New in theaters Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (R)
After five Alien movies and three Predator films, a requiem is overdue. This time Alien larvae get out of their tanks on a Predator spaceship and kill the crew. When the ship slams into a Colorado mountainside, many beasties survive to terrorize the countryside. A damage-control specialist from the Predators' home planet arrives to exterminate the Aliens and wipe out evidence that they were ever there. Inexplicably, when the Predator kills humans who get in the way, he leaves the most spectacular evidence imaginable. The film's production values are good, but the goings-on are laughable, if not downright boring. Grade: – M.K. Terrell
