Greatest. Sequel. Ever. (Don’t ever start with me Godfather
II fans.) Sigourney Weaver is Lieutenant Ellen L.
Ripley and Jenette Goldstein plays the lovely butchy Marine Pvt. Vasquez. They are space
Marines on a quasi civilian-meets-military operation (the parameters of
“company” is never clear) to a colony Ripley believes is inhabited by aliens.
Ripley — no slouch in the body department — must accompany a team of rugged
tough asses to the planet and survive. Thankfully, Vasquez is there to help.
