The definitive sci-fi horror movie, a must-see! This is one of those rare sequels which exceeds its predecessor, which is high praise, considering that the original 'Alien' is a classic that also warrants a See Now! rating.

Whereas the original was very much about a foreboding atmosphere with a bit of a shortage on special effects (which is to be expected for a 1979 movie), the 1986 sequel leverages advances in special effects to fit right in with many 80s action movies. What makes it a classic in its own right is the story and performances by the cast. Filled with one-liners that are memorable long after the credits roll, it deftly combines action with comedy, on top of a really formidable monster villain.

Director James Cameron has put together one memorable film. He does to science fiction movies what Alfred Hitchock did to mystary and suspense. \"Aliens\" is a sequel which is better than the first \"Alien.\" Sigourney Weaver is back as ripley, only this time, she needed some help. She\'s not only facing one slimy creature, she is up against hundreds of them. All coming at her at the same time. This is one of the most scariest movies in years. Cameron knows how to make a science fiction movie.
