AVP: Alien vs. Predator (2004)
A hands-on review (NO SPOILERS)
(NO SPOILERS) Many people, including myself at one point, have asked how this movie is. If you are an avid sci-fi movie-lover, I'd say this movie is a "very good". If, apart from that, you are a Alien and/or Predator movie and/or comic-book freak of the creatures, or even an amateur... it is IMHO just AWESOME. If you are neither, then there is little background to support the small details a fan will look and love right away at, but I think regular action-movie lovers will like it anyway.
Having said that, there are no flaws on the script and the acting is excellent. Except maybe a couple of small ones, everything is very "beleivable" and there is very little or no "stupid humor" at all, the one most people who are not American usually dislike.
Effects are top of the line, same as the sound production. You cannot tell anything is CGI right away... you just "assume" because it cannot be made in reality. But even the gravity is *perfect*. Gravity is a part of CGI animation that IMHO is first shown flawless during a WHOLE movie. Apart from that, nothing looks plastic or "fake". These observations regarding the CGI quality are two where even Lucas' movies (Star Wars) fall short... and I am also a fan of those.
Personally, I've seen it twice and own all the 4 Alien DVDs and the 2 Predator DVDs and I've been a fan since Alien (the 1st movie).
