Aliens (1986)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

8 / 10
What James Cameron has done with Aliens is the same thing he did with Terminator 2. He takes a good original movie and knocks it out of the ballpark with the sequel. The pace has quickened over the original, includes a lot more action while maintaining plenty of engaging and suspenseful scenes.

This sequel is sure to make fans of the original movie happy and may even convert anyone out there that didn't love the first entry.
Aliens (1986)
Review by Alex Martel

9 / 10
How do you top a sci-fi horror masterpiece by a director in his artistic prime? Short answer, you don't.

James Cameron wisely decided to play up to his strengths and do a completely different kind of movie with Aliens. He was never going to surpass or even replicate the horror, tension and claustrophobia from the first movie. It's like with Jaws, once you've seen the shark, it's not so scary anymore. Instead, Cameron gives us a very well built, kick ass action movie that's chock full of thrills and stands alongside Alien as one of the best movies of the 80s.
