Aliens is directed by James Cameron and stars Sigourney Weaver, Micheal Biehn, Paul Reiser, Bill Paxton, and Carrie Henn. The plot of the movie is fifty-seven years after Ellen Ripley survived her disastrous ordeal, her escape vessel is recovered after drifting across the galaxy as she slept in cryogenic stasis. Back on Earth, nobody believed her story about the "Aliens" on the moon LV-426. After the "Company" orders the colony on LV-426 to investigate however all communication with the colony is lost. The company enlists Ripley to aid a team of tough rugged space marines on a rescue mission to the now partially terraformed moon to find out if there are aliens or survivors. As the mission unfolds, Ripley will be forced to come to grips with her worst nightmare, but even as she does, she finds that the worst is yet to come.    James Cameron did something with this movie really well and that was not recreating Ridley Scott's Alien he made his own movie. Ridley Scott's movie was a masterclass in science fiction suspense. James Cameron's movie is a masterclass in science fiction action. This movie is fucking awesome it's one of the best action movies ever made and a lot of it doesn't even have to do with the aliens this movie has a great focus on character in particular Ripley. Sigourney Weaver got nominated for Best Actress something that is rare for a blockbuster film. Her character is developed a lot more. I did like the relationship she formed with Newt a young girl that they find hiding out on this planet. The whole finale of this film is so intense with The Queen. This whole movie is some of the best action suspense filmmaking I have ever seen and it still holds up today.  5 out of 5 stars for Aliens. I hope you enjoyed my review.
