The only cure for the sheer panic that this film burned into my brain (and kept there for literally a decade after) was to watch the sequels, which are god-awful and should only be used to recover from this behemoth and to remind you that it's not real.
Like an insect that lives only within a Kafka story, you must confront this creature on its own terms.
I like to imagine the original pitch meeting for the movie Cube, in some big fat cat Toronto producer's office, André Bijelic's uncle and Vincent natal in an ill-fitting suit acting as his nephews agent (this is pure satirical speculation on my part), talking to David "Hammerhead" Schmitz, one of Toronto's biggest producers and taste makers, the guy who runs interference for Cronenberg when he's in town. Uncles Bjielic "It's like the Matrix, but for Canada, with a unique twist of post-9/11 paranoia available only from the region of which Paula Poundstone once said, 'I always thought of you guys as America's hat.' Plus, it will feature our unique talent resources such as Maurice Dean Wint's vast reserves of dramatic over-emoting and David Hewlett proving that he is capable of embodying 76 different varieties of dramatic apathy, plus occasionally Nicole DeBoer will take a break from looking adorable to give voice all sorts of strange festering animosities that the average moviegoer didn't realize still exists in the hearts of advanced math majors everywhere with lines along the lines of: "Duh, it means you're no good at math." And all with a weirdly torture porn twist at the end...Bud, I'm seeing, ten, twelve years down the road this is going to be known as Canada's TRON, Disney will be begging to buy the rights, Marvel crossover, it'll be brilliant."
And years later here's Uncle Biejelic all decked out in swag he bought off the Cube Zero & Hypercube sitting at the edge of a pool with Bruce Boxleitner negotiating the rights for a combined TRON/Cube reboot prequel and that is my Aliens Vs Predators you are describing there.
I can't say it any clearer than that.
The acting is not oscar caliber, but that's okay. It is, by all means, adequate for the venue and the genre.
The truly wonderful part of the movie is in the plot, and the application of various principles one certain discipline I will not mention.
This is a movie that is definitely worth the time to watch.
