  • The 4K release of "Aliens" delivers a stunning Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos experience, but the overly processed image quality divides fans, despite the rich extras.

  • Video: 92

  • The 4K UHD Blu-ray of *Aliens* showcases an intricately detailed restoration using HEVC/H.265 encoding with Dolby Vision HDR. Significant fine detail, especially in close-ups, contrasts with a somewhat processed look in broader scenes, lacking traditional grain and sometimes resulting in a slightly artificial appearance. Enhanced color grading offers vivid tones, deep blacks, and radiant highlights, while minor artifacts and the minimal grain texture remain points of contention among purists.

  • Audio: 95

  • "The Dolby Atmos upgrade on the 4K UHD Blu-ray of Aliens delivers an immersive and spatially engrossing experience with exceptional channel separation, robust low-end, and clear dialogue. Height channels and LFE enhance scenes like the dropship crash and xenomorph attacks, making this a must-have audio presentation."

  • Extra: 99

  • The "Aliens" 4K UHD Blu-ray edition impresses with both Theatrical and Special Edition cuts, extensive audio commentaries by James Cameron, Dolby Digital 5.1 isolated scores, and a treasure trove of legacy extras, including the exhaustive "Making Aliens" documentary and new design featurettes, all presented across three discs.

  • Movie: 95

  • James Cameron's 'Aliens' (4K UHD) masterfully expands on its predecessor with a perfect balance of frenetic action and emotional depth. The transfer to 4K preserves the film’s stunning practical effects and iconic performances. Both Theatrical and Special Editions are enhanced with Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos audio, delivering an immersive experience.
