A rival of professional assassin Chev Chelios (Jason Statham) injects him with a poison that will kill him if his heart rate drops below a certain level, meaning any moment not filled with adrenaline is risking death. What follows is an hour and a half of increasingly ridiculous situations, as Chelios turns into a literal adrenaline junkie whilst desperately searching for both a cure and the person who did this to him. At one point he even has to resort to using a defibrillator on himself to kick-start his heart – ouch.
Building on the horror based story of its predecessor, Aliens went down more of an action route, as a team of futuristic marines travel to planet LV-426 to investigate the reported extra terrestrial life-form that was found there. Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) proves that women can kick ass just as much as men, as she simultaneously fights off aliens and defends Newt, the young girl the team have rescued. The climatic showdown is laced with tension and terror, when a battered and bruised Ripley faces the gigantic Alien Queen in a battle to the death.
