    Not as good as either franchise, but not bad either. 8 years 5 months ago

    If you're looking to make dumb but exciting action sf, you could do worse than go with writer-director Paul W. S. Anderson. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but Alien vs. Predator works for me. First, it LOOKS quite good, with nice locations, echoes of The Thing, and perfect shots of the two alien killers going at it. Sanaa Lathan is an engaging pseudo-Ripley that even a Predator can respect, and though there's always forgettable cannon fodder in these things, some of her team mates ARE memorable, in particular Lance Henriksen playing the man Bishop was modeled after, Ewen Bremner from Trainspotting, and heck, the "hero" Predator itself. And this is bonkers. Anderson throws everything at it including historical revisionism (everything gets contradicted by Prometheus anyway, or much of a connection to the Dark Horse comics of the same name, for that matter), someone wearing an Alien skull as a shield, and an Alien Queen. I wonder if they were still treating the Predator franchise as a "genre mash-up" even at this late point (14 years after P2), because this is Lara Croft meets Predator (meets Aliens). A bit of fun and excitement. 1 year 1 month ago

    Expected it to be terrible going in, but it's okay for what it's trying to be. It has a couple of fun concepts and the set design is nice.
    The writing did nothing for me however. Very predictable & bland in that aspect.
    Overall, meh? It could be worse.
