Movie Summary

Director:
James Cameron
Released:
1986
Rating:
R

The movie follows Ellen Ripley, the sole survivor of the massacre on the space freighter Nostromo, after she has been rescued from her hyper sleep fifty-seven years after the incident. Though her story and the proof of Nostromo's destruction shows that something did go on with the acidic bleeding and murderous aliens as the predators, her bosses, the Weyland-Yutani Corp, Ripley is stripped of her license and sent on her way. However, when the terraformed colony original housing the alien eggs goes off-line, she joins the crew of Colonial Marines in order to face her fears and prove her story. The heavily-armed troop, including Corporal Hicks, Lieutenant Gorman, Sergeant Al Apone, Private Hudson, and the android Bishop, find the colony barren with the colonists in the aliens nest with only the little girl Newt running free. As the Marines are slowly picked off one-by-one, Ripley discovers just why corporate lawyer Carter Burke stops them from taking the aliens out for good.

    I'm giving the movie a high rating for its skill and professionalism and because it does the job it says it will do. I am also advising you not to eat before you go to see it.
