    Harmless fun...

    OK, so this movie does not come close to either of the originals in terms of storyline or suspense. But then you weren't expecting an award winning classic, were you? AvP is a commercial ploy to buy into the success of the original franchises, and if you watch it as a prequel to those movies then you may well be disappointed. However, if watched as a completely separate entity, it's fun, harmless and quite good. The plot doesn't really gel with either of the previous movies (especially the Alien set), but it does provide us with a somewhat interesting theory on the origins of both species (copied from numerous Sci-Fi authors, of course). So if you like lots of bang for your buck, good special effects, and are willing to suspend logic for a little while then you'll probably like this. If you're looking for a serious prequel to the Alien/Predator movies, then think again.

    Moooooo!!!

    A marriage between 20th Century Fox's two most well known sci-fi characters (the invincible predator and scary xenomorphs) was quite truly inevitable. I say inevitable because of the huge amounts profit that were waiting to be made was too enticing for any production company to ignore. And that is precisely what this is - a cash cow. It fulfills all the required criteria - PG13 age restriction (They went as far to cut short the famous Predator slogan - "You are one ugly motherf*****!") so kiddies can watch (strange, since all the alien and predator movies were at least no under 16s), extreme amounts of advertising and hype as well as an ending which confirms there WILL be a sequel. Moo. [clears throat], Excuse me. It's also quite easy to realise that neither Ridley Scott (Alien) nor Stephen Hopkins (Predator) but Paul Anderson - who directed Resident Evil and Event Horizon (both cool movies) - was in charge of the film. Why would neither of them direct it? A further quirk is caused by the character Bishop. He's an android in the first three Alien movies; the last part of Alien 3 it's discovered that he was also a living human being. Correct? Then how the heck can he be alive in both the present and the distant future? Major plot hole. Semi-convincing plot, average CGI, a good soundtrack and pretty standard acting leaves you with a lukewarm movie. So if you're an Alien or Predator enthusiast, I'd advise you to stay away. But if you're a collector of commercial guppies, I say sure, why not?
