    To be fair, the budget did balloon due to various issues (Like a giant set sinking into the ocean) but in all reality it eventually made money.

    Oh' yeah, it was a complete disaster from a production standpoint. IIRC, it was the most expensive movie ever made at one point. You best knock it out of the park with that reputation. Just saying that I think most of criticism comes from that, rather than the actual movie, which at worst is a pretty standard action-adventure flick that kind of ripped off "Mad Max" a little bit. It's a pretty solid, if not derivative popcorn flick, but you'd think it was the worst movie ever, right up there with "Battlefield Earth", the way it's talked about.

    cool
    the final shoot out is more tactically sound and accurate then even the bank shootout in Heat

    Haha. Yes, it is simply awful. I loved it as a kid. Now I love it because it's absolutely over the top corny.

    It's funny that were faster cars in my High School parking lot and a few kids who would have kicked the shit out of the bad guys.

    The Silver Corvette and the Yellow Firebird with the fake supercharger are iconic in their own ways.

    When it came out I said "This is the best movie of either franchise in the last 20 years'" and I still stand by that statement.

    But... exactly how high of praise is that? 'Oh, its better than Alien3, Predator2, and the first AvP movie.'

    So when I rewatch the movie, I purposely skip the scenes in which there's people NOT being massacred.

    Yes seriously, every scene in which there's people talking is horrible. The heart of this movie is a nest of Aliens VS a lone Predator, and the Pred-Alien was awesome.

    There's just so flippin many, it's totally over saturated. Loved all the Batman movies since Bale, love avengers and the spin offs. I can take or leave the rest pretty much. Sure there are some exceptions I can't think of.

    The big issue was when it was released I'd say, the same film 5 years earlier I think would have gone down much better but by the mid 90's CGI was in vogue whilst scrappy dystopian action with real sets were less so.

    If there was ever a film were the villainous characters carried it this is it, not even just the performances but the design work as well was I think you could argue as close as anyone had come to "cosmic" comics, arguably still better than anything DC have done with that side.
