Predators was a film much more in the spirit of the original than the awful AVP films. It wasn't as good as Predator 2 (which in my opinion is a pretty good film, and I have no idea why it gets so much flak) but it wasn't far behind it, and in many ways it felt like more of a Predator film than the original sequel starring Danny Glover.

This is mainly due to the fact that Predators takes the idea back to it roots, basing the story in the Jungle, with a group of men being hunted. This time, by a small team of Predators. But I also think it's hugely to do with the fact that this script was actually written before all the other AVP films, but for some reason never got made, with the movie moguls choosing to take the franchise in the other (and frankly terrible) direction.

This film evolves the world of the Predator films for us nicely, introducing us to new beasts from the universe and new parts of their culture - in fact we even learn that there are a whole different race of Predators to the ones we've seen before. The special effects are excellent, as you'd expect, and I'm glad to say that there seems to be a distinct absence of over the top CGI, with real life props, make-up and sets being the preferred option.

Shot on location in Hawaii, and just outside texas, the landscape looks stunningly beautiful but eerily alien too. All in all Predators was a fairly decent watch and the only thing letting it down was the weak character development in the film. You just never got to feel for any of them like you did Arnie (or should I say Dutch?) and his platoon of men from the original film. I also didn't like the led guy too much if I'm being honest.

But perhaps it's unfair to keep comparing this sequel to the first film?

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.

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!!

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.

What did I just watch? I as expecting alot more action with this story.

I either missed the scene in the trailer where all the red dots appear from the predators or they decided to put it into the trailer only to make the film look better.

The plot is ok but seriosuly the whole film drags, no real action or decent characters to care about. The whole alien animal dog thing was just stupid aswell.

Worst part for me was when Laurence fishburne uses a predator stealth suit, oh please -_-.

Dont get me started on the little scene when one guy is talking about rape, not cool.

2 stars for visual effects and for keeping the original soundtrack.

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.
