I actually enjoyed AVP: Requiem, I thought it was a very exciting movie with the Predator tracking the Aliens down and having to locate them methodically - like a detective - was very neat. The action scenes were good, the human characters were admittedly basic but the movie wasn't about them really. The Pred/Alien was just a nightmarish creation and with it's spawning ability it was an amazing 'villain' for the Predator to have to deal with. I even go back to the first AVP and still find myself grinning at how fun it is to see them two fighting it out.
I didn't really mind AVP requiem either my comment was more for skyline. I liked avp r for the points you mentioned, but the whole human element was just bad and the film was way too dark (couldn't see anything)
AvP Requiem was ****ing awful, imo. On the other hand, I thought the first AvP was decent.
