Director: Jean-Pierre Jeunet
(Spoilers for the previous three Alien films are below).
The ending to Alien 3 was conclusive…until Hollywood decided to make this movie. Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) is back, despite having jumped into a vat of lava in Alien 3, and is now a clone mixed of Ripley’s memories and alien genetics… she’s super strong and nearly immune to physical pain …Oh Boy!
Alien Resurrection proves that the Alien franchise should never have been brought back from the dead. It’s not due to having a lack of talented people on hand to make this film, its the fact that the Alien franchise, or at least the parts concerning Ripley, have no room to breathe and develop as a story.
