    Well, I did this afternoon, anyway.

    I got pretty much what I was expecting. It wasn't as good as any of the Predator movies, nor as good as any of the Alien movies. None of the action scenes were anything to write home about, and - surprise, surprise - there was no blood.

    The action sequences were decent, but they were leaning towards the choppy side, a la Chronicles of Riddick and other poorly choreographed fight scenes.

    I thought the ending was very unpredictable, simply for the fact that I think it's stupid. Unless they did it on purpose...I'm not going to spoil it for you, though. You'll probably know what I mean.

    All in all, I give it 3 stars. 3 stars from someone who was expecting a shitty movie. Pretty decent.

    I hope the next one is made by someone else.

    you people hate on everything. pisses me off.

    im not a big fan of this movie, nor have i seen it, but that shit looked pretty crazy.

    takes a lot of time to make those damn things, and even though it might not be as mind blowing as you had hoped, i could still respect the film for its efforts and for how much work must have gone into making the film itself.

    You’re a chump, tease. I said that it was pretty decent, just not nearly as good as any of it’s predecessors. Seriously, you are a Class ‘A’ Moron.

    Fuck hard work. Tease, you can try as hard as you want to be cool, but that doesn’t make me respect you.

    If the first Alien and Predator movies were like this, there would be no talk of a “franchise”, that's for sure.

    He’s right. It did start off very well, but went quickly to shit, once they got to the pyramid site.

    Simply, it was badly directed, and the ever-prevalent atmosphere of corruption, greed, and violence in the Alien series wasn’t there.

    The atmosphere that was present in the first Predator was not there, either. The delving into the mind of the Predator, his curiousity, as well as his pride in his trophies…they weren’t conveyed as well.

    Paul Anderson made this movie like a horror flick with some good novelty value.

    It was better than Ghost Ship, but worse than Punisher.

    I don't care what you people say, it's not hating: THIS MOVIE BLOWS.

    Don't waste you time. Don't waste your life. It's not worth it. Over hyped, and underwhelming. Booty-leg or theatre, it's terrible.

    DON'T GO

    Haha, I saw Harold and Kumar after I saw AVP. Now that movie is pretty damn funny (at times).
