Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (AVP 2) Reviews

January 18, 2008
Scriptwriter Shane Salerno's dialogue is unspeakable, the visceral horror all too familiar, and the ideas distinctly second-hand.

The door is left open for another sequel; if someone would kindly shut it and board it up, that would be much appreciated.

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.

Ho, ho, ho -- the joke's on anyone who pays to see this.

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.

The action is rendered with such disconcertingly low light levels -- and of course there is heavy rain for the climatic sequences -- that it can be a strain to simply see what is occurring on-screen. Then again, maybe that's for the best.

So lacking in imagination is this movie that the Brothers Strause and writer Shane Salerno keep scrambling back to the original movie for inspiration.

That the first of many rote 'chest-burster' shots occurs 15 seconds into the movie is but one indication of the latest instalment's poverty of fresh shocks and rank air of desperation.

The problems with the movie are twofold and easy to spot: the acting stinks and you can't understand what's going on.
