Aliens (film)

Aliens, the 1986 sequel to Alien, is a big-time adventure film, and I mean the 153-minute director’s cut from James Cameron.  It is less imaginative than the first film (by Ridley Scott), however, and completely inartistic.  But the same everything-at-stake suspense and brazen action are there.

So is Sigourney Weaver as Ripley, still behaving like an uncharming man except for being somewhat softened by a little Newt.  Excuse me, I mean a little girl called Newt (Carrie Henn)—not a bad addition by Cameron, writer as well as director of Aliens.
