Cameron hits his peak, Sigourney looks stunning and the atmosphere is electrifying.,
This review is from: Aliens - Special Edition  [DVD] (DVD)
Aliens is regarded as one of the greatest sci fi movies of all time and no wonder. Sigourney Weaver returns as Ripley, who now must go back to help finish off the aliens after eggs are found.
The dialogue is the real surprise here- great for a sci fi film even more surprising that James Cameron wrote it. This was Cameron at his absolute best. Sure Terminator 2 is a classic, but the script was weak and after that Cameron declined, though the box office paints a different picture.
Often seen as a plain old space shoot em up, this is a harsh criticism given that no action takes place for over an hour. The movie is more concerned with getting to know its characters and the dire situation they are in.
A superb haunting sequel- and the 154 min special edition is the only way to go.
