Best first comment I’ve read in a while
October 25, 2013 at 8:42 pm
Excellent review, this was indeed a POS. ^_^
The characters utterly disposable, like, “why the fuck am I watching this crap? get tot he ALIENS already!”
Still, it would be nice to see more match-ups like this. Even badly done, I’d pay to go see another sequel.
October 25, 2013 at 10:56 pm
You know what one problem this and the other AVP suffered from? Think about all the games, and one thing they have that neither of the AVP movies have that the games, and most comics have. COLONIAL MARINES! We don’t want to see scientists and kids fighting aliens and predators, we want Marines to kick some ass……and get killed too. 🙂
October 25, 2013 at 1:27 am
i’m first and this is the last alien movie for now.

You kids really need to get yourselves a fuckin’ hobby.
October 26, 2013 at 1:59 am
Dude, seriously. I’ll never understand this “first” fascination.
October 26, 2013 at 1:34 pm
i wouldnt blame james for shutting down monster madness because you people wont stop complaining about first comments. just leave them alone and comment on the review. be bigger and ignore it.
October 25, 2013 at 2:13 am
Are you 12 years old or something?
October 25, 2013 at 3:27 am
Lol fail, Great video, never saw this crap fest.
WAHA I COMMENT CAUSE I’M COOL
October 25, 2013 at 1:32 am
No mention of Miss Yutani at the end of the film?
I thought that would deserve at least a passing mention.
October 25, 2013 at 1:38 am
James definitely put this film on its place. I know what you shit last summer ROFL
October 25, 2013 at 1:44 am
James, you’re NUTS! AvP 2 was WAAAYYYY better than the first one and better than Predator 2, Alien 3 and 4… They also try to give continuity as well with them having the predator weapon at the end… Maybe you should watch it again if you just did this review off of memory and didn’t recently watch it…
October 25, 2013 at 2:28 am
I just watched AVP 2. Let me assure you that watching it recently doesn’t make it any better, in fact it just makes me remember how bad it is that much more clearly. It’s by far the worst movie in either the Alien or Predator series. Its so bad I started bitching about this movie in the AVP 1 video comments. I really hate agreeing with the consensus of movie haters out there. I see a lot of movies I enjoy that everyone hated, but this is one time they got it right, its THAT bad.
I’d rather have an alien barf diarrhea up my nose for 3 days than watch this steaming pile of predator crap that was somehow mistaken for a movie.
October 25, 2013 at 2:36 am
Or more likely it’s the other way around considering he watches these movies especially for this review (he even mentioned that during the AvP review) and you probably haven’t seen it in awhile
October 25, 2013 at 3:14 am
Are YOU nuts? AvP2 is awful. Like, just plain awful. It is worse than any of the movies you mentioned. Hell, this is one of the worst movies period.
The only good thing about it was the very first shot where the Predalien bursts out.
October 25, 2013 at 5:40 am
i think the majority would agree with me this is by far one of the worst movies ever made. It has bad actors, shit plot, fighting scenes so dark that u cant see whats happening
October 25, 2013 at 5:42 am
i think the majority would agree with him this is by far one of the worst movies ever made. It has bad actors, shit plot, fighting scenes so dark that u cant see whats happening
October 25, 2013 at 7:45 am
Or it’s entirely possible maybe you just have poor taste, because Predator 2 is a great film, and no matter how bad Alien 3 and 4 are, they’re STILL better than both AvP movies. And no, there is no “continuity” to speak of, as in, these movies do not “count” towards either respective series.
October 25, 2013 at 11:10 am
AVP 2 was awful, just because he has a different opinion doesn’t mean he needs to go watch it again ya jackass zombie bob-omb
October 25, 2013 at 3:38 pm
It’s called opinion. Besides, AVP-R was actually hated more than AVP. I can see why people hate these movies, but like James said, the best parts of these films are the Alien and Predator scenes. So I guess you can consider these films as guilty pleasures.
October 26, 2013 at 12:31 am
actually it depends on how you like your movies. if awesome brutal violence and a kickass armada of aliens, a predalien and a predator is wat you seek then yeah its better, but if u seek better characters, less horror cliches and a decent story line then AVP is better…. but i agree i like AVPR better 🙂
October 30, 2013 at 3:45 pm
I still haven’t seen Requiem. I thought the first AVP was ok. But one of the problems I had with these VS movies were the people. We watch these for Freddy, Jason, Alien, and Predator’s battles. I couldn’t care less about the people. I just wanted all the people to be killed off so we could see them fight without interference.
October 25, 2013 at 1:46 am
I didn’t think AVP was all that bad. It was cheesy and cliche, but it delivered everything that was hoping for which was straight up action between Alien and Predator. AVPR, on the other hand, was very disappointing. Firstly, the most obvious issue was that it was way too dark. I know they were trying for, which was the fear of not knowing where the Aliens were coming from, but it just didn’t work as I can’t see shit half the time. Even if it wasn’t too dark, I didn’t really like how they added the “horror” element to it. Like James said, the characters were way too cliche and make them annoying as shit. You didn’t care about any of the characters. I would have actually preferred if they kept it more of an “Action/Sci-fi” movie.
October 25, 2013 at 1:48 am
I liked this one a bit better than the first, but it does have sort of a b movie feel with horrible human characters in it. So, next we shall resurrect the dead you say? The evil variety perhaps?
October 25, 2013 at 1:51 am
I wish i had never seen this movie. Too much baby/kid killing for my taste. Also, they kill off like every character so you’re not sure who’s the hero. I’d rather watch the first avp a million times in a row than watch AVPR again
October 25, 2013 at 2:00 am
Another monster madness and all I want is a Bram Stoker’s Dracula review. Come on, James. We know you want to do it! What’s taking you so long?!
Where is Predators in this , the prequel / sequel to Predators 2 ? in my book that should have been in this item .
October 25, 2013 at 2:05 am
So Im guessing tomorrow starts the Romero Living Dead series
Was really hoping for Friday the 13th, wondering when that will happen
October 25, 2013 at 11:51 am
This was the perfect year to talk about Friday the 13 (2013), but., oh well, it’s time for George A. Romero.
October 25, 2013 at 2:34 am
Ironic that the main complaint you heard about the first Alien vs Predator movie was that it was PG-13. Then they make the sequel R, and it still turns out to be worse than the first.
Goes to show you that the rating has little to nothing to do with whether a movie is good, or if it sucks.
October 25, 2013 at 2:38 am
James, Alien VS Predator 3 was realeased as a video game on 2012. It’s actually pretty cool. I’m guessing you already heard of it, but I just wanted to say it.
October 25, 2013 at 3:53 am
What’s the point of that? The AvP franchise already have somewhere around 10 good games made. I didn’t think a movie licence game was needed…
It’s a game based on a movie based on a game based on a comic based on two movies >.<
October 25, 2013 at 3:16 am
Though I agree the human acting was bad, I just loved the vs battles. Same goes for AVP.
October 25, 2013 at 3:36 am
I just watched this for the first time, to prepare for this review. ive had the dvd of this movie for awhile but never watched it. yeah, it was pretty meh. first AvP was better.
hmm, tomorrow we raise the dead huh? well, you have 6 days left. im guessing the Romero movies? Night, Dawn, Day, Land, Diary, Survival. That is 6 movies.
October 25, 2013 at 3:51 am
I really thought he’d touch on the liberties they took with the xenomorph itself. It’s like the creators of this one didn’t even see any of the past movies at all.
There’s a scene where it tries to reproduce… by biting a woman’s face, sticking a tube down her throat to her uterus (apparently they don’t know anything about human anatomy either) and implant several eggs there…
Some defend this by saying “but the Ripley/Xeno hybrid changed reproduction method”… Yeah, and that was a hybridized clone of a queen, tampered genetically by scientists. The predalien is a naturally born alien and not even a queen at that.
October 25, 2013 at 4:19 am
yea its really sad they kept going with this. They should have ended this series after alien 3 and after predator 2. Its messed up how many movie franchises get ruined cause of money hungry assholes
October 25, 2013 at 4:42 am
The best part of this entire movie, is when you don’t expect the blonde girl to die, and then BOOOOM! The Predator pins her to the fuckin wall with his shuriken. Total badassery.
……and that was it. The only other good part was when they kinda showed the Predator home world for a few seconds.
The rest…was shit. *AVGN Scrunchy face*
October 25, 2013 at 4:54 am
so much crap in the coment section. poor James
October 25, 2013 at 5:39 am
“I Know What You Shit Last Summer”, LOL!
Short, nice review.. One would think, You didn’t spoil the plot that way, but You actually said everything there is! lol.. So You gonna switch to some zombie movies now.. Ok i guess.. but since You touched both predator movies inside these reviews I was HOPING, You would say at least couple of words about “Predators (2010)”……. The movie is still not the greatest and has thousands of flaws, but it’s a MASTERPIECE compared to both AVPs, fun to watch and one of the better movies of what they are offering in Alien and Predator franchises lately.
October 25, 2013 at 5:43 am
So far my favorite thing Alien vs Predator was the arcade game itself, great beat em up! Hey Check out my GTA 5 video Mike ( Bails, Fails and more )
October 25, 2013 at 5:49 am
I thought you’d mention pregnat woman scene.
October 25, 2013 at 6:42 am
Most films that include “Requiem” or “Resurrection” in their title usually suck..
October 25, 2013 at 6:54 am
Not going to work Predators (2010) in somewhere? This part of sequel-athon pretty much covered the the first 2 parts of the Predator trilogy anyway.
October 25, 2013 at 6:55 am
I wanna say the Romero zombies films are gonna be next.
October 25, 2013 at 3:01 pm
It HAS to be, haha.
October 26, 2013 at 9:45 am
I called it haha!!!
October 25, 2013 at 7:01 am
Oh shit! I hope he goes into George Romero’s Dead series!
But seriously, I’m surprised he didn’t talk about the pregnant chick in this movie, considering he’s a father now and everything. That part of the movie where she gets implanted and then the alien triplets bursting out just literally makes me ill to watch…and that is NOT hyperbole.
October 25, 2013 at 7:03 am
What about Predators
October 25, 2013 at 7:23 am
This was an Alien series review, he only touched on Predator 1 at the start of his AvP 1 review.
October 25, 2013 at 7:32 am
Im hoping its the George Romero zombie films James is reviewing next but I suspect by his quote that its the Evil Dead franchise. If its the latter I’d be interested to hear his thoughts on the reboot, I personally didnt like it.
October 25, 2013 at 7:52 am
I’m not sure there was anything TO like about it, so don’t feel bad.
October 25, 2013 at 7:42 am
The stupidest thing about this movie is that Predator lore states that the Yautja (predators) lived in the same planet as the aliens, that’s why they evolved that weird mouth with four claws that they have, to defend themselves against facehuggers, so the movie already starts with bullshit, Yautjas can’t be impregnated by aliens, that’s why they needed humans to make them reproduce and hunt them.
October 25, 2013 at 7:51 am
No offense, but where exactly is this “Predator lore” from? Certainly not from the two main movie series. So I take it it’s from the Dark Horse comics or something like that then. And in that case, it’s really hardly legible as source material. Outside of these god awful AvP films, the MAIN movie franchises have never established any actual relationship or connection between the Xenos and the Predators, whatsoever. And that includes Prometheus.
October 25, 2013 at 8:09 am
The AvP comics can hardly be legible as source material for the AvP movies? AvP first appeared as the comic series, so I take it that the comics must be the source material, and not the original movies. Because, you know, they have nothing to do with each other, except for the lore created in the comics.
October 25, 2013 at 7:46 am
Anyone else having trouble posting a response to this review? I’ve tried a couple of times now, and they aren’t showing up. If i respond to someone else’s response, though, it works.
October 25, 2013 at 7:47 am
Hmm, that one worked. Weird. Anyways, AVP:R.
There are 2 things worthwhile in this movie, Kristen Hager’s ass, and Kristen Hager’s totally unexpected death. It really hammered home how little the humans mattered to the Alien/Predator situation.
All that being said, this is probably the worst movie i ever paid money to see in the theatre. Sad that a series that started with 2 genre-setting landmarks of cinema ended with THIS.
October 25, 2013 at 7:49 am
Well, I’m surprised that you told so little about this movie. You just mentioned that there are humans, aliens, predators, gore, and that this movie is bad. I sure hate all the teenage bullcrap in it, but there was at least few nice ideas here. After first half of hour, it gets quite good.
Btw, you mentioned continuity errors with other movies, what did you mean by that?
October 25, 2013 at 8:02 am
I’d love to see an Alien vs. Predator vs. The Thing movie, The Thing would probably be the most dangerous thing in existence if it manages to absorb both Alien (different hybrids) and Predator DNA and mix them together with spiders, humans and other animals
October 25, 2013 at 8:13 am
I only saw that one once. Frankly at the end of it I thought…..not THAT bad. WAY better than AvP (made by douchebag filmmaker #1). But I’ve never had any desire at all to see it again. 100% forgettable.
October 25, 2013 at 8:33 am
I actually liked both movies but James is right the films focus more on the humans that on the Predator and the Aliens, in was ok in the Predator and Alien stand alone films but here it makes the movies seem boring.
Sadly they seem to do this a lot one example was transformers, i liked the films but the third one focused so much on the humans that it was really boring
October 25, 2013 at 8:50 am
Great video! Can’t wait to see what’s next. Thanks!
October 25, 2013 at 9:00 am
I love the video url: /alien-vs-predator-requiem-2007-get-out-your-barf-bags/
October 25, 2013 at 9:20 am
Eh, I have to disagree with this review. I felt that this movie was a lot better than AvP because it delivered more of what the people wanted: aliens versus predators with some hapless humans thrown in the mix. To me, the fact that they had finally brought the battle to Earth was a major selling point, and the fact that it had more action and not just a lot of running away as in the first AvP movie. Yes, if the Xenomorphs made it to our planet (something that “we” have been trying to stop them from doing all along), there would be a lot of bloodshed and gore. I mean, look at Predator. That wasn’t exactly a clean movie. I also like the fact that no one (babies and kids) was safe and “up for grabs”. You think an Xeno would care how old you are? This is a “Versus” movie that delivers. Yes, the humans were bland, but you’re not supposed to be focusing on the humans. You should be there to see the titular beasties duke it out. And boy, do they ever! And yes, it doesn’t have much suspense and continuity between the Alien franchise, but again, it’s a movie about two bloodthirsty species waging war with us caught in the middle. All you need to explain is how they got face to face and let ’em at it.
October 25, 2013 at 9:54 am
It would have been great fun to watch the Alien fight the Predator… IF YOU COULD EVEN SEE THE FIGHTS. They were shot way too damned dark. Very frustrating in the theatre.
October 25, 2013 at 9:28 am
Between the two AVP movies I prefer this one. It doesn’t have as much dumb stuff ie teenage predators, weird alien resurrection styled xenomorphs, predator sledding, etc. etc. nor does it have the weird half-assed SciFi junk. It’s straight horror/action, with some ‘B Movie’ style homage, which is much closer to what I wanted to see the first time around.
October 25, 2013 at 9:30 am
You must’ve eaten corn last summer.
October 25, 2013 at 9:48 am
I wasted good money to see this..And the sad shit is…I fell asleep halfway into this shit fest.
October 25, 2013 at 10:16 am
I didn’t realized Alien series went that much downhill. I think you’re doing George A. Romero’s zombie movies next. Some of them are great movies. After Land of the Dead that’s where it sucks. It’s a shame too considering these are good movies.
October 25, 2013 at 10:42 am
Im going out to say I actually enjoyed both these movies. In the second one I distinctly remember noticing how they killed off all the annoying teen douches and only really the predator was left at the end of the 2nd.
The first I thought was actually great.
Im surprised you didnt mention the pred-alien putting its eggs in the prego woman… .that was like a pinnacle scene to show how vicious these really were.
even the predator would have thought twice on that.
October 25, 2013 at 10:45 am
We all know what the next movie is going to be… it’s going to be named “Alien”, it’s going to be a direct rehash of the first movie full of fancy CGI but lacking everything that made the original great.
October 25, 2013 at 11:43 am
Sadly you are PROBABLY RIGHT.
October 25, 2013 at 11:24 am
you should do a monstermadness on Phantasm
October 25, 2013 at 11:49 am
yeah i agree fully, movie disappointed me so much
and yeah if only they made a movie with a 2 hour battle of them going at each other
October 25, 2013 at 11:55 am
I’m dissapointed that Friday the 13th it’s not gonna happend this October 🙁
Coming up next……. George A. Romero’s zombie movies?, or Evil Dead Series? 🙂
October 25, 2013 at 12:07 pm
I was expecting a lot of this review, because it sucks a lot, so you have a lot of fun material. But it was too short :/
BTW, the predator in this movie is just goofing around, it doesn´t have any importance to the story
October 25, 2013 at 12:28 pm
video wont work
October 25, 2013 at 12:45 pm
I don’t want October to end! Love these videos!
October 25, 2013 at 1:13 pm
sadly this was the first alien movie I saw, thats why I was never interested in the others
October 25, 2013 at 1:24 pm
Full Moon is making Gingerdead Man vs. Evil Bong.
Not the most requested crossover film idea, but I’ll take it!
October 25, 2013 at 1:32 pm
This movie was basically about humans trying to survive the aliens with a predator that also showed up. It should have been called “Alien vs Humans and also a Predator”.
October 25, 2013 at 1:44 pm
Romero’s dead movies must be next.
There are six of them, and six days in the month left.
That means the final film of the month will be Survival of the Dead.
Man, that’s a pretty shitty way to go out.
October 25, 2013 at 3:18 pm
Agreed, that’s exactly what I thought after James’ comment!
October 25, 2013 at 4:43 pm
This finally gives me an excuse to finally watch Survival of the Dead. I have had it on DVD since it came out, but just have never felt compelled to watch it.
October 25, 2013 at 2:21 pm
Any guesses on tommorrow?
October 25, 2013 at 3:14 pm
So, i guess the last will, hopefully, be the Romero Dead Series.
October 25, 2013 at 3:50 pm
Dang, I was really hoping for Friday the 13th to be the last one. Oh well.
October 25, 2013 at 3:54 pm
I thought the movie was okay I don’t see why he called it a complete shit compared to AVP
It’s nice that he’s going to end it with a real Halloween Series about Zombies.
October 25, 2013 at 4:57 pm
It takes a special kinda movie to make AvP look GOOD. The fact that AvP:R did that is all you can say about how bad it was. The series started with 2 bonafide cinematic classics, and then steadily went down hill. Alien 3 was worse then the first 2, Alien Resurrection was worse then Alien 3, AVP was worse then all of the above, and AVP:R takes the cake.
October 25, 2013 at 4:12 pm
October 25, 2013 at 4:26 pm
Nailed my thoughts way back in the mid/late 90s when I first saw the Todd Mcfarlane Movie Maniacs line put out an epic set with Alien VS Predator and me an my friends started wondering what if that was a movie. We all pretty much agreed it never could be since there would be no dialogue. Subtitles maybe? Who wants to see that movie? Also Requiem takes place in my home town and I want to apologize and just tell you all that we get bears and coyotes and combat-hardened squirrels all the time but not a lot of xenomorphs bursting out of any of them. Though imagine that, what would an alien that burst out of cow be like? Would it just graze and pollute the ozone layer with toxic flatulence? All I know is it would bring the whole aliens mutilating cows thing full-circle and that’s a story I sorely need to see before I die.
October 25, 2013 at 4:54 pm
Probably a good thing I never really watched past the 3rd movie.
October 25, 2013 at 5:28 pm
Yea this one, this was the worst. I liked AvP, then saw this.. ugh…. by that I mean the movies.
October 25, 2013 at 5:43 pm
but what about Predators (2010)? also known as Predator 3
October 25, 2013 at 6:52 pm
This is an ALIEN series review. PREDATORS is a PREDATOR movie.
October 25, 2013 at 6:05 pm
this movie is not that bad.. im suprised you skipped over the part where they kill the kid in the woods or something probly the most gory part..
October 25, 2013 at 6:10 pm
He’s doing the night of the living dead series next I know it
October 25, 2013 at 6:24 pm
You know what I think? Just Aliens vs Pretators may be just a video game concept. At least so think Hollywood. And hey, we’ve got 2 PC games already on the subject. Ok, maybe not, marines are still a playing part.
October 25, 2013 at 6:54 pm
this movie is shit, pure, unfiltered shit.
October 25, 2013 at 6:56 pm
if all human characters was removed, this movie could be watchable.
October 25, 2013 at 7:00 pm
I dunno man, the parts without humans is filmed SO dark, i’m still not sure you could actually see anything! Lotsa animals screaming at each other.
October 25, 2013 at 7:18 pm
I’m the only one having problems these days while watching videos on cinemassacre? Like image stuttering and long buffering?
October 25, 2013 at 7:31 pm
Yep, same problem here. Sometimes it’s so frustrating I have to go to youtube.
October 25, 2013 at 7:33 pm
I have a guess for the next series. How about Child’s Play? There’s some resurrection there. Also was made after Alien which Night of the Living Dead wasn’t. I’m assuming there’s chronology here. Still flabbergasted it’s not Friday the 13th.
October 25, 2013 at 7:51 pm
I noticed that the video title is Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem (2007), but the film name is actually AlienS vs. Predator: Requiem. In reference I think to the film Aliens, also a second part.
October 25, 2013 at 8:19 pm
“The Characters […] I hated everyone of them” and ” I know what ou shit last summer”!!
I love you James – expressing so truely what I thought all these years… Never before in history of cinema did a franchise pass off in such a fucking shitstorm of stupidity! Hollywood – back to the roots with ya! Don’t fuck around with stupid sequels anymore – we need fresh ideas and no more merchandise!
October 25, 2013 at 8:44 pm
And i’m still sitting here waiting for “Robocop vs Terminator”… Seriously, they could have done a movie with the first scripts; that ones that inspired comic books, games, toys etc…
October 25, 2013 at 8:45 pm
This has to be one of the WORST movies ever made!!! Great reviews James keep them coming! 😀
