Movie Info

Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, Alien vs. Predator follows billionaire Charles Bishop Weyland (Lance Henriksen) and his team of drillers, scientists, and archaeologists, to an obscure pyramid site in Antarctica. Among the icy ruins, allegedly, lies the proof of an empire predating humankind. Once there, however, the group finds more than ancient sarcophaguses and hieroglyphics; rather, their discovery consists of dismembered human skeletons and fossilized remains of the alien creatures that appear to have violently burst out of their chests. Even more horrifying is the evidence suggesting that the aliens may still exist. Indeed, there are aliens below the pyramids, but an equal threat looms above: three Predators, all on the verge of manhood, are engaged in a gruesome rite of passage -- every hundred years, young Predators must travel to Earth and take on a hunting ritual in order to complete the transition to adulthood or die in the process. Before long, the humans find themselves battling for their own lives as the Predators and aliens continue their fight for superiority. The film also features Sanaa Lathan, Raoul Bova, Ewen Bremmer, Colin Salmon, and Agathe de la Boulaye.more

All Critics (144) | Top Critics (29)

The title alone betrays an entire Hollywood mindset of rehash, reheat, recombine. Re-please.

Top Critic

Lance Henriksen, Raoul Bouva and Ewen Bremner are tragically underused due to their characters being cliched and forgettable.

This spectacle-fueled Sci-Fi thriller is all bark and no bite.

un divertissement estival parmi tant d'autre qui n'a absolument rien de mythique n'est pas pour autant désagréable si on le prend pour ce qu'il est

Audience Reviews for AVP - Alien Vs. Predator

A spit in the face to both franchises. AVP: Alien vs. Predator does both famed-sci-fi-antagonists no favors as it's nothing but a senseless crossover and unnecessary addition. 1/5

Both 'Alien' and 'Predator' are classics with suspense and violence. This film doesn't even meet up to their standards. Aside from the most unlikely alliance, there are some good action moments.Featuring predictable scenarios and slightly obvious CGI, it easily loses its supposed realism. If you are a hardcore fan of 'Alien' or 'Predator', its best to give this a miss. If you are new with two of movie's greatest monsters, just stick with the originals.

Paul W.S. Mother Effing Anderson. Sick of the guy. He's the posterboy for rambunctiously stupid Hollywood movies that focus on "cool" action scenes and a completely disregarded plotline. Have you guys seen the Resident Evil movies? ...Freakin horrible. None of them have any merits of anything that is good about filmmaking other then the fact that it made it into theaters. Please Anderson... stop making movies. This is one of the worst movies to come out in this decade. Don't watch this garbage.
