It's LAME, and what a shame
This latest entry in the franchise was a big letdown. It turns the possibilities of an AVP story into a tired 'Friday the 13th' spam-in-a-cabin scenario.
As with the first AVP, it's the human characters and their back-story that do the biggest disservice. No one cares about the cliché cookie-cutter people, not that you're give much opportunity. Even if their characters had been given ANY chance to develop, I'll guess I'd feel the same.
The actions of the Predator often seem to run counter to established M.O. The plot drags in some areas and glosses over others too quickly. So many missed opportunities... Most action scenes are under-lit. What distinguishes one creature from another or from the background? Rather than conveying mood it shows a lack of conviction for shoddy movie-making.
There have other sequels in the two film series that I've enjoyed, but it seems they both get a bit diluted every time a new movie hits the screen. It's a darn shame. There's still SO much potential here for a good kick-ass movie. I wonder if we haven't already lost the option for another film to feature JUST the aliens or JUST the predators?
Here's hoping for a better script and the right director somewhere down the line.
