Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (49 ):

Without Sanaa Lathan, the sequel to Alien vs. Predator lacks a crucial emotional center. Instead, it delivers lots of gore and several flimsy main characters, none of whom ever quite understands what they're up against.

Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem not only lifts themes from the Alien and Predator series, it actually steals well-known scenes from its parent franchises, from the Alien's drippy jaw to the Predator's removal of his high-tech helmet for the big showdown. As usual, the Aliens are slapdash in their rampaging, and the Predator is relatively moral, holding to strict rules of hunting. Unfortunately, the humans are also rather slack, providing cardboardy background for the main action -- which is consistently dark-shadowed, loud, and gooey.
