In my opinion AVPR is definitely the better movie because it had gore, lots of action and carnage.
And I love the ending.

To be fair, AVP is bloodless.

So, I was ten and when AVPR released- The "blurb" enthused.
But I soon realized that, the "Unrated Edition" I received- a film unremarked upon until then.
I then realised this film, with these names- is bargain bin material.

Not that I ever thought it was great or anything but upon my recent viewing of AVPR it really occurred to me just how repugnant it is. It's so meanspirited and ugly.

AVP.

It sure is no masterpiece by any means but it did the one thing this crossover is all about better :

The aliens vs predator clashes.
That's what i wanted to see in an Alien vs Predator movie. And while AVP's big fight looks more  like two dudes in rubber costumes wrestling on the ground than two deadly combatans in mortal combat, it sure is better than any fight in the sequel. There they look like one dude in a rubber costum throwing empty, floppy rubber costumes around. 
I can forgive much in an crossover movie like Alien vs Predator. But screwing up the one thing it is all about is a no no. And in that part the first one delivers (slightly) more.

Well this thread was started on the day after release so back then I'm sure the AVPr hype was still there. Also, if I recall correctly the theatrical run was well lit. So everyone was able to make a basic judgement on the movie. Now with the awful home media transfer, you simply can't see shit.

I think I voted for AVPr because of how boring AVP was.

A lot of people were complaining about the darkness during the theatrical run.

I hear what you're sayin' there. I sometimes find myself wondering which is worse. Then I watch them again. For all the narrative faults and character issues of AVPR, it at least feels like the directors gave a damn. The creatures create bloody havoc, and that's exactly what I expect from them. And I find wolfs scenes in the woods and at the power plant to be much more entertaining than anything from the first AVP film. No friendly creatures either, which was a big issue for me with AVP.

The first film just felt so....baby-ish. Everything, all of it, was horrifyingly watered down. Call it Peter Benchley's AVP, and I wouldn't even know the difference. I was waiting for the landshark to appear.
