years have passed since Ripley (Sigourney
Weaver) jumped into a fire pit and was
impregnated by an alien.
Scientists in a ship have revived Ripley
as a powerful human /alien hybrid clone
to take the queen alien out of her so it
can breed in the scientists ship which is
on course to Earth.
Ripley is learning language and how to
live like a human again but she also
warns the people that they are in danger
with those things on board. Ripley's DNA
gets mixed up with the Queen's and she
begins to develop certain alien
Plus, after the aliens are fully bred
they kill one of their own so it will
bleed acid and to escape the room they
are trapped in the ship.
The aliens are walking amongst the ship
and killing everyone in it's way and it
is up to Ripley to stop this as she can
seem to communicate with them.
However the General Perez (Dan Hedeya)
will stop at nothing to have these aliens
arrive to Earth so he can still
experiment with them.
The story has an impressive beginning with people creating Ripley again as well as a good shot on her in a water type container as well as showing them taking the baby alien creature out of her and stuff like that so it explains on how they made a clone of Ripley after the end of the last sequel.
There's a good menacing reaction on Ripley towards a General Perez when she tries to strangle him which
looked well paced.
There is also a funny discusssion between Dr. Gediman when he
tries to explain Ripley in order to speak on what he's holding
which is a fork.
There's also a good discussion with Ripley towards Gediman and Perez when she tells them that they're going to
die in the ship with those aliens on
board as this really grabs your attention on what this clone knows since the original Ripley knows all about what these creatures are like and explains that you can't tame them.
A nice shot on some people
asleep and some eggs around them in the
ship along with a good close up shot on
one of them with his eyes opening letting out a
scream. This looked cleverly done as well as showing an evil person in control by trying to breed this monsters as it offers a nice horror fashion by spotting all of this.
A good shot on Ripley's legs on her
bouncing a basketball and shooting hoops.
Plus we have nice moments with her and a fellow named Johner when he tries to get the ball from her
and she seemingly acts flirtatious. There
is also some good fighting sequences with
the two of them during this
moment as well as some swinging action
with another member of the ship named Christie.
A nice shot on Gediman approaching a glass where an alien is and
imitating the creatures expressions as
well as a great jumping moment when this
creature tries to lash out.
We have a good shot on Annelee Call with a knife approaching a room area
where Ripley is sleeping and
closely checking her out as well as a
peaceful looking conversation between them as Annelle acting a bit anxious finding
out about her as well as Ripley acting slick about it.
We spot some perfect shots on Christie shooting both of his pistols he holds in
his hands with wide eyed expressions
which looked intimidating.
Good shots on the creatures communicating
with one another as well as killing one
of them so it will bleed acid as this gives you a chilling feeling that something bad is going to happen. All of this looked perfectly intense. There's also a good shot on Gediman looking down on some holes on each
floorway caused by the creatures bloody
acid which looks creepy along with a nice shot on a
creatures hand grabbing Gediman and pulling him down.
Good shots on the crew of people evacuating
and trying to escape as well as Vriess in his wheelchair putting a rifle
together with a shot on a creature
crawling on top of a floor. The action totally packs a punch a great deal when we spot this.
Terrific shots on Ripley looking
through a lab with deformed clones of her in which this looked perfectly twisted and never seen anything like this in the previous flicks as I kinda wondered if this should've been put into the story but yewt gives it the good horror/sci fi feel to it since sequels always have stuff that is out of the ordinary while seeing the original.
A good upsetting shot on her
using a torchgun and burning everything as this looked effective.
Great moments with some of the people swimming in water with some
creatures swimming after them as this keeps you in suspense wondering how long they can hold their breath without drowning as well as them trying to find a way to get out of the water by ripping open a surface. Plus a good creepy shot on a pattern of alien eggs which looked clever in the film as a trap for everyone trying to get out.
There's a nice struggling moment with
both Vriess and Christie climbing a ladder with a creature on
A real interesting scene on Ripley by acting weak
saying the mother alien is in pain and
hesitates. We also have a nice look on a
creature carrying her to the nest as we have never spotted a moment like this in any of the films.
We spot a perfect and strange setting
with Ripley at the nest with the
queen alien along with Gediman cocooned
up and behaving crazy as all of this
looked very gothic. Then we spot a weird looking monster born that we never saw in a film as this for sure looked very odd and had doubts of this coming into the story.
There's a good discussion by Ripley explaining to Annalee who she is and do something
about taking action against the nasty
General of the ship.
A perfect upsetting moment when Ripley uses her blood to burn a hole in a window of the ship to destroy this strange looking monster as this was a perfectly upsetting moment.
Bottom line is that this is a much better sequel
after Alien 3 but it took me a while to like it. It is a true monster flick
with plenty of fantastic effects and CGI
work involved. Ripley is a clone this time and acts
differently but she has her same
instincts about the creatures which is
necessary. However, the downfall of this film with
all that's going on it's way too fictious
compared to the previous sequels and can
be a real disappointment to the fans.
But, it's fun to watch for the monstrous
moments and corniness that is going on.
The acting is
greatly performed as Sigourney Weaver (Ellen Ripley) really seemed to know what she was doing
as a resurrected one trying to learn
about life and showing a different side
to her character. She showed a true beastly violent bewhavior near the beginning of her performance as well as doing well acting untrustworthy using a basketball towards someone else as if playing with him. Plus was great by acting mellow too when having discussions on what will happen. Reacts perfectly weak in another scene when the queen alien has a problem and gets into this nicely. Plus does well being upset in other scene's too.
Winona Ryder (Annalee Call) looked perfect for her
role in the film showing great
expressions to her part in it as she
always would fit to be in an Alien film. Does a great job with her sharp attitude as well as showing a good tough and aggressive behavior in other parts of the story. Reacts well to stuff as well as doing a good job by having a conversation with others. She was always a true character actress.
Dominique Pinon (Vriess) seemed to stand out very well in his role with his small features in which he does well at being sarcastic as well as having a good hyped up behavior to everything. Plus reacts well to acid being dropped on his head and acting in pain within this.
Ron Perlman (Johner) had the perfect looks as
a roughneck in the film bringing his
aggression out nicely as well as his
sarcastic attitude. He for sure stood out the most out of all the cast by acting loud and tough as well as showing an arrogant attitude as well as being convincingly cocky too. Yet shows a good courageous hearted behavior later on in the story as this looked powerful to watch and sticks out in your mind too. He was always a great character actor.
Gary Dourdan (Christie) made himself a perfect
fighting warrior in this film with his
great tough expressions and fast paced
actions. Shows a good strong personality as well as having a believeable no nonsense type of attitude too. Seemed to do well with his forceful blocking too and seemed to have a perfect hype for his reactions to things.
Dan Hedeya (General Perez) of course portrayed a
nice evil General of the ship as he made
his role so real that you wouldn't want
to deal with him. He shows a great sneering behavior as well as someone who you do not care to trust by what he does. Packs a punch big time and shows off a perfect slick viciousness too.
Of course there's a supporting role by
horror film veteran Brad Dourif (Dr. Gediman) as a doctor who comes across very well
and almost sane too.... almost sane until
you keep watching the film. Was very different in this one compared to his other work as he seemed different. Proved to be a perfect versatile actor. He always
delivered with every movie I saw him in.
Ripley has an

Some bloody gunshots
A guy is frozen and his body crumbles
Aliens slaughter one another
An alien bites a guy's head
Corpses with their chests torn out
A man's head is smashed by an alien
A baby alien comes tearing through
John Frizzell has
so many powerful moments with his
orchestral music used in this film as it
sounds terrific like in any of the Alien movies. I have no criticism at all. Alot of great trombone playing as well as violin music sounding perfectly loud. Plus alot of great drum rolling as well as the odd flute sounds in which alot of the other kinds of music from the previous flicks almost sounded similar to this one. All of it brilliantly done. It also has a great fast pace for the adventureous moments for the chasing scenes with banging metal sounds as all of this really worked in having a great action theme to it all.
Ripley: [voiceover] My
mommy always said there were no monsters.
No real ones. But there are.
the Alien "baby" emerges from
the Queen's womb]
Dr. Gediman: You are... a
beautiful, beautiful, butterfly.
She is severely fuckable, isn't she?

asshole they're putting out?
Who do I have to fuck to get off this
Johner: I can get you off. Maybe
not the boat.
Don't push me, little Call. If you hang
with us for a while, you'll find out I am
not the man with whom to fuck!
Earth, man. What a shithole.
Hey, Vriess, you got a socket wrench?
Maybe she just needs an oil change. Can't
believe I almost fucked it.
Vriess: Yeah, like you never
fucked a robot.
God, I am so tired.
Johner: Sleep when you die, man.
Call: Jesus Christ, Johner, what do
you put in this shit, battery acid?
Johner: Just for color.
So, I hear you, like, ran into these
Johner: What did you do?
Ripley: I died.
WHAT'S IN FUCKING SIDE ME?
Ripley: There's a monster in your
chest. These guys hijacked your ship, and
they sold your cryotube to this... human,
and he put an alien inside of you. It's a
really nasty one. And in a few hours,
it's gonna burst its way through your rib
cage, and you're gonna die. Any
Purvis: Who are you?
Ripley: I'm the monster's mother.
I thought you were dead!
Ripley: Yeah, I get that a lot.
My authorization code is E-A, T-M, E.
What a waste of ammo. Must be a chick
I'm not the mechanic here, Ironsides! I
mostly just hurt people!
Wren: I think you'll find that things
have changed a great deal since your
Ripley: Oh, I doubt that.
Call: He is breeding an alien
species. More than dangerous. If those
things get loose, it's gonna make the
Lacerta Plague look like a fucking square
Perez: Ellen Ripley died trying to
wipe this species out. For all intents
and purposes, she succeeded!
Does it grow?
Dr. Gediman: Yeah. Very rapidly.
Ripley: It's a queen.
Dr. Gediman: How did you know
Ripley: She'll breed. You'll die.
Everyone in the company will die.

You can't fly one of these things?
