I wonder if people went into the movie not knowing the rating if they'd still have a problem with it?  From what I read in the book, it's not that the kind of stuff people wanted was taken out, it's just that the story progressed in a way that it never really dealt with any of it.  There just wasn't any time.

Galmorzu I agree that the movie is gonna be fun I read the book and looks like it.... but it's losing the power of being a Horror-Sci Fi movie to be a Pop-Corn Movie and that really hurts the fans that have been waiting  this movie for years...And the real problem is that Paul Anderson misled us... thats why I think everybody is kind of outraged... but we all are going to watch it anyways!!  Saludos!

El Demonio:  I know what you're saying.  I wish it was rated R as well, but while I'm a bit more reserved than I was before, I still think it can be pulled off well enough.  There's actually very little of people being attacked by either species in this movie, which means most of the violence is between aliens and predators, and that doesn't hold up as strictly as human violence does in the ratings.  And the things that I see a lot of people complaining about (ie, skinned bodies, skulls and spines torn out, etc) just don't have room in this story.  The flow and direction of the story doesn't leave room to put those things in, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, because it moves on quickly to the stuff between the aliens and predators fairly quickly.  But yeah, we're all going to see it anyway, and I think as long as people quit WANTING to be disappointed by one thing or another, they'll find themselves actually liking what we are given more than they'd expected.  And for the record, I don't think Paul misled us.  I just think Fox decided this was going to be set a particular rating, and what the movie ended up having just made that mark due to lax standards.

Yeah I'm expecting a movie that is fun and can stand up to repeat viewings but by no means a darling  of the critics. I used to work as a journo and film critic and I came to the conclusion those guys are mostly bitter, old, frustrated wannabes who hate most of everything, a bit like the kind of hardcore internet geeks at AICN. Since I was still youngish at the time I decided to stop writing about other people's films and get into it myself. Doing is much more fun than hating.  My taste in films is extremely varied and I've always been very forgiving of films that other people didn't take to, (except T3, I hated T3.)  I'm expecting a cult film with a passionate but none too large group of devoted followers. Something along the lines of Ford Fairlane or Last Action Hero but with Aliens and Predators beating on each other. If it rises above my expectations, all the better.  Sorry I don't have AIM or anything. I'm a bit techfeeble, I post here or at Corona Terminator boards

Ah, Last Action Hero.  I know it's considered awful, but I get such a kick out of watching that movie.     :)    I don't know, I just have an easy time enjoying a movie even while knowing it's not a really good movie.  I hated House of the Dead with a passion, though.  One of the very few movies I could sit through.  I didn't mind T3, but I found that I can't really watch it again like I can with other movies.  The same with Jurassic Park III.  I had fun seeing it in the theater, and have it on DVD, but I just can't make myself watch it again.  I don't really hate either of these, they're just not as fun as others are.  lol, and I know I'll be burned at the stake for this, but I consider it such a guilty pleasure on a Saturday night with friends.     ;D

Wow, it's getting late.  I forgot to type a whole section of a sentence!  I meant to say, I know I'll be burned at the stake for this, but I even consider Freddy vs. Jason a guilty pleasure to watch on a Saturday night with friends.  Almost sounded bad there     ???

look rite.. my view?  PG13 is an insult unless its a childrens film which depicts mild violence.. such as peter pan? k wateva, lame fighting scenes which provoke children to do the same shit.. thats pg13...  the master piece of aliens.. and the predtor should not be dis-respected so much with a pg13 rating in a desperate hope to bring families into the cinema.. i say.. M 15+ and let the little f**kers at home wait to see this.. or let them sneak into it.. simple, their not old enough to appriciate the horror of these two creatures.  R rating? are you people stupid? R ratings dont exist any more unless your looking at kill bill or a porn flick..  kill bill was given its R rating.. i duno why? 200+ people dying in a bloody aweful way.. but when their are fictional charectors killing say 5-10 people, that doesnt deserve an R-Rating.. thinking realisticly and say either M or MA  M15 or MA18+  MA18+ being same as R rated but i think the R rating brings with it an enforced attitude - 'you will not watch this if you are under 18!'  M is the perfect rating.. 15+, because anyone over the age of 13,14 is able to appriciate these movies and their into that horror crap and quickly grab ur biatch cause shes scared shit.. or sit down with ur nerd friends and watch another fake show thats just cool..  M15+ .. whos with me?

This movie is going to be stupid people im going to see it but i know now its really going to be stupid with out the gore and realism,everything is going to look fake, i was just watching the predator on DVD and alien resurection,and my god they where both very very violent movies by far,far from a pg-13 rating,and the reason why these movies where far from a pg-13 rating was because the dir made a REAL f**king alien and predator movie,people you need to wake up! its not going to be the same if its pg-13,what you are going to see is 2 fake aliens and predators slapping each other in a fight when what they should be really doing is ripping each other apart, this going to be my last post i will make about this pg-13 shit, you will not see any chestbusters that look realistic with the blood flying everywhere and gore,you willl not see predators skinning or cutting off any body part in this film,you might see one scene where they do that,but it will not have any blood or gore in the scene,and it will make it look very very very very fake,,the movie will not be realistic ,it will be more of trying to hold make from the real gritty darkness of what these creatures are really from and who they really are,hahahah my god there putting a predator that skins people alive and rips out the peoples skull and spine and keeps it as a trophy,i dont know why the predator have huge blades in this film,it not like they can really use it,because tust me if a predator uses thoses blade on anyone,BLOOD GUTTS will be flying everywhere!,but if the predators does use it,lol its going to look fake people you cant make a movie like AVP and have it pg-13,and needs to be a FULL ON HEAVY DUTY R rating,the characters are plan Violent ,scary dark creatures from hell,these creatures where made by satan himself lol,just the alien movies alone where all very viloent,you would think that now that your gong to put the predator and aliens in the same picture,you would think that the violence whould sky rocket! but no lololololol they going to make this movie lol a rated pg-13 ,what a FU__KING joke,thank you paul anderson for F---king up another film again! all i know if this movie has been pussy wipped,im going to see this movie just to see how much they F___ked it all up so i can cry and laugh it, i waited 10 years for this movie,to find out its pg-13 for kids,i bet the kids are real happy now that the new super heroes are called predator and alien,these are not super heroes for kids to cheer at.One last thing to bring some reality to you pg-13 lovers which are 17% of the whole population, H.R gigers work is for adults only,to look at and to understand,not for kids to play with, and what they have done right here right now has taken ART and put it in the childrens hands,so they take it home and play with it,AVP is a peace of art,not for 13 year olds,or any kids out there.Anything else pg-13 lovers out there? i can still make as much money if it was R.,but hey,PAUL anderson is good at that,making stupid movie like resident but it still made alot of money,but who care right?

Well did anyone seen I Robot I know I'm going off the subject, but trying to prove a point about now a days  PG 13 movies.  
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
 Well I watch pretty much PG 13 movies and I Robot had some violence and some course language not the Fbomb over and over like the word shit which Will Smith said much in the movie.  Also there was two nude scenes one with Will Smith and another with the girl both taken a shower, but not together at different times in the movie.  It didn't show much only a side view and the other shower part you see her, but covered with steam.  Also there was some blood a part where Will Smith spits out a bunch of blood from his mouth. Spoiler done   What I'm trying to say is like some movies get a R rating moslty for the language in every other line almost a person would say the Fbomb if you know what I mean.  I'm watching Predator on tv now and still has all the blood and gore they show, but the only thing they cut is the language part.  Also it was rated MA s when it came on at 12 on FX if anyone lives in US eastern time right now.  Like Regicial Manic said about JP3 and the first 2 movies which I saw all of them did have gore in it, but not the language thats why they got the PG 13.  Probably why AVP got a PG 13 rating there isn't much course language.  Please people don't start judging the movie because Oh no it PG 13 and it going to suck hello how do you know its going to suck if you didn't even seen the movie yet.  See the movie first then judge ok.  I'm waiting for a long time to and can't wait till Aug. 13.

If this =damn thing is indeed pg 13 its going to be like when you watch any pred or alien move on a normal tv network, CUT TO HELL, no coarse language, no intence violence, and no graphic guts or blood, I watched Pred 1 a few weeks ago, and the part were billy finds the bodies upside down with no skin was cut right out, so we saw him pull the branches away and then we just get his expression, another cut part was when the pred kills the dude with the glasses, now when they find the chick and go looking for the guy, instead of finding his guts in a pile on the ground what they did was NOT show them but just arnies and the other dudes face.So you see this is the kinda shit were going to see in this movie if its pg 13.Im still waiting for the site to say so but if it turns out to be pg 13, well you can kiss these monsters good bye, sure they may make a sequel but it will be turned into this week asssuperhero flick that is made only to suit the faceless majoraty of younger people out there just to make an extra buck instead of staying true to the series wich is so wrong.  Like SENTINEL said both these movie monsters by themselves cause enough death and violence for an easy r rating, youd think putting both together in 1 movie would be a violence over load that no matter what would get the R sertificate, but its not l;ooking that way, f**k its looking like were going to have a avp saturday morning kids cartoon for facks sake.   >:D  .Well right know im expecting this movie to noe be what Ive waited 4 for 12 years of my life but instread a cheesy watered down version of itself that was only made to make a quick buck, now if IM wrong( i pray im wrong ) and this movie turns out to be what we;ve all been waiting for then good for us, but as it stands right now with all this PG 13 shit talk, this is going to be far from what we've all been waiting for.So lets kepp an open mind until we get the FINAL and 100% truth about the rating, but if we find out its realy pg 13 then we can realy start to worry and be mad.

Binger of death you make good comments. We have been bamboozled. The 2 greatest franchises of all time in sci-fi horror history have been bought together in a PG-13 brawl??????? This isn't a tea cup party this is alien vs predator people. The graphic violence,gore and mayhem went down the  drain. Now we have a PG-13 slap box brawl. Don't get me wrong the movie looks grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat and I love it. But PG-13 come on.

G-Dog, Jose and Variable ( and more no doubt) are ALL correct with a capital C - O - R - R - E - C -T!!!  the movie is what were watching not ratings but THE MOVIE !  To many movies get too over rated with ' R ' because of its meaning of what things will deliver,violence, swearing, gore content.  I just want this movie to succeed MOST importantly and to prove some SITES wrong ( namily the dumb - bitch - ass site AICN)
