The Warriors (1979)
At 56:30 in the movie the apocalyptic tribe are chasing the soldiers in a graffiti'd up bus which is torn straight from Walter Hill's "The Warriors (1979) where the heroes are chased by the "Turnbull A.C.'s" who are in a similar bus and hang off of it waving weapons. It mirrors it so closely that the pursuees leap over subway turnstiles in their escape. Great call-back.

Docter Kane says almost the exact same sentence as ripley says at the end of the movie, only he says '' Doctor Kane signing off'' and ripley say ''Lt. Ripley signing off.''

Many references, including the maps of Scotland using the same animation style and colours as those of New York, the scene where weapons and mission are presented to Eden Sinclair, and the musical themes.
