Alien vs Predator

Directed by: Paul W.S. Anderson

An expedition of archaeologists on Earth discover an Aztec temple hidden under the Antarctic circle, housing a host of Alien creatures. A group of coming-of-age Predators have also come to the temple, as it has long been a training ground for their race. From there on, it's Aliens vs. Predators, with the humans caught in the middle.

In delivering PG-13-rated excitement, Alien vs. Predator is an acceptably average science-fiction action thriller with some noteworthy highlights, even if it squanders its opportunity to intelligently combine two popular and R-rated franchises. Rabid fans can justifiably ask "Is that all there is?" after a decade of development hell and eager anticipation, but we're compensated by reasonably logical connections to the Alien legacy and the still-kicking Predator franchise (which hinted at AVP rivalry at the end of Predator 2); some cleverly claustrophobic sets, tense atmosphere and impressive digital effects; and a climactic AVP smackdown that's not half bad. This disposable junk should've been better, but nobody who's seen Mortal Kombat or Resident Evil should be surprised by writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson's lack of imagination. As a brisk, 90-minute exercise in generic thrills, however, Anderson's work is occasionally impressive... right up to his shameless opening for yet another sequel.

AVP nice movie

The movie was great and all but I wished that the other two predators had a bit more action as they didnt do much, Celtic's screen time was alright but Chopper hardly got any screen time, If they are making AVP3 I hope it has a lot more action between the aliens and predators as both movies seem to not focus much on them but bottom line is it is a great movie.

5 Stars

Umm, Im sorry everyone who posted low scores, but i thuroughly enjoyed this movie. I neve rsaw any of the alien or Predator movies before this, so i had no idea what to expect. But i must say, i enjoyed the fact that no one was a larger than life hero. Every one of those characters had fualts, and fears, and that\'s what makes them realistic. I enjoy re watching this movie anytime im on an art block, and it just makes my imagination soar, let me tell you!

So overall, i love this movie, and it will always be one of my favorites~


i love it

good movie stop paying it out u make and avp movie than anyway i think it was really good but the only bad thing is the 2 predators die by 1 alien thats just FUCKING STUPId they should of died nearly at the end and a better way than hardly putting up a fight and it was soo un violant and hardly any action thats the only bad part i like the pyramid and all the culture and the predalien coming out of the predators chest is a great set up for the next movie

IT was CRAP!!

This movie was a complete disgrace to the Aliens and Predator series! the only thing that made me give it a 2/5 is because the fucking predator teams up with the bitch! it wasnt cool, it wasnt original. the predator would have killed her had she not given him the plasma caster ( Laser Shoulder gun ). however, i did like the aliens in the movie, i would hope that a Aliens Vs predator 3 would come, seeing as the 2nd one was better than the first.

5 Stars

I think it was the perfect film... well almost perfect.
Pred Killer

To be quiet honest, I love the film, except the Predators, which aren't supposed to be stupid linemen (Celtic), they're supposed to be nimble, like ninjas, but the Aliens were depicted quiet well, mixing that feel of ultimate killing machine (how they ruthlessly slaughter preds and humans alike) brought back that feel from the first Alien, and the Queen returning from Aliens, more beastly and brutal than ever was amazing, I was gaping, literally. This film is very underrated... very...

I there was a 2 1/2 then thats what would chose...I think that at least 1 pred should live, it wasn't the greatest movie I've ever seen, bottom line.

Let'em come

I disagree with you guys who give a low rate to this movie. Try to forget about previous versions of both Alien and Predator, and then be honest about this. i hope a sequel will come soon, this time happening in a big city, with a lot of human killings.

This horror that has been loosed upon us by Paul WS Anderson is as appaling as it is surprising. After directing such theatrical treats as Solier and Mortal Kombat he crashed and burned. Nobody but someone like Spielberg or Cameron should have been allowed the rights to the Alien/Predator franchise.Like, whats wrong with your head man! He cant come up with any kind of plot so he vulgarly pieces together a Alien and Predator to make one wienerish monster. No script. No larger than life heroes. Anhy AvP comics have infinitly more depth, character development, plot, and explosive kick-assness. Bad Paul! In what twisted, false recess of your compulsive rudimentry elements of instinctivness that you call a brain, made you think this was going to be a good idea?!
