It is grossly unfair to compare this Hollywoodized sequel from James Cameron to the original vision as presented by Ridley Scott seven years earlier. Yes, Sigourney Weaver is back with her cat but all of the atmosphere present before has been replaced with good old American "can-do" blow the shit out of everything bravado. Yes, it is a good film and of course we have a whole boat load of new xenomorphs to shoot at but again. it is nothing compared to the first. Bill Paxton proveds excellent comic relief and Lance Henriksen makes a mighty fine "android" but I gather the highlight of the film, other than the amazing special effects, is when Paul Reiser gets it which I gather many of us would like to see in real life!
