    "Alien vs Predator" is, bluntly, a stupid movie. Two franchises collide, aliens feed off predators, predators hunt aliens, humans get stuck in the middle (of a teen horror flick), and the special effects are computer generated. Some people lap up that kind of stuff. And it is interesting (perhaps a little sad?) from the point of view of the earlier Alien and Predator films. Ridley Scott"s fussy model based special effects, art design and direction of "Alien" made it something special; "Aliens" had all the tension a horror movie could ever hope for; and watching Arnie charge around the jungle, distressed by the deaths of the other mercenaries, and pursued by a usually invisible, but occasionally dreadlocked, monster from out of space does have an appeal - something a little lacking from "Alien vs Predator". I thin "Alien vs Predator" goes wrong in two places. First, there is no Schwarzenegger or Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) for the audience to get behind, but only characterless monsters often obscured by shadows or blood. Second, the CGI does not live up to the special effects in, at least, "Alien", and the set has none of that films atmosphere - HR Geiger"s twisted visions disappear into suburban USA. And there is no dense Jungle either. (Oh, and the narrative is hard to identify, never mind follow with interest.) This leaves the film with no central human characters to focus the audience"s desires or any sense of place. For me, therefore, the film cannot work. With no where, who and when it doesn"t even become anywhere, anytime, anyone, but rather nowhere, never, no one. I think that the monster meets monster concept of this film is better suited to computer games where the gamer can lend there own character to it, and has more clearly defined interests in it - to survive: I the film I don"t think anyone cares who dies, as long as it is gory. But does an action film have to work as a piece of drama? Am I taking "Alien vs Predator" too seriously? I can"t really say, though I am absolutely sure this film does have an audience.
