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.
This Movie Like most Verses movies was a grave dissappoint to me and my freinds. It just didn\'t deliver what the original Alien and pred movies did. Paul W.S Anderson really did screw up a great potential of a movie.
i like the movie
i like the movie
The movie was good and i dont know what all you people are getting at saying the movie was bad but i thought it was very good and there should defenetly be a sequel to AVP.
Ok, this movie is my favorite of the series just because of the great, I don't know what you'd call it, sentimental value I guess. Kind of the movie everyone close to me associates me with. But besides that, I have to say that it actually is a good movie. To avoid anything bias, I have to review this film based solely on what it tries to do. It tries to give salivating fans that've been waiting for years without their favorite movies on the silver screen loads of the creature gore they've been waiting for. Based on what the film is based on, it's darn good. More monster rumbling and acid spewing than you can shake a Predator spear at. If it is watched solely for its entertainment value, this dazzling effects laden and highly anticipated cult classic will be one of the best movies a person could watch. Sure, a lot of the dialogue flat out sux, it seemed a little bit rushed, the character development is sadly sacrificed for creature battles, and the movie is far too short, but still, it can be thoroughly enjoyed by those salivating fans it was made for if watched for kicks. Plus the musical score never ceases to amaze.
AVP Alien vs Predator
This movie was pretty good. Wait let me refrase that. It was the best!! Thats my opinion. The only thing I found odd about it is that Weyland Yutani is in it and the alien movies that he's in are based many more years in the future. But other than that it was pretty darn good. If you haven't seen it then you should if you want to get the whole story, because I'm not gonna be the one to spoil it for you.
I thought it was ok, 4 a first movie,but their was just not enough action.The first two predators died way too fast,and then scar(the last predator) was the only one left to kill the rest of the aliens and the big bitch, and then he died.Not enough all out battles like in the books.The upside to this is that the second movie can only get better.....I hope.Its going to be R rated and much more gritty like the older movies. I cant wait untill december.
the idea is good but what is with moives latey got to relate to pepole? "like on earth 2007" in the artic? i mean come on all this avp moive was ooo look "PREDATOR" OOO HERES BIG SCARY ALIEN OOOO look at them go to much flashy chimics to get pepole back into it its almost like they sell it like mtv sells there crapy music and cgi crap come on you can totaly tell that crap is fake.. and in this avp2 the whole ship crashing back to earth? come on a race that surfs the universe for hunts and they dont got a computer that tells them when a alien lifeform is on there own ship come on that lil predalien should porbley get cought or killed right off the bat then then have the moive go into a 100 years later kind of thing and they end up fighting spacemarines like in aliens i mean you did see a alien logo on the chick jets cockpit didint you? that means they fought them befor
