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...

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.
May 6, 2016
Much more high energy but just as sophisticated as the original...
October 27, 2014
A subtle, spooky movie with teeth becomes a subtlety-bashing war movie.

Scene to scene, encounter to encounter, its tension builds unrelentingly. So, fasten your seat belts. It`s a blast.
October 15, 2013
The first of these movies remains one of the great sci-fi horror achievements of the modern cinema, but its sequel, "Aliens," is that rare instance where a follow-up deviates from the formula and finds an effective rhythm in propelling the story

[Aliens] is a spectacular example of state-of-the-art science fiction simply because it never tries to be overtly spectacular.

It's blaster action, not Gothic future-horror. Fortunately, director-screenwriter James Cameron has shaped his film around the defiant intelligence and sensual athleticism of Weaver, and that's where Aliens works best.
