All right, I forgive the writers for killing off Ellen Ripley in Alien 3, because they did such a splendid job of bringing her back in Alien:Resurrection, the fourth movie. I even forgive them for trying to work a romance into the plot of Aliens, the second movie, because this film is what makes going to the movies fun.

Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), is the heroine of the last three movies, and she's supposed to have been taking a dirt nap for the past two hundred years. However, some brilliant, if twisted, scientists manage to find some of her blood and re-grow her in a lab. Newly revived, she's even spookier - and more darkly humorous - than before. It becomes hard to tell who's creepier - Ripley or the aliens! (The funny thing is, although she's now the exact age as she was when she died, she seems to have aged - in other words, they shouldn't have waited so long to make the fourth movie!)

The plot is more or less the same as the previous Alien movies - Ripley is once again trying to kick the alien's butts. If you didn't like the first three movies, you probably won't like this one. Also, if you didn't view the first three movies, you're apt to be confused, as my mom and a friend of mine were, so I would recommend renting the first three before you see this one. You might want to rent them even if you've seen them already - this brings back some good memories. I just hope we won't have to wait so long for the next movie (and hopefully, there will be a next one).

My Rating = Four Stars
