Aliens vs Predator: Requiem

What it's about:

The follow-up to the worldwide hit Alien vs. Predator, the iconic monsters from two of the scariest film franchises ever, wage their most brutal battle yet in an unsuspecting Colorado town.

What the critics say:

"A vile, joyless, murky, moronic, amateurish, contemptuous, numbing, unintentionally hilarious, and thoroughly diseased motion picture... a middle-finger to the paying crowd."
Brian Orndorf, eFilmCritic.com

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

"So lacking in imagination is this movie that the Brothers Strause and writer Shane Salerno keep scrambling back to the original movie for inspiration."
Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter

"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."

Joe Leydon, Variety

"After Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem it would be best to simply retire both these by-now over-familiar movie monsters..."
James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page

"The result is a complete hash."
Alex Markerson, E! Online

I'm so curious I have to say that after reading these really horrible reviews of the movie, I have to see it, just to see for myself, just how bad it is. I saw the first AvP movie and didn't think too much of it. How much worse can this one be?

slashfest Usually even horror movies spare mutilating and killing children ... not so with AvP 2. This attempt is a murderous decimation of all or most of the human cast throughout the movie ... many a time in quite vile manner. If you thought pregnant women were immune then hold your breath until about near the end and dont have too much for lunch while you're watching.

Come on, its just mindless entertainment Predator rocks as hard as Alien rocks. I loved AvP. Its extremely cool to see how the two ultimate out of this world movie baddies do against each other. Its just for laughs and really not to be taken seriously, much like Freddie vs Jason. critics never ever like horror action movies, they're all a bunch of jaded hacks who like cinema art noveau movies because they're so danm cultured. BORING! AvP is rock and roll in movie form!

As I have said As I have said before to each his own. This movie is pure action and horror, for those of us who like this sort of think, besides it is refreshing for a change to see that we can not beat them all and are canon fodder for a change. It is what it is..... Bloody LOL....
