Just 5 more days
until I get so see AvP 2 and I must admit I'm looking forward to it.
Tremendously so in fact. I haven't been this excited about a film since
transformers and that's saying something!
Adding to my
rampant enthusiasm, based so far on a single trailer, are the first
reviews by pesky Americans who have somehow managed to already see it.
Grrr... One jumped out for me as what he describes is apparently the
perfect example of a movie I would enjoy. In fact, based on this review we
might be looking at the third 5 MI movie ever. Holy crap.
But don't take my
word for it. Just read and be enlightened.
9 stars out of 10 seems pretty ridiculous for a
movie that has the most threadbare of plots and the most two-dimensional
of characters. Make no mistake: AvP:R is a terrible, terrible film.
But it is an AWESOME movie. Anyone who goes to this expecting anything
other than absolute, mindless, relentless carnage deserves what they get.
Those of you who really just wanted to see a movie with aliens and
predators wrecking crap and each other will have a blast.
The movie is a checklist of clichés, gimmicks, and devices. But more than
that, it's a checklist of all the superficial crap fans want to see. Ever
wonder if an alien's retractable jaws can punch through a safety helmet?
NOW YOU KNOW! There is no logic or sense, rhyme or reason to this movie.
But it IS loaded to the gills with violence. It's ridiculously,
over-the-top, gloriously violent. Every time you get sick of the plot or
characters, something dies. Even if you count JUST kids in the movie,
there are still five kills (counting kids in utero at least) alone. Let me
be clear: they killed pregnant women and children. It is hilariously,
This is the Looney Tunes of the Alien and Predator franchises. It is
modern grand guignol. It is GLORIOUS.
Holy crap holy crap
Alien vs Predator:
Requiem will rule!
to the world of sucks and rules
