It seemed rather short to me as well, but it has a running time of 113 minutes. I also never got into the whole transforming pyramid, what was the purpose of that.[sm=smiley5.gif]

I finally saw the movie and wasn't terribly disappointed. The "truce" actually follows the storyline of the comic (remember, the entire idea of AvP was based on a comic book). What was horrible was that last 2 min of the movie *cough*chestbuster*cough*

Lets not forget other Alien movies. I don't remember which one it was but Ripley had one in her for almost the entire movie. It finally popped out as she jumped into the molten metal at the prison. So it has happend before.

Yes, but Ripley was dead and oh...no wait...she's not dead....then she's dead again and then oh wait..no she's a clone........WHAT?



Sorry, if there is one character from the entire Alien / Predator universe I can not stand it's her character...so played out and overdrawn..she was good int he first 2...then after that...change it up...

Man, I saw the movie last night and I still can't decide if I liked it or not. I hated the acting. I pretty much only liked Lance's performance. Of course I can't blame the actors 100%, the director has a lot to do with it. I find Paul Anderson to be hit or miss with his movies. The story from about three quarters to the end roughy follows the first Dark Horse mini-series. I don't like some of the "history" they wrote for the film. I thought that was a total crap cop-out. I am not a fan of the "new" Predator look. The new mandables don't look right to me. There was something about the CGI in this movie I didn't quite like either. Especially the parts at the end. IDK, just didn't look "right" to me. Again, I will have to see the movie again to really let it all sink in. Overall it's an OK movie. I do suggest seeing it. I've been a fan of AVP since I was little. I use to dream about this kind of movie. Always a fan of the Predator!

I remember hearing somewhere that the Alines were not CGI but actually puppets. I think I saw it on the making of it or something.

And I noticed something different about the Preadators but could't quite place it and now that you mention it they did look a bit off.

Ya, well, the Aliens are a mix of CGI, rubber suit, and animatronics. I could REALLY tell the CGI in this movie. It's hard for me to put it into words...I just can't put my finger on what it was about them actually. The mandables stuck out further on the "old" Predator. These new ones look flatter and as if they don't close as much. I'm just going with the fact that all people look a bit different, so I guess they can too. I still don't like it though.
