Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, Alien vs. Predator follows billionaire Charles Bishop Weyland (Lance Henriksen) and his team of drillers, scientists, and archaeologists, to an obscure pyramid site in Antarctica. Among the icy ruins, allegedly, lies the proof of an empire predating humankind. Once there, however, the group finds more than ancient sarcophaguses and hieroglyphics; rather, their discovery consists of dismembered human skeletons and fossilized remains of the alien creatures that appear to have violently burst out of their chests. Even more horrifying is the evidence suggesting that the aliens may still exist. Indeed, there are aliens below the pyramids, but an equal threat looms above: three Predators, all on the verge of manhood, are engaged in a gruesome rite of passage -- every hundred years, young Predators must travel to Earth and take on a hunting ritual in order to complete the transition to adulthood or die in the process. Before long, the humans find themselves battling for their own lives as the Predators and aliens continue their fight for superiority. The film also features Sanaa Lathan, Raoul Bova, Ewen Bremmer, Colin Salmon, and Agathe de la Boulaye.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
These brawling beasties give new meaning to the phrase "celebrity smackdown" while melding the two Hollywood franchises -- already videogame costars -- on film for the first time. In this corner we have Aliens, the snarling, slimy creatures that gave Sigourney Weaver countless bad days in the Alien films. In the opposite corner we have heavily armored extraterrestrial Predators, one of whom matched wits and muscles with Arnold Schwarzenegger in one of the most memorable sci-fi action films of the '80s. As this film's story has it, a group of Predators is deliberately breeding Aliens within a pyramid-like, Aztec-cum-Cambodian compound beneath the Antarctic ice, using captured humans to incubate them in the familiar stomach-stretching manner. Why? For sport, of course. But the thrill of the hunt is lost on the human explorers who get caught in the middle of this centuries-old grudge match after penetrating the underground lair. The Predators, whom one critic likened to "Rasta samurai," have a clear technological edge over the slime-spewing Aliens, but we're not prepared to place any bets on who'll win. Despite the in-dead-earnest performances of the cast -- which includes Lance Henriksen as the billionaire industrialist leading the humans, and gorgeous Sanaa Lathan as one of the scientists -- Alien Vs. Predator is about as silly a monster movie as we've seen since King Kong Vs. Godzilla. But it is fun, moves briskly, and provides all the thrills and chills one expects from that sort of movie. Don't ask too many questions; just go with the flow and you'll have a good time with this one.
