Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem ★½ 2007 (R)

In this sequel to the 2004 flick, the extraterrestrial beasties are cool and the humans are interchangeable incubators and fodder. A mutant alien-predator crash-lands near a small Colorado town and begins using convenient humans for procreation vessels and a super-Predator shows up to dispatch the new critters. The locals are collateral damage. Everything moves along at a snappy pace and there's some action pieces that are watchable, which means if you're a fan you probably won't be disappointed. 86m/C DVD. US Reiko Aylesworth, John Ortiz, Johnny Lewis, Ariel Gade, Steven Pasquale, Sam Trammell, Robert Joy; D: Colin Strause, Greg Strause; W: Shane Salerno; C: Daniel Pearl; M: Brian Tyler.
