film - Alien vs. Predator Requiem

Alien vs. Predator Requiem 1.5/5

It's a shame that they didn't intend to continue on the Aliens franchise with some really good writing.

Sure,the previews looked good and I gave it a chance, but the film is geared towards teenage boys more so than real sci-fi fans.

Here's one male fantasy come true - hottie blond classmate dumps badass boyfriend for loser goodguy. Sure, that happens all the time in real life, right?

Despite having tons of super technology, the Predators don't seem to have anything that prevents bad guys - Aliens - from sneaking up on them.

There's little sense of mystery here. It's mostly all predictable action. Some characters are developed a bit and we're meant to be totally shocked when they are killed off. There's one unintentially hilarious moment when the hottie blond gets nailed. The audience was laughing and cheering a bit.

We don't see enough scenes with the Aliens showing their entire bodies, so unless you have seen the previous films, you don't get a good view of what they look like. And boy, do they go from hatchling to adult awfully quickly!

If you loved Transformers, you may love this film.
