From Amazon.co.uk

Executive producer Robert Rodriguez (Grindhouse, Spy Kids) is the driving force behind this energetic reboot of the popular Predator films, which pits the dreadlocked alien hunters against a rogues' gallery of human antiheroes, led by a bulked-up Adrien Brody. The Oscar winner acquits himself nicely in the role of a gritty mercenary who finds himself stranded on a jungle planet with a host of criminals and professional killers (among them such scene-stealers as Walton Goggins and Danny Trejo), as well as a seemingly innocent doctor, well played by Topher Grace. They've been deposited there to serve as living targets for a horde of Predators--whose looks, designed by Gregory Nicotero and Howard Berger, are impressively varied and sleek--that use the planet as their private hunting grounds. Laurence Fishburne is also on hand as a soldier who has managed to survive for years in the jungle; he, Brody, and Grace do much to make the pulpy dialogue by Alex Litvak and Michael Finch (adapting a premise penned by Rodriguez in the mid-'90s) palatable. Likewise, Hungarian director Nimrod Antal (Vacancy) lends a great deal of atmosphere and Rodriguez-style momentum to the picture--perhaps more than necessary, since the end result is, like the 1987 original with Arnold Schwarzenegger, a fun B-movie and nothing more, designed entirely to give moviegoers a slick, unchallenging roller-coaster ride. Having said that, it's a vast improvement over the 1990 sequel and the dreadful tie-ins with the Alien franchise, and should provide movie monster aficionados with an afternoon's worth of thrills. --Paul Gaita

4.0 out of 5 stars Great return for the predator. 6 Nov 2010
By Paul
Format:DVD
This film does exactly what you would want from a predator film. It takes a little while to get going but once it does it goes at a very entertaining pace. It's a 15 rating so its not as blood thirsty as the first 2 predator films but there is plenty of action and enough blood to keep everyone happy. Adrien Brody plays the lead very well, the supporting cast is good and there are plenty of duels, explosions and laser cannons to go around.

The only disappointment for me is that a fight scene with a samurai sword wielding yakuza mumber against a predator was just not long enough, but still great fun. And if that wasn't enough, we even have the legendary predator fighting an even bigger, badder predator. What more could you want? Anyone who enjoyed the first 2 films will definately like this one. The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is because it was never going to be better than the original. GET TO ZE CHOPPER!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Big game hunt 15 April 2011
Format:DVD
The average rating here for this DVD doesn't really do it justice - there's no way it can be compared with the unholy mess that was Aliens v Predators; the cast are much better, there are actually some reasonably-developed characterisations, the Predators themselves are great, and it's got Larry Fishburne as a crazed survivor - what's not to like?!
I wasn't sure about Adrien Brody initially but he proves to be a strong lead and the chemistry between him and Alice Braga's Israeli sniper is good too. The format, whereby the seemingly disparate bunch are picked-off one by one sticks closely to the original's template, and there is even a fleeting reference to Arnie's character from the 1987 movie.
Overall this isn't a cerebral film or a thoughtful Sci-fi study; it's a wham-bam Hollywood popcorn movie, and with that in mind it certainly ticks all the right boxes.

3.0 out of 5 stars The return of a great franchise! 1 Nov 2010
Format:DVD
It's always good to see Predators back on the screen as they are so iconic. Recent efforts (AVP, AVP: Requiem) have not been the best films but we all love Predator and the film makers know this so they don't have to try very hard!
Now the new one 'Predators' is trying to redress the balance of being a good film which we should all be happy about!

So the first thing you have to wonder when watching this movie is WHY?? Why try to remake the original so closely?? Predator 2 managed to be a really good film without jungles and soldiers so couldn't they have done the same here? Its hardly an original idea - soldiers running around in the jungle being hunted. Oh. I've seen that before somewhere.... Adrien Brody has been getting all kinds of accolades as being an excellent actor in this film. I'm not sure why as there's not the greatest amount of acting and emotion here. Just American hero bluster as usual. The supporting cast does an OK job but they were never going to be iconic as Blain, Billy, Poncho, et al so why bother trying to do that again?

Another downside is the Predator planet itself. It looks like Earth, has the same gravity, atmosphere, vegetation etc. Couldn't they have at least tried to make it look like an alien planet....just a little?

Those gripes aside, once we finally get into the action, Predator fans do get a treat. The Predators look cool and make short work of the heroes one at a time which is what we want to see. The dark edge and Royce's escape plan finally give the movie some direction and go on to build the tension nicely (even though its not difficult to guess where its all going) towards the end. The ending is where the film finally pays off and it all gets good so its all worth it!

Overall this is a weird film to judge.

By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER

Eight 'Elite Warriors are unexplainably brought together on an alien planet with no idea how they got there., however
they will soon learn that they are 'prey' to be hunted down by a merciless 'Alien Race' known as 'Predators'
A tense and often gory battle of survival against the skills of the Alien beings.
Among the cast list - 'Adrien Brody' as 'Royce' 'Topher Grace' as 'Edwin' 'Alice Braga' as 'Isbelle' 'Laurence Fishburne' as
'Noland' and 'Danny Trejo' as 'Cuchillo'
When released there were many negative reviews about the film, however if you've seen the others you know what to expect,
For me it does manage to bring back much of the flavour of the 'Arnie' film, when we were first introduced to the species that are 'Predators' (Of course that was a classic movie)
i enjoyed this myself.

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Like most fans I've seen all the "Alien" and "Predator" films and for the longest time have felt most of the later issues are just treading water. 2010's "Predators" went back to the gut-wrenching adrenaline chase of the Arnold Schwarzenegger/Carl Weathers jungle original and restored the faith for many.

Plucked from Earth - a group of convicts, misfits and generally expendable types (Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, Alicia Braga and Danny Trejo to name but a few) are literally dropped from the sky in parachutes onto an identikit planet and left to fend for themselves. But of course hiding in the trees behind cloaking devices are our steel-helmeted purring friends with a hankering to remove a human spine with a really big Bowie knife (I get like that on the 212 bus to Chingford sometimes).

Navigating hostile foliage, fleet-of-foot ravenous creatures and cleverly set death traps - they meet a survivor of previous hunts (Laurence Fishburne holed up in the bowls of an abandoned craft). Noland is going mad but may have a way off the multiple-mooned rock. The hunt is on/the escape continues. But will Royce (a buffed up Brody) who is now assumed leader of the pack survive? And how and with whom?

However fans should note that if you buy - avoid the tempting low price of the 20th Century Fox 'US' edition on BLU RAY. It's REGION A LOCKED and therefore won't play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are). Go for the UK variant instead - it's cheap as chips too and looks fabulous on the format into the bargain.

So folks "Predators" - cover your face and pecks with mud, set up a campfire in the centre of your living room, get out that huge kitchen knife you only use at Christmas and slash your way through this rather good little turkey shoot without fear of the wife asking you "is that fried brains I smell again my darling one?"...
