Alien loves Predator

While in Stockholm we went to the premiere of Alien vs Predator. I have been looking forward to this movie ever since that alien skull was included in the spaceship trophy room in Predator 2, fourteen years ago (gasp, am I really that old?). But it was not an alien movie, nor a predator movie. It was something weird in-between. That is not a good thing.

However, to see a predator taking down aliens with his shoulder-mounted grenade thrower is worth the ticket admission fee on its own. Here’s my full review.

Most impressive: The guy who was asleep during the loud end credits. Respect, man.

Least impressive: The soft Predator who befriended a puny human. Expel him from the order!

For another take on the whole AvP hype, have a look at the hilarious daily comic strip Alien loves Predator.

    The movie actually wasn’t that bad compared to the later junk in the series (including the Predator movies) and the overall drop in movie quality in the last decade. The comic was great but was sadly discontinued in 2011.
