Review by Andrew Manning (12/97)

Release: 1997, 20th Century Fox
Starring: Sigourney Weaver, Winona Ryder
Director: Jean-Pierre Jeunet
MPAA Rating: [R] violence, language
Genre: Science Fiction


200 years after her heroic suicide, Ripley (Weaver) is cloned by scientists in an attempt to exploit the alien species. When she discovers that an institutional entity wants to capitlize off the creatures, she leads a band, including a female smuggler (Ryder), to kill the aliens.


Ripley has hair this time around. A vast improvement over the relatively lame Alien 3. This flick is oozing with mood and atmosphere. Everything's industrial, dark, and vile. Sigourney Weaver's newly resurrected Ripley is imbued with a new and interesting dimension: genetically linked to the alien species, she has superhuman strength and a load of identity crises. She's also a little more sinister this time around.


Unfortunately, we're seeing the same basic story that we see in Aliens: "The Man" is trying to score a profit with the alien species, everything gets out of control, and Sigourney Weaver hauls some big ass gun through cramped corridors in an effort to eradicate the creatures.

Rating: 6.5 out of 10 (0=Abysmal, 5=Average, 10=Excellent)
