Besides this the first AVP looks good, the visuals in Paul Anderson's films have always been great, whether you are a fan of his work is another story ;)
In either movie dont expect top notch performances from the human cast, neither movie is great on that front but I dont think you are watching these movies for oscar worthy performances anyhow.
The second movie AvP Requiem, I also knew what I was getting and generally was not surprised by what I saw. The only thing that did surprise me was how DARK this movie was from a lighting standpoint. I did not remember it being like that when I saw the dvd version. As other reviewers have said, it did diminish the movie enjoyment since it was very hard to see in some scenes what was going on. As much as I like ambiance, the Strause Bros either dropped the ball on this one or the picture transfer was gosh awful. I could deal with the story but the picture totally killed the fun out of this movie.
Overall I've always enjoyed these movies but Skip the blu-ray verson.
I love movies and appreciate great works of art in film. I also am not above loving a good popcorn flick! Movies are here for our enjoyment, but unfortunately, some people are so pompous they forget what it's all about! ....... entertainment! I'm not knocking world class films like Gone With The Wind, Citizen Kane, The Godfather etc..etc., but all films don't have to be so profound......do they?
This gimmick is no different than what was done in the 40's when classic films like 'Frankenstein' and 'The Bride Of Frankenstein' had sequels like 'Frankenstein meets the Wolfman'! Although it's not a classic, it's still a memorable and fun movie.
These films don't destroy what was great about the classics, they actually pay great respect...a homage if you will to the originals. If you don't like these films....fine, but for me I have to admit I enjoy them ...if done right. The unrated versions are the best versions I've seen and the first film edges out the sequel, mostly because you can see all the action!
I did not have the same problem some reviewers have stated about everything being in the dark(to be fair I do have a huge screen, it might make a difference??). Some scenes are dark, but I only had two scenes where I couldn't tell who was kicking who's butt! It only lasted for a few seconds each time. It could have been brighter, but it wasn't too distracting. Grab some popcorn and some beers and watch these Sci-Fi Battle Royals!

Though AVP 2 could have been much better (the directors are a little too enthusiastic about being fans) still an entertaining edition to both franchises.Published 4 months ago by RavenSpeak
