A small Colorado town becomes the battleground between two of the deadliest extra-terrestrial lifeforms - the Alien and the Predator. When a Predator scout ship crash-lands in the hills outside the town, Alien facehuggers are released in the crash. Also released is a hybrid Alien/Predator. A man and his son hunting in the forest near the crash site soon become the first victims of the facehuggers. A Predator receives data about the crash on his home planet and he comes to Earth. One at a time, the inhabitants of the town become targets of the Aliens and the Predator. The National Guard is called in, but they are unable to stop the deadly creatures. A plan is set in motion to destroy the town with a nuclear device.

The following are 7 of the most common (and, after a while, the most annoying) sounds that you are gonna hear uttered throughout AVP's 1-hour-40-minute running time - "Growl!" "Hiss!" "Splatter!" "Gush!" "Gasp!" "Snarl!" (and, of course) "Scream!" (that old, familiar stand-by).

And, I ask you - Was this stale and predictable Sci-Fi/Horror film's story really for real? Like, can't the rabid fans of this particular sub-genre get enough of this junk?

From my perspective - I'd say that Hollywood has literally milked this whole "Alien" business right to death. Surely I'm not the only one who's fed-up to the gills with this totally recycled crap?

It really killed me that in this truly demented soap opera of high school jocks, bad-boys and cute kids there wasn't a single ugly, or old, or out-of-shape person in the entire cast.

And, why were all of the scenes involving confrontations with aliens and predator always filmed in near-darkness? Eh? Why? (Could it be that if these creatures were actually shown in broad daylight the viewer would see just how stupid they really looked and end up laughing at all of the "ass kicking" nonsense?

*Trivia Note* - Though the story was set in the town of Gunnison, Colorado - Most of the exterior shooting for this $40 million production was done in Vancouver and Langley, BC.

When a mob of fertile Aliens go tusk to tusk with one very pissed off Predator in a small Colorado town (apparently located just outside of Vancouver) the local townsfolk wind up with two new career options......egg basket or lunch. There are so many awful things about this film that it is easier to list the things I actually liked: some of the creature effects were cool, the exploding heads were funny, and the “maternity ward massacre” was just plain wrong on so many levels. Lastly, despite all the hype on the box the gore factor in this “unrated” version was not only disappointingly tame but poorly lit as well. A real cinematic stink bomb.

I've been following the films with alien vs predator and this one is excellent for sound. The bass in this film is simply SOLID!!! My two subwoofers were sending shock waves across my floor and vibrating my walls. The visuals, quite a few scenes are dark, look excellent If your television has good black level capabilities. Now!!! The one thing i look forward to is the weapons the Predator carries. With each movie, it's weapons are more advanced. Including it's vessels, which are always very cool . The sound in this film is AMAZING!!! Especially when you use your HOMETHEATER!!!!! I often play my movies at reference level and i had to turn down the volume...slightly. Ha,ha,ha. I'm blessed to have very cool neighbors who also appreciate sound as i do and have also invested in their own system after hearing and feeling mine on the weekends. With out a doubt this movie is 'sound freak" approved!!!! I wasn't completely feeling the story, but the audio and creatures are the stars. I give this movie 3 and half stars. For bass that moves your floors, visual effects, and a so-so story. Pork fried rice, sliced pork, egg rolls, lots of soy sauce and duck sauce and Arizona ice tea.
