Fifty-seven years after her ordeal with an extraterrestrial creature, Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team during hypersleep, only to horrifically discover human settlements have popped up on the alien planet of LV-426. Ripley agrees to return to the planet to help out a group of cocksure, tough-as-nails space Marines investigate the sudden breakdown of communications from LV-426. The whole crew (with MAD ABOUT YOU’s Paul Reiser in tow) land on the planet...AND THEN SHIT GETS REAL.
James Cameron picked up where Ridley Scott left off and turned up the action to 11. It’s not easy to follow up one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time, and everyone involved seemed hesitant to pull the trigger...except for James Cameron. Refusing to write about anyone else but Ripley, Cameron crafted the perfect story to lure Sigourney Weaver back to the iconic role, and the rest is history.
Horror fans love ALIEN, while action fans prefer ALIENS. But one thing they can both agree on is that they are both enduring masterpieces of cinema. You will see aliens come out of the walls and Bill Paxton scream "THAT'S IT! GAME OVER MAN! GAME OVER..." in this big-budgeted, swiftly paced action sequel that oozes with thrills and a feminist subtext.
Shots will be fired, and things will explode, so stay frosty, Marine, because the bitch is back! (Greg MacLennan)
