Because Sci-Fi's "Showdown at Area 51" wasn't enough, The Asylum brings us another exciting rip-off in anticipation of "AVP R". Since the "Alien vs. Predator" sequel is set in a small American town, "Alien vs. Hunter" is set in a small American town. After some helicopter shots we're treated to a middle-aged man jogging, completely oblivious to a huge smoking object crashing behind him. From there we are introduced to an alien and a "hunter" and people die and run around and shoot at stuff.
This particular effort is punctuated by some nice derivative designs. The alien resembles Giger's "Alien" (except for the whole spider thing) and the hunter is a safe re-imagining of the "Predator". In this respect The Asylum have really outdone themselves. This kind of production design could really have helped them on movies like "Alien Abduction". A couple scenes, particularly the tunnel scene, make pretty good use of lighting and the wide aspect ratio. This scene suitably rips off "Alien 3".
The characters are a real low point, though. Our heroes have a few very superficial clichés that pass for character and they are played off one another in a way that makes you wish the monsters would win. There is some solace in watching people get killed off, but it was never the ones I really wanted dead. My favorite line is "Guys, we're on the ship and that totally sucks".
Rated an amazing 1.5 out of 10 on imdb, with almost 2000 votes, this is safely one of the worst movies ever released.
(Somehow this has been removed from the imdb bottom 100 list, but it should be tied for 4th worst or so based on votes.)
