MOVIE: Aliens

SBS VICE­LAND, 8.30pm, M (1986)

The Morning Bulletin - - LIFE TV GUIDE -

A se­quel to Ri­d­ley Scott’s 1979 sci-fi master­piece, writ­ten and di­rected byy James Cameron, with Sigour­neyWeaver rep pris­ing her hard-as-cof­fin-nails space troope er char­ac­ter. Af­ter 57 years, Ri­p­ley (We aver) awakes from her hi­ber­na­tion to lead a band of der­ring-do­ers and dead-beats on a mis­sionm that will reac­quaint her with the goo- drool­ing aliens. The set-up takes a whilew to kick into gear and the di­a­logue is pre etty down­mar­ket (unin­spired pearls fromm Cameron in­clude “Get away from he r, you bitch!”) but that’s OK be­cause the fi nal hour is one of the most re­lent­less, he eart­stop­ping, horrifying fi­nales you’ll eve er see.
