what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this violent sci-fi action sequel is loud and gory, with multiple exploding chests and heads; lots of mangling, penetrating, and acid-burning; bloody injuries; screaming children; and gross-out assaults. There's a bit of cleavage, a scene that lingers on a girl's skimpy-underwear-clad bottom, a bit of drinking, and references to being stoned. Language includes repeated "f--k"s, plus other profanity.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about what makes a movie scary. Why do some succeed, and some fail? How is this movie similar to and different from the franchises that it was spun off from? Do you think the aliens are meant to represent any specific threat in the real world? If so, what? Are they standing in for terrorists (as referenced in the film)?

2 stars

Possibly good action movie and gorefest was hammpered by poor acting and one of the worst visually shot films in decades. Way too dark and almost impossible to make anything out.

Okay, coming from a massive Alien predator fan, this film is 10 / 10 for action sequences and explosions and gore scenes. Storyline is somewhat another matter, it carry's on straight from the first film AVP, but it ties in the time line that consists of Predator 1 and 2, but not the Alien saga. At the end of AVPR the colonel handed over the predators gun to a lady called Miss YUTANI, who combined with Bishop Weyland, gives you the Company WEYLAND YUNTANI which is in Aliens, Ali3n and Alien Resurrection, the company that owns LV - 426 in aliens. AVPR Explains who Yutani is, cause in Aliens you don't know much about it apart from they have contract under the military. With AVPR Ending as it did, Hollwood could to take up on itself to remake Alien, which in someway can carry on from AVPR and connect all Alien and Predator films all in 1 exciting saga.
