57 years after Ellen Ripley had a close encounter with the reptilian alien creature from the first movie, she is called back, this time, to help a group of highly trained colonial marines fight off against the sinister extraterrestrials. But this time, the aliens have taken over a space colony on the moon LV-426.

By the late 1980s, the process of 24 frames per second video had been widely adopted, in part as a technical advance on the techniques used in "Aliens", amongst other productions, including 24fps filming of the UK's 25/50 fps PAL tv and video monitors - removing generally unavoidable screen flicker from the video refreshing rate clashes causing odd screen images when shot using different film speed frame rates. Ultimately this led to many productions being shot on video and given a fake 24fps film appearance, and ultimately led to motion pictures being shot in HD and Ultra HD, in effect as 24fps video.

The Blu-ray edition of Aliens (available as part of the Alien Anthology boxset) fixes two errors that appear near the movie's ending. Firstly, the famous goof towards the movie's ending where Ripley picks out weapons on the dropship and then sets them down in the wrong order, has been fixed. She no longer picks out a pulse rifle and sets down a flamethrower before picking out a flamethrower and setting down a pulse rifle; she now picks out and puts down a pulse rifle and then a flamethrower in order. Secondly, when Bishop grabs Newt to stop her sliding out of the airlock during the confrontation with the alien queen, the section of actor Lance Henriksen's torso that could previously be seen poking up through a hole cut in the floor has been digitally removed.

The best action sci-fi horror war movie my number 1 personal favorite film of all time hands down
Aliens (1986) is a masterpiece one of the best action sci-fi horror war films of all time hands down. I love this movie to death it is my personal number 1 best action sci-fi-horror movie that I love to death. In my opinion this is James Cameron best film ever don't get me wrong I love The Terminator, I love Terminator 2: Judgment Day to death, they are both my personal favorite James Cameron films because Cameron is a legend I appreciate him. The same time my personal favorite films of all time will always be Aliens and Rambo: First Blood Part II because James Cameron wrote the script for it. It is a bad-ass film and I wrote a war because this time is war in the planet LV-426 Platoon of US Space Marines fights against Aliens.
I know a lot of people compere this film to an action and sci-fi genre but doesn't compare to horror genre. There's plenty of horror in it: the opening scene the dreams sequence in which Ripley has a nightmare and we see Ripley been cocooned from one of those Alien creatures in her stomach that was scary sequence in which her cat Jones start hissing and creeps me out every time I see it. The creepy atmosphere of the LV-426 colony, and the heart pounding face hugger on the loose scene in the medical bay that is horror sequence.
I love James Horner's music score for the movie which is his best soundtrack ever, who is no longer with us anymore. R.I.P. you are missed.
I love all the characters: Ripley, Newt than the marines: Corporal Dwayne Hicks, Bishop, Private Hudson, Lieutenant Gorman, Private Vasquez, Sergeant Apone, Private Drake, Private Frost, Corporal Ferro, Private Spunkmeyer, Corporal Dietrich, Private Crowe, and Private Wierzbowski I love them all in this movie and they are memorable.
Sigourney Weaver returns as Ellen Ripley, who travels with a platoon of US Colonial Marines to investigate a loss of contact with the colony established on the same planet discovered by the crew of the Nostromo in the original film
I love the action, Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) finds the Alien nest, saves Newt (Carrie Henn) destroys all the eggs of the Alien. Battles with the Alien Queen one-on-one she gains a new daughter, when her real daughter was dead. Ripley comes back to colony LV-426 to face her fear once and for all so that she want have any nightmares and she and Newt will be safe. We have Bishop here a synesthetic android, he saves Ripley and Newt. Lance Henriksen is excellent as Bishop I love him in Hard Target (1993) and I love him in here to death.
I love Michael Biehn as Corporal Dwayne Hicks this is my favorite role of the actor he played. I love Private Hudson (Bill Paxton) he was the best, rest in peace I really miss you. Ellen Ripley is a bad-ass warrior Sigourney Weaver was the best in this movie. Carrie Henn as Newt was the heart in this film.
I love this film to death, I am cherishing with all my heart. I have this movie on Blu-ray disc and I am constantly watching it. I used to had the DVD version but I trade it for Blu-ray because of the better picture quality, better special features and the DVD cut scenes from the film away even the special edition did that. DVD did not had any special features at all. 10/10 my personal action, sci-fi, horror masterpiece war movie of all time I love "Aliens" to death!
