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!!

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.
