I am sure my line about lowering your expectations is getting old. After hearing from a couple of people that AvP was not that cool I lowered my expectations almost to none. One of the coolest things is that even at the end of the movie you really do not know who wins. Both monsters have the capabilities to just rip each other, even on a mano a mano battle.
The action was on a good level, and the effects were pretty cool. Nothing groundbreaking but it hit the spot. The lighting was a little dark, but I think Alien movies have always gone for that effect. The storyline had a couple of holes… for example the Predator movies have always centered on the hottest year in centuries… and this whole thing happens in a remote antartica location… but whatever I looked passed that.
If you have 10 bucks burning a hole in your pocket go see it in a theater, but I would wait for rental or the cheap theater if I was you.
