Now that I own the unrated cut on bluray and can actually see things other than darkness, there are several things I like.
I like the opening onboard the ship. I like the predalien, the fight through the hospital, and the fight at the power plant. I especially enjoyed the moment where the deputy saw and ran from wolf in the woods. It felt like the truest Predator scene since P2. I like most of it really. If you take it one scene at a time, there was really a lot more to see and experience than people think. The cast wasn't very good, and the human elements weren't grand, but it felt far more mature and scary than AVP1.
Even though the characters were so poorly written, I sometimes wonder if AVPR would've been better received had it taken place in a more interesting location like AVP1?
I still want to see AVP3. Hell, I want to see alot of AVP movies. I'd love to see the company venture deep to the bottom and see the queens corpse, like the fallen kingdom opening, or see a film set on a cruiser or a distant colony. There is a lot of things to build upon with AVP, but I worry that Shane and his antics might've cost us that chance.
