Aliens 
"This Time, Itís War!"
4/4 stars

"How could they cut the power, man? They're animals!"

Ellen Ripley (played magnificently by Sigourney Weaver) is rescued after spending 57 years in cryogenic hypersleep by a salvage freighter, and awakens only to learn that everything she knew is gone. She soon discovers that no one believes her terrifying ordeal at the hands of an acid spitting alien until LV-426 goes off the radar.

She is asked to assist a squad of fearless marines to investigate the loss of contact with colonists working at an Atmosphere Processor on the very planet where all the trouble started - LV426. Ripley is hesitant at first, but eventually agrees out of a need to resolve unfinished business and put a stop to the nightmares.

Packing enough fire power to level a mountain, the tough marines which includes the dashing Corporal Hicks(Michael Biehn),the charismatic Gun-Ho Private Hudson(Bill Paxton), the inexperienced commander, Gorman (William Hope) and the tough but loyal Private Vasquez(Jennifer Goldstein) go in but Ripley's fears are soon confirmed.

The colony has been obliterated by the aliens and this time they are stronger than before. The bastards are smart, has mastered organization, and there are a whole lot of them. The survivors are been used as incubators for their embryos. Only one little girl has survived the destruction, a shell shocked little girl called Newt whom Ripley takes under her wing. As the Marines too fall prey to the aliens, Ripley and a small band of survivors find themselves stranded on LV426 with little hope of escape. With their equipment damaged and the planet's damaged reactors about to blow the place sky high, it becomes a race against time as the aliens close in, and when Newt is kidnapped by an alien warrior, Ripley comes face to face with the source of the alien colony - a huge and fiercely protective Queen Alien in her egg chamber who is determined to take personal revenge on Ripley.

This film never lets up for one minute and includes a great "just when you thought it was over" ending that will have you on the edge of your seat. Lance Henriksen is also memorable as the android Bishop and Paul Reiser as company slime ball Carter Burke will make your skin crawl.

One of the best sequels/action films of all time. I likewise agree with the surprise ending, which was really effective. Great thorough review! Looking forward to more of your 4-star reviews.
