I watched this today and, overall, I dug it. The first Alien vs. Predator flick will always suck as long as Lex teams up with Scar at the end. Unfortunately, that ending still exists in Cold Comfort, episode 1 of Predator Chronicles. I see no way that Uncanny Antman could’ve edited that out without having a severely choppy, non-sensical ending. The fault lies not with UA but with the source material. Other than that, he’s cut out a lot of shit and made the running time shorter and that’s always welcome. I can’t say that I like this movie now (like I could of Terminator 3 after UA’s cut) but I didn’t feel the need to bash my brains in either, so fair enough. As for Unexpected Visitors, episode 2 (or Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem), I actually liked the original movie but UA cut out all the little annoying things that brought the movie down. I love the new brighter photography and the axeing of the teen angst crap. But, I also missed some of the gorier moments that UA had to cut to make this version work. All in all, not Uncanny Antman’s best work but a good time nonetheless.
