Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw
Ellen Ripley and her interstellar crew are trapped on their ship with a violent alien creature that has infiltrated the ship.
This is a classic. On the surface, its a Sci Fi film, but personally, I think of it as more of a horror film. The crew is trapped on this ship with clever, powerful, and quite honestly, frightening monster that picks them all off one by one. Ripley is one of the most bad ass character ever created, male or female, and the Alien is somewhat of a movie icon. I love this movie. Its scary, and great fun.
Following her survival of the initial Alien attack, Ripley is called back into action to assist a group of marines as they go to the Alien homeworld to save a colony the threat of these monsters.
This is a case where the sequel topped the original. Where the first film is more of a horror flick, this one is more action based with all sorts of weapons & gadgets being used to stop an entire hive of Aliens. Its a really cool film, and Ripley is once again one tough bad ass chick. My only real knock on it is that it does take a while for the story to get going, but once it does, its non stop excitement and thrills. I love it. Great film.
