Aliens 4 Movie Review Summary

Actors: Sigourney Weaver, Wynona Rider

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Aliens 4

A crew of space smugglers deliver the unconscious crew of a hijacked ship to a government ship with a secret mission. The government ship has successfully "resurrected", ie, cloned Ellen Ripley (of the Aliens Trilogy series) from the prison planet she died on 200 years earlier. It is Ripley's DNA they want because from it, they can clone an alien queen who can breed. The government thinks it can use the aliens as military weapons, so the hijacked crew is needed to be hosts for the alien spores hatched from the queen's eggs. Since she has served her purpose, Ripley is kept on board the government ship as an interesting hybrid, neither human nor alien.

Once paid for their delivery, the smugglers get ready to depart, but oops, the aliens that have been bred from the smuggler's cargo are as smart as ever and they have escaped, killing smugglers and ship crew. The survivors warily band together with Ripley, aware of her blood connection to the aliens, and try to fight back and destroy the aliens while the ship continues on a pre-programmed and locked course for earth.

200 years after the conclusion of Alien 3, Humanity is able to resurrect Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) through the process of cloning and the scientists successfully take the Queen Alien out of her. But, Ripley's DNA gets mixed up with the Queen's and she begins to develop certain alien characteristics. The scientists begin breeding the aliens, but they later escape. Soon the Xeno-morphs are running amok on the ship, which is on course to earth. The Queen then gives birth to a deadly new breed of alien, which could spell disaster for the entire human race. It's up to Ripley and a band of space pirates to stop the ship before it reaches earth.

Crews of military vessel and smuggler ship become forced to escape "aliens" or become the next hosts.
