Alien vs. Predator

Directed by Who Cares

I didn't expect much from this movie and that's exactly what I got. I won't bother describing the plot, since as you can imagine it's pretty irrelevent, but the movie is divided into three parts. The first part is the exposition part, where they introduce the characters and set the scene. Despite being cheesy as hell, this part wasn't too bad. It does a decent job of building tension before the main part of the movie.

The second part is the foighting. This part was pretty good too. There were lots of good action scenes, as you'd hope, and lots of cool shit, including the obligatory extended Alien vs. Predator one on one face off. I was more than satisfied with the movie up until here.

The last part was the climax, and that's where it all turned to shit. Huge huge plot holes, lame twists, and lackluster action scenes completely ruin the end of the movie. And there was even an incredibly contrived sequel set up. Great.
