Goofs

(at around 29 mins) When the expedition first reaches the hidden pyramid, one of the characters examines the wall markings after rubbing away the cobwebs from the stone. Are there any spiders that thrive 2000 feet below sea level in Antarctica? Spiders and other arachnids have been known to survive in extremely hostile environments, including at high altitudes, in climates of intense cold and where food supply appears to be scarce. The climate inside the pyramid was warm enough that the humans' breath did not condense. Other survival factors may have been present. Also, the material may have not been spider webs, but strings of dust and particles accumulated over time. See more »

Crazy Credits

Since the film has no opening credits, the end credits begin with an extended primary credits sequence. This sequence is shown over close-ups of various aspects of the Predator pyramid interior. See more »

Alternate Versions

In November 2005 Fox released an 'Unrated Edition' which runs nearly 8 minutes longer than the theatrical version. It features deleted plot and character scenes. It also has some alternative footage and added CGI blood effects. The story is better told. The violence and gore are stronger than in the PG-13 theatrical version. See more »

Sheepdom at its finest
15 October 2006 | by weissteinSee all my reviews

Another great movie spoiled by bad initial critique. And most people jumping on the bandwagon. They moved production of this movie out of Hollywood and lots of people virtually lost jobs to some east European studios where they shot most of the scenes. Lots of anger was present in Hollywood about this, no surprise that initial reviews were strictly negative. This movie is superb in nearly all aspects I watched it more times then all the prequels combined. I like the lead actress and Henriksen as Bishop Weyland, some crew man are actually more interesting then the crew in some Alien prequels, and of course the CGI is finally watchable and say state of the art, not some lame blinking LEDs all over.
