Storyline: Fifty seven years after Ellen Ripley survived her disastrous ordeal, her escape vessel is recovered after drifting across the galaxy as she slept in cryogenic stasis. Back on earth, nobody believed her story about the "Aliens" on the planet LV-426. After the "Company" orders the colony on LV-426 to investigate, however, all communication with the colony is lost. The Company enlists Ripley to aid a team of tough, rugged space marines on a rescue mission to the now partially terraformed planet to find out if there are aliens or survivors. As the mission unfolds, Ripley will be forced to come to grips with her worst nightmare, but even as she does, she finds that the worst is yet to come.

A simple explanation...
Let me preface the remainder of my comments by saying that I DO, in fact, enjoy this movie tremendously. It's one of the best examples of purely escapist filmmaking ever.

But one of the best MOVIES ever? Hardly.

The reason that "Aliens" is undeniably the most popular installment of its series is that it's so bloody easy to understand. It's ridiculously manipulative of its audience-- in exactly the same ways as a certain OTHER overblown blockbusters by the self-perpetuated "King of the World."

"Aliens" is simply a big, loud, explosive war movie; NOTHING more. It's a very well-made and engaging war movie, but it lacks any semblance of thematic interpretation or depth, as is present in both the first and third episodes of the series. Those films have much more to say about the sci-fi genre and humanity in general than merely "Hey, We can take on these nasties.!" And both "Alien" and "Alien 3" are vastly superior films to this one. "Aliens" takes the original idea, and simply re-hashes it, only much bigger and louder than before.

The plot is every bit as predictable as an episode of Scooby-Doo. OF COURSE Ripley's going back to the planet. And OF COURSE there's more going on than just a downed satellite connection. OF COURSE the aliens 'get' the characters you love-- and the ones you hate. The aliens do exactly what you'd expect them to do... except they die much more easily than one would expect from "the perfect organism." But, if they didn't explode when shot, this movie would be VASTLY different, in a very bad way.

Ripley's relationships with both Newt and Hicks are completely tacked-on elements, to make it seem like this film is about more than just a bug-hunt. But it isn't. It's especially apparent in the Special Edition release, which explains much more about Ripley's daughter.

And why does a cargo loader need to have a flame-thrower at the end of its 'arms?' This film takes entirely too much for granted, relying on convenience and its audience's willingness to accept just about anything that it does-- because they've been so thoroughly manipulated by its guilty (or should I say guilt-LESS) technique.

Still, this movie does have its redeeming qualities, as does each film in the Alien franchise.

Alien: Best idea, most well-developed subtext about the crew being expendable-- very unsettling undertones about a frightening direction in which our society is headed.

Alien 3: Best plot, best thematic development, best symbolism. A GROTESQUELY under-rated film. It works on SO many levels, and each one has something uniquely terrifying to say.

Alien Resurrection: Winona Ryder, and best set design. That's a stretch, b/c this is NOT a very good movie, but it does have some merits.

As for "Aliens," it has by far the most consistent acting of any of the films: Only Veronica Cartwright from "Alien" and Charles Dance and Charles S. Dutton from "Alien 3" are even remotely comparable to the unusually high-caliber performances given by this ensemble cast-- particularly Jenette Goldstien as Vasquez and Bill Paxton as Hudson. And Sigourney's performance is a given... The special effects are also the best in the series; they hold up well, even in comparison to "Titanic" or "The Phantom Menace."

All in all, "Aliens" is enjoyable, if only because it asks absolutely NOTHING of you. You'll sit there and be manipulated into buying all of the unnecessary plot elements, and you won't even care, because something else will happen before you have time to think about it.

Rating: 6 out of 10. Great acting and f/x, but an UNBELIEVABLY formulaic plot, typical of Cameron's brilliantly manipulative writing techniques (re: Titanic; it's almost the same d--n movie...) NOTHING going on beneath the surface. A big, dumb war movie... but it's an EXCEPTIONAL big, dumb war movie.
My mommy always said there were no monsters - no real ones - but there are.
Ripley has been found in deep space by a salvage ship and brought back to a space station to be awoken from her 57 year sleep. Here she is mortified to find that the planet on which herself and her now deceased Nostromo crew found the Alien, LV-426, has been colonised by Weyland-Yutani Company. Suffice to say that when The Company representative, Burke, tells her that all contact is lost, she's not in the least bit surprised. Unable to get anyone to believe her about what happened to the Nostromo crew, Ripley is cajoled into going back to LV-426 with a crack team of space marines to seek, destroy or rescue...

How do you make a sequel to one of the finest, most loved modern era films ever? This was something that director James Cameron must have pondered on many a dark night once he had agreed to make Aliens. The answer was to rightly not copy the format so brilliantly laid down by Ridley Scott and his team for Alien, but to embrace its mood and enhance it with thrills spills and exhilaration. This was only Cameron's third feature length movie, and here he was working with the crew who had made Scott's movie so special. Also writing as well as directing, this could have gone very wrong indeed, but Cameron rose to the challenge admirably and set up his marker on how his film would succeed. Keep the premise simple and seamlessly connected to Scott's film, and lets have more. Not just one bad ass acid bleeding alien, but an army of them, and their mother too!

They mewstly come at night - mewstly.

Where Alien was a splicing of sci-fi wonderment and basic horror terrors, Aliens is a blend of war film staples to compliment both of those earlier picture things. Thus in keeping with Cameron's more is more work in progress skeleton. Another thing that Cameron instinctively called right was to make Aliens about Ripley (Sigorney Weaver simply brilliant), it's her story. Be it a parental thread or a feminist heroine fighting off the phallic hoards, cinema got in Ripley's extension one of its finest and strongest female characters ever (Weaver was nominated for Best Actress but lost out to Marlee Matlin for Children of a Lesser God).

Thematically Aliens has been pored over in regards to metaphors about Vietnam, foreign policy and corporate greed at any cost, and rest assured that Aliens isn't merely one big excuse for a shoot them up bonanza. But realistically, and explaining why it was such a huge box office success, it's with the thrills and terror that Aliens most succeeds. The action scenes are slick and at times breath taking, and the tension is often palpable. None more so as we enter the film at the half way point, because here we realise that we have characters to care about. Blood, brains and brawn, all led by a heroine of considerable guile and guts. 10/10
The "perfect organism" en masse in the perfect movie
"Aliens" is, without question, the greatest science fiction action/adventure movie of all time. This is a spellbinding, jaw-dropping epic of a movie masterpiece that pulls off the rarest of feats -- it actually tops its predecessor, the inimitable "Alien", even going so far as to make it look the slightest bit campy and predictable by comparison (though it still remains a groundbreaking, chilling, landmark science fiction/horror classic).

"Aliens" interweaves competing themes and juxtaposes action, character development, suspense, cameraderie, fear and heroism brilliantly. The movie is far more multi-faceted than the original, which surpassed it on the horror and suspense fronts only. "Aliens" adds doses of realism to make the entire viewing experience seem more "human" -- the Hudson whining at times seems ad-libbed, the dialogue is unmatched in a movie of its genre and the heroism is, remarkably, under-glorified. The characters make mistakes throughout the movie, a deft touch by Cameron and counter to the typical Hollywood action hero "kick ass" mentality.

Every single character in "Aliens" is likeable at one time or another, even the villain Burke. Think of all the great ensemble casts you've seen in the past, whether they be on television ("The Mary Tyler Moore Show", "Cheers") or on the silver screen ("Fried Green Tomatoes", "The Shawshank Redemption", etc.). Psychologically, this is an important method to convey and establish a connection between the viewer and the movie. Conversely, movies that fail to develop that connection sufficiently tend to suffer as a result. "Aliens" far and away does the best job of this in the entire series, well ahead of the original and light-years ahead of the successors.

Speaking of which, the third installment was flawed, choppy and illogically constructed but nonetheless a worthy effort and the fourth a debacle in both form and function. My suggestion is that the viewer pop in the original, view and enjoy its atmosphere and cat-and-mouse terror, then immediately view the roiling, adrenaline-inducing, light-speed second installment. You will walk away from that session marvelling at how this franchise was born and raised. See the third one at a later date and consider the fourth one a wayward child and move on.

Could be the greatest sequel of all time.
Sequels rarely stand up to the original. Jaws, Jurassic Park and Predator are all big Hollywood franchises that started at a very high standard but as time continued they simply grew worse and worse. However there are those sequels that many believe to be better than their predecessors. The Godfather part 2 and The Empire strikes back are a few of the names but in my opinion the best of this rare breed is the 2nd in the Alien saga. Aliens. The story starts with Ripley being found in space, shes has been floating their for 56 years but due to hyper sleep hasn't aged a day. The company Weyland Yutani picks here up and brings here back to a space station, where She tells them of her encounter of the Alien, which is met with ridicule and disbelief. However the company looses contact with the farmers that mine on the alien planet and together with a group of marines Ripley returns to face her demons. The acting is the best the series ever offered with Sigourney Weaver picking up an Oscar nomination and rightly so. Michael Biehn and Lance Hennrikson are very impressive, giving great depth to their characters. Carrie Henn is a great new comer, but for some odd reason has never worked again. The thrills are in high supply here as are the often grisly scares. The Aliens look even meaner here than they did in the original and the Queen when she appears is possibly the most frightening creature ever to grace are screens. Another great point Aliens offers is the fact you care for its characters, Even the asshole marine types. This means that when ever peril is near we feel even more anxious, simply because we have grown attached to those for whom the danger looms. Few movies these days have that quality, indeed the only action orientated film of the last 15 years that had this factor is the original Jurassic Park. So to conclude Aliens is really worth seeing. Its well acted, well written and highly entertaining. You would be a fool to give this one a miss.
Seriously overrated action sci-fi flick
ALIENS (1986) is another example of Hollywood reeling the audience in making a bigger, splashier, flashier sequel fooling many of them thinking that it beats the original. While the original "Alien" was a quality, forward-thinking sci-fi film of sustained tension culminating in horror and terror, this sequel "Aliens" is the standard pump-up-the-volume, loud, proud, and extremely empty sequel. The dated argument is perhaps not the best one since many movies (even good ones) from the 80s appear dated now. But the best sci-fi thrillers from the 80s (Robocop, Terminator, Predator, Hidden) still to this day have something at their core that make them universal and stand the test of time. "Aliens" does not. It essentially is just a mindless action flick with annoying, one-dimensional characters, including the lead.

Sigourney Weaver got an undeserved Best Actress nomination playing Ellen Ripley (the only surviving member from Ridley Scott's "Alien"). Weaver literally has one facial expression the entire flick...MEAN! I didn't see any semblance of depth or complexity to her character that would warrant an Oscar nom. She just looks like she could bore a hole through everyone she stares at. Her voice inflection is the same throughout the film, whether she's mad, happy, or sad. Basically, she is just given a lot to do to make her seem tough and brave, but most of it is very manipulative. We get the point Cameron...Everyone else is stupid and weak, but Ripley is stroooong!

James Cameron directs this sequel and it is nowhere near the class of its predecessor. Frozen in space for many years, Ripley is revived and asked to return to the alien planet LV-426 to act as adviser on what happened to a colony of humans. The company financing the mission uses one its top executives Burke (Paul Reiser in an actual good performance as a shifty corporate shill) to persuade her. Ripley has nightmares from her ALIEN experience. She eventually agrees in part to try to beat her demons.

Ripley and Burke are accompanied by an escort of Marines led by the green Lt Gorman (William Hope) and Sgt Apone (Al Matthews). The Marine grunt include Pvts Hicks, Hudson, Vasquez (Michael Biehn, Bill Paxton, Jenette Goldstein). Actually, Biehn as Hicks is quite good. He brings a solid, unassuming hero quality to his role. But the rest of the Marines are standard, chest-pumping, obscenity-spewing annoyances. Paxton's Hudson is the standard comic relief and Vasquez' macho-tough-girl-acts-like-a-guy character is very contrived. Also on-board is the android Bishop (Lance Henriksen in a slick, convincing performance). Of course this is a problem for Ripley after what happened to the crew in "Alien". Biehn, Reiser, and Henriksen are the only actors to really rise above the weak material and formulate convincing characters.

On the planet, the group finds that the colony has been eradicated and encounters a horde of alien creatures that they must fight off. The sole survivor is a little girl Newt (Carrie Henn, who is second billed for some odd reason; why isn't Biehn second billed?). Without barely saying a word, Newt is one of the most pretentious kids I've ever seen in a flick and her screaming is maddening...RIIIIIPLEY! As they get whittled down to just a few, in the end Ripley saves the day.

"Aliens" suffers from being much ado about nothing. Beneath the action, there is really no story or strong characters. Most of the characters are cliché: the ineffective officer in charge, the wisecracking grunts who spout obscenities at each other so we'll know they have a strong bond, the kid who is smarter than the adults, the saboteur (idea stolen from "Alien").

The other sci-fi action 80s films I mentioned above all have something going for them underneath the action, mainly multiple genres working together in perfect synergy and have distinct, interesting characters. They all explore to some degree the conflict between different beings and at the end of those films, there is a provocative open-endedness and ambiguity that still resonates today. "Aliens" is just action...that's it!
Best movie to date.
I think this movie is the best movie made. The graphic violence, it's realism in a non-realistic way, and the acting made it a high quality film. I've ordered the directors cut that comes out June 1, 1999. I can't weight for the new stuff.
James Cameron did it with Aliens and Terminator 2: ACTION PACKED REHASHES!!! WOOT!
Aliens is a great example of a decent film, it ranks high as a sequel and definitely is the best one sofar. The whole thing with James Cameron is he loves to over exaggerate which is why this is such a good movie.

Its not often you get a good 2nd movie although there are some great underrated examples: Rocky 2, terminator 2, Rambo 2 and this just has to be included as its a fist gripping action movie, beans role in this film is far by the best and i highly recommend you buy this movie, another 10/10 from here! Alien World meets earth! I hope you found this review useful. Because IMDb demands at least 10 sentances and i question why!
A rarity in the world of sequels....
Can it be possible; a sequel that is as good, if not better, than the original? Yes, it not only can be possible, it is, and "Aliens" not only proves a fantastic sci-fi movie in its own right but again proves the power that Sigourney Weaver has in the right film, as well as the over-powering direction of James Cameron.

Picking up 200 years after the fact, Weaver is once again thrown into a battle along with the Space Marines that are called to the planet where Weaver's team originally found the alien of the first film. The colonies that have been built there have been obliterated of all life and they are being sent there to wipe out every last alien on the planet.

Of course, in a movie like this, nothing is as it seems, and that's a positive quality. Weaver misses nary a beat as Ripley, a woman as un-trusting of aliens, most humans and just about anything else in general as she was before. It's only when they discover a small girl (Carrie Hehn) left alive that she finally finds something that perhaps shows she has some feeling left.

Of course, there are other great performances by Biehn, Henriksen, Goldstein, Paxton and Reiser, playing well fleshed-out characters against a backdrop of desperation, fear and outright gut-wrenching horror as they find out their mission wasn't as easy as they all thought.

But then comes James Cameron. Having proven his mettle with "The Terminator", he works with a bigger budget and shows just as much ingenuity and flair for big, flashy action as any ten action directors. But even if the story seems routine, Cameron's approach is not; he makes every single moment seem as fresh now as if it were being seen for the first time in motion picture history. Always a good thing in science fiction, where there aren't exactly new ideas coming out every day.

As with the original "Alien" (and Cameron's "Terminator"), the last half-hour or so is so much edge-of-your-seat and nail-biting tension that you'll feel like a wrung-out wash rag by the time all is said and done, and rightly so. And, more than ever, you'll empathize with Weaver as her character fights not only for her own survival, but for that of others as well.

So, "Aliens" is great science fiction and great film-making, but is it a worthy addition to the saga? Most definitely, especially when you consider that most sci-fi films can't muster HALF the story this one does, much less a sequel to one.

Ten stars (eleven if I only could) to "Aliens", one of the best science fiction sequels ("Star Wars" movies excluded) ever.
Great SF action, but not in the same league as Alien
Ridley Scott's Alien quickly worked its way into my all-time Top 10 and has claimed a permanent place there ever since. Aliens, however, didn't impress me that much when I first saw it in a movie theatre in 1986. Apart from a couple of genuinely gruesome moments (like when the marines discover the cocooned colonists or when Ripley and Newt stumble upon the alien queen's egg chamber), I felt Aliens took a wrong turn when it replaced the slow grinding horror and terrifying uncertainty of Alien with 'bigger and more' all-out action. Even the effects seemed cheaper although seven years had passed since the production of the first film. I was entertained, but not overly impressed.

I still vacillate between loving and dismissing Aliens on a daily basis. Sometimes I feel it is nearly as good as the first one, although in a very different genre. Sometimes I find it too much of an '80s action movie' (I never liked those) with all the dumb clichés of the era being too evident. The extended cut, however, is definitely better. It adds more depth to the characters and provides a more epic experience overall.

Maybe you just have to lower your expectations after Alien, and watch Aliens for what it is: one of the best SF/horror action flicks from the 1980s.
The best movie ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Aliens is the best movie ever!! Fun with lots of cool action, scary aliens, and a ticked off Queen Alien, this movie is my favorite movie ever! Sigourney Weaver stars as Ripley, the only survivor of the Nostromo, where the first Alien film is placed on. 57 years have passed and Ripley's daughter has died and her story is met with disbelief. When Burke (Paul Reiser) and Lt. Gorman (William Hope) ask Ripley to join an expedition with Colonial Marines to LV-426, which is now being terraformed to be able to live on, because there has been no contact with the colony, Ripley says no. After having more dreams of the Alien, Ripley realizes that the only way to banish the Alien out of her dreams is to destroy them all. So she goes with the Marines, including Cpl. HIcks (Michael Biehn), Pvt. Vasquez (Jeanette Goldstein), and Pvt. Hudson (Bill Paxton).

When Ripley, Burke, Gorman, and the Marines reach the planet, they discover evidence of a major battle with the Aliens including the Alien's acid blood, but find no bodies of any kind. After checking out the main complex, Ripley and the rest discover Newt, a little girl, who is the only survivor of the colony. Ripley feels a sense of kinship and protectiveness to the little girl and decides to protect her with all of her power.

When the colony members are found in the building making the air, the Marines discover that the people were all used for incubators for the Aliens. After they watch a still live woman die from the escaping alien, they engage in a major battle with the aliens that totally decimates most of the team.

After the battle, the survivors-Ripley, Newt, Hicks, Burke, Gorman, Vasquez, and Hudson-decide to leave and nuke the planet from their ship. When an Alien kills the pilot and the co-pilot and the ship crashes, they are stuck on the planet. After setting up a safe place in the main colony complex, they decide to try and wait out until rescue comes. Bishop, an android (played by Lance Henriksen), goes to call the extra ship down to rescue them.

While the ship is coming, the others are attacked and most of them die. When Newt gets captured to become an incubator and Hicks is wounded, Ripley decides that she will not let that little girl die and goes in the nest. After a frantic search and a joyous reunion, Ripley realizes what is laying the eggs. The Queen, who is bigger than all the others. After Ripley destroys her eggs, the Queen goes on a rampage on a quest to kill Ripley.

With tons of action, lots of Aliens, a budding romance between Ripley and Hicks, and the rescue of Newt, this movie is the best movie ever! The last hour has some of the greatest action sequences in movie history, including the famous fight between Ripley and the Queen in the Power loader! This movie is so awesome so see it! You won't regret it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
