During an archaeological expedition on Bouvetøya Island in Antarctica, a team of archaeologists and other scientists find themselves caught up in a battle between the two legends. Soon, the team realize that only one species can win.
The "Alien" constantly switches between human-sized (practical) and around the size of an elephant (CG). See more »
Down for this?
I'm actually more comfortable with a pen and paper.
I've seen you with a pen and paper. See how you do with a gun. This ain't the one-man army, though. You stay, you fight.

No animals were harmed in the production of this screenplay, but a guy in a scuba suit was. He's ok now. See more »
I had the good fortune of being both in a good mood and in good company tonight, so I decided to see this with my roommate.
The result was an hour and a half of constant laughter and spasms of the abdomen. While this movie had the script that a ten year old mental patient could write better, the fact that it was an absolutely horrible rip off of AvP didn't help either. Don't get me wrong, rip-off's are fine as far as I'm concerned, but when you butcher the original script (which was no polished pearl either, truth be told) in such a brutal and merciless way, that's just wrong.
I think the acting is actually sometimes even done better here in Croatia, just as the camera-work (Croatia is renowned for awful quality of both camera and script, not to mention acting, mind you), and the voice-overs (yes, voice-overs!) are done just as bad.
The whole movie gives you the impression of being made from top to bottom in a 100 square foot radius, the scenes are done in one and the same place over and over again, only the angle changes a bit, a prop or two is added, and occasionally smoke... and the costumes... my god, the costumes.
I won't go into further detail here, as this was an absolute disaster of a film, and while it would get a 9 out of 10 on my fun-o-meter, the objective grade here is 2, and I'm being generous.
If you're looking for an action flick, or anything to do with Sci-Fi, don't see this. If you enjoy a good trash movie like I do, and had fun watching Leben Tod - Night of the Dead 2006 (a must-see for trash lovers), this deserves to be on your to-watch list.
