Aliens Reviews

Aug 19, 2022
An extremely ambitious sequel that took a pretty sacred first film and built upon it in the most satisfying way. It’s a fantastic sci-fi movie. It’s a fantastic action movie. It’s a fantastic horror movie.

A masterclass across multiple genres that is, unarguably, one of the greatest sequels and, even, films of all-time.

It is in its simplest form a fight between two mothers over their children to me, given the genre and the time in which the film was made thats rather remarkable.

If more filmmakers took Cameron's approach to sequel-making, Hollywood's franchises might not seem so dull and homogenized today.

Around 100 minutes of some of the finest tension building and breathless action ever committed to celluloid.

Just when you think the movie is over, Cameron comes back with another piece of action more daring than the last. While Aliens has more than its share of special effects, the heart of the film's success is its intense, unrelenting and spectacular action.

Perhaps the greatest exemplar of science-fiction, action, and horror faultlessly blended together into one film.

An often astonishingly engaging and entertaining sequel...

The moment the action is situated in Acheron everything is simplified and loses its mystery. [Full Review in Spanish]

Eschewing the claustrophobic foreboding of Alien, Cameron takes all the anxieties and fears that had been built in the original and refracts it through his action movie sensibilities to create a smart action thriller.

At any rate, it's an exciting and well-made film, inspires great conversations, and presents some of the most appealing women characters in the movies.

(Sigourney) Weaver proves to be a formidable action hero.. One of just a few females in a film filled with aggro males, she doesn't just hold her own, she owns the movie.

Sigourney Weaver is merely terrific... When she straps on her armament to do battle with the aliens, she makes Sylvester Stallone look like a pipsqueak.

It's so rare to see a sequel live up and maybe surpass (depending on if you like your horror with plenty of action or not) the original, but Aliens does...
Oct 31, 2018
Under [James] Cameron's care, Aliens emerges as that rarest of sequels that, if not surpassing its predecessor, stands comfortably alongside it as an equal.

Beyond dispute, however, is the film's timeless worth as a cathartic work, especially in terms of its accidentally commentary on the sexism of the corporate structure.

The whole finale is white-knuckled, some of the best aciton and suspense film-making I've ever seen.

Cameron's film is a lot of fun for what it is, a bonanza of brash action sequences and delicious camaraderie. It proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that while nobody can hear you scream in space, they can certainly hear you shoot.

An excellent science fiction, horror, action AND war film.

Much more high energy but just as sophisticated as the original...
