Aliens ()

directed by
featuring Sigourney Weaver, Carrie Henn, Michael Biehn, Lance Henriksen, Paul Reiser

Big-budget special effects, swiftly paced action, and a distinct feminist subtext from writer/director James Cameron turned what should have been a by-the-numbers sci-fi sequel into both a blockbuster and a seven-time Oscar nominee. Sigourney Weaver returns as Ellen Ripley, the last surviving crew member of a corporate spaceship destroyed after an attack by a vicious, virtually unbeatable alien life form. Adrift in space for half a century, Ripley grapples with depression until she's informed by her company's representative, Carter Burke (Paul Reiser) that the planet where her crew discovered the alien has since been settled by colonists. Contact with the colony has suddenly been lost, and a detachment of colonial marines is being sent to investigate. Invited along as an advisor, Ripley predicts disaster, and sure enough, the aliens have infested the colony, leaving a sole survivor, the young girl Newt (Carrie Henn). With the soldiers picked off one by one, a final all-female showdown brews between the alien queen and Ripley, who's become a surrogate mother to Newt. Several future stars made early career appearances in Aliens (1986), including Lance Henriksen, Bill Paxton, and Reiser. Karl Williams, Rovi Hide synopsis

Ages pretty good

by Poilu on Jul 15, 2014

Loved it when it first came out, it's a little dated now, with 80s hair on many of the actors, and cranky 1980s futuristic versions of computer graphics (like muddy old blue prints). But it's still got heart, and is still scary. The young Bill Paxton (later of Big Love fame) is way over the top with his overacting of the whiny space marine Hudson.
