Product Description
In this action-packed sequel to Alien, Sigourney Weaver returns as Ripley, the only survivor from man-kind's first encounter with the monstrous Alien. Her account of the Alien and the fate of her crew are received with skepticism-until the mysterious disappearance of colonists on LV-426 lead her to join a team of high-tech colonial marines sent in to investigate.

Additional Features
The Director's Cut of Aliens includes 17 minutes of bonus footage. The added scenes are intermittently spread out through the film, fleshing out certain characters and plot. Included is a much-needed explanation of what happened to the colony, LV-426 (the decimated planetary outpost the Space Marines are sent to). In addition, there is more focus on the emotional state of Ripley (Signourey Weaver) after she is awoken following 60 years of space hibernation--only to find that all the people she once loved have since passed on. This in turn clarifies the strong bond between the little girl (Newt) and Ripley, which is highly relevant to the climactic showdown between the two mothers (Ripley as Newt's surrogate parent, and the alien queen as maternal protector).

==================================================

Here Be Dragons, e.g. spoilers!

To be blunt, I like this one every bit as the first – and certainly more than the third. It’s nowhere near as scary as the original, but it’s a good deal more exciting. And it delivers more than mere excitement; there is some food for thought, too. Just like Alien is SF horror with a difference, Aliens is SF action with a difference.

Ruby has suggested that the finale with the Alien – but not Ripley – flying away into the vacuum of space is highly improbable, and she may be right; my physics education has always been neglected. But I greatly enjoyed the boxing match before that. That was an ingenious idea. Nothing succeeds like simplicity, and what could be simpler than a face-to-face combat with “bare limbs”?

My only quibble is that the first finale is a trifle overblown (mighty explosions, mass destruction, last-second salvation, you know the drill). But that’s not exactly something untypical for Jimmy Cameron. It’s part and parcel of the man, and one has to take it or leave it. Considering his virtues as director and screenwriter, a mild degree of epic megalomania is a small price to pay.

(Well, one more thing to complain about. Newt’s proclivity to scream is unbearable. The pitch is way too high, not to mention the dynamics. Probably it has to be marked “fffff” in the score.)

Unlike Ruby, I find the macho marines rather amusing. Isn’t Bill Paxton’s yellowish character hilarious? When in the beginning, knowing nothing of what they are about to face, he is bragging to Ripley what amazing guns they have, I laughed a great deal. Personally I would have added a Ripley rejoinder in the script, something like [since they have so many so great guns] “Have you got any brains and guts as well?” As it turned out, he didn’t have either in excess.

Also, not all marines are hot-air balloons just about to burst under the pressure of testosterone. Michael Biehn’s character is rather more human – and humane. It is nice that he survived, no? And there are some cool gender jokes among the rest:

“Hey Vasquez, have you ever been mistaken for a man?”
“No. Have you?”

Now that’s cute. On the whole, the characterisation in this movie is not on par with the previous one, but at least Ripley is further developed from the somewhat one-dimensional, if vivid, creature from Alien. In this respect, the mother-and-daughter relationship with Newt adds a special flavour. It will never strike you as something original or profound, but it’s kind of touching. Of course there’s a spooky android, brilliantly played by Lance Henriksen, who easily outshines the bunch of marines and comes to a most memorable end.

One thing I like more than in the first film is the expanded role of the nasty company (Blackmail & Co. it must be named). It’s an effective counterpoint to the mass slaughter of the already-much-too-familiar monsters. What I dislike is that the company guy is played by a thoroughly mediocre fellow and that some of his arguments are just a tad too blatant. He should be smarter than that. Still, it is nice to have a wider social dimension of the story.

In conclusion, I’m afraid I have to be considered a Cameron fan by now. Nobody’s perfect, after all. For my money, the man provides stupendous visual entertainment with just the right dose of substance not to feel like I’m wasting my time. ( )

Space marines visit a colony infested by deadly aliens.

There's a lot of action movie cliches and general James Camerony corniness that comes pretty close to wrecking it, but overall it's extremely effective. And it's a lot scarier than I'd remembered it being.

Alien es un organismo perfecto, una máquina de matar cuya superioridad física sólo puede competir con su agresividad. La oficial Ripley y la tripulación de la nave “Nostromo” se habían enfrentado, en el pasado, a esa monstruosa criatura. Y sólo Ripley sobrevivió a la masacre. Después de vagar por el espacio durante varios años, Ripley fue rescatada. Durante ese tiempo, el planeta de Alien ha sido colonizado. Pero, de repente, se pierde la comunicación con la colonia y, para investigar los motivos, se envía una expedición de marines espaciales, capitaneados por Ripley. Allí les esperan miles de espeluznantes criaturas. Alien se ha reproducido y esta vez la lucha es por la supervivencia de la Humanidad.
