Resurrection was terrible, almost a B movie. It was far worse than the third one, which itself was far from respectable.

Someone did make a good point about the aliens looking good underwater, which I would definitely have to agree with.
I think what really ruined this one for me was the dialogue: it wasn't just bad, but in fact so terrible as to be jarring enough on more than one occasion that I was reminded that I was watching a movie, breaking the suspended disbelief that makes a film really entertaining.

Resurrection was an Epic Fail in my book.

 TongueOut Why do people think this movie is not good.......
Um, it is terrible. This is one misfire that Juenet cannot live down. He made a comic book movie where the three preceding it had taken the subject matter as realistically as could be expected.
Gory when there should have been restraint, humor that was not funny,and a premise that asked the audience to be completely stupid. It brought what was close to becoming cliche all the way across the threshold.  The actors,ordinarily,were fine. But somehow this film made all of them into buffoons,and none of them deserved it. Sigourney Weaver is a solid character actress,but she painted herself
into a corner here;the scene where she finds her 7 counterparts,and proceeds to weep while incinerating them,was out of character for the film,and embarrassing. Winona Ryder was miscast in her role,and never once conveyed the conviction necessary for the part. Ron Perlman is almost always reliable,but here he is reduced to a misogynistic prick without the brains the Creator gave a goat.
   Dan Hedeya was fine as the idiot ex-husband on "Cheers",but displayed the same exact character here,sitcom twitches and all. Michael Wincott's subtle and nasty purr of a villainous voice was wasted here ,reduced to simplistic come-ons and useless insinuations.
    The story is shoddy,the pacing clunky, and the rest of the cast reduced to stock nonsense. I will not begin to approach the third act,as it is absurd beyond belief,full of bad special effects and
worse(and more woefully contrived) situations. Best forgotten,I wish I could have excluded it from the anthology that I purchased on blu-ray. I'll watch "Micmacs",instead,and hope for better."Amelie" sure was.

After the rather dull Alien 3 I lost all hope for the Alien franchise. Alien: Resurrection made me a believer again.

I loved this movie, I mean it was gory and with grotesque images, probably it wasn't as good as the first two movies, but I think this was pretty good even compared to many other saga's fourth part you know like "Jaws: The Revenge". Thumbup

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
