No one can escape from the aggressive predatory Xenomorphs, and shortly after the Antarctic bloodshed in Alien vs. Predator (2004), a crippled Predator ship crash-lands on the dense forest of Gunnison, Colorado. As a result, a vicious Predalien hybrid, along with numerous Stage 1 Xenomorphs, or Face-huggers, scatter in all directions, infecting everyone unfortunate enough to cross their path. Once more, the Earth is a battlefield, as both extraterrestrial species are fighting for supremacy, and the humans become stuck in the middle. Now, the fate of the entire city rests in the hands of Sheriff Eddie Morales, and a handful of residents. Can they ensure the fate of humankind?Written by
Following the directors' specific instructions, Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc. (ADI) once again redesigned the Predator. As opposed to the muscular, comic-inspired Predators of the first film, Alien vs. Predator, Wolf returned to a slimmer configuration -- more akin to the original Stan Winston design. "We were adamant about creating a new, unique Predator," the Strause brothers said. "With a physique and features that reflected the original films -- and the Wolf achieved that in spades." The directors found the Predators from the previous film too disproportioned, and tried to use Whyte as a performer as much as possible; with only one main Predator, its proportions were based strictly on the performer's. The Predator's head features, however, a new configuration: a flatter face, proportionally bigger mouth and mandibles, as well as two single upper canines. "We wanted to re-proportion the face," said Tom Woodruff, Jr. in AVPR: Inside the Monster Shop, "giving the brow a more cunning, sweptback angle, like a predatory cat." To add a visual clue of the Predator's past fights with Aliens, the left side of its face is plagued by a considerable acid burn, which has almost completely consumed the creature's upper left mandible, and blinded its left eye (which was re-colored in post-production). This aspect was inspired by "Broken Tusk", the Predator character from the original Aliens vs. Predator comic book series. Colin Strause explained the connection: "One of the cool things was -- we wanted, y'know -- to give a little throwback to the comic book fans, so that's why we kind of did the Broken-Tusk type of idea, with the melted off mandible."

(at around 1h 21 mins) When the guy is firing the Glock from the helicopter, he empties it, the slide locks back, but sound effects are added for a revolver hammer falling on an empty cylinder. Glocks, and most other semi-autos, make no sound after the slide locks back and the trigger is squeezed. See more »
Okay, now, take your time. There you go.

The opening title card features many sound effects from the previous movies, such as motion tracker beeps from Aliens, and the Predator POV humming. See more »
AVP2 Wasen't as bad as i had been told but there was still something lacking that made both AVP movies not live up to their original standards it felt as if two movies were kinda spliced together with the Alien vs Predator battles happening outside the town and near the ending happening in the town and watching the town people get on with their daily life it didn't feel like a alien or a predator movie but still i did like the fact that only one Predator could take on so many foe's and made it feel again the Predator is a one man army but the Predator is seen too much for my likening unlike in the 1st Predator movie were he is not scene fully to nearer the end and the main characters are really underdeveloped and give me little to no interest at all about their fate and it feels like the story was kinda rushed throughout but despite this not a bad movie to watch and get some friends round and watch with a few beers probably better to rent this movie rather than buy it and blu ray really makes a difference. but there's hope the new Predators movie makes up for the AVP Movies but still avp2 is worth a shot it could end up as it is to me a guilty pleasure as fury the film fan would say enjoy the show.
