The movie seems to be a very long pause and a poorly paced ending. On the other end, Alien movie builds slowly and add elements till the very end. The opening of the ghost shift in the movie seems to be spooky and the scenes in which the crew members are shown for the very first time are awakening and everything seems to be introduced at a nice pace. Introduction of the ship and the walk through the corridors seems to be immensely beautiful (Gallagher & Mark, 2012). In the movie Aliens the less emphasis has been led on the Aliens and more on the Queen. The character of Ripley in the movie Aliens is mostly similar except that he has gone bigger and he is in a shuttle craft and is wearing a power suit. Another similarity is that the ending of both the movies is similar. The only difference between the endings is that the Aliens movie has been pumped up with the coke and steroids. Towards the climax the robot has been shown to become a good guy.
Thus, the movie Aliens seems to be dragged for a lengthy wait for the attack and the final battle with the queen. Another similarity between the two movies is the use of Xenomorph. Though, it has been depicted in different ways in two movies. While Xenomorph, is a terrifying creature which is built on the shadows and in Aliens it is just the normal insect in the movie ‘Aliens’. The Xenomorph in the Aliens die while in Alien it keeps ticking along the space and floats along with the eternity which looks much more appealing and pleasing.
