Alien Resurrection | 1997 | R | - 5.9.8

A new, improved, genetically cloned Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) fights the Beast once again.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - No sex, but there is the implication of a sexual encounter between human and alien. Brief female frontal nudity in a non-sexual manner (one woman in a scientific test tube; another lying on an autopsy table). Some brief sexual banter and innuendo. A man suggestively massages a woman. A man physically threatens a woman in a sexually aggressive manner.

VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - Two violent, bloody gunfights, and several frightening, extremely graphic alien vs. human showdowns with human blood and acidic alien blood splattered about. A woman is choked and shocked with a tazer, a woman is shot, a woman drowns and a woman is bashed in the face with a metal weight. Several men are shot and killed, with bloody bullet holes. A man is bitten through his chest and dies, and a man gets bitten in his head; as he dies, he pulls out a portion of his own brains and examines them. A man's head is bitten in two by an alien (with exposed brains and gore). A man is rapidly frozen and breaks apart. A man's face is severely burned from alien acid blood. Several men are shown with bloody, gaping chest wounds. A man is incinerated. Several men are slaughtered by an alien, with blood splattering and pieces of flesh strewn about. A man's head is squeezed open by an alien. A woman stabs herself in the hand with a dagger. A man convulses and coughs blood as an alien bursts through his chest. A human/alien clone is torn apart and sucked out into space, piece by piece, through an airhole.

LANGUAGE 8 - Over 20 F-words, several anatomical references and scatological references, a few mild obscenities. One profane hand gesture.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
