THE PLOT:

Years after the encounter with the strange alien life form nearly wiped out all but one member of a salvage crew. The lone survivor is found, Ripley and the cat are awaken to face a inquiry of the events leading to the destruction of the ship.

She also learned that they have terraformed and placed a colony of humans while she was sleeping, a colony they have since lost contact with (big surprise). Together with a Platoon of Space Marines Ripley is going to put a full metal jacket up some alien's meatball hill before it's Apocalypse now for the colony.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

The second movie has a lot more punch and excitement then the first. While the first was creepy space atmosphere waiting for something to jump out and eat you, this was all out ass kicking fun. Not the first movie wasn't good, I love all the alien movies, some more then others and for various reasons. But if I had to pick a favorite and say this is the best of the series, I would have to say this movie. James Cameron starts in full speed and don't stop until a great explosive climax that is worthy of me. The story is great, now for the bad news. Some of the human characters did get a little annoying at times, just a little, mind you. But that's a small thing. 9 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd on this. That's why I bought the entire Alien collection is a somewhat expensive box set. Now, if you didn't like the first movie or are freaked out by strange alien creatures. Then this isn't the movie for you 9 STARS as well.
