Huge Motto. Hicks' reaction is key. Hey remember when the shuttle dropped from the ship and that combat drop made him fall asleep? That's ice. "Express elevator to Hell! Going down!"
Hicks' reaction is perfect and I remember seeing that ceiling scene for the first time when I was 7 or 8, gave me the shivers!
This movie has perfect supporting characters. I can barely think of any another movie with such a perfect supporting cast. Hicks, Hudson, Apone, Gorman, Burke, Vasquez. God, Now I need to watch today after work!
I think this movie is still example of Sci-Fi/horror/action perfection.
