    Aliens vs Predator: Requiem

    ★★

    I enjoyed the first Alien vs. Predator a lot, but I just never got around to seeing the sequel until now. The CSI Predator was cool, and the action between him and the Xenos was decent.

Yes, a new actor is playing Max, but this isn't a reboot. It's definitely a sequel. Think of it as a relaunch; it reintroduces Max for a new generation in a way that stays connected to what came before, but paves the way for future films.

    Sticking to what worked the first time…
