2.0 out of 5 stars Looks great, but forgettable characters and a weak script, 22 Aug 2010
This review is from: Alien vs Predator [DVD] (DVD)
The millions of dollars certainly show up on screen, and the visual design for Antarctica and the inside of the buried pyramid is all you'd expect from a big Hollywood sci-fi movie. It's just a pity they didn't spend a few of those dollars on beefing up the casting dept. and scriptwriting team. The unsurprising story and the "don't confuse the idiots in the audience" dialogue combined to produce predictable B-movie grade stuff. The female lead was far too Apple Pie wholesome and un-weathered to pass as a tough Antarctic guide who's the best there is in the world. I'm not a fanboy of either the Alien or Predator franchises, but Sigourney Weaver she is not. None of the characters is really interesting, unless you count the nervous Scottish scientist - but he's really a little too over the top to be believable. The film is a passable scary sci-fi/horror entertainment for 90 minutes, but nothing more than that.
