Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (AVP 2) (2007)



Average Rating: 3.1/10

The increased gore and violence over the first Alien vs. Predator can't excuse Requiem's disorientating editing, excessively murky lighting, and lack of new ideas.

Movie Info

Visual effects specialists Greg and Colin Strause both make their feature directorial debut with this no-holds-barred monster mash that attempts to set itself apart from the 2004 Paul W.S. Anderson original by serving as a straight-up sci-fi horror scarefest. The aliens (and a predator) have landed on planet Earth, and small-town America is about to become the scene of an epic interstellar showdown. As these two breeds of cosmic killers clash in the small-town streets Gunnison, CO, the locals

Scriptwriter Shane Salerno's dialogue is unspeakable, the visceral horror all too familiar, and the ideas distinctly second-hand.

Chopped down to 40 minutes, this could be a wickedly cool short; as is, it's a passable slasher that's still nowhere near the interspecies smackdown we geeks have long imagined.

Occasionally, the filmmakers reveal a cheeky willingness to upend genre conventions, particularly when bending the rules regarding who lives and who dies in this sort of pic.

It may not be classic sci-fi like the original Alien, which it has in its DNA, but it's a perfectly respectable next step in the series.

If this is what the future holds for both franchises, then today's youngsters are welcome to it.

Aliens VS Predator - Requiem is the second film in the over hyped and under performing crossover series, which brings nothing new to the table while tarnishing the franchises' original films.

Well, it's official: the Road to Hell is pretty much paved over ... the Strause Brothers ... expressed their [good] intention to return to the dark, scary tone of 1979's Alien, yet Requiem is just about as bad as its 2004 predecessor.

July 9, 2008 Full Review Source: ESplatter

Too underlit to qualify as splatter, too bloodless to qualify as fun, too unaware of its own idiocy to be enjoyed Grindhouse-style, AvP:R is a real education in the finer stratifications of badness.

Un spectacle insipide, ennuyant à mourir et de très mauvais goût

I'm left wondering why I felt like I was watching two different movies that never quite came together as a parallel arc beyond the clunky "They're all fighting personal wars" motif...

Aliens vs. Predator - Requiem is literally shrouded in darkness, and the only explicable reason for this pitch-black visual schema is that the filmmakers understood it was better if no one could see the **** they were shooting.

With a spike in the gore quotient, hardcore fans left baying for Paul WS Anderson's blood after the first AVP may be happy. Those interested in anything more than a barely comprehensible bitch-slap between two ill-treated icons should take a rain-check.

At best the movie's an unpretentious pile-up of B-movie clichés, but why "Requiem"? Time to give it a rest now.

The world's most illogical and boring action-horror grudge-match between two dull trademarked franchise monsters is back on.

This feature directing debut from former visual effects men Colin and Greg is enjoyable enough in rudimentary tension/splatter/scrap terms, but it still doesn't live up to its heritage.

Audience Reviews for Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (AVP 2)

Just when you thought the worst couldn't get any more worse, there's AVP:R (Alien vs. Predator: Requiem) The Strause Bros. terribly portray the already-damaged-franchises with an even more ridiculous script, forgettable story, and not to mention the darkness (literally dark) as there is no significant lighting. 0.5/5

A sequel to a weak spin-off. Although it's far more gruesome than the first 'AVP', it lacks reason behind it like the originals. Featuring a new breed of alien, which looks like a complete mess, its difficult to actually see it due to the very dark scenes. Again, it has very predictable scenarios. Like the first 'Alien Vs Predator', this is definetely worth a miss.

Well shock horror enough instalment and i think they have milked this franchise far too much! Its enjoyable enough to a point but when there is no new story then someone should say 'loook shall we actually make another' quite frankly if you've any and i mean any of the previous AVP/predators or even alien then im pretty sure you can get the jist of this movie pretty quickly!
