Review: Aliens is the sequel to one of the most well known horror franchises. Now although I loved the first one, I feel like Aliens is just a better movie overall. This film just keeps you on edge from the very beginning until the very end, unlike the first one where I did get bored at times. Aliens is a movie that you won’t want to miss.
The story for Aliens starts us off exactly where the original film left us. Ripley wakes up from a 60 year nap in that freezer bed thing and basically winds up having to go back out to the planet where she first encountered the creature. Although, this time she is going in with a rescue team to save the colonies that are living there. Honestly this story was just so much better than the original, I was into the movie the whole time. This may be because the setting for Aliens took place in more then just a spaceship this time. Aliens provides the viewer with some great twists and thrills to get us pumped and our hearts racing.How was the acting? The acting in Aliens was excellent, some may even say better than the first. Sigourney Weaver, Lance Henriksen, Michael Biehn, Bill Paxton, and young Carrie Henn all had amazing performances. The supporting cast all did great with their roles as well, this was just an all around great acting performance from the Aliens cast.
Aliens really delivered when it came to scares, kills, and just action overall. There were plenty of scenes that could make you jump and all the kills were great in this film. The major difference from the first one that I believe separated the two Alien movies was the fact that we actually see the alien a good amount of time in this movie and I loved that. This led to some great scenes between the humans and aliens, which the original movie didn’t have. Don’t angry the queen!Overall I absolutely loved the movie Aliens and thought it was highly entertaining. The story was intriguing and did an excellent job with keeping me into the movie. The acting in Aliens was highly enjoyable,it was an all around great acting performance from the cast and everyone did a great job with connecting with the viewers. Aliens also provides us with plenty of scare scenes and some great kills. What I loved most about the movie was the fact that we actually saw the alien more, which led to awesome scenes between humans and the creatures. It was cool seeing more then one alien as well, just really made things more fun for the viewer. If you haven’t watched Aliens yet, I absolutely recommend you go see it. You won’t regret it!
