Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team after being hypersleep for 57 years. The moon that the Nostromo visited has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, colonial marines have impressive firepower, but will that be enough?
After a space merchant vessel perceives an unknown transmission as a distress call, its landing on the source moon finds one of the crew attacked by a mysterious lifeform, and they soon realize that its life cycle has merely begun.
In 2018, a mysterious new weapon in the war against the machines, half-human and half-machine, comes to John Connor on the eve of a resistance attack on Skynet. But whose side is he on, and can he be trusted?
A cybernetic warrior from a post-apocalyptic future travels back in time to protect a 25-year old drifter and his future wife from a most advanced robotic assassin and to ensure they both survive a nuclear attack.
Following the events of Alien vs. Predator, and the maturation of the chestburster that erupted from the body of Scar (the Predator that defeated the Alien Queen) into an adult Predalien, the Predator scout ship crashes in the woods of Gunnison County. A local, Buddy Benson, and his son, Sam, are hunting in the forest and witness the crash, but they are chased and are implanted with alien embryos by facehuggers along with several homeless people living in the sewers. Meanwhile another Predator lands seeking out the Alien and destroying 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

[to Ricky as she reveals her swimsuit]
I couldn't decide on which suit I wanted to wear, so... Now... you tell me... are you looking at me or the clock?

The opening title card features many sound effects from the previous movies, such as motion tracker beeps from Aliens, and the Predator POV humming. See more »
Really, only the review for Spinal Tap's Shark Sandwich album will do this terrible, terrible film justice, but IMDb's censors won't let me be that succinct.
This is the sort of movie one gets when two teenage boys are let loose with tens of millions of dollars of studio money and no parental control. There's no doubt that the Strauss brothers are big fans of the Alien franchise, it's stamped on every frame of this shockingly bad movie. Even a short exchange between Ripley and Newt only available on the extended edition of Aliens is milked for a sick joke in a particularly unpleasant scene in a maternity ward.
All this could be forgiven if it was at least entertaining in a brain dead kind of way, but the titular beasts aren't given enough screen time, and much of the action consists of people shooting in the dark at shadows off-camera. I can at least give a desultory hand-clap to the amount of gore, something the previous AvP lacked in an ill-advised attempt to make it child-friendly, but in this film it's all wrong, characters we've just got to know have their heads ripped apart or melted without any concern for the viewer's relationship with them. The film-makers probably think they're cleverly wrong-footing us, the way that Ridley Scott did by killing off Tom Skerritt's character in Alien, but they'd be wrong, they're just rubbish.
I haven't even started on the script and cast of characters, they're both laughable.
Anybody with any influence in Hollywood, I implore you: never let Beavis and Butthead behind the camera again.
I can only hope that many people lost their jobs after this debacle and returned to lives of crushing drudgery. Never mind the writers going on strike, I'm surprised that audiences haven't started angrily picketing cinemas with shocking dross like this coming out of Hollywood.
