Many audiences across the world were skeptical when Alien vs. Predator was released, but were even more worried when the sequel was announced. The creatures of the Alien and Predator franchises are classics and shouldn't be tampered with.

Aliens, predators, and a hybrid between the two creatures now bring their battle to a small American town, throwing local residents into harm's way. Now, a group of survivors from the small town must defend themselves against the two races or die trying. The concept of the film in general isn't anything new or original. However, the idea of the hybrid got me interested, since it's something new for both of the two features. The dialogue is a disgrace from beginning to end. There are lines that sound tacky in every sense of the word.

There aren't any actors worth mentioning who are well known. There are more known actors in smaller roles, such as Sam from the HBO series True Blood. All of the acting is forgettable and not worth mentioning in order to to impress anybody.

Even though FOX could've done a lot more with the visuals. The creatures are all people in suits and look quite fake. The alien goo spread across the screen throughout the movie even seems unconvincing. It's extremely hard to see what's happening through most of the film. This is perhaps the darkest movie I have yet to see and requires its viewers to strain their eyes to figure out what's going on.

The first Alien vs. Predator at least has an interesting history of how the fight came to be. This sequel has none of that and has no redeeming moments. The monsters are obviously people in costumes and it never appears real. The thought of a hybrid between an alien and predator is awesome, but doesn't translate well onto the screen. Aliens vs. Predator 2 is an unpleasant disaster.

My Rating = One Star
