Even the Crew of ‘AVP: Requiem’ Seemed to Hate Their Job

Remember the 2006 disaster that was Alien versus Predator: Requiem? You know, the one that didn’t really make much sense and was also so dark that half the time you couldn’t even see what was on the screen? Yeah, what a mangled disaster that movie was.

I mean, I’ll give credit where credit is due in the fact that the Predalien was a sweet concept that probably looked awesome. I just couldn’t ever see it clearly. Also, they flat out killed a kid without looking away. Seriously, they didn’t turn away when the facehugger latched on and they didn’t turn away when the alien burst out of his chest. Definite applause from me there.

But the rest of the movie? Wow. Just…just wow. And I think the crew knew just how bad it was going to be because we now have video evidence of them during filming looking annoyed as shit. Seriously, watch the below video and starting at about 1:45 and running for 45-ish seconds, there’s a lighting guy who clearly is beyond annoyed with how things are being run.

What say you? Am I being too hard on this movie or does it deserve all the vitriol it gets?



  • MySelfDestruct

    I try to find something good in even the worst horror or sci fi films but its pretty hard to find anything enjoyable in that film. Maybe a better cast could have made it a bit more enjoyable but the story and script was so absurd that it was already beyond redemption before even filming.

    • eli

      “I try to find something good in even the worst horror or sci fi film”
      Same here. And more often than not, I do find something of merit to take away from even a mostly shitty film. But like you, I found nothing redeemable in this trash heap of a film.

  • DrewHamster

    I agree with your thoughts on this movie. I really wanted to like it. Even though I’m not a fan of Resurrection or the first AVP, I still found them enjoyable, but seriously the godawful lighting just killed it for me. It’s a shame people knew it was going to be bad and nothing was done to improve it (though I guess what really could they do in their position). I know the AVP films have pretty much been retconned now, but didn’t this one end with a cliffhanger too?

    • Leo Venegas

      That’s right, it ended with the revelation of “Mrs. Yutani” getting her hands on the predator tech. That cliffhanger was actually not half bad.

  • John

    I liked the Predalien but I think Avp 2004 is the “better” film.

    • Joseph Sheldahl

      No argument there.

  • eli

    “Am I being too hard on this movie or does it deserve all the vitriol it gets?”

    You’re not being too hard on it. Recently rewatched for the 1st time since it came out, & it’s still a piece of garbage. The worst of any Alien, Predator or Alien/Predator film.

  • RidleyScott

    Well, wouldn’t you be annoyed if you knew you were working on a garbage film? On a film that actually KILLED the Alien franchise?

    This is the movie that truly killed the Alien franchise, and it had to be resuscitated, or “Frankenstein’d”, by its father, Ridley Scott. And with a spinoff film without the titular creature, no less.

    This was the franchise reaching its inevitable “Batman and Robin” phase before getting the “Batman Begins” treatment. Happens to a lot of franchises. Also happened with James Bond, and Star Trek.

    And Jonathan, this was a TERRIBLE movie and the Predalien looked AWFUL. AWFUL. This is one of the worst movies ever. Watch Aliens, and then pop this in. How could you even think that you’re being too harsh?

    • MoriyaMug

      You’re not comparing Prometheus to Batman Begins.

      • RidleyScott

        Fresh reboots with A-list talent across the board after franchise-killing entries? Yeah, I am.

        • Joseph Sheldahl

          It’s not a reboot, it’s a prequel. Everything that happened in the other movies is technically (for now) still canon.

          • RidleyScott

            Fresh restarts*

            It’s not a prequel, either. It’s a spin-off that precedes the events of Alien, if you want to get reeeeeally specific. The movie is so vastly different from the other six Alien films.

    • Harley Mitchel Dirk

      To be fair, the Predalien had a much better design before more Predator features were added. It still wa not great

    • Foxenstein Must Be Destroyed

      i watched it up to the point where the kid got killed then lost interest.
      AVP is somewhat it’s own franchise and has nothing really to do with the aliens or preditor films… they are more like a what if arc that’s seen in comics.

      • RidleyScott

        Get away from me.

        • Foxenstein Must Be Destroyed

          i’m no where near you but that’s interesting.

  • Beanis

    The whole movie was a slog to get through. I remember thinking this is like a CW show meets Aliens. It felt even more far removed from the franchise than AvP. This is not the “Aliens on Earth” film I wanted to see. That would be Ripley finally making it back to Earth and dealing with aliens one last time and ending her story arch after Resurrection. Sigourney Weaver deserves one last film to give Ripley a proper send off (albeit a downer, Alien 3 ended perfectly with no need for more).

    • zybch

      And 3 has the best title montage of any movie I’ve seen.

  • Cappy Tally

    I remember a lot of Predator fanboys were pissed with the first AvP because some of the Predators were basically cannon fodder for the Aliens, and there was this weird sense of hope that AvPR was going to fix that by only including one Predator. Problem is, this removed all the tension from every confrontation between the “Wolf” Pred and the Aliens. When the movie is titled “Alien vs Predator” and you only have one Pred, you need him to last the entire film or else the title is stupid. So he was set up to win every time.

    This is just one problem I had with AvPR. All the usual criticisms are true as well. It was cheap, exploitative, stupid, and too damn dark. The first AvP film may have pissed off some of the diehard 80s fanatics with its PG-13 rating and it’s certainly not a great film itself, but it’s much better than AvPR for sure.

    • Joseph Sheldahl

      Yes! This! Thank you. I felt like the directors had no respect for the aliens. They were just there to get kicked around. No real challenge at all. I disagree with your assessment of why it didn’t work though. Look at Die Hard. There’s a ton of tension in that movie because you believe that John McClane could get fucking killed at any moment. So, one predator against hordes of aliens should’ve been incredibly intense… and it wasn’t because the aliens were just big rubber things that got kicked and punched a lot. No danger at all because they weren’t dangerous.

      • Cappy Tally

        One Predator against hordes of Aliens can never really be tense as long as it’s called “Alien vs Predator” to be honest. The Predator has to make it to the end or else the title is misleading. Sending out multiple Predators increases the tension because you don’t need all of them to make it to the end. In the first AvP, there was the scene with the Celtic Pred and the Grid Alien. Because we know there are other Aliens and one other Predator, that fight could have gone either way. The chances of one Pred’s survival decrease from a storytelling perspective as long as there’s at least one other Pred to make sure the title “Alien vs Predator” is still relevant.

        Even all that ASIDE, the Wolf Pred in AvPR was far too competent from a storytelling perspective. There was no tension with him at all because, well, he was wiping the floor with every Alien he came across.

        Also, quick nitpick: AvPR did do one thing to pander to Alien fans, or rather, fans of “Aliens” specifically: the ridged heads. Problem is, the ridged heads are further along in an Alien’s life cycle. The xenomorphs in “Aliens” had enough time for their domes to sort of molt away and expose the ridges beneath. The xenomorphs in AvPR were all fresh and new, yet they had the exposed ridges anyway.

        Factor in the stupidity of the Predator/Alien hybrid being a “young queen” with the out-of-nowhere ability to impregnate people directly by vomiting in their mouths, and it just goes to show how little the filmmakers thought about…damn near anything.

        • Joseph Sheldahl

          Yeah, I don’t like the ridged heads. That only came into canon because Cameron thought it looked ‘cooler’. I hate the fact that a whole aspect of the canon was fabricated and expanded on just because one guy thought it looked ‘cool’. I think it looks dumb. The domed heads always looked scarier to me.

          I also disagree that one predator vs hordes of aliens can’t be tense. Again, I refer to my Die Hard comparison. One protagonist vs many antagonists can always be tense. The problem isn’t even that the wolf predator was too competent, it’s that the aliens were just cannon fodder. They were too incompetent. The predator was no less skilled that any of the ones we’ve seen before. The aliens often acted without logic or strategy and we know them to be a lot smarter than that.

          You don’t need disposable protagonists to generate tension. Only if you’re using human members. Predators should always be lone hunters. If the aliens were more threatening it’d be more intense. And, predators are supposed to make it to the end, but they never survive their own movie. By your logic, any movie with one protagonist vs hordes of antagonists is devoid of tension. False. AVP is no exception. If done right, it can be incredibly intense. The problem here is that it simply wasn’t done right. Each encounter was just a glorified fist fight- with shitty coreography to boot. The aliens ran right into traps, and tried to attack simply by lunging at the predator. They showed no cunning, no skill, and no intellect. Boring. The problem wasn’t a single predator, or his level of adequacy, it was the gross inadequacy of the aliens.

          You can’t solve a movie’s problems by making the hero less capable, you simply make the villains a bigger threat.

          • Cappy Tally

            The error you’re making is the assumption that the Predator is the protagonist. Such a film wouldn’t be impossible, but it would be incredibly difficult. You’d have to find a way to make the Predator relatable even though it has very different values and traditions, no spoken language we’ve ever heard, and a face that doesn’t lend itself to empathy which is often hidden behind a mask anyway.

            This is why most AvP stories have human protagonists. So, what this does is put them on more equal narrative footing. Unless there’s only one predator.

            All the tension created in films like Die Hard rely on the huge amount of empathy the audience has for the protagonist. If you have a protagonist that hunts humans for sport and has no immediately sympathetic qualities, that’s not going to work. All that would do is help expose the simple fact that most of the time, the protagonist has to make it to the end. They can’t be killed in the middle or the movie is over.

            Sure, there are plenty of examples of films that break that rule to tremendous effect. But those films don’t carry the same sort of narrative structure, or set of expectations, that an AvP film would. Imagine an AvP film with one predator who dies at the 40 minute mark. Where’s the fun in that? What’s the point of an AvP movie that does that?

            If you can’t create tension through empathy and you need to justify the title for the whole film, the best way to add tension to every encounter is to simply have more than one predator, giving each fight multiple possible outcomes.

          • Joseph Sheldahl

            I’m not making an error. The predator is by default the protagonist because if he loses, humanity- or at least a big chunk of it, is fucked. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. The error you’re making is that a protagonist has to be sympathetic. I don’t know where you got that from. If a movie plays out right, you could have a serial killer/rapist as the protagonist and nobody would blink an eye so long as the antagonist is worse. Like you said there are plenty of films that do this, but where did you get that 40 minute mark nonsense?

            I’m talking about movies where the protagonist lives. You don’t need empathy to generate tension, and you don’t even need human characters. Case in point? Godzilla movies. Specifically, Godzilla vs Biollante. Godzilla is the hero in that movie, and he still kills a shit load of humans- but in the end, you can still root for him to take out Biollante because that monster is worse than he is. The lesser of two evils. That would be the dynamic a proper AVP movie could ride on.

            You seem to have it in your head that there’s only one singular narrative structure that a good AVP movie could possibly have. I’m sure people thought the same thing about a sequel to Alien before 1986. I think you’re being very closeminded. Writers have been cranking out amazing AVP stories for years and as a writer myself I can tell you that there are more ways to make a solid AVP story than not. There’s no need to approach it so rigidly. A lone predator would work. See, the predator has to be the trick play. He has to be played as another antagonist until the humans realize they’re just in the way and he’s trying to hunt down the aliens. Then your whole last act is a crazy violent gauntlet as the predator throws down with the hordes of aliens and probably dies via his wrist bomb in the end.

            And that’s just one plausible scenario, I could think of dozens.

  • Wilson Bro

    That’s just standard time/money concerns getting to a crew, with some extra tension being generated by portions of the crew not being as attentive as they should be. One of my experiences has been when put in the middle of a pattern of squibs set of go off at close range, where all communication devices were ordered to be turned off to prevent accidental detonation and subsequent injury. Just before going for a take, a crewmember blundered out of the shadows from behind using his mobile (cell) phone. He was swiftly put in his place…

  • amp69

    It was trash and I like it for that reason.

    • Harley Mitchel Dirk

      Same here, sadly…

    • zybch

      Yep. Liked it a LOT more than AvP1, it was just fun and kids getting horribly killed is always great in movies, but I certainly don’t consider it to be canon.

      • GrossGreg

        I agree. I HATE HATE HATE AvP but find AvP:R almost tolerable. Mainly because the first movie shit on both franchises so bad that by the time the second movie rolled around I no longer gave a shit.

  • TH3J4CK4L

    The movie was an abysmal mess. The kid scene was also so terribly acted I couldn’t even take it seriously. I’m not against the idea of crossovers,but its a really hard thing to try and merge characters into a single franchise without making the explanation bad as to why its happening. It just seems like the avp films sacrificed good story over fan service and it suffered because of it.

  • Brian Wiley

    this video doesn’t really reflect the crews disdain for the movie. Filmmaking is tedious especially when you’re on hour 14 and you have to be up early in the morning for the next location. People clash.
    It reminds me of the off screen fight you hear in the Matrix reloaded behind the scenes of the free way chase where two men start yelling at each other. Or when Keanu Reeves starts cursing himself out because he couldn’t get the Burly Brawl fight right.
    It happens.

    • J Jett

      Brian, well said!

  • J Jett

    so the fact this one lighting guy MAY have been having a bad day or a bad moment mean working on the movie was a horrible experience? WTF?! everyone has bad days/bad moments. nothing in this video is proof that working on this movie sucked.

  • Mike Tank

    There is nothing out of the ordinary about the crews’ temperament in this vid. In fact, it’s pretty subdued compared to what some shoots are like. It’s just a typical day at work, with everyone a little stressed out due to time/budget constraints. Believe me, as someone who has worked on many film sets, this is nothing.

  • wehoaks

    Oy, this site. Oy.

  • Josh


  • Yep, the movie was awful and so dark that even increasing screen brightness didn’t help. Even more sad is that instead of having it’s own identity it ripped off ideas from aliens but made them look worse. AVP had more originality.

  • REC03

    isn’t the Danielle Pearl the cinematographer? he did the original Texas Chainsaw and the remake. honestly i felt the movie could have been fun in a guilty pleasure way. it had a lot of action and the effects seemed good but you couldn’t see a damn thing. it was like they put this horrible dark filter in post and it makes the movie unwatchable.

  • Christopher Nickerson

    Bad movie. Ruined continuity with existing canon. Messed up behavior of monsters. Despite all of this, still more entertaining than 1st aliens vs predator movie

  • that films was atrocius. Terrible CGI (blood), , plot that made no sense, a cast of nobodies and terrible characters with zero sci-fi. Say what you say about the first film but it has an interesting and atmospheric setting (although it crumbled in the second half terribly).

    • Scott Neil

      So you didn’t see the part where you saw the predators homeworld,the ship it came in,the weird dissolving fluid and the many other sci-fi scenes?,think you watched the wrong film.

      • you mean those that lasted like 2 minutes? Yeah I did and then cried at how horrible the film was.

  • Nathan Bradley

    respite, It wasn’t just me that hated every god dam minute of this film then?

  • SpaceManSpliffz .

    that movie was a fucking turd

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    Looks like a typical movie set to me. But yea, that film sucked pretty hard.

  • Hayden Golightly

    After AVP i was dying for them to make a follow up film that wasnt in the artic but in a city where there were loads of civilians. When i heard about the movie I fan-girl squealed. Then my brother and I rented the movie ordered pizza and were tickled with excitement. And then the movie went all dark literally. Couldnt see shit and for some reason they made it all rainy and stormy which made seeing it more hard. Then the end of the movie hinting for a 3rd movie I wanted to see something from that ending be made known about in the remake Preadors movie. But no. my hope were crushed.

  • Frank Popp Jr.

    I liked this one better than the first AVP. There is also nothing out of the ordinary on set… I thought it was actually pretty cool behind the scenes footage.

  • ThunderDragoon

    Looks like a situation that happens on any movie set. That’s life. As for the movie itself, I enjoyed it more than the last 2 Alien movies, so it’s just fine.

    • Joseph Sheldahl

      Maybe you’re just fine, but I can’t say I’d ever trust your taste in movies. And, no, AVPR is not just fine. It makes no sense and it’s too dark to see anything.

      • Scott Neil

        Brightness and contrast settings fool,not my fault you’re too stupid or lazy to change them.

        • Joseph Sheldahl

          Fuck off idiot. No movie should ever require manual settings changes to watch. I even rented it on blu ray, no difference. The directors are hacks with a horrible looking movie. It’s not my fault you’re too stupid to realize that.

          • Scott Neil

            Calm the fuck down micro-penis,not my fault you’re so fucking lazy you’d rather sit and watch a film you can’t see shit in rather than adjust your tv,it takes a few seconds and if it means you can at least see the film then what’s your fucking problem.

          • Joseph Sheldahl

            You’re a very sad human being, I feel sorry for you. You actually like this movie and think acting like an asshole to defend it makes you look tough. Boo hoo.

          • Scott Neil

            Yes,I like it and no,I didn’t have any trouble seeing what happened,it’s nowhere near the class of alien and aliens obviously,been into alien and predator since alien first came out,not that that’s a qualifier by any means but even back then folk moaned about alien being too dark to see,never had a problem here.

        • Zewp

          Lol, and here you tell me that instead of walking out the cinema because I could literally not see what was happening in half the movie, I should have gone to the manager and asked him to up the brightness and contrast on his projector.

          Lame excuse dude. This film was filmed too dark, No two ways about it. If people have to fiddle with monitor settings just to see wtf is going on, you did something very wrong. Being too dark is the number one complaint most people had with this film. You can argue about that being a legitimate complaint if you want, but it doesn’t really change the fact that people paid for a movie where they had to sit and squint in a dark cinema to see what’s happening.

          • Scott Neil

            I’m not defending the cinema release,obviously nothing could be done to help that,what I’m saying is if you are watching it now,at home and you’d rather sit like an idiot complaining about it being too dark rather than doing something about it then more fool you,there’s clearly something wrong with you if you do.Nearly every game ever made asks you to adjust the brightness etcetera to get the best out of it,if you ignore this then complain you’re an idiot,same with the film,you could improve it but would rather sit in the dark so you can moan.

  • Joseph Sheldahl

    This movie was horrible. Terrible. Worse than Alien Resurrection.
    At least Resurrection’s story made sense from scene-to-scene, and there was that cool underwater scene. As bad as Resurrection is, AVPR is even worse. Hate this movie so much.

    • PsychoMantis18

      Resurrection is the film AlienS wishes it could’ve been.

      • Joseph Sheldahl

        Badly written, with horrible humor and a terrible last act? Nah, I’m pretty sure Resurrection is the awkward French scare-comedy Jeunet wanted it to be and nothing more. Aliens is tight as a drum and practically perfect.

        • PsychoMantis18

          Clearly you have the mentality of a 12yr old.

          • Joseph Sheldahl

            Says the person who can’t actually counter my statement.

          • PsychoMantis18

            1 – What does “countering” have to do with anything?
            2 – I pointed out your obvious stupidity in labelling Aliens as ‘practically perfect’, which could technically be considered countering your argument anyways.
            3. Making broad and ignorant statements. as you did, is not “countering”.

            My original response is clearly correct.

          • Joseph Sheldahl

            It’s only obvious to you. The general consensus of people who like good movies is that Aliens rocks, Resurrection sucks. Have fun in your lonely little corner with your unpopular opinion. I’ll tell you what else, I’d rather be stupid- and be able to have fun with a bunch of people, than be the smartest man on the cinder, and have nobody want to be around me. You sound like an incredibly unpleasant person and I feel sorry for you.

          • PsychoMantis18

            So your opinion is based on what others think and is not your own, making your argument worthless. Oh, and supporting my original response once again. Thanks.

          • Joseph Sheldahl

            No, my opinion is my own. But I think you’re ignorant to ignore the fact you’re in the minority here. I saw Aliens before I ever had access to movie reviews or other peoples’ opinions of it. Your original statement hasn’t been supported by anything either of us have subsequently said. I don’t think you have the capacity to explain why you think Alien Resurrection is superior, because if you did, you would’ve. I’ve had this conversation with many people and in the end we could respect and accept each others views, but you’re just crass and insulting. Asserting that anyone who doesn’t agree with you is stupid.

            If you have any desire whatsoever to have a legitimate discussion about which movie is superior- you can start by educating yourself on my full opinions. I run a movie review blog, and I’ve written in depth reviews of both movies.


            Then we can talk. I’ve got contact links on my blog, but as for this comment section- I’m done replying to you.

      • MarsupialRebellion

        Wow that is an opinion that I’ve never once heard before! Haha

        • PsychoMantis18


      • Darnell

        It’s funny i watched Aliens a few weeks ago and was blown away by how well that movie still holds up. The practical effects to this day are still amazing and look real and hold up.

        That movie was so far ahead of it’s time. When you compare it to movies such as The Thing where the practical effects haven’t held up very well you realize just how amazing Aliens was as a film.

        • PsychoMantis18

          Was that sarcasm?
          Aliens helped usher in a cinematic era of macho stupidity and loud noises over substance, i’ll give you that.
          The Thing’s practical effects shit all over Aliens’ AND it was made on a much smaller budget.

      • Scott Neil

        Get real you braindead fool.

        • PsychoMantis18

          Says an Aliens fan, the quintessential movie for any ‘braindead fool’.

          • Scott Neil

            Ok,the whole world and I are oviously wrong and your lone,franky idiotic opinion is all that matters.Psychmantis huh?,metal gear,the quintessential game series for the braindead fool who thinks 15 minutes of gameplay and 100 hours of cutscenes is fun.

          • PsychoMantis18

            Please keep going; you’re doing a brilliant job at illustrating your boundless stupidity.

          • Scott Neil

            Oooh,what a cutting retort,go on then smart arse,inform the world WHY aliens is bad in your opinion,show some sort of cogent reasoning instead of ‘me hate film,you dumb’.Neanderthal.

          • PsychoMantis18

            LOL. ‘Cutting retort’ – bet you thought that sounded impressive.

            You do realise that the (illogical) reasoning you criticise me for – ‘me hate film, you dumb’ – is actually what you’ve been doing? – ‘World like film, you dumb’
            I mean, you’ve been saying a lot of stupid things but I thought i’d try and help you out with this one because you appear to be struggling and it’s getting pathetic.

            And it’s hard to not come across as a smart-arse when dealing with absolute stupidity. You can resume your G.I. Joe fantasies now, i’m leaving as this convo is boring and a waste of time.

          • Scott Neil

            I didn’t criticise you for illogical reasoning,I said you never bothered to provide any,I don’t need to provide any as the film is universally adored so there are already plenty of documentaries and commentaries on it that could say it better than me.Tell me why it’s bad?.

    • James

      I have to say resurrection was easily the worst of all of the alien films. It started out ok but then it just became a complete mess. I’d definitely watch requiem over that one.

      • Joseph Sheldahl

        But nothing even remotely cool happens in Requiem. There’s no cool characters and no cool moments. At least in Resurrection the crew of the Betty is fun to watch and the underwater scene is amazing. The only bad thing about Resurrection is the retarded last act and the bad sense of humor. Requiem is bad from beginning to end. Non stop. Requiem is dog shit.

        • James

          The only actor worth watching is the first one killed. The underwater scene was cool but that was it. There were quite a few cool moment in requiem.

          • Joseph Sheldahl

            You’re delusional. There was literally nothing cool in AVP:R. Cite one scene that wasn’t marred by shitty lighting, or lame writing. You can’t.
            Resurrection’s story made sense, AVP:R’s didn’t. The writing, cinematography, OST, and acting was better in Resurrection. Not to mention it’s just visually more interesting and exciting.

  • MarsupialRebellion

    FFS on EVERY movie almost EVERYONE will have a bad day or thirty. Because he was annoyed in that one shot doesn’t mean a damned thing. And no I didn’t think Requiem was that bad of a movie. I mean it was different and nowhere near as good as any of the other movies but it wasn’t nearly the abortion that everyone acts like it is.

    • Nahuel Benvenuto

      yes it was

      • MarsupialRebellion

        Oh ok thanks for clearing that up.

    • Dan Anderson

      Work as crew on films part time and yeah you are right. Everybody has bad days on sets.

  • MYJ Krueger

    I do appreciate the video but the title and body of the article as others have pointed out are so damn exaggerated. One lighting guy is annoyed to shit that things aren’t going to plan…. but… seriously.

    Anyway, the title of the film was actually AVPD (Alien Vs Predator: Dark!) because you can’t see shit!!!

    The Strause Brothers were too inexperienced to take on this film, and were given a budget way too small since the first one was never a big hit. It was a catch 22 situation where most of the budget went into trying to make the effects look good, but everything else suffering. Including the ability to hire good actors…good god.

  • Geno1987

    I recall the Strause Brothers were eager to do a follow up of AVP:R set in the future where the Xenomorph home planet would be shown to have dinosaur sized xenos with a similar landscape to LV-426.

      Now that would be fucking AMAZING!!!!

  • Nahuel Benvenuto

    both avp are bad movies, the first one is mediocre, but requiem is just a terrible b gore movie, the franchise has such potential but the only thing good to come out is the second game for pc, they need to make and AVP with high budget, in the future, and in space, they could make an amazing movie

  • Foxenstein Must Be Destroyed

    but what if it was edited so that you could hear the alien’s thoughts and they were all voiced by woody allen?… and the thoughts were everyday thoughts. a cut like that would make it a totally different movie. where’s my award?

  • Halloween_Vic

    I mean yea it was not the brightest movie but honestly I like it for what it is, I mean even the first film got flack and a lot of hate, but I enjoyed both for what they are. Some of the action fighting scenes are pretty cool and their just fun films to watch once in a while. Maybe we need a Alien Vs Predator film that actually takes place in Space maybe on a Xeno Planet or Predator Planet and have it be an action filled Space battle between these 2 creatures that would probably make more sense, but I honestly don’t feel this movie was as bad as people make it out to be but it’s not something that’s amazing either just simply fun.

    • The plan for AVP3 was to have actually taken place on a space station.

      • Halloween_Vic

        That would be pretty awesome, hopefully they still decide to make it.

  • ALIENS VS. PREDATOR:REQUIEM actually was a decent film that was the GUYVER 2:DARK HERO of the series,in terms of using unknown stars and upping both the violence and action. Too bad the planned AVP3 that took place in a space station never happened.

    • John Connor

      Tell me more about this planned AVP3 in a space station.

  • Serpico Jones

    I’m pretty sure that bald guy is Daniel Pearl, the cinematographer of the first Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

  • andy6581

    This movie was 2007, not 2006. And I thought it was pretty decent actually. Better than AvP

  • marklola12 .

    movie not the best but so a guy is peed off…this will happen on the set of most movies lol big deal..its got fuck all to do with how the movie turned out and they did not know it was going to flop either

  • Scott Neil

    I really liked it and never had a problem seeing whats going on,there are these things called brightness and contrast (or gamma depending on your viewing device),you may want to learn what they do.

    • Jason McClure

      I shouldn’t have to mess with those, the idiots making it too dark should know how to lighten it up. Also that movie sucked ass..

    • leanton31

      Brightness and contrast are useless is the movie is messed up in post production…

  • Ryan 741

    Shit myself with it coming through the window lol.

    • John Connor

      Same. I was expecting it to just pop up and look at him like before. Then I was like, “HOLY SHIT!”

  • John Connor

    I’ve only seen the movie once back when it was in theaters and I enjoyed the fuck out of it.

    • aNYagenda

      And apparently people pay attention to the kardashians.

      I never under estimate that there’s always somebody out there who will enjoy the fuck out of anything.

    • twobitcoder

      Really, I’d love to know how you were able to actually SEE IT. Did you use infrared goggles?

  • leanton31

    That movie made the first AvP looking like The Dark Knight Rises in comparison. Horrible lighting! I mean you don’t have to make every frucking thing pitch black to make a horror movie! And if you want to go dark you play with the shadows etc… Terrible, terrible work.

  • John von Shepard

    I really like this film, hell I have a soft spot for all the alien/predator/avp movies except alien 3. The thing that really struck me as special though in requiem was when they suddenly killed the female love interest, that made me very happy. Finally! I almost shouted, what makes the female love interest so important that she must always survive, and have others risk their lives for her. Nothing, that’s what, it was a great way to subvert our expectations, which they did repeatedly in that movie and why it sticks out so much to me.
