Despite the mess that was Alien 3, they greenlit this marginally better sequel.

It's now years in the future (again), and Ripley is reconstituted from a DNA sample, with superhuman reflexes and powers as she's been spliced with an alien.

In the meantime, The Company has been breeding aliens for research, and they (of course) escape, running amok in the ship, hunting down the group of soldiers and cutthroats in command.

Apart from a very memorable sequence where an alien orchestrates an escape by encouraging it's cellmate to turn on a third (thereby spilling it's acidic blood and melting the floor out), it's another Alien movie of chasings, killings and action.

The alien/human creature is disturbingly human and seeing the look on it's face as it gets sucked out the hole in the window into space is enough to make you want therapy.
