The ship they take to the island is an homage to The X-Files: Piper Maru (1996) (The X-Files), where a French ship called the Piper Maru finds a sunken World War II plane containing the black oil alien. ("Piper Maru" was used because it was Gillian Anderson's daughter's first and middle name.) See more »
(at around 38 mins) Sebastian sets the clock on the sarcophagus to October 10, 2004 - 10/10/2004, because the Aztec calendar was supposedly based on 10's (the decimal system, erroneously called "metric" here). Yet, why would an Aztec civilization set a calendar to align with the Gregorian calendar, which is what our modern calendar is and wasn't developed until centuries later by the Romans? The Aztecs would not recognize what we call "October" as the 10th month. See more »

The Theatrical version is the first of three existing versions of this film. Carrying the PG-13 rating in an effort to broaden the audience reach to kids and young teens, this version includes considerable creature violence, but only implied violence against human characters. See more »
Just watched it again yesterday - it's striking how good the action is compared to the ridiculous dialogue. I completely understand why this movie got such terrible reviews; after all, it marked the first "let's make a quick buck" entry in the two beloved Alien and Predator franchises and was done by a director who many felt didn't treat the material with the respect it deserved. When I watched it yesterday I got angry at times because some of the dialogue - well, most of it, actually - is truly awful. It's hard to take characters or a story seriously when nearly every sentence spoken resembles lines from a parody of cheap science-fiction and horror movies from the fifties and sixties. But despite all those flaws I have to admit I enjoyed the movie from start to finish - because of the amazing set- and creature-design and the more than decent action sequences and special effects. Whoever designed those really scored and seems to have a great love for the art of Giger and the previous films. So if you can get past the silly characters and you're able to ignore the more obvious shortcomings (like the idiotic decision to make the film PG-13) you're in for a fun ride. My vote: 6.5 out of 10.
