20th Century Fox's genre output from 2004-2010 is its own special brand of trash, and "Aliens vs Predator - Requiem" is their "Cannibal Holocaust." The glee with which Brothers Strause have assembled this nihilistic meat grinder to churn up children, the homeless, and pregnant women makes me half-tempted to quote Ian Holm in "Alien": "I admire its purity...unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality."
Terrible excuse for a film I thought, but the entire idea of Aliens vs Predator was to begin with in my eyes. With that in mind, I still had immense fun watching this, as it had a great old school horror vibe, and it had great physical effects, with lots of good quality horror gore to boot. I went in not expecting much, I got it and I had fun.
It's movies like this that make me wish for a no-star rating. That, or I'll settle for big red button which when pushed will cause a random person somewhere in the world to punch the directors smack in the face.
Worst of both franchises and single handed killed off this team-up saga. What idiot decided that one should combine the monsters with a stupid teenagers? All the human characters behave like brain dead morons and the story makes no sense. A few good CGI effects I guess, but the sub-title "Requiem" fit perfectly with this chapter and tells exactly where this saga ended up.
You don't understand. This film's badness insulted me. The writers should be eviscerated. I have seen plenty of bad films, but there are shot-on-video, $1000 budgeted feature length films better than this. $40,000,000 means nothing. I did not think that something with this much money behind it could sink so low, but it does, and if it's not in my bottom 10, then it hasn't escaped the bottom 20. Why did I watch this?
Ive only seen 5min, 5min is all it took, to be honest maybe a bit more. From when father and son get facepalmed by alien spiders, to the part where a poor hobo gets yet again like all the begginings of Alien, get facepalmed also by an alien spider. Turned of the movie, and started reading the comic.
do dumb and so pointless. It tries to mooch off it's predecessors by putting in each of the ingredients including the slimy creatures and the gore with it's own twist of suburban teenage bull manure,while forgetting one vital thing: a plot
