Get away from her, you bitch!

Review: How the hell do you follow up such a magnificent movie like Alien? Well, apparently you hire James Cameron, add some Rambo-soldiers, give Sigourney Weaver a weird perm, add a shitload of Alien creatures and make a full-blown action movie. Now that’s how you make a sequel Police Academy!!

Nerdiest Movie Trivia: The fifteen minute countdown at the end of the film is indeed fifteen minutes.
