Let me start by saying i'am huge Aliens fan, i love Predator and i played the Aliens Vs Predator games to death and they were just fantastic. The first film bothered me and i didn't like it, but i didn't hate it. This "movie" however i do hate with a passion, heres why.
My biggest problem with this film is that its set in suburban America! Thats not the iconic setting you come to expect from an Alien movie or the true AVP series which are the comics and games which are set in the same murky dark settings of the Alien films. It takes all the imagination that could have been had in a futuristic setting and dashes it. I just can not get over that, you have a great series of AVP comics and games that helped to create a truly great setting ,atmosphere,locations, characters and some great stories but no they went with the biggest horror movie cliché of all setting it in a small suburban town ignoring all the potential the AVP series and giving us a cheap horror flick, honestly sometimes when i heard an alien creep up on someone i almost expect Jason Voorhees to kill them instead.
But lets talk about the Aliens and Predators, what can i say about them? well they look like they should at least. But the way they act is if you'll excuse the pun "alien" to how they would in the games and comics. The Predator is best example...hes meant to be hunting the Aliens but they manage to get the best of him a lot in the this, sneaking up behind him and if you know anything about Predators you'd know there's no way this would happen, they're highly trained killing machines and i just thought the whole thing was like cops and robbers, the Predator is the cop after the Aliens (the robbers) and they go around town running riot out witting him on every turn and quite frankly hes a joke, he cant even hit them with his shoulder cannon.
The fight scenes...they where none in this movie, it was so dark i could never make any of it out. It sounded cool though. And also, i noticed a lot of the high tension scenes are just taken off the Alien and Predator movies...action for action. There's one in particular i just could not believe. Aliens corner a girl she sits up against a wall while the Alien brings his head down really close to hers to try and get some tension....remind you of that famous scene from Aliens 3? Yes because its exactly it, it was stolen and rehashed for this "movie". There are many other examples, such as the Predator healing his wounds up on a tree and letting out a roar afterward taken from the first Predator film.
There were some issues with the music as well, for example any scene involving the Predator you hear that jungle music from the first Predator movie. No imagination at all, i'am not sure if this was want to be a homage or something but to me it just came off as "look thats the predator music!" trying to let us all know its going to be a scene with the Predator in it, awful, stupid, and unimaginative. They'res also a scene near the end, where a radar can be seen and it makes the noise of the motion detector from Aliens, now that may have been a homage but all it did was make me want to watch Aliens!!.
Story, oddly there is none what so ever. First thirty minutes is a very bad teenage movie nothing appealing what so ever at all. Characters seem to just appear out of thin air in every scene they're just so uninteresting you don't want to get to know them you just want to see the Aliens and Predator killing them. By the end of the film i honest to god could not name any of the characters.
Overall, Awful, one of the worst films i've ever seen. Go and watch it, because if you can get through this "movie" the rest of your life no matter the struggles ,will never be as tough to swallow as this garbage.
