Audience Reviews for Aliens (Special Edition)

This version has 17 extra minutes of pointless footage. The 1986 Aliens was fantastic, and I don't want to see a version that offers more depth into the character's pasts. That just shouldn't be in an Alien movie.

This new cut develops the hero Ripley into a more developed character, learning about her daughter's fate after 57 years in cryogenic sleep and the mother/daughter relationship between her an Newt. It's a welcome addition to a great story.

this is by far the version to watch. everything that happened in the theatrical seemed to be just talked about & in this extended cut you see all the action.
