Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem is a B movie that truly earns its B.
L.A. Weekly
Chopped down to 40 minutes, this could be a wickedly cool short; as is, it's a passable slasher that's still nowhere near the interspecies smackdown we geeks have long imagined.
The Hollywood Reporter
A dull actioner that looks like a bad video game.
Aliens vs. Predator -- Requiem simply exists, nodding to the continuity of the larger series and opening the door for, yes, another entry in the franchise. In Hollywood as in outer space, spawn begets spawn.
The film's major draws are R-rated gore and some nice physical effects, proof that a man in a top-of-the-line monster suit can still be more effective than CGI.
An orgy of mindless violence, a random collection of bloody bodies, alien misanthropy, and slobbering carnage designed to bore straight into the pleasure centers of 13-year-old boys and leave the rest of us wondering when the movies got so damn loud.
--- Ho, ho, ho - the joke's on anyone who pays to see this.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
It's unclear whether any of the actors here have promising political careers since their only purposes are to serve as prey, adversaries and involuntary incubators to their guests.
The camerawork is a smidge too shaky and the lighting/color design too dark for me to relish the Predator-on-Alien butt-kicking.
An early but strong contender for worst movie of 2008.
The problem with the "Alien vs. Predator" series is that the humans keep getting in the way.
