Film: AVPR: Aliens vs Predator - Requiem Click for more info

Does it really have to be called that? Anyway, the sixth Alien and fourth Predator film continues where the last part (don't ask which, since I've lost count by now) ended.

AVPR does exactly what it says on the tin. The two extraterrestrial races fight it out yet again in our backyard, with this time made more interesting with the introduction of an Alien borne of an impregnated Predator.

Of course, technically, this film can't be anything but bad; I won't bother going into too much detail regarding the acting or special effects. But bad can be fun too and there's plenty of blood here and guts to satisfy anyone on a Friday night. Without spoiling the film too much, the conclusion is pretty interesting and - dare I say it - different, and since the whole thing only lasted a paltry 90 minutes or so there was no regret felt on leaving the cinema.

I won't bother recommending AVPR; you'll already know whether you want to watch it or not.
