A full 33 minutes! That’s how long it takes before we get some kills. But hey is that that long to wait for Predators going against Aliens? NEVER!
What’s it about? During an archaeological expedition on Bouvetøya Island in Antarctica, a team of archaeologists and other scientists find themselves caught up in a battle between the two legends. Soon, the team realize that only one species can win.
Is this one of the best Alien / Predator movies? No. Is it in the top 5. Yes. I get that die hard movie fans of the franchises might not enjoy it. However, I found once it got going it never let up. A lot of the kills are PG-13 in the fashion that we only hear the kill vs seeing the kill. Does that take away from the movie? Not at all. In fact, I really enjoyed this movie for what it was and wasn’t. Sure we don’t have Sigourney Weaver‘s Ripley or a lot of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s look and feel. But who cares! This is just a thrill ride of a good time and it reminded me a lot of what a good Jurassic Park aka World movie should be. Hmm, maybe they’re do a Aliens vs Predators vs Jurassic World.. human food for thought.
All humans be afraid of the idea of going into a forgotten world. There’s not much more to say about this film. It’s got some cool kills, fun action and a dark underworld tone. Everybody RUN!!! Ewww now that’s scary!
FINAL THOUGHTS: 0 snores out of 5 snores ~ It’s a WIDE AWAKE movie! Yeah I get that it’s not a standard Alien movie or Predator for that fact. However, I was starting to get bored with the same old same old movie. It’s nice to see a change in direction.
