AVP: Alien vs. Predator (2004)


After a satellite locates a huge heat blum under an Antarctic ice shelf, the head of Weland Industries dispatches a team of scientists and engineers to find out what is under the ice. Unfortunately, while exploring a hidden ancient temple the team activates a mechanism that triggers the pyramid into turning into a giant maze. Now they must fight for their lives while being caught up in a million-year battle between the Xenomorphs (Alien) and the Predators (Predator). Though I love the imagination of combining the two movies I didn’t really care for any of the action. It felt very stale and over stylized when it should have been set on establishing a mood. With that said, it was nice to see some practical effects used instead of all CGI.
