Trivia

  • The body mounts for Vasquez's and Drake's smart guns were taken from Steadicam gear. According to Mark Rolston and Jenette Goldstein, the smart guns were between 70 and 90 pounds, and were so heavy that the Velcro straps on their gear wouldn't stay fastened. The crew had to duct-tape the gear onto them each day.

Metacritic

100

Though Aliens is unable to eschew some obvious sci-fi conventions and those of other genres as well, it brings a fresh and lively spirit to this tired cinematic clime. Scene to scene, encounter to encounter, its tension builds unrelentingly. So, fasten your seat belts. It`s a blast.

Tautly paced and expertly directed, this roller coaster ride of a motion picture offers a little bit of everything, all wrapped up in a tidy science fiction/action package.
