With the weight of expectation from the fans of two successful franchises Aliens vs Predator had a lot to live up to. For many it was a huge disappointment. It's fair to say it got a critical savaging on it's cinema run. And as a horror movie it is poor, but seen as purely an action film it's actually a lot of fun. It doesn't lag and doesn't outstay it's welcome. It's a good romp and a pleasant way to spend an hour and a half. A film like this has a natural home on DVD and for Sci-Fi and comic book aficionados this is definitely a good addition to the collection. It's difficult to recommend this two disc package over the single disc though, unless you're a big fan, as the extras on the second disc really aren't that remarkable. And there's nothing 'extreme' about it!
