Let the games begin!!! On your right is writer/director Paul W.S Anderson, and to your left is every critic in the world. In the previous battle Anderson one with a knock-out with his Alien vs Predator pulling in over $70 million at the box office -- but make no mistake, this time the critics will be hitting twice as hard... Taking into account that Aint it Cool News makes it no secret that they despise all of Paul W.S. Anderson's work, they posted an extremely long (negative) script review for 20th Century Fox's Alien vs. Predator II, which will hit theaters August 10th, 2007. Read on for a blurb from the massive review, which pretty much sums it up in one paragraph...
From an excerpt on Aint it Cool News:
"Taking all the decent work into consideration, it's catastrophic. It's really that bad a script. If fans don't already feel like whipped dogs, they will by the end of this, and the sad thing is, they'll buy just enough tickets to guarantee Fox makes another one of these, if only for DVD, in the future. Because it's so cold and crass and calculating, so pointless a retread of the work of the genuine talents involved in the franchises previously, this is the one that feels like the stake in the heart of both properties. This is the announcement that they're not remotely interested in continuing the films in a way that expands the great work that already exists. It's creatively bankrupt in a way designed to take the least effort for a return. It's a bitter pill to swallow, having to kiss off both franchises for the time being, and all I can hope is that there's a genuine rebirth later. This certainly isn't it..."
