One of the finest
Seen it many times, but it beats everything else on a Saturday Night.

Simply Masterful
Anyone not giving this film a 10 had better watch out for slime dripping onto their shoulder........

A Rip(ley)ing good yarn
The Noot bit is a bit cloying (child in distress - what a heart string puller NOT)...but the rest is good. Women (Ripley and Apone not subservient to men...good one)

Epic sequel
few sequels to great film are any good but this is probably one of the top three sequels of all time only The Empire Strikes Back and The Godfather(part 2)can compare,it takes the characters and themes from a fantastic Gothic SF film and uses them to tell an all action gung ho SF war film(well kind of) but it has a bit more going for it than that...the original theatrical cut is very very good and the extended version is even better(imo)

Repeat, repeat, repeat
The amount of time this has been shown on TV I think I know the dialogue better than the actors! We're not all cursed with the memory of a goldfish!

Not the best but...
This isn't even the best sci-fi film ever let alone the best film ever. But nevertheless still a rolicking action horror, and one of those films that makes you keep watching even though you've seen it several times before.

all over the place

This is, quite simply, the GREATEST film ever created. Brilliant direction, acting and storyline compiles into an incredible heart pounding adventure. Enjoy this *also the better extended version movie whilst you can.

the best
only the best sci-fi offering ever made.
get real 9:00am Sun 20 Feb
Made 25 years ago and still better than 99% of the latest sci fi c**p pouring into the cinemas. The director's cut is 11/10.

Just Awesome
I echo a lot of the sentiments on here .... this film isnt just one of the best sci fi's of all time its one of the best films all time full stop,just pure class all the way through , definatly betters the first for me which is also class. Ill watch this for the 447th time again tonight ;)

They come at night, mostly
The first 2 alien films certainly put a lot of modern offerings to shame. This one uses the motion detetcor to great effect and am guessing by the 2hr 50 min running time it isn't the cut version so the story will be explained a lot better. Because of the colonial marines i think this one appeals more to the boys than the girls, so I'd put it on par with the first. Still a must see P.S. I think the quote is correct:)

Versions II
I prefer the first out of the two, the first just has more originality, of course Dark Star was inspiration but Aliens is essentially Vietnam in space. I'd say that Alien has a lot more in common with an art-house movie. I'll end by saying both have their merits. The third I have to say its lucky it's coherent at all, given half way through the director and project was sacked and redesigned. Look at Finchers work after this.

completly disagree, I think the original version is much better - the extra scenes have never improved this classic sc-fi for me

Personal favourite
This is probably my favourite film of all time. I would watch it, but I'd drive my wife mad as I know I'd say all the lines just before the actors do... and she's kill me...
Leroy 7:52pm Wed 17 Feb
This film never gots old
No matter how many times I've seen it, still made of win!
Get away from her... you... 2:03am Sun 13 Dec
Oh yes
IF this the full uncut version with the sentry gun etc then it's a great film. Cut version just good.

Best One Of The Alien Quadrilogy
Simply the best Alien film. I Have The Alien Quadrilogy Boxset DVD and this on is by far the best. It's not just the best Alien Film ever made it's simply the best SCI-FI Alien Film Ever I give Aliens A Briliant 10/10. Love It. BY zed
zed 1:42am Tue 30 Dec
This is simply, the great Sci-Fi movie ever made. Yes, Alien was superb, and Ridly nailed it. But, for once, the sequel surpasses the original and James Cameron has not only nailed this one, hes pretty much nailed straight through it. Its a sublime film, from beginning to end. Packed with tension, horr, action, humour and even a bit of romance. It, put simply, is in a league of its own. 100/100. THE best.
