I saw this film in the theatre back in the day and it was the first movie that I can honestly say my heart was pounding throughout its climax, it was so unrelentingly tense! Conversely, I watched Alien on video several times previous to this and was bored each and every time; it only started to get interesting during the last five minutes. (I've since come to the conclusion that Ridley Scott is overrated as a filmmaker. James Cameron is, too, but at least he has Aliens). Horror films--which Alien is--are boring; Aliens is sci-fi action and gripping throughout. Sigourney Weaver is brilliant in this, as is the entire cast. Truly an amazing film.

You can choose to watch the movie with or without the extra 17 minutes of deleted footage. I find the original theatrical release to be perfect as is and long enough. There's a 5-minute long scene of automated machine guns firing that is boring, noisy, and less than gripping to say the least. Also, some of the scenes of goings on at the colony before Ripley and Co. get there kind of spoil the mood of them heading into the unknown. Some deleted scenes are deleted for a reason and best left deleted.

Oh, and what's with the out-of-this-world price? I picked this DVD up in HMV for $5!

Aliens is NOT a rehash of Alien. They are completely different films. While Alien used suspence and shock factor to get the audience (I didn't drink milk for weeks after seeing it!), Aliens is an action-packed powerhouse. Heart-pounding, edge-of-your-seat cinema at it's finest. My hat is off to James Cameron for directing and re-writing the script.
Quick rundown of the plot of Aliens:
Flight Lt. Ripley (Sigorney Weaver) wakes up after an unusually long hyper-sleep to find out that the horror she left behind in "Alien" has taken on massive proportions.
You'll see a bunch of familar faces in Aliens:

Michael Biehn (Terminator, The Abyss) as Hicks
Paul Reiser (Mad About You, Diner) as Burke
Lance Henrikson (Millennium, The Quick and the Dead) as Bishop
Bill Paxton (Twister, Titanic) as Hudson
...and a few others that will make you do a double-take. -See if you can figure out what other movie "Private Vasquez" was in with Bill Paxton.
The visual effects are astounding. Thanks to DVD, details can be seen that were blurred in the VHS format. (I can finally read what is written on Ferro's helmet!) This film takes clear advantage of the DVD format and its THX re-mastering. I feel sorry for you if you don't have a large screen and full surround-sound at home for this one! Watching it in wide-screen format reveals all of the detail that has been missing for so long in the pan-and-scan format.
The Special Edition goodies include scenes that were cut from the theaters. The "new" footage (previously only available in LaserDisc format) blend seamlessly into the film. They all add value. I kept thinking "I don't remember that" and "HEY! NOW I get it!

I don't know what the Editorial reviewers above were thinking, but it just makes me want to smack my forehead in disbelief. The original cut of Aliens is MUCH better than the Director's Cut. This was back when Jim Cameron still knew how to make a great movie--long before the bloated and tiresome Titanic. The extra scenes in Aliens: Reloaded add absolutely nothing. We don't need to know EXACTLY how the colony got decimated by the aliens. We just know it has been. The NOT knowing is what is really scary. By adding in that scene at the beginning showing exactly how the alien ship is discovered by the colonists and how the "infection" begins--well, it just completely blows all suspense in the first third of the film. By not showing that, it puts the viewers on the edge of their seats--we KNOW something has gone horribly wrong, but we don't really know anything for certain. That's what tension is all about. That's how Cameron gives you that creeping dread for so long--that's why, when there's the first big (fake) scare on the planet, you practically jump out of your skin--because you've been so tense for so long! Don't shoot your wad by over-explaining. As for establishing how Ripley's daughter grew up and died while Ripley was a frozen popsicle for 60 years? Well, boo-hoo. Total bathos. Frankly, I thought it was much better that she bonded with Newt without any explanation, except the fact that how on earth could ANYONE not bond with and not care for that smart, brave kid? And she goes back for Newt because of their bond, and because it's the Right Thing To Do. Hello? Do we need the melodrama of Ripley's lost daughter for that to be emotionally genuine and satisfying? No, we don't. I was so glad not to have some kind of maudlin back story to explain people's relationships to me.Read more ›

57 years after the events on board the "Nostromo", lone survivor, Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) who is in cyro-sleep along with her cat Jonesy, is rescued. Her incredible story of her alien encounter is met with skepticism since the planet on which the alien was discovered, "LV-426" has been colonized for over 2 decades and the colonists have never come across any alien life-forms. When communication from the Colony is lost, Ripley is asked by Carter Burke (Paul Riser) if she can return to the "LV-426" alongside several Colonial Marines. Ripley is assured by Burke that their mission is to annihilate the aliens and she reluctantly agrees to join Burke's team. Once there, they discover a desolate planet in ruins and one survivor; a young girl named Rebecca "Newt" Jorder (Carrie Henn). Their struggle for survival is made even more difficult when Burke's egomaniacal plot is exposed and the hordes of vicious, blood-thirsty aliens come out to play.

Directed by James Cameron, "Aliens" is simply put, a thrill-ride. The first quarter of the film is spent on establishing the characters and Ripley's state of mind but once the action starts, there is no letting go. Unlike Scott's original film, this is not as dark. It is a bit more vibrant with a bunch of colorful supporting characters- the friendly android, the sleazy Burke, and a handful of Colonial marines who deliver the usual wise-cracks and some added humor but where the original had only two mean bad a$$ aliens (I am including the face-hugger here), "Aliens" throws a whole bucket's worth of these creatures at us (hence the title) and we are finally introduced to the Queen (she is a beauty).
