I liked UA’s concept of an episodic Predator Darkhorse series.
The audio for both episodes was clear and well focused. No crinkly edits to my ears.
The video editing for both was likewise well done and smooth.
The second episode, Unexpected Visitors, was always the lesser of both theatrical releases. Uncanny Antman removed most of the teenagers and meaningless subplots. The story moves like a rocket, and was a blast to sit through.
I had problems with the first episode, Cold Comfort.
Confession, I liked the first AVP. A lot. If I could have been on set I would have argued to give the humans more firepower. AVP coulda / shoulda been a three way fight.
Antman removed most of the humans, and also a great deal of the narrative cohesion. Characters made a quick entrance, swift exit. What plot there was, was scant. The whole edit resembled a shooter arcade game
Enjoyed Episode 2, disliked Episode 1.
Professional job in editing, though, all the way. 8/10
The idea works nicely as two seperate comic book “episodes”, however I’d still like to see a combination edit that merges these two films into the one feature length movie it should have been. Remove all the pointless character study aspects and make it into a true Alien vs. Predator film with humans just being bystanders or victims to the battle between them. More of a movie from the POV of the predator maybe… (hmm, I think I just gave myself an idea for my own fanedit).
For this FanEdit though the editing quality was excellent and there were no noticeable techinal issues, but it still lacks some entertainment value for me to give this a 5 star rating. 4 stars overall, nice job thanks Antman!
