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!!

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.

...Arnie

...Danny Glover

...Adrien Brody ....Who???

If you're going to make an action film, put an action hero in it. Not somebody who was known form playing a fella that played a piano! Sheeeesh!

All said and done it was better than Aliens vs Predators Requem, ...but then again, so is static interference!

After the somewhat abysmal Alien vs. Predator Requiem, the Predator series was badly in need of a reboot if it was to continue. And I felt that it should continuum because AVPR was such a sour note to leave a once great series on. Robert Rodriguez took on the challenge, and has produced a film that doesn't achieve the greatness of the first two films, but is a lot better than AVPR and a worthy addition to the series.

A miscellany of humans, chosen seemingly for their killing prowess, find themselves transported to a strange jungle. It slowly dawns on them that they are being hunted, but by what? Slowly they put the pieces together and, inevitably, come up with a plan to fight back.

It's an OK film. It's a good premise, with the predators plonking the humans into their own game reserve. It manages to have some continuity with the original predator, but is self contained and can be easily understood by people who haven't seen the previous films. The tension is nicely built up in the first half of the film, with some nice set pieces as the group find out about each other and the situation they are in. But then it all starts to go a bit tepid. Here, as the title implies, there are lots of predators. In the original films there was only one, and it seemed a real threat. Here, there are many and they seem to be killed off rather easily, and seem less of an actual threat to our heroes. So the big fights and action scenes lose some of their edge for my taste. It's well staged, and has a decent ending that leaves things open for a possible sequel, but it just isn't quite in the same league as the first two films. So only 3 stars - it's watchable, but no classic.
