... and kills off two of the three Predators within minutes of each othe,r
 1. WHATS THE POINT IN BRINGING THE ALIENS ANY EARLY ON? the all point is about timing, as Ridley Scott said about Alien ' a cadance ', meaning gradually let the moment unfold because the srrprise will be there to get you.  2. STORY. IT WAS NEVER MENT TO BE A BLOODFEST FROM START TO FINISH but its all about understanding the story first. Introducing the charaters so that you get to know them FIRST otherwise you won't care. Yes it is about Aliens and Predator but the human relation ships is what helps give it an identity.  3. These Predators are novices, their young and still learning about the hunt ( I assume) Their inexperience shows here obivousily, THEY ARE NOT EXPERENCE HUNTERS HENCE THE WHOLE POINT TO THEM GOING TO THE PYRAMID TO BECOME TRUE WARRIORS.  The reviewers simply don't understand the A/P world. I haven't seen it but   I WILL LOVE IT To many went in thinking ' Paul Anderson ' movie, THIS IS A NEW FRANCHISE, COMBINING THE TWO, its going to be different in ALL ways, I am totally biased as far as this movie goes.  I am looking forward to this, BRING IT ON I SAY.   ;D    P.S. Darkness, what did you think of the film, surely your not like the rest.

I think he's UK based so Im guessing he would have to wait 2 months too. Just a guess from the email address , .co.uk afterall.

I really wasn't disappointed at all. I thought it was a good fun popcorn movie. It had good action, but it was too much around the humans. And I liked the teamup with Alexa and Scar Predator.

"built out of pure greed and a reckless disregard for what the fans see these kinds of movies for in the first place"  I agree Fox really sold us out when they gave it a PG 13 rating

 Now im not saying I hated this movie, far from it but allot of stuuf that wasnt in it would have made it great.So im not incuraging anyone to not go see this but rather not to expect greatness or a sci fi classic.  So lets just pray that when this comes out in a few months on DVD they'll have allot of unseen fotage in it.I hope anyway.  7 out of 10

A LOT , of scenes were missing, In the trailer you see a pred on the ground surrounded by aliens, also it did not have the 1904 scene, which I think will turn out to be the "hadleys hope" special edition scence for AVP.

The queen looked realy good though as did the aliens i couldnt believe how much better the aliens looked and acted than the preds, well i guess thats what happens when you get a fuc$ing basketball player to player with no acting experience to play a major role as a pred,so dumb.   Sorry for all the bad points im making but they were so noticalbe a 4 year old would have the same opinion, infact i brought my 6 and 8 year old nephews and they made all the same arguments as i did.This movie is still fun to see but just didnt feel like an alien or predator movie.There was not one scene that was seemed scary or had any terror in it, but i will say that Sanaa portrayed the fear she felt exceptionaly well, to bad not many others did or could.

if you're a fan of alien or predator, you'll enjoy the movie.  you'll like at least some of it, that's for sure.  don't worry about the reviews.  this movie was made strictly for the fans, which is a good thing actually.

Saw the movie and i thought it was awesome!!  One thing to realize is that FOX cut out a lot of the movie.  Some stuff i saw in previews were not even in the movie, so there will be a director's cut.  If you hate the movie don't blame Paul Anderson blame FOX for cutting stuff out.  AVP WAS AWESOME!!!!
