The first three Alien films have a unique kind of "magic" about them that I think make up the ideal Alien experience.
It is the "ALIEN" atmosphere: The first three films depict a very real world around a mysterious and terrifying ALIEN creature that you feared along with the well developed characters.
Alien Resurrection has a very different flavor. Although it has some serious moments, there are several areas of this film that are out-of-place in both the film and the saga: Alien Resurrection has a number of humorous scenes which I feel take away from the above described overall ALIEN experience. The director goes straight into the action very quickly in this film so the only well developed character is Ripley. I think that the Alien creature loses a lot of its majesty in this film mostly because of these two critical factors.
It is still a must-see film for any Alien fan. It is full of strong cinematic sequences that resonate in your head long after the film is over.
But go in expecting something different.
