Lucas Jackson is a man who refuses to be nailed down, conform to rules and regulations, or fit into society, and now, he's on a chain gang. He's a likable enough guy, always smiling, always ready for a little fun. He eats 50 hard-boiled eggs on a bet and collects all the money in the camp. He's more or less like the people he hangs around with, except he won't be pushed. He knows his own mind. This makes him the only prisoner with guts enough to talk back to the bosses and the only one with nerve enough to escape. That Luke, he's a cool hand

Earth, early 21st century. Charles Weyland, an industrialist billionaire, leads an archaeological expedition to Antarctica. Using thermal imaging satellites, Weyland believes he has discovered the ruins of an ancient pyramid temple buried under the ice that predates the Egyptian and Aztec pyramids. Once inside, the team finds the remains of humans with holes in the rib cage and the remains of facehuggers. The possibility that the temple is uninhabited is very unlikely. To make matters worse, a group of teenage Predators are coming to the temple to perform a coming-of-age ritual that involves fighting to the death with the Aliens. Soon, it becomes clear that only one species is getting out alive

"Deux grands amis sont devenus des ennemis jurés. L'un est surnommé Billy le Kid (Kris Kristofferson) et vit au-dessus des lois. L'autre, le shérif Pat Garrett (James Coburn), représente la loi et chevauchait autrefois aux côtés de Billy. Sur une musique vibrante de Bob Dylan (qui incarne Alias, le comparse de Billy) et regorgeant de figures mythiques du western, la saga de Sam Peckinpah sur l'une des grandes légendes de l'Ouest a été restaurée à sa juste gloire. Pour la première fois depuis sa sortie de la salle de montage, le film contient l'équilibre entre l'action et le développement des personnages tel que désiré par Peckinpah conjuguant fureur et poésie en suivant les notes du réalisateur et les observations de ses collègues. La différence est frappante et la nouvelle version, des plus percutantes". --Verso du conteneur
