It was actually quite good, and I'll tell you why no spoilers I promise. Could Predators be an establishment killer? But I am getting ahead of myself here. In essence, the films were about humans trying to screw each other over for power, with the titular enemy there to deliver the consequences of not working together. Then there's the gore factor. His character, Charles 'Bishop' Weyland, is the billionaire who according to 'Alien' mythology -- creates the Bishop androids seen in 'Aliens' and 'Alien 3,' which are modeled after his own image.
Before I took a chance on this film there was really only one question I wanted answered. When modern day people go to investigate this pyramid, they become the new hosts for the Aliens that they Predators are going to hunt. The commandos also have a female prisoner. The story of this film is bay far the weakest aspect of this derision of a movie. Arnold, on the other hand, is actually and thankfully given a relatively small amount of stupid one-liners, which are an idiotic byproduct of hard action movies that I've never really understood the necessity for.
Predator' - a project that took 14 astonishing years to bring to the big screen longer than 'Freddy vs. I think the whole sub-plot about the so called missing airmen isn't too important to the viewer but makes it possible for the commandos to be there. On the surface, Aliens versus Predator is a 3D action shooter of the old pre-Half Life school: Armed with a variety of weapons you doggedly, repeatedly move from point A to point B, killing anything in your way, riding on elevators, and flipping lots of switches. This movie unfortunately takes itself way too seriously. It's about a pyramid that is discovered on Earth in Antarctica.
Unfortunately, where Aliens in particular excelled was that it managed to give every character a third dimension. Survival suspense of the purest kind. Forget creativity or making something that people might enjoy. A great story and relentless action, all progressing the story along. It is one of my personal favorite movies.
Here, only Henriksen's character gets such effort. Fans of the original and followers of the franchise can be forgiven for being weary of this remake after all, I was , but believe me, Predators is the best in the series since the original. I really like the music and especially the spooky twisted jungle sounds that we hear when we see through the eyes of the predator. Once the human drama is set up, who cannot help but feel for the survivors as a marine's face is melted by Alien blood, or when a train full of commuters are torn to pieces by a Predator who doesn't fully understand what is going on around him? Maybe he didn't hit what he was aiming for, maybe he trod on a sharp rock, or maybe his Predator wife left him and he's not taking too well, but any way I don't care what's happened, so please stop screaming at me! Greg Lambert is a space for Qompat Application Management Systems. He's never been any good at three other vital elements of film-making: story, characters and direction.
One of the biggest things that got me though, and it may not annoy others, is the amount of Predator screeches and screams. High Quality: several blasts have directly existing, Excessive and Issue of Gliders and Americans who are chaotic in their node. By October 2003, production was underway, with sets in Prague being assembled. Overall I would give the film a 7 out of 10, it was above average for and action flick and screamed quality, despite a retentively low budget, and I definitely wouldn't mind going to see it again. Hell, the film even has the primary character cover himself in mud to dodge the Predator's warm vision.
Jason' - doesn't do much to change this. This in my humble opinion is probably the second best sci-fi movie of all time. Perhaps what makes the film have a such a raw, earthly quality is its relation to settings of man vs. Alien, on the other hand, went into remarkable detail about where its alien came from. We don't go to see movies about dueling alien species for deep themes and intricate character development, but a little sympathy would be nice. He was 'one of the crew' instead of a one-man wrecking machine like in so many of his other films; that was very nice to see. The 1000 word limit has stopped me from going on.
Some are a little cliche, but the main character played by Adrien Brody is actually more human and teeters on the edge of being a full blown anti- hero. I almost gave this film a miss, but I'm glad I didn't. Great, but wouldn't that mean it is basically submerged in the ocean? I would give this movie one star for it's weak story, weak script, poor acting and unashamed duplication of other films if it wasn't for a great performance from Laurence Fishburne which was sadly far too short, and again, his character was utterly wasted. I suspect a great many geeks and lame individuals inhabiting message boards of every corner of the internet will complain that this film spends too much time with the humans when the name of the film is 'Alien versus Predator' and they couldn't care about the humans, and another sect will whine about how shallow the film is to jump right to the big fight as soon as it can possibly set it up. A timeless classic, one of the best films of all time.
The entire concept of Predator is really clever and it certainly made me sit on the edge of my seat while watching it the first time. But believe me, this comment couldn't possibly ruin the film for you any more than Fox has. Anderson screen story , Dan O'Bannon screen story , Ronald Shusett screen story , Paul W. Luckily, a lack of coherent plot is not as much of a liability for Aliens versus Predator as it would be for almost any other game, because the history and motivation of each main character are understood implicitly, as they are simply part of the pop-culture landscape. Seriously, why on Earth didn't they just base the script upon the first comic book series? Both have different opinions about the best means to escape from the beings.
