Storyline

Following the events of Alien vs. Predator, and the maturation of the chestburster that erupted from the body of Scar (the Predator that defeated the Alien Queen) into an adult Predalien, the Predator scout ship crashes in the woods of Gunnison County. A local, Buddy Benson, and his son, Sam, are hunting in the forest and witness the crash, but they are chased and are implanted with alien embryos by facehuggers along with several homeless people living in the sewers. Meanwhile another Predator lands seeking out the Alien and destroying evidence of their presence on Earth. The dwellers of the town find themselves in the middle of a battlefield between the two deadly extraterrestrial creatures, and the small group of survivors splits between the leadership of Sheriff Eddie Morales and the bad-boy Dallas Howard. Both have different opinions about the best means to escape from the beings. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Directors Colin Strause and Greg Strause wanted the film to be in 3-D, however the idea was dropped, because it would be too expensive. See more »

Goofs

In the beginning of the movie in the extended cut, when the Predalien is "born". It is shown that the ship is passing Saturn. Once the Predalien starts wrecking havoc on the ship it crash lands back on earth. Saturn is millions of miles away, how can it land back on earth so quickly? Also chances are remote that they'll crash land back on earth. This is a plot hole that was present in the theatrical cut, but the unrated version adds a scene that shows that while the mother ship is heading back to the Predator planet past Saturn, a scout ship detached from it which proceeded to head back to orbit Earth, this scout ship contained the Predalien.

Kelly O'Brien: It doesn't make any sense. Gilliam Circle is right in the center of town. We'll be surrounded by those things.
Dallas: Wait a second... what are you saying?
Kelly O'Brien: I think the colonel was lying.
Darcy Benson: That's crazy. The government doesn't lie to people.
Kelly O'Brien: The army thinks about containment first. They can't risk this getting any worse.
Morales: Help is a few miles down that road and they're waiting for us. Now, it you won't drive us there, I will.
Dallas: Eddie, if she's right, the only thing down that road are more of those things.
Morales: ...

5 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

Really, only the review for Spinal Tap's Shark Sandwich album will do this terrible, terrible film justice, but IMDb's censors won't let me be that succinct.

This is the sort of movie one gets when two teenage boys are let loose with tens of millions of dollars of studio money and no parental control. There's no doubt that the Strauss brothers are big fans of the Alien franchise, it's stamped on every frame of this shockingly bad movie. Even a short exchange between Ripley and Newt only available on the extended edition of Aliens is milked for a sick joke in a particularly unpleasant scene in a maternity ward.

All this could be forgiven if it was at least entertaining in a brain dead kind of way, but the titular beasts aren't given enough screen time, and much of the action consists of people shooting in the dark at shadows off-camera. I can at least give a desultory hand-clap to the amount of gore, something the previous AvP lacked in an ill-advised attempt to make it child-friendly, but in this film it's all wrong, characters we've just got to know have their heads ripped apart or melted without any concern for the viewer's relationship with them. The film-makers probably think they're cleverly wrong-footing us, the way that Ridley Scott did by killing off Tom Skerritt's character in Alien, but they'd be wrong, they're just rubbish.

I haven't even started on the script and cast of characters, they're both laughable.

Anybody with any influence in Hollywood, I implore you: never let Beavis and Butthead behind the camera again.

I can only hope that many people lost their jobs after this debacle and returned to lives of crushing drudgery. Never mind the writers going on strike, I'm surprised that audiences haven't started angrily picketing cinemas with shocking dross like this coming out of Hollywood.
