Like the AvP series,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: AVP: Alien vs. Predator / Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (Unrated Two-Pack) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
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.
