Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team after being in hypersleep for 57 years. The moon that the Nostromo visited has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, colonial marines have impressive firepower, but will that be enough?
The word "fuck" is used 25 times in the film, 18 of them are spoken by Hudson.
Salvage Team Leader:
Bio-readouts are all in the green, looks like she's alive. Well, there goes our salvage, guys.
(at around 54 mins) The monitors for each of the marines' head-mounted cameras are identified by each marine's last name and first initial, located in lower right-hand corner of the monitor (e.g., Hicks D., Apone A., Hudson W., etc.). This is true for Vasquez' monitor (Vasquez J.), with one exception. While in the processing station and after Apone says, "Uh, roger. That's a two-one-six.", her monitor reads "Vasquez.".
As the final credits fade, there is the sound of a facehugger scurrying across from left to right.
During the Marines' initial search through the colony, a sequence has been inserted in which Hudson and Vasquez investigate some motion they have detected ahead of them. It turns out to be pet hamsters walking around in their cage.
