TWO BATTLES YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS! A GUILTY PLEASURE!
, June 15, 2008
This review is from: Alien vs. Predator / Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (Unrated Two-Pack) (DVD)
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!
