Without doubt one of the greatest series of films of all time. Repeatedly and intelligently re-inventing itself from dark suspense-filled sci-fi/horror classic to blockbusting action-packed extravaganza, followed by a brooding arthouse epic and finally resurrected with an exuberant imaginative clone variant.
Contains Ridley Scott's 'Alien' (1979), in which the crew of a deep-space mining vessel come across something decidedly unpleasant on a mysterious planet. After leaving the desolate planet, they realise that something has survived and is on their ship.
In James Cameron's sequel, 'Aliens' (1986), sole survivor Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) and a team of Space Marines return to the alien's home planet to investigate some mysterious happenings, but soon a new deadly game of cat-and-mouse begins.
In David Fincher's dark and brooding 'Alien 3' (1992) Ripley crash lands on an old prison planet for convicted murderers - but something has hitched a ride with her.
Finally, in Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 'Alien Resurrection' (1997), two hundred years after Ellen Ripley died bearing the Alien Queen, a group of scientists successfully produce clones of both her and the alien. The new Ripley is different to the original in several respects, but some things never change. It is not long before Ripley is forced to team up with a gang of smugglers to repel the acid-blooded killing machines.
