I was surprised at how good this outing is. First week out, it topped the box office with $38 million in sales. Writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson ("Event Horizon," "Mortal Combat," and "Resident Evil") has given us a truly action filled thriller.

The first 45 minutes is a wonderful set up for the action that follows. As the film opens, satellites detect a large pyramid structure hidden deep beneath the ice in Antarctica. Industrialist Charles Weyland (Lance Henriksen), powerful head of Weyland Industries mounts a hurried expedition to reach the site. Alexa Woods (Sanaa Lathan), an expert Artic guide, heads the expedition that is lured into a trap by the Aliens.

The movie has plenty of creepy stuff and fast action. The Preditors arrive and all hell breaks loose. The Pyramid shifts shape every 10 minutes. The Aliens and Predators are great monsters and energize this film. After many action packed battle scenes, a giant Alien Queen gets into the fight and proves a worthy rival to both the humans and Preditors.
