Alien vs. Predator

2006-03-30 12:43

When satellites detect a mysterious "heat bloom" emanating from deep under Antarctica, billionaire industrialist Charles Bishop Weyland gathers an international team of archaeologists, scientists and security experts to investigate.

What they witness 2000 feet below the frozen surface at first excites, and then terrifies them. They discover a pyramid bearing a mixture of Aztec, Egyptian and Cambodian cultures. Inside the pyramid they find a matrix of chambers so technologically advanced that it becomes obvious that an extraterrestrial influence has been at work there for thousands of years. Then chamber walls reconfigure unexpectedly, trapping members of the team and cutting them off from their colleagues.

Moving from chamber to chamber, the horrific truth finally reveals itself: Predators have been keeping alive a captive Alien Queen who lays eggs at 100 year intervals. Young Predators warriors are tested by fighting the Alien offspring. The team stumbles into the middle of an incredible rite of passage - and a war between Aliens and Predators.

What the critics are saying:

"...answers every sci-fi fan's ultimate 'what if?', with enough enthusiasm to make up for its lack of finesse."
- Jamie Russell, BBCi Film

"AVP is a pretty movie to look at with its grandiose sets and top notch creature FX, but it's a lot like Anderson's previous works in that it's all facade and no foundation."
- Staci Layne Wilson,

"A surprisingly good night out. May not meet the expectations of die hard fans of either franchise - still action packed - and if you can overlook the acting - a fun film."
- Andrew Burden,
