I can see where they were going with "rise" or creation imagery, both biblically, and self-referentially to Alien 3, as well as teach an Alien 4 to roll over, beg, and do tricks. It just didn't work for me. Even taking into account Oram's fickle oscillation between blind faith, and then anally retentive cold logic by the numbers.
I agree the shooting of the cave scene was for the most part picturesque. I didn't care for chestburst/xeno animatronics/cgi or whatever the heck it was. The drop-ship lab neo-burst effects looked much better by comparison.
