DIRECTOR: JAMES CAMERON

CAST: SIGOURNEY WEAVER, LANCE HENRIKSEN, BILL PAXTON, JENETTE GOLDSTEIN

Where its predecessor was a slow-burn suspenser, Cameron’s Aliens is a bombastic, no-holds-barred exosuit fight to the finish, an express elevator to hell, goin’ down! Lone survivor Ripley (Weaver) goes back for a rematch with the creatures who slaughtered her crew, this time bringing along a squad of hard-boiled space marines whose number includes the great Bill Paxton, Jenette Goldstein, and Lance Henriksen’s android Bishop. Rounding out the superb supporting players are the aliens themselves, pinnacles of pre-CGI visual effects that just keep coming, and coming, and coming, and coming…
