Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 09/01/1979
"...ALIEN outshines all competition in the luminous splendour of its photography..."
Variety - 05/23/1979
"...An old-fashioned scary movie set in a highly realistic sci-fi future, made all the more believable by the expert technical craftsmanship....[Weaver] carries it off well..."
Movieline's Hollywood Life - 11/01/2003
"...Ridley Scott was a force to be reckoned with..."
Total Film - 11/01/2003
"...With its cliché-confounding cast and plotting, roughneck sensibility and star-making turn from Weaver, ALIEN rewards repeat viewing..."
Los Angeles Times - 10/29/2003
"...Scott's film still shreds nerves....At once graphically elegant and viscerally effective, the future conjured up by Scott was dystopian to the core..."
Entertainment Weekly - 11/07/2003
"...In ALIEN, you can hear lessons for the sci-fi future in a great milestone from the recent past..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/26/2003
"Ridley Scott's 1979 movie is a great original."
Premiere - 04/01/2004
"Weaver's Ripley revolutionized women's roles by introducing the female action hero..."
