I feel the leaves are the key in the book.SpoilerLike they have to be physically processed into a usable protection and poison that doesn't even work instantly so that adds a lot to the tension. I imagine on film seeing this army of people covered in a faint white maybe dried layer of the goop that will only protect they from a splash or two of acid blood and even then it will leave small burns, would be a wonderful and fresh thing in an Aliens film. Because even with it the Aliens still slaughter, it just gives the humans an edge. [close]
