I didn't like the first AVP movie, yet still couldn't hate it, like most people, to the core. There was not a minute where it was even half-way to genuine suspense. Literally everything was revealed out in the open in actually well lighted sets, eventually. Even the hieroglyphics tell what would happen before it happens. There was little action. Even more disappointing is the lack of blood and gore. I mean, the reason that we watch and enjoy these movies is because of that with these enjoyably cool and scary creatures. Having a film lacking that is like taking half of its dignity. And you would know that Paul W. S. Anderson is more an Alien fan based on the concept and having one Alien kill two out of three predators. Some the characters of AVP could've been great, but the rushing of the film gives you little time to grow a deeper attachment to them by personality and characterization and Anderson just eliminates them on their first round seemingly as quickly as he can.
