Storyline

In Gunnison County, a spacecraft crashes in the woods bringing a powerful hybrid Alien hosted inside the pilot Predator. A local, Buddy Benson, and his son, Sam, are hunting in the forest and witness the crash, but they are chased and killed by the Alien. Meanwhile another Predator lands on the spot seeking out the Alien and destroys evidence of their presence on Earth. The dwellers of the town find themselves in the middle of a battlefield between the two deadly extraterrestrial creatures, and the small group of survivors splits between the leadership of Sheriff Eddie Morales and the bad-boy Dallas Howard. Both have different opinions about the best means to escape from the beings. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Suspension of disbelief goes a long way
26 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So, reading most of the comments on here, one would imagine that the film consists of someone stabbing you in the eye with an icepick for an hour and a half... I don't feel that to be the case, but to each his own.

If you expect this film to wow you in the same way as the originals, you'll be sorely disappointed. Admit it: we were all a lot younger when those films first came out, and I'm willing to bet that most of us watched them at a much earlier, less jaded, point in our lives. So yeah, this movie isn't as great as its progenitors; oh well.

However, that doesn't make this a horrible watch. Don't go in expecting a life-altering experience; go in expecting two warring alien races, complete with all the requisite carnage and mayhem, and you'll be just pleased.

I'll leave the more shocking moments to other reviewers to divulge, but just be bear in mind: the events aren't actually happening, and everything that happens just makes it all the more believable that these aliens/predators are just as brutal as we've come to expect.

All in all, another reviewer said it perfectly: it's a terrible film and an awesome movie.
