If you have missed this movie then you need to back track and make sure you do see it. The fourth installment in the Alien Franchise was this 1997 film titled Alien Resurrection which had Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) cloned after she died 200 years ago in the incidents of Alien 3. The cloned Ripley had in her the DNA of the Alien so what they company had “CLONED” was a hybrid, a human and the alien DNA mixed.

The new Ripley had in her chest the Queen Embryo, which was removed as soon as the cloning process was a success, and she was studied and she bred a new kind of Alien, a Hybrid that was part human and part Alien, making this film thrilling as you eager to see what will happen next, as we all expect the aliens to break loose as they always have

Well the company also had Alien eggs and they captured men in hyper-sleep and used them to breed the Aliens. They caged them and tried to train them but soon the Aliens got smart and broke free and again all hell broke loose.

What makes this last installment to the franchise good was the suspense, in every turn there is something you thought you had figured out till it changes the next second, making the story dynamic as it twist and brings in each twist excitement. The film is written by Joss Whedon, who had worked on Buffy the Vampire slayer before this, the story and screenplay had enough action to keep you on the edge of your sit.

The actors were on their toes throughout the movie, delivering their lines and their interpretation of the characters with finesse. Another thing that did it for me was the idea to use the Alien’s blood as part of the script, not much about this acid blood has occurred in the previous two installments. But here it played a vital role in the story.
It was also directed by another director, a French director Jean-Pierre who I have to give kudos to, as he did a fine job in delivery.

The CGI and the effects in this installment was better than all previous 3 put together, and it has to be said even though this is not better than the part 2 (Aliens (1986)), it redeemed the image of the franchise.

This was the last time we saw Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) and it was a wonderful exit for her.
