Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (AVP 2) (2007)

Ingredients: an alien hunter with a dubious samurai code of honor and "get-rid-of-the-corpse" techniques from Nikita. Some Alien crap for the grinder. Their ugly, kitsch cross-breed that doesn't belong anywhere in this film. A side story cliché love affair just to keep the girlfriend of the sucker who paid for this movie from totally getting bored or disgusted. Not so sharp visuals. Awkward patchwork of "spotlights" from ALL previous A & P movies. Virtually non existent actors (for the grinder as well) in a non existent story. Silly situations and improbable mistakes. Despicable direction. Result?? The set example for how to, not only, slaughter two great franchises, but keep them alive just enough to produce a probably even worse movie in the future. The Same vs. Shame
