As many fans of science fiction, just join them and say that the second part, "Alien" came out the best of the entire franchise consisting of four films about alien monsters that are attacking, killing, and trying to release any of his lair.

It's been 30 years, and the film looks great even now. To still not ceases to amaze the American cinema. Wanted in the 80s to continue to create a sequel made. And made a masterpiece on the delight of all. What is striking is how already in the 80s, the Americans were able to create fabulous computer graphics in the background of the cosmos. With precision, to work up to the smallest detail, every detail of the spacecraft, and so perfect to do sketches of alien monsters. For that's all the creators want simply to praise.

Acting, in this film, too, is a distinctive feature. Almost all are commendable. As always, want to distinguish Sigourney weaver, which again fulfilled the image of the captain of the Ellen Ripley. And this time, she looked like the real captain, liaising with all the characters, competently and intelligently, trying to save not only themselves, but of others who find themselves in trouble. Good actor, brave characters Hicks Vasquez girl a great Android Bishop in the performance lance Henriksen.

Distinctive features of the film. Troublemakers — Strangers. In this film, they are so much that just not counted every monster. The monsters are vividly elaborated in movements. Impresses with its views, alien Queen, the brightest, the monster from which just so do not shake. It is an interesting idea, in adding firearms guns-robots, to shoot strangers.

"Alien" — excellent a fantastic sequel that retained the features of the original film, and improved not only visual effects, but and have successfully implemented elements of Thriller. Atmospheric, creepy, entertaining sequel — one of the best work of James Cameron, who successfully continued the franchise of crazy alien monsters.

Cameron successfully picked up the baton by Ridley Scott, and removed the second account film about xenomorph. But to compare movie movie Scott is impossible, because they turned out well very different. In"Alien" the main thing was the atmosphere, "Strangers" — action. In the first part one individual barely then did it, then right and left crumbled on a salad a few dozen, and then hundreds of alien.

About the plot in a nutshell — capsule Ellen Ripley was found in space in 57 years skirmishes with Strangers. For this time the LV-426 colony founded by people who find the crashed Space ship Jockeys with eggs Board. Naturally curious, the colonists immediately examine unknown organisms. The idea is not best, what the outcome of the study, and so it is understandable. On the planet landed elite Marines can do, instructed most Ripley. And find the planet something, what was obviously not finished...

The feature picture is just action. On the screen a lot, a lot of shooting, car chases, even the "fist" battle with the Queen Alien features. For that's completely missing the atmosphere of terror and despair that characterized the first film. But fortunately, this is no completely replaced by the dynamics of the film.

The movie was decent, and visual effects (considering the year the picture is released) performed quite well. Of course, small flaws and illogical Dating. For example, I was disappointed with "elite paratroopers". I thought if you go to an unknown enemy, the armor should close all your body and hands. Yeah and psychological preparation is poor — sometimes it seems that not elite special forces, a group of "soldier of fortune". But it is my nitpicking on the quality and the pleasure they are not affect.

Overall, a good film, and as another story from the Universe of Others will go. Yeah and two "Oscar" already talking about the quality of the picture.

How many would any written accolades, and the enthusiastic praises of James Cameron, all still this is not enough. It work is invaluable and the limit of respect for the person the part of the fans cannot even conceive. How many grew up (if not educated) on his films once and again reviewing the Terminator, Titanic or the Abyss, again and again alcha of these life-giving sources of the divine mixture of the unique action scenes, well-developed characters and a timeless, complex stories with lots of subtext. How to distinguish a genius Director from the icons of cinema? From the last generally there is NOT iconic.

Her third feature film, D. K. proved that he deserves all done to him honors can shoot movies, an original story which is not just Naveen by Morpheus, but and those whose history of concrete stuck in the minds million fans in as kultovaya.

Who but Cameron could take the risk of making a sequel, I think, perfect sci-Fi horror movie in which every scene can be safely represented as sample the film Academy? Seemed aspect of suspense and the unknown, the hidden horror thanks to the brilliant first part, completely exhausted. Nobody is afraid of "something in the dark" if you have had thoroughly studied the structure, psychology and the habits of others to the last alien cells. Thought it was obvious that now we need to focus on furious action.

And Cameron of course so did, BUT forgot about "stealth", which is still out (in my opinion) very good. For the entire first half of the tape is not appear one monster and the voltage is that though the ax hang! Director like flirting with the audience, pumping, rascala the absolute madness, deliberately exaggerating and surpassing the wildest expectations of the fans.

First, the film selects the best, than famous "Alien" — 1. The atmosphere of the unknown region, from which comes the rescue team. 2. Most of the action takes place in a confined space. 3. Fight S. weaver with a monster tete-a-tete. Second, in the action is added furious dynamics and increasing quantitatively — 1. You receive all kinds of weapons (turrets and robots are especially remembered). 2. Themselves alien breed 3 packs. Significantly increased the number of characters and types of interaction. 4. Monsters also now playing team. 5. "Queen Alien" has a much more developed physical and mental talents, compared with predecessor.

That is the final fight against her assigned a place of honor to be the most spectacular and a collective episode. The original idea of confrontation fragile, delicate creatures women and highly organized, intelligent, and the most bloodthirsty creatures in the universe acquires in "Strangers" with new details. Now Ripley wakes up not only the instinct of self-preservation, but and maternal, because it must protect from alien freaks defenseless girl. But and the enemy she matched, because it is actually the mother. I.e. in some degree of reproductive and life-giving beginning, which is not like his offspring shoot and blow up packs (all know what the theme of motherly feelings for the Others were shamefully continue in the fourth part?). In my opinion, obvious overt sympathy for Cameron to feminine worship him as the strongest and overcome a purely masculine lethal technology (see the Terminator) and sudden disaster (the Titanic) and bloodlust alien destructive instincts (look at the American poster Others — I made in the form of the classic female symbol (), referring to the form of the most important reproductive organ).

In conclusion, I note again the role of Cameron for movie. Not secret after "Jaws" do all the film turned in the direction of spectacular, big-budget blockbusters, and the so-called author's movie (which flourished up to this, see the book by P. Biskind "Easy riders, raging bulls") has fallen into a prolonged recession (up to that today any ideological film brand of art-house). But such Directors as Cameron prove his creativity and movies can be original, original, "savory", not losing its versatile and spectacular entertainment. So they movies are living longer than men. And almost as long as  the"other".
