Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

In delivering non-18-rated excitement, Alien vs. Predator is an acceptably average science-fiction action thriller with some noteworthy highlights, even if it squanders its opportunity to intelligently combine two popular franchises. Rabid fans can justifiably ask: "Is that all there is?" after a decade of development hell and eager anticipation, but we're compensated by reasonably logical connections to the Alien legacy and the still-kicking Predator franchise (which hinted at AVP rivalry at the end of Predator 2); some cleverly claustrophobic sets, tense atmosphere and impressive digital effects; and a climactic AVP smackdown that's not half bad. This disposable junk should've been better, but nobody who's seen Mortal Kombat or Resident Evil should be surprised by writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson's lack of imagination. As a brisk, 90-minute exercise in generic thrills, however, Anderson's work is occasionally impressive... right ! up to his shameless opening for yet another sequel.--Jeff Shannon

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for the purists... 31 Dec 2004
By Eskimo
Format:DVD
Aliens. Predators. You would have thought with two of the greatest cinenmatic monsters in one film, it'd be difficult to get it wrong. Still, Paul 'WS' Anderson does a fairly good job. This time a team of Arctic explorers led by Charles Bishop Weyland (the founding 'father' of the 'Company' from the Alien series) are drawn to a temple in the antartic after it's identified by satellite. Thus begins an hour and a half of thrills, spills, schlock horror and a total absence of anything to put it on a par with the franchises that spawned it.

Which is not to say that it's a bad film. Whether or not you enjoy Alien vs. Predator is really dependent on what you're expecting. If you're looking for the intelligent plot exposition you found in the first 3 Alien movies, you're likely to be heavily disappointed. If, however, you're looking for the gratuitous gore (albeit largely Predator / Alien) and sense of suspense that went with the first Predator film, then you're a lot more likely to walk away happy.

AVP is somewhat of a mixed bag. Anderson is definitely a man who believes in old school cinematics (he wisely dispensed with the use of CGI unless it was absolutely necessary), but some of the cinematography and editing leaves a lot to be desired (one of the main AVP fights is shot so close and edited so quickly that it makes it very difficult to really see what's going on). For the most part however, the film retains a palpable sense of tension throughout and is a guaranteed to provide a few jumps and thrills for first time viewers. Special mention should be made for the set design which is superb and quite convincing - it's obvious where Andersons forte lies...

Where the film does fall down though, is on its script and storyline.

If you forget that this is the continuation of two very successful franchises, and consider this as a graphic novel adaptation, then it is actually a bit more successful than people give it credit for.

In tone and spirit, this is much more of a Predator movie than an Alien movie - it is as an Alien movie this most disappoints. However, as Predator movie I would suggest this is better than Predator 2 was.

The plot is set in modern time, when a heat signature revealing a hidden pyramid under the ice is seen by satellite. The owner of the satellite, played by Lance Henrikson, brings together a team of archaeologists, biologists and `security' (the equivalent of Star Trek redshirts I guess) to investigate. What they find is a pyramid used by Predators to hunt the ultimate prey - the Alien.

The rest of the story is just bunkum, and don't think too hard about many of the continuity points because much of it does not quite work, but the action scenes are handled adequately, mostly by pilfering ideas from the previous movies and reproducing them in watered down form for characters we have not yet come to care about. Best original (-ish) idea was that the pyramid reconfigures every 10 minutes once activated, to add spice to the hunt and help split our characters up to be picked off one at a time.

Saana Lathan is no Sigourney Weaver, but a stronger character than one might expect from Paul W. S. Anderson (who also directed Mortal Kombat). Nice to see Colin Salmon, the English actor of several Brosnan era Bond movies, in another role - shame it wasn't in a better movie.

Overall, this is not a disaster as a movie given its rushed production and low bdget - but don't go in with any expectations of anything approaching even the worst of the Alien movies. Think of it as a so-so Predator sequel and you get the idea.

3 stars - I'll opt for 3, because of the corny script at times.

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
One reviewer has pronounced "Alien Vs. Predator" as a "guilty pleasure" - a very accurate description in my book. I really shouldn't like this - it really shouldn't be any good - and I really should be bowing down in abject unworthiness at the altar of Directors Ridley Scott and James Cameron for the first two movies in the endlessly watchable "Alien" franchises.

But then I think - ah screw it - I'll watch the bleeding thing anyway. And lo and behold and whack me over the head with a spine-removing warrior from outer space - but “Alien vs. Predator” is a lot better than it had any chest-buster right to be...

Anyway - should you be game enough to want to own the individual disc rather than a multiple set - be aware that the 'US' edition on 20th Century Fox is REGION A LOCKED - so it will not play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are). Personally - I'd plumb for a UK Box Set offering instead.

"Alien vs. Predator" may be hammy and gooey and clammy - but these endless remakes are still a great night in with your favourite off-world slimeballs who just can’t wait for a good old entrails-spattered scrap in the ice...

5.0 out of 5 stars Top no brainer 21 Nov 2008
By Bob Salter TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
**********CONTAINS SPOILERS**********

I watched this the other night and expected to hate it. For someone who considers himself to be a serious film buff I am thoroughly ashamed of myself. I actually found myself enjoying it. Well anyone who is looking for more cerebral fare was on a no hoper from the start. But this film doesn't pretend to be something its not. We get Alien and predator two of the scariest screen creations ever battling it out together. Oh and they throw in a few human beings for a bit of fodder. The leading lady is like Bouadicea on steroids. What a woman. I am in love. Even the one surviving predator was well impressed and that must take some doing. The touching scene at the end where she is scarred on the face with the remains of her alien vanquished brings a tear of pride to the eye. So what do we get in this film. We get a few predators and a lot of Aliens. One particularly big Alien who is extra nasty and you throw all these in with the humans and let gladatorial combat commence. The title sort of promises this and it delivers on all fronts. Well what more do you really want. No, a work of art it aint, but for straight forward entertainment without having to engage brain it delivers nicely. I really liked it. Whoops, did I really say that?
