For real?
27 November 2011 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I initially thought this movie was going to be a spoof of the recent popular movies such as "Aliens vs Predator" and "Avatar", because of the title of the this movie. And truth be told, the title of this movie is one of the most unimaginative ones I have seen in all of 2011. But all the same, I decided to watch the movie because I had nothing else to watch and I was semi-interested to see just how they would be making fun of these movies.

Then as I sat down to watch the movie, I realized that this wasn't a spoof in the likes of "Epic Movie", "Date Movie", "Scary Movie" and all those types. No, this was actually a serious movie. That baffled me, especially when they picked a title like that.

All throughout the movie I was sitting there with the sensation as if I had put on an old 1980's horror movie, because it definitely had that feel to it.

Well, let me start with the bad things in the movie:

At some point in the movie, Ava (played by Cassie Fliegel) states that English was the simplest language she had encountered in the universe. And this comes from a far superior race in evolution and technology. Wait? Back it up just a notch. In the beginning of the movie, when she is in her spaceship and launching that robotar down on Earth, the text on her console is in English! Are you kidding me?

The scythe creature that Ava was hunting, it looked like something they had copied from the "Feast" movies. At least the design of the face did. The rest of it was basically just a guy in a jumpsuit, and it was painstakingly obvious that it was just that! And the part about it turning invisible, can anyone who have seen "Predator" raise their hands as say 'I have seen that skill somewhere' ?

Moving on to Ava herself. Clearly a rip off of the creatures from "Avatar" mixed with something from "X-Men". And also, you would think that when choosing a corporeal form to manifest on Earth, you would select some clothing suitable for the environment, not a snug, tight-fitting latex suit! A lot of the dialogue in "Aliens vs Avatars" was halting at best, and makes you wonder who exactly talks like that in such situations.

Okay then, moving on the good parts of the movie: The cast; they actually had some decent enough people in the movie, despite them having a bad script and poor dialogue to work with. Most memorable was Ginny You (playing Dana) and Jason Lockhart (playing Tyler).

"Aliens vs Avatars" had some good enough camera work in it, and there were some pretty nice scenic moments as well.

However, as an overall entertainment, "Aliens vs Avatars" is not really all that great. And I thought it was going to be a comedy making fun of recent sci-fi movies, so I was sorely disappointed to find out it wasn't. I suppose if you are a fan of anyone on the cast list in this movie, it would be worthwhile to sit down and watch it, otherwise, don't bother with this movie, unless you have absolutely nothing else at hand. But wait, isn't there usually something showing on TV?
