*** Those who hate the movie hate it for the needless gore, the poor lighting, the Aliens non-sensical behaviour and violation of pretty much everything we've ever learned about them, them getting slaughtered by a single Predator, and the glee the movie seems to take in averting InfantImmortality.

The second film is still considered quite bad, its more like 60 to 70% hate it than an equal division.
* LoveItOrHateIt: While the first film is somewhat well-liked nowadays, the second is ''incredibly'' divisive.

* LoveItOrHateIt: While the first film is somewhat well-liked nowadays, nowadays being merely considered mediocre at worst with fans deriding the lore breaking content (sped up life-cycle for example) the second is ''incredibly'' divisive.still mostly hated, with few fans liking the movie which was even more lore breaking than the first film, adding a competely new life-cycle that was unnecessary.

*FanPreferredPairing: [[InterspeciesRomance Scar/Lex]] is probably the only ship with any significant number of fans to have emerged from the AVP movies. Hell, the producers even said they imagined Scar as a "romantic leading man".

Critical reception has warmed a decent amount to both films.
* LoveItOrHateIt: Especially the first film, as the second is almost universally loathed.

* BadassDecay: This has been happening awhile give or take but ''Requiem'' reduced them to cannon fodder, any kills they made where simply RedShirts.

** [[FinalGirl Lex]] from the first film is especially hated, often being cited as one of the worst characters of both series. * LoveItOrHateIt: Especially the first film, as the second is almost universally loathed.

** However, some people liked the greater focus on the monster action and gore. * SoBadItsGood: For those who don't simply hate both films.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: ** At one point in ''Requiem'', The Predalien and several facehuggers attack a group of homeless people living in the sewers. One of these people had ''a dog''. In ''Alien 3'', it is revealed that a facehugger impregnating a four-legged animal, such as a dog or an ox, would produce a quadrupedal variation of the Xenomorph known as "The Runner". If one of those facehuggers attached itself to the dog instead of one of the homeless people, we could have had the chance to see ''two'' powerful Xenomorph hybrids in the same movie.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: The alien nicknamed "Grid" (because of the grid pattern on its head caused by a predator's net) has become very popular among people who have seen the 2004 [=AvP=] film because it seems to be an exceptionally intelligent and formidable alien warrior. In its very first appearance, Grid kills ''two'' Predators on its own, immediately establishing itself as a {{Badass}}. It also manages to dodge being blasted by a predator's shoulder-cannon, and it's seen leading other aliens into battle. Even people who didn't like the film admit that Grid was pretty damn cool.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The first film was unusually well received in Spain and other European countries. The second one, on the other hand, not so much.

** [[FinalGirl Lex]] from the first film is especially hated, often being cited as one of the absolute worst characters of both series. * SoBadItsGood: The films, for those who don't simply hate them. ** In a case of GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff, the first film was loved in Spain. The second one, on the other hand, not so much. * SpecialEffectsFailure: Actually, more of a Lighting Failure. The suits for ''AVP: Requiem'' are fantastic... unfortunately, the film is so darkly lit that you can't see them.

* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: For some. The second movie had a greater focus on the monster action and gore than the first, which was one of the main complaints fans had about the first. Whether this makes it better or worse, of course, is entirely subjective.

** Same goes with [[spoiler: Wolf]] in the second film, as some people wished he would've avoided the status quo of [[spoiler: killing the Predator]] thanks to putting up one hell of a fight.

* BaseBreaker: The two groups split more or less on these issues when it comes to the second movie: ** Those who like the movie like it for its action scenes, increased gore, badass Predator and horror elements. ** Those who hate the movie hate it for the needless gore, the poor lighting, the Aliens non-sensical behaviour and violation of pretty much everything we've ever learned about them, them getting slaughtered by a single Predator and the glee the movie seems to take in averting InfantImmortality.

** There are plenty of people that enjoyed the first one though (and some for the second).
