Ha ha ha! This is the worst piece of crap that I have watched that is alien related. AVP Rectum, a piece of shit LOL!
It started with what I guess is a kid with his dad in a forest and something crashes there. That was brightened up a bit so at least I could see something. :D
We are introduced to some characters which are at least named. One is a cop
There is a scene with two teenagers talking which reminds me of a teen movie, sigh. I do not understand why they are included but maybe I am not smart enough to get it. It felt like a failed version of a Scream movie.
A scene with a pizza delivery guy starts and he sees a girl. Unfortunately the scenes pass so fast so I am not sure what they have got to do with each-other other than that they are in the same movie. There is no way to get any connection to the characters since they are just there for a short time. This is worse than Alien Covenant.
A guy that is a father to a kid gets chestbursted but there was no introduction to him, his name, what he was about so I did not give a shit.
The lightning mostly sucks so I did not see a lot. Unfortunately they did a very bad job at this. I am not even sure why they filmed the scenes if we are not supposed to see what is happening.
When I was about twenty minutes into the movie I already thought "this sucks". I found myself looking around in the room like you do when you are at some lecture, meeting or what ever that you find totally boring. How much did the actors that were in this movie ruined their careers by being in this shit?
Half an hour into the movie the cop that is at least featured in the movie here and there gets a name, Eddie. Thanks for letting me know his name. ;) It seems to me that he was the only one that was featured frequently in the movie although I do not think that he was very well written.
A pregnant woman got something thrown into her by a predator at a hospital. That was just disgusting and did nothing for the movie what so ever, that was just, yuck.
In the end they try to leave town just like it was in a Resident Evil movie. The difference is that the characters in RE from 2004 were alright but this was crap. Yutani is featured in the last scene, as if that would make us happy. Fuck this movie, it is a piece of shit and is easily the worst one that is alien related so avoid it like rotten food.
I think you hit all the points there. I also thought parts reminded me of a spoiled teen Scream ripoff. Maybe we couldn't see the fighting since someone thought it would be a great idea to go for the "less is more" route.
Slagging AVPR just never seems to get old.
Caught this from a Den of Geeks article Chris referenced. Nice little sting how it summed up AVPR in one sentence:
Alien Vs Predator, directed by Paul WS Anderson in 2004, andAliens V Predator: Requiem, directed by the Strauss brothers in 2007. The former had a solid enough premise compromised by its PG-13 rating; the latter was brought low by its indifferent direction, bad-taste violence and a crew who apparently forgot to pay the electricity bill.
The Plot could have been workable.....
The Execution was Awful.... it was like one of those Sharnado kind of Flick Acting/Writing with Predators and Aliens thrown in.... Decent Effects, some ok Action Scenes but the Characters, the Acting and most of the Writing was Dreadful...
Watched it TWICE... and i dont think i could Watch it again!
R.I.P Sox 01/01/2006 - 11/10/2017
We are singing in harmony Thoughts_Dreams.
The best part about watching AVP Requiem is that Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome is now a great movie in comparison.
This movie makes me appreciate the original Alien and Predator movies even more.
"Part of the journey is the end..."
"… a crew who apparently forgot to pay the electricity bill."
LMAO! That is so well said, a lot of times it was difficult to see the characters because those that made the movie seemed to think that the less you see of everything the better it is. I like to use my imagination when I watch movies like this but that was just ridiculous.
