"Alien" is the first movie of one of the most popular sagas in science fiction history, and introduces Sigourney Weaver as Ripley, the iron-willed woman destined to battle the galaxy's ultimate creature. The terror begins when the crew of the spaceship Nostromo investigates a transmission from a desolate planet and makes a horrifying discovery, a life form that breeds within a human host. Now the crew must fight not only for its own survival, but for the survival of all mankind.

Cant help but be blown away with the stunning visuals and wish Ridley Scott would do more science fiction.
Yeah the story is a little slow but you are rewarded with an absolute stunning piece of movie making

 Poor - showing it's age

Watched this when released in the cinema, since then have bought & watched many times the 3 sequels. Bought this last week to complete the collection but wasted my money - the storyline is slow, the sound track barley audible & the film just doesn't cut it any more.
The 3 sequels are far, far better.

 ONE OF THE GREATEST MOVIES OF ALL TIME

It took me years to see this but when i did i was very impressed by what was on show and considering it was 1979. Ridley Scotts best movie......maybe and for me one of the greatest films of all time. Sigourney Weaver was awesome as Ripley and the rest of the cast delivered good performances too. It will have you on the edge of your seat and will lap up every minute. Enjoy

 All other priorities are rescinded...

The first, and greatest, of the Alien series. Essentially a mixture of science fiction and "the old dark house" style of horror movie. H.R. Giger's design for the titular beastie has never been surpassed and still manages to get under the skin and disturb the viewer. Ridley Scott is careful to stick to one of the cardinal rules of the great monster flick - don't show the creature too clearly. Terrific set design presents us with a believable vision of grubby, heavy-industry spacefaring which looks genuinely lived-in. The cast are possibly the best ensemble that Ridley's ever been blessed with - John Hurt, Sigourney Weaver, Ian Holm, Harry Dean Stanton, Tom Skerritt, Yaphet Kotto and Veronica Cartwright. Not to forget the preternaturally tall and thin Bolaji Badejo, who lurks in the dark places of the ship as the alien itself. And, if you've never seen it, prepare yourself for one of the most effective "shock" moments in cinema.

 The best "alien" by FAR

Not just a great Sci-Fi film, this is one of the great achievements in movie making. Made on a shoestring it showed the future as a real place not a silver-suited fantasy land, and boy did it scare the viewer !
A great "ride" of a movie that grabs you and doesent let go.
