While we certainly had some fun
with the original Aliens vs. Predator Blu-ray Disc at CES, The Man Room
was able to get their paws around the sequel a fortnight or so before its official release. Irrespective of your views on the plot itself, reviewers found that the 1080p AVC-encoded transfer managed to "successfully hold onto detail even in the darkest of scenes," though one particular scene involving night vision goggles did produce "noticeable image degradation in handling the gradation of green hues." As for audio, the 5.1 DTS-HD Master Lossless Audio track was deemed a "real aural treat," and of course, the bundled Digital Copy
made things even sweeter. All in all, critics found AvP:R to be a "must-see for technological advancements in special effects and high-definition," though even they couldn't completely
ignore the "amateurish and unimaginative storytelling."
