So Predator Is Better Then Alien?
Story: When audiences caught a glimpse of an alien skull mounted in the trophy cabinet of a Predator in the 1990 film PREDATOR 2, it seemed a franchise was about to be born. Sure enough, comic book artists immediately seized on the possibilities suggested by the brief scene, and a number of skirmishes between the deadly foes were played out on the printed page. Fans have had to endure a lengthy wait for a cinematic match-up, but writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson (EVENT HORIZON) has finally delivered the blood-splattered goods in ALIEN VS. PREDATOR. Set in the near future, a team of archaeologists lead by Charles Wiedland (Lance Henriksen, returning for more ALIEN action after appearances in the second and third films) ventures towards an inexplicable hot zone detected in Antarctica. Joined by Alexa Woods (Sanaa Lathan) and the requisite amount of human fodder for the otherworldly creatures to feast on, Wiedland and his cohorts discover a sizeable underground pyramid. Chaos ensues as they awake the Queen alien from her blissful slumber, causing face-hugging and chest-bursting scenes aplenty. But the ailing crew has a further quandary to grapple with in the shape of some fearsome Predators, who are using the aliens as bait for their offspring to brawl with in an ancient initiation ritual. With the human team trapped in the labyrinth-like pyramid, the battle evolves into a nail-biting three-way tussle between the archaeologists and their extraterrestrial adversaries. Fans of both the ALIEN and PREDATOR movies should find much to satiate their appetites here, and with an ending suggesting further hostilities between the pernicious coupling, this one looks set to run and run.
Comments: So Predator Is Better Then Alien?
Now i LOVED ALL of the Alien Movies AND Predator Movies AND enjoyed this movie therefor very mutch as well.
The end is kinda funny when a alien emerges out of a predator with his fangs, perhaps a new breed of alien :-D
anyways, lets talk about the story.
Predators are a species witch use earth as a safari, now in predator I & II it was told that they like hot temperature, probably because there home world is a bit warmer then on earth.
Yet in this movie it was set at Antartica, under a few thousand miles of ice. It should be to cold for the predators then not?
a bit illogical.
About the Aliens.
In Alien I the setting was way in the future, on a remota planet that got colonized by human pioneers, they discovered hidden caves with eggs of aliens and the aliens wiped out colony and they start investigating.
I haven't seen Alien I in a while now, but i believe that the Alien wasn't so well known.
Since it's FURTHER into the future then '' Alien vs Predator '' then they should know more about it, because there was a human survivor in '' Alien vs Predator '' and a miljonair was involved and satellite images caught and all that so surely they must have investigated about this.
Ok, now combine it together, great action and all that, but let's discuss moviestory a bit.
At about halfway till 75 % of the movie they choose to pick sides of the predator because of the belief '' The enemy of my enemy is my friend ''
In all previous Predator movies the predator wasn't so friendly, now he fights with humans against the aliens?
When watching this movie you have to set your mind at '' 0 ''. some things just don't add up.
But one hell of a cool movie.
Definately Recommendable. A+++++
