Movie Reviews

The shock heard around the world...

(2 out of 5 stars)

"The title of my review obviously refers to the PG-13 rating that this bad-boy received when it was released. Seriously, did anyone see that coming? I was blown away, and I actually almost boycotted seeing the thing, but then again, who am I to judge before actually seeing the finished product. After watching it I can say that it is a very weak attempt to capitalize on geeky fanboyism, and it's a shame because a lot of people were willing to shell out hard-earned (or at least their parents hard-earned) money to see two of the most iconic creatures in sci-fi history duke it out on the big screen.

Am I the only one who was bothered by the fact that there was like ONE Predator in this entire movie?

The film has its fair share of deliciously claustrophobic sets, and so I'll throw credit where credit is due. It serves up some nicely manipulated chills and there are some jumpy moments and even some surprisingly edgy violent moments considering the rating (which is only one of the films hindrances) but overall the film cannot get out of its own way. The script offers some interesting connective tissue when concerning the relationship between the two species of alien, but it also seems to dumb down nearly everything else until it becomes just another generic science fiction movie.

Run of the mill.

I will say this; I'm thankful that this film stars the magnificent Sanaa Lathan. I seriously adore her in everything she does and will watch her in anything, even this half-baked creation. She is just perfection on the screen. Even while meandering through this films murky waters, she manages to make her presence believable and engaging. If a lesser actress had been cast, this film would have fallen apart rapidly (see `The Ruins' for an example of poor acting destroying a mediocre film).

While I cannot wholeheartedly recommend this movie (in fact, I refuse to recommend it since it really doesn't need to be seen) I will say that if you happen to stumble onto it you won't be completely devastated. It has some things going for it. It's not a horribly bad movie, it's just a big disappointment. Knowing what this movie could have been makes the experience so much less than rewarding."
Unrated Edition: Not a big improvement, but yeah, slightly b

"The main difference between the Unrated and Theatrical edition of Alien vs Predator, are some deleted scenes, that are here to provide us more info about the characters, on the build-up first half of the film. Sadly, after that build-up, the film never fully delivers. It's like the characters (included the 3 different Predators) are already there to make us care for them, but ultimately the film never delivers in the tension it could have easily had.
Also, the deaths on this version are presented with added CGI blood, which as absurd as it sounds, works sort of well, since it feels nearer to a Predator or Alien flick than its theatrical PG-13 version. It never gets too gory here, and the deaths are as anti-climactic as in the original cut. No fights are added (as the back-cover announces), just those added character scenes. Anyway, if you're a fan of the franchise like me, picking up this DVD with such a great presentation and those few added elements will make you view this film as a more decent effort. Avoid Aliens vs Predator: Requiem, which is insulting to most fans of the original films. This at least has great sets and and interesting story that could have been better explored with a more capable director."
