Visual effects specialists Greg and Colin Strause both make their feature directorial debut with this no-holds-barred monster mash that attempts to set itself apart from the 2004 Paul W.S. Anderson original by serving as a straight-up sci-fi horror scarefest. The aliens (and a predator) have landed on planet Earth, and small-town America is about to become the scene of an epic interstellar showdown. As these two breeds of cosmic killers clash in the small-town streets Gunnison, CO, the locals are sent running for their lives. From the murky sewers to the rain-soaked streets, Gunnison has… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Scriptwriter Shane Salerno's dialogue is unspeakable, the visceral horror all too familiar, and the ideas distinctly second-hand."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"Chopped down to 40 minutes, this could be a wickedly cool short; as is, it's a passable slasher that's still nowhere near the interspecies smackdown we geeks have long imagined."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, L.A. Weekly
"If this is what the future holds for both franchises, then today's youngsters are welcome to it."
‑ Ali Gray,
" utterly needless sequel that's sure to disappoint fans of both franchises..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Does Alien vs. Predator: Requiem spell the end of the dual-monster franchise? Let's hope so"
‑ Christian Toto, Washington Times
"Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem is a B movie that truly earns its B."
‑ Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
"Ho, ho, ho -- the joke's on anyone who pays to see this."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Aliens VS Predator - Requiem is the second film in the over hyped and under performing crossover series, which brings nothing new to the table while tarnishing the franchises' original films."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"Well, it's official: the Road to Hell is pretty much paved over ... the Strause Brothers ... expressed their [good] intention to return to the dark, scary tone of 1979's Alien, yet Requiem is just about as bad as its 2004 predecessor."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"i want more aliens fewer people!"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson,
"The door is left open for another sequel; if someone would kindly shut it and board it up, that would be much appreciated."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"Occasionally, the filmmakers reveal a cheeky willingness to upend genre conventions, particularly when bending the rules regarding who lives and who dies in this sort of pic."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"In a word, repugnant."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"Too underlit to qualify as splatter, too bloodless to qualify as fun, too unaware of its own idiocy to be enjoyed Grindhouse-style, AvP:R is a real education in the finer stratifications of badness."
‑ Jurgen Fauth,
"Well, there's not much to see here. And I mean that literally."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
