Having recently watched AVP Requiem on Bluray I ended up really disappointed with this version. Being a fan of the first film (I'm among the few probably) I highly enjoyed the 2nd one in that it really pays homage to the old Aliens and Predator films, lots of violence, much better creature FX than the first AVP film and just a truer representation of the Aliens and Predators really makes this a fun film to sit through, BUT something happened with the Blu-ray release of this film. First the Unrated edition on Blu-ray is missing footage that the Unrated regular DVD has and 2nd, the movie is insanely dark. Having seen this at the theater when it was released I know for a fact that the movie was NOT this dark, something must have happened in the transfer process but unless this movie is watched in total darkness its almost impossible to see A LOT of the film, even the HD trailer on the SAME DISC is brighter, clearer and easier to see. I emailed FOX about these problems and I got a simple reply in that "We are looking into this issue but do not have a solution yet" So obviously there is a problem and I hope the institute an exchange.

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.

I knew what I was getting into when I purchased this set. I saw the original AvP and thought it was not academy award winning great but a good popcorn flick on Saturday night and it did not disappoint. I thought the story had merit as a standalone product sans the Comic Lore. Paul W.S. Anderson did a good job moving the story along and the ending was good.

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.

I guess I was one of the few people who enjoyed these great Sc-Fi films. These are great films for what they are and this great set from Twentieth Century fox is awesome. It in cludes BOTH Alien Vs Predator and Aliens Vs. Predator-Requiem in a nice collector's box to house them in!!! The transfers are great,but they should be, it's Blu-Ray baby!!!Note,it says Unrated two pack on the box which is most true, but the the original Theatrical/Rated cuts for BOTH films are also included along with the Unrated versions so there are actually 2 versions of each film(Theatrical/Rated and Unrated),very awesome!!! The fisrt film is a little short on extras but the second one is loaded,including a digital copy of AVP-R for your computer/Ipod(Digital Copy for AVP-R is in on it's own disc and has a code that expires on april,14,2009 just to lt you know) And I got this for less than the price of one,just $26.95 brand spanking new on sale right here at Amazon.com!!!,I buy all my Blu Ray's here,much better than the retail stores prices(including Best Buy and Circuit City by the way)What a great deal!!! Recommended!!! Two thumbs up!!! A+

Even on my 60" its hard to see a lot of scenes even when my lights are all out and the TV is set for cinema. Really had to bring up the brightness to see what was going on. I didn't have a problem with the sound though! Over emphasized when playing them in 5.1 mode and my sound set at half its max level, for the 1st time ever I had my neighbor (apt.) knock on my door and ask me to turn it down! And he's very Hard of Hearing!
Overall I've always enjoyed these movies but Skip the blu-ray verson.

I know that purist are not fond of what's been going on with their beloved Alien and Predator franchises, but truth be told these film aren't bad. All things considered they have come up with a story that works to bring the two classic creatures together to do battle in this fun action flick and it's sequel!

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!

I don't understand why so many people complain about Requiem being too dark, it was just fine. For those of you who are complaining get yourself a PS3 and a good Panasonic Plasma and maybe a checkup from your doctor.

on the back of the individual case for AVP it says its the PG-13 rated 101 minute theatrical version...THAT IS JUST A MISPRINT...once you put the disk in it gives you the option for both theatrical or 108 minute unrated version...so if you bought it and freaked out like I did about thinking the item was incorrect..dont worry about it its fine.

i wont review each film because if your looking at this page you already know alot about the movies...

The films look and sound awesome on blu ray...AVP-R is a little too dark but its not as bad as some reviewers are making it sound..

Mine only cost about 13 bucks, a great deal for a blu ray 2 pack...and theres other good deals too from the smaller sellers on this page....hope all this helped

I don't know where you stand, but I want as much AvP as I can get. I enjoyed every Predator and Alien flick and loved most of them then they brought the two great franchises together. Watching AvP in the local theater, you would have thought you were at a WWE match. It was a blast! My only regret is that there aren't more. I think viewers especially professional reviewers get stuck into analyzing movies too deeply and not treating them like a ride.

It's hard to tell a great story, but sometimes you have great characters and it's enough. The AvP franchise has solid characters in the Aliens and Predators and sometimes their food/prey (humans) can be good. But for the experience of great alien on alien action, there's no substitute for these movies.

I tend to get most of my movies on regular DVD and save the added expense of Blu-ray for high action movies - which obviously is what these are. But after reading the reviews - - ALWAYS read the reviews, even if you've seen the movie before - - anyway, after reading the reviews, I decided to opt for regular DVD. Requiem was perfectly easy to watch - none of the darkness issues as reported from the blu buyers . . . so don't pass on the movie, just pass on the blu

Can't compare to the original movie in which you could see the action. This mess was shot mostly in the dark so you can't see anything much. All you get is a soundtrack with everyone yelling at one another. My guess is that it takes less talent and money to make a dark movie.

I exchanged my first DVD for a replacement, which was just as bad as the first one.....so I guess I didn't get a defective disk, the movie is just too dark to see. I guess the producer wanted to leave the action to your imagination????
