This has to be one of my all time favourite science fiction films. While very different from Alien, this film manages to deliver more action while at the same time carry the same tense atmosphere throughout.
In my eyes, Aliens is the best movie out of the alien quadrilogy. A fast pace storyline and excellent action scenes, combine to makes this movie one I can watch over and over again. There were strong... Read more performances from all the cast, which brought more to their already diverse rolls which created unforgettable characters.
One of my favourite movies of all time! The special edition even features extra scenes that weren't shown in the director's cut. What I especially enjoyed is the director's narrative of the movie... Read more, James Cameron explains how the project to create a story and film the movie was presented to him, as well as explains some features and special effects of the movie. Gale Ann Hurd (the producer) also explains some of the making of the movie, including that James Cameron had to pay for fancy robotic lasers out of his own pocket as the budget didn't allow them, and how she doubled as Vasquez in one scene of the movie. Hicks, Hudson, Bishop and Vasquez give their narratives and talk about their relationships with the other actors and certain points of the movie (Vasquez can do chin-ups and wasn't standing on a box at all!) The wee girl (Newt) also gives her narrative and talks about how her friends, to this day, tease her with her infamous line "they mostly come out at night....mostly". It was very interesting and can't wait to see the bonus disc to get more in depth detail. If you haven't seen it - get it out! Lots of fun, lots of action, lots of aliens and lots of great memorable lines - great fun!
Awesome follow up to the first one. This one shows more of the Aliens terrifying abilities. A must see movie for anyone that likes action/horror/sc-fi.
Love this film and is still exciting and suspensful after a number of viewings. In my opinion the best of the alien movies.
Brillant Love all the Alien series. Could watch over and over again.
I have always been a huge fan of the Alien movies, apart from the last one. And Sigourney Weaver delivers as she always does. Tough, strong, and determined! I would watch it over and over, and never... Read more get sick of it. The suspense and action is amazing!
Way better version than the theatrical release! The added scenes increased the depth of the already good story.
Not as good Alien but edge of the seat for most of the time. Its good to watch all four 1 after the other
Great follow-up to the 1st Alien movie, Where the original movie was a sci-fi thriller/monster movie, the second installment is a rollicking action sci-fi with great effects and story line pitting Ripley... Read more as a mother figure to a young girl up against a terrifying alien queen-along with hordes of its offspring.
