Alien vs Predator: Requiem (Warning: may contain spoilers)
Ahhhh, the joys of when a movie is supposed to be an "R" rating as opposed to a "PG". So its no surprise that AVPR is so much better than the debut. Essentially AVPR picks up where the first movie left off with the hero Predator from the first one on board a starship. As witnessed in the first one the Hero is inpregnated with a Alien which bursts out and creates havoc on board the starship which is circling Earth. The ship then crash lands back on earth in Gunnison, Colorado in which the Alien species begins to populate the town. It is important to note that the initial Alien that comes out of the Predator shares similar features as its host but also has a new weapon of sorts which involves a new way to inpregnate a host.
As with most movies you have your group of heros and victims throughout the film although it was another great surprise to see that at least one hero bites it who most would not have expected. But the death scene for that particular hero is ****ING AWESOME! Essentially, after the starship crashes word gets back to the home planet of the Predator in which one embarks for Earth. He essentially finds a way to kill off a good portion of the Alien infestation while at the same time taking out a few humans here and there. It seems his main purpose is to do cleanup to make sure the Human race does not figure out what has happened and what kind of technology is available.
Other than that the rest is pretty much fight for your right to live until the end when **** goes up in smoke (no pun intended lol). Of course the end leaves the door wide open for another sequel but seems to follow the path of the books that i have read involving these species. So by all means if you were disappointed with the first one check this one out. Its by far better than the first so go out and see it!
