The original alien came at a time when all previous space movies featured friendly aliens, more accessable aliens and overall a much cleaner, neater version of space travel. Alien was a gritty, slow-paced terror of a movie set in deep space. The creature was seldom seen for more than a few seconds, and practically no one was spared its violent killing spree.
The original Predator was a campy but suspenseful action film, that featured some great effects and moments of true intensity. Like alien, it was gritty and violent.
Along comes Paul Anderson, fusing these two franchises together and successfully pissing on them at the same time.
ALIEN VS. PREDATOR IS AN INSULT.
An insult to FOX, an insult to the fans and more so, an insult to anyone involved in the previous movies of these two franchises.
........... there is not ONE moment of inspired suspense in this movie. ALL the rules of previous movies in these franchises have been COMPLETELY dissavowed and to top it all off, the violence and effects are so sugar coated and held back you might think your watching a DISNEY movie, what with all the flashy set pieces and FAKE FAKE FAKE looking aliens and predators.
Honestly, I'm not even gonna go into plot, cause there is none and no excuses should be made in hopes of piecing together holes the size of the one featured in this movie... which btw, is never explained.
Just avoid this trash, its worse than FREDDY Vs. JASON. The acting STINKS, the writing is PUTRID, and the direction could give the blair witch project a run for its money.
Heed these words, when two franchises duke it out to the death, they both die, no matter what.
