Overview

Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), the sole survivor from the original ALIEN, is awakened after 57 years of drifting through space, her stories disbelieved by Company executives who tell her that the alien's planet is now inhabited and colonized. When contact is suddenly lost with the colonists, Ripley returns to the planet with a squad of marines, an android (Lance Henriksen), and a Company executive (Paul Reiser) with a mission of his own. Once on the planet, no survivors can be found except for Newt, a little girl who awakens motherly instincts in Ripley just in time for the acid-blooded aliens to attack in what quickly becomes a one-sided battle for sheer survival. Considered by many to be the best of the series, ALIENS is a fast-paced, high-intensity thrill ride that set a new standard for action films and cemented director James Cameron's status as one of Hollywood's leading directors following the success of THE TERMINATOR. Weaver received an Academy Award nomination and became a feminist hero for her strong, sensitive performance as the survivor Ripley, while costars Reiser, Henriksen, and Bill Paxton all give career-making performances in this landmark sci-fi extravaganza.
In this cathartic sequel to ALIEN, Ripley is rescued after years of hibernation in space and reluctantly drawn into a second encounter with the deadly xenomorphs, this time as part of a gung-ho platoon of narines. James Cameron's film is truly one of the greatest action movies of all time.

USA Today 01-03-1992 "...[A] top-drawer sequel..."
New York Times 07-18-1986 "...A flaming, flashing, crashing, crackling blow-em-up show that keeps you popping from your seat....[Weaver] is a one-woman army..."
Los Angeles Times 07-18-1986 "...Canny, ironically funny and certainly successful when Weaver's around....ALIENS is a perfectly honorable sequel, taut, inexorably paced..."

Worth a buy (but)

While the picture is still awfully grainy in some areas that were painfully missed in the digital enhancement of this movie (if such a thing was done) There are places though where the picture is perfect and excels upon the original movie and are stunningly gorgeous. But in the end it was a job mostly half done and there should have been taken more efforts to clean it up. The artwork you get is nice, the booklet is also a nice addition along with the box to keep it all in. The annoying ribbon around everything inside the box is not so necessary by any means. The price is a steal and any lover of this movie will get what they want out of this to add to their collection. 4 out of 5
