What happened to the story..........(Contains spoilers),
This review is from: Alien Vs Predator (2 Disc Extreme Edition)  [DVD] (DVD)This could and should have been a fantastic movie but sadly it wasn't.
I was particularly unimpressed with the so called 'extended edition' of the movie - the extension came in at 1 minute and 20 seconds and despite watching both versions I can't see where the additional bits came in. If you are only after the extended movie, go for the single disc edition.
As regards the movies itself, they simply tried to put too much into too short a movie and the storyline suffered [needed at least 15 more minutes to avoid the feeling of being rushed]. The characters were useless; if the black girl (So forgettable I can't remember the name of her character) was supposed to pick up where Sigourney, Arnie or even Danny Glover left off, they made a BIG casting or writing mistake, the Scottish scientist was so lame we don't even feel sympathy for his boys when he gets a face hugger and the Itallian acheologist was surely only there to rattle off the background in the middle of the film after translating a whole room of hieroglyphs in 30 seconds (Even Stargates Daniel Jackson says ermmmmmmm beforehand).
Story was lame, the alien queen can dig gerself out of 2Km of ice in seconds but can't quite reach our herione behind a couple of sticks. The best bit was the look of suprise on the Predators face when he sees the queen.
However the special effects were great the predators particularly but that simply isn't special enough any more to rescue a bad film.
It may just have been me but the whole thing seemed like an extended trailer for AvP2.
