When a colony on the remote alien world from the first movie falls off the radar and looses contact with everybody, Weyland Industries assembles a team to find out what happened to the colonists. Unfortunately, Ripley has no choice but to accompany them and fight off the alien she thought she destroyed. However, this time around there are more of them and Ripley is beginning to loose faith in the cocky crew. This is one of the few sequels that could be better than the original; it uses a great sense of mood and action to build tension and it’s a treat to see Ripley even more as a motherly figure but also as an action hero. The special effects are outstanding and really show what the 80’s accomplished in film.
