everything better (I have a fairly big crush on Winona Ryder). So, haters, back off. Alien: Resurrection is a movie worth your time.
