Aliens

Rating: 5 out of 5.

(spoiler-free movie review)


James Cameron took the suspense and horror of Alien and injected a healthy dose of Action to create an icon of 1980’s cinema. Aliens is a joy to watch and easily makes my top 10 list of favorite(and most watched) films of all time.

So, why does this movie work so well? The action sequences are fast paced and engaging. Sigourney Weaver gives a phenomenal(Oscar nominated) performance. The sets, model work and creature effects are all world-class. Most importantly, the characters are interesting and they interact with each-other in a way that feels natural.

The result is one of the best Science Fiction/Action films ever to grace the big screen and a perfect example of how to make a sequel.

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars
