Not what it should have been

I imagine from a filmakers pov there is a fine line between giving the fans what their screaming for and making something that will work beyond the comics that started it. What we have here are two films which try to work but the failures are all too obvious and they do stand out.. you dont have to be a sci fi nerd either. The first one has the wonderful setting of isolation (like The Thing) with the added enclosure of the pyramid which locks our character in. Later the plot unravels as the Predator race means to breed the Xeno in order to test Predator youngsters...to prove themselves a worthy warrior by killing a Xeno. Well the Xenos arent willing to just take it and they do put up a fight with the remaining human character battling to not only find a way out but avoid getting prego'd and/or speared in the process. Lance Henricksen reprises his role as Bishop Weyland. The time line feels like it could be a few hundred years off from our first meet with the other human version of Bishop in Alien 3 which makes little sense. The flaws are the FX and the fact they used the same clunky alien suits from Alien Resurrection. CGI is very poor too. The acting is okay with some likeable characters which sadly get offed a little too early, feels more like a bodycound movie than a character driven film which I think was a mistake...I want to care about the characters. The sequel picks up directly after the first, landing us back on earth in burbs with a new set of characters to off. The aliens are almost identical to the suits used in Aliens thankfully and the Predalien which was a featured crossbreed in the AVP PC games and comics...is interesting. The acting is terrible feeling very wooden and emotionless. Again feeling like another bodycount movie. The films are not brilliant, they simply ignore the settings of the games and the comics that proceeded it which is a little silly. There is some dumb fun here but its very minimal most of the time your sat there bored feeling like you have seen it done better in the previous films of both franchise...because you have.

the premise is good,isnt it? 2 of movie histories best ever monsters, fighting each other.well,look at your expectations,and prepare for massive disappointment. both films are dreadful. poor script,poor photography (the 2nd film is so dark, you really cant see much of the action). save your money. heres hoping hollywood does a reboot,and gets some decent people to make them.

The avp-requiem blu-ray in this boxset is the basic edition. Was gutted when i watched it! Not sure if the single edition of it is unrated.

I've seen this in the shops and it's showing the run time of 89 minutes for AVP 2 where as the unedited version runs at 96 minutes
