(OK then..I split off the discussion of a 5th film into a separate thread, so this one can get back to "Aliens")
PLOT OUTLINE (from the IMDb - http://us.imdb.com/Title?0090605 )
57 years after her ordeal with the extraterrestrial creature, Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team during her hypersleep. When she discovers that transmissions from a colony that has since settled on the alien planet suddenly stop, Ripley is offered a chance to team up with a group of marines to descend on the planet and investigate the alien presence. Determined to end the memories of the alien creature, Ripley agrees to the offer and is once again thrown back into her living nightmare.
I think with this film they decided to go all out for action-horror-sci-fi, less on the tension that was created in the first film.
I liked the way that Ripley was brought back into the story, it was believable as she would have needed a pretty damn good reason to go back to that place...
