ABSTRACT
The article presents an analysis of the 1986 film "Aliens," directed by James Cameron. It explores how the characters portray the themes of the "Other," or binaries such as good/evil and human/alien, and implicit racism which are also evident in the film's sequels. Moreover, it stresses that the Alien film series shows that binarism is an inadequate way of representing complex social, psychological and cultural issues.
