Alien VS Predator (2004)
Director: Paul W.S. Anderson
Main Stars: Sanaa Lathan, Lance Henriksen, Raoul Bova
Storyline: During a archaeological expedition in Antarctica uncovered a frozen terror which is long time battle between two species.
Review (Spoils): Archaeologists find a frozen pyramid in the Antarctica which once it is uncovered all hell breaks loose. They discover aliens which start to hunt down and kill of the team in the frozen land. But from outer space comes another alien race which are predators that hunt for skull trophies for their collection and they have the other aliens on their list.
This winter wonderland of terror is a lot of fun, but it is lacking on the blood and gore like the other series have given us. But the story line works and some of the special effects of the film are done very well and are beautiful. I personally do not understand all the hate for this film. This film works and fits the Alien series totally fine. Sure, some of the character dialogue can be a little painful but fuck its aliens! We get also more insight on the predator species and the collecting of skulls was a pretty cool idea. The tracking and hunting scenes are done well but the aliens will always be my favorite out of the two.
Rating: There was a ton of hype for this film and maybe that is what destroyed the reviews from others for this film. I personally enjoyed it and have seen it a few times. It fits well in the series even though it could have used more blood and gore, but the queen is beautiful and hell we it has Lance!
