Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), who tried to stop the menace before it all happened, uncovers a traitor as she struggles for survival.
Heart-pounding horror film is nothing of a storyteller but sure manages to captivate the viewer’s attention through the horror communicated via its visual effects, and Ridley Scott’s direction. Soon after the first victim falls, a claustrophobic feeling fills the screen as there is no way out, and this is not a monster who gets tired easily.
How a simple premise works so well in a futuristic environment is worth of admiration. It’s great to see how sometimes the simpler it is, the better it gets. This is definitely a good addition to sci-fi cinema.
