Dir. James Cameron (1986).
The sequel to “Alien” is a high-tech non-stop war movie, with marines battling creatures and action heroine hard-boiled Sigourney Weaver rescued in deep space and brought to a space station where she finds that she has been in suspended animation for 60 years—then the fun begins. It’s intense, suspenseful, filled with gritty dialogue, and doesn’t disappoint.
