The most, exhilarating, entertaining and flawless action movie I've ever seen. In my top 20 for sure.

Good stuff in this one. Bill Paxton's character was so freaking annoying though. Really over the top for no reason.

Aliens is just the first one again but on a bigger scale and done as an action movie instead of a horror film. It's fine but the first is so much more intriguing!

I’d probably give Alien 4 a D as well now, I don’t like it at all anymore.

Proved that James Cameron has a mind for directing action movies considerably more nuanced and plot-driven than just "find ways to blow things up" like a certain director.
