With that out of the way, what is there left to say? If you like Aliens and Predators or you just want to see the two duke it out, then go for it. Of course my advice would be to rent the movie first to judge for yourself whether or not it's worth buying. If you're buying the Blu-ray version, then you should know that both the Theatrical Version and Unrated Extended Version are on the same disc. But be warned that, other than two Commentary tracks (for the Theatrical Version only) and a Trivia Track, there are no extras on the disc. None. Zero. Nada. There's no behind-the-scenes footage whatsoever, which is disappointing. On the other hand, there's one Commentary in which Sanaa Lathan talks about "flying vaginas" so that's pretty interesting. Or completely creepy. You decide.
Anyway, that's all there is to this movie. If you've seen Paul W.S. Anderson's previous films, such as Mortal Kombat or Resident Evil or his post-AVP masterpiece known as Death Race, then you pretty much know what to expect from AVP. This is a movie that's all about plenty of mindless action that hopefully keeps your mind off of the weak story. But hey, there's nothing wrong with that. Every so often I like to sit back, relax, and watch a movie that doesn't try to make me care about anything other than how big an explosion is. Okay, I did care about Lance Henriksen. But how could I not? He's Lance frickin' Henriksen!
Also, the deaths on this version are presented with added CGI blood, which as absurd as it sounds, works sort of well, since it feels nearer to a Predator or Alien flick than its theatrical PG-13 version. It never gets too gory here, and the deaths are as anti-climactic as in the original cut. No fights are added (as the back-cover announces), just those added character scenes. Anyway, if you're a fan of the franchise like me, picking up this DVD with such a great presentation and those few added elements will make you view this film as a more decent effort. Avoid Aliens vs Predator: Requiem, which is insulting to most fans of the original films. This at least has great sets and and interesting story that could have been better explored with a more capable director.
