Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The action is rendered with such disconcertingly low light levels -- and of course there is heavy rain for the climatic sequences -- that it can be a strain to simply see what is occurring on-screen. Then again, maybe that's for the best.
Rotten: So lacking in imagination is this movie that the Brothers Strause and writer Shane Salerno keep scrambling back to the original movie for inspiration.
Rotten: The problems with the movie are twofold and easy to spot: the acting stinks and you can't understand what's going on.
Rotten: Ho, ho, ho -- the joke's on anyone who pays to see this.
This movie I have to say was awesome for graphics and stuff, but the first out does this movie by the long shot. It's really lazy, poor storyline. If you are one who only wants to see violence being played mindlessly, then yes, this movie is great for you. WATCH THE FIRST ONE ITS WAY BETTER!
Best movie ever.
Everyone should see this great movie. If you love violence and explosions you have to see this. I'd say you'd love this. This is my honest opion.
Wow, I could NOT believe how horrible this movie was. I went in with very low expectations given the film's reputation and how mediocre the first "Aliens vs Predator" film was. The only reason I watched it at all was because I'm a big Aliens/Predator fan, and because I thought it would still be mildly entertaining going in with appropriate expectations.
I was amazed at how wrong I was. Everything was plain pathetic. The special effects were decent for some things, but astonishingly bad on many -- the facehuggers were absolutely terrible and looked so fake I thought iTunes had sent me a fan film as a practical joke. In fact, the whole movie had the feel of an amateur film to it, with the exceptionally inane dialogue, the poorly-conceived plot that involves LOTS of things that make NO SENSE happening, the cardboard characters (who are scarcely developed at all, probably because there's too many of them), to the bad lighting (it's so dark you can barely see anything). A fan film done with no budget would have been better, and they'd certainly have at least SOME respect for the key features and continuity of the Aliens and Predator franchises.
I was especially outraged by the tampering they did with the xenomorph. The new kind of alien who can impregnate humans without the use of a facehugger was the stupidest idea ever and totally overturned what makes the xenomorph what it is. Especially moronic is the movie makers' total ignorance of human anatomy since this creature still lays eggs down peoples' throats but they somehow end up in womens' unterus (it can only "infect" women)???
iTunes doesn't offer a zero stars rating, but even if it did, I'd still give it one star due to some half-decent action in the last 15-20 minutes of the film. And after my shock at how bad it was wore off, in retrospect it's not the WORST movie I've ever seen. Although it was still pretty close.
The whole Aliens vs. Predator theme has so much potential. I don't know why they make garbage like this. They should just convert the first Dark Horse comics Aliens vs. Predator series into a film. Now that would be great.
