@Soledad I'm confused I thought the Pred's were smarter than the Aliens so how would the Aliens win?
@gowzer Visually, Prometheus was stunning. Storyline, uf... I remember being angry at Ridley, literally yelling at the screen. Weak. But ok, let's see what next, as long as it's better than Requiem, I reckon it'll be fine. =)
@MsMarvel it adds more depth to the story, I cant wait to see how the alien story evolves now well more so how it began as the I thought Prometheus was amazing. requim was a bit of a disaster tho yeah I agree
Not bad for the illegitimate baby of Alien franchise. Not the strongest story, but the main character makes up for it. Unlike Requiem debauchery which I should have just slept through...

Not the best movie ever, but its ok to sit through if you love the Aliens and Predators like I do. Some good stuff,mosty horribly, but overall Ill call it an ok movie. (I do love horrible movies)

It makes me wonder why Antartica (the setting of this movie) is uninhabitable if nothing really reflects how cold it is. If you're going to have a movie there, it better show that it's cold! You don't even see their breath when they breathe! WHAT THE HELL?!?!?!?

Now, I haven't seen a single Alien or Predator movie. Again, WHAT THE HELL?!?!?!? It took me until halfway through the movie when the alien jumped out of a guy to figure out which one was which. And I only knew it was the alien because I was lucky enough to see a spoof of it on Spaceballs and having someone tell me that was an Alien-spoof.

Now again, I haven't seen an Alien or Predator movie but why make the predator a friend (or girlfriend)? It boggles the mind. Aren't they supposed to be hunting humans if they aren't defenseless?

Now, time to finish my food. I can only hope no one used my fork (you know who you are!).
AVP. Oh so many years I have waited. And maybe that's why I can't write a bad review of this film. Sure, it's filled with actors you don't know (besides Henrickson) and directed by an ignorant fool, but hey, it's not that bad.

The action sequences were obviously cut short to ensure a PG-13 rating, but were good nonetheless. Especially the alien/predator scenes. However, the camera work was way too reckless during scenes involving a human being attacked. Again, I'm sure that has to do with Fox being greedy and pushing the softer rating. Hopefully, the DVD will include extra footage.

The special effects were very good, and you could barely tell when they used CGI. The queen was very well done.

Sure there were a lot of plot holes, but ANY director would be hard pressed to sew together the history of two huge franchises in 90 minutes while telling a new and interesting story. Freddy vs. Jason didn't need as many loose ends to be tied up because of it's timeline, so it worked pretty good. With AVP being set in the present, you have to write the film in a way that won't screw up the alien movies which are set further down the road. I think it worked well in that aspect.

In short, there is not the suspense found in the original Alien here, nor the pulse pounding action of Aliens, but for a good summer action flick that you can sit back and enjoy with all of your '13 and over' pals, AVP is a solid choice.
A fantasitc movie that not only had some great action, but some amazing effects. Alien Queen was AWESOME and I can't wait to see a sequel!!!
Paul W.S. Anderson is the bane of my existence. He seems to be on this Earth to destroy all my favorite franchises. Aliens (first and foremost), Predator, and Resident Evil. Who in God's name greenlight's this guy's scripts? I'm sorry, but I LOATHED this movie. I don't think I have ever been so disappointed in my life. There are no characters in this movie - they're all just talking fodder, and once thier purpose is used up, they're exterminated. The story is vapid and inconsistent with ANY of the established Aliens or Predator lore. Aliens grow INSTANTANEOUSLY. No, really, in one minute, and I mean one minute, there is a chestburster, and not one minute goes by before it's a full grown warrior. Chestbursters seem to have eaten their Wheaties, as they mature immediately and burst out minutes after the Facehugger detatches. A character uses a goddamn alien head as a SHIELD on their arm - without any burns. I cannot stand the fast-cut crap directing. Granted, there are a few pretty shots in the movie, but a few kernels of corn aren't gonna make me eat a turd. It is beyond me how this movie got to the screen. Producers, writers, script editors, assistant directors all had to contribute to this process, and every single one of them in this collaborative effort dropped the ball. There really is no story. If you know the actual AvP stuff - it's a brain-damaged rehash of it, and if you don't know the lore behind it - the story floats on such a weak and hackneyed premise that it's completely ridiculous. There's even a part where a predator BEFRIENDS a human. Yowzers. The entire time, I was hoping they weren't gonna screw this up - I checked all the pre-release info, watched the trailers and featurettes, and I nursed the idea that they might not tank the most successful sci-fi/horror franchises in history. Serves me right for trusting Hollywood. I'm not kidding, I really think I want to write the script for AvP2 (you know there's gonna be one), just to save these franchises from Paul Anderson...and for spite. He's crapped all over this one, and I really think he should apologize.
No matter who wins, we lose(THE PRICE OF ADMISSION!)
This movie sucks lard from the anus of a dead pigeon. :down: :down: :down: :down: :down: I wish I had more hands so I could give this movie five thumbs down! :rotten: :rotten: :rotten:
