GOOD ACTION FILM - DONT LISTEN TO THE BAD REVIEWS!!,
This review is from: Predators (2010) [DVD] (DVD)This is in no way a masterpiece. Thats because its not supposed to be!!
Alot of people give this bad reviews because they were expecting a movie that would rock the foundations of hollywood for years.
If you love action movies, and if you're a predator fan, you will love this movie. I wasn't expecting an amazing story line or a movie of genious, i just wanted it to be full of blood, predators and just all out action. And that it was.
Heads being chopped off, people being impaled, Predators fighting humans, PREDATORS FIGHTING PREDATORS!!! I don't really need to say more.
Oh, and by the way, this is not a bloody remake and wasn't supposed to be!!! Its the 3rd Predator movie, and a follow on from the originals, but like Predator 2, doesn't make to much reference to the previous movie(s), its a whole new different story with different characters.
Now to get to the bad points. The ending was quite bad. I don't want to spoil it, but there wasn't much of a finale, atleast not for me! There seemed to be alot of running around, a couple of people and a predator get killed, and then it ends. There was no epic battle or epic finish to the movie.
Also, there was too much use of the F word. I'm not in the least bit sensitive towards swear words, but it gets annoying. Also, theres one nerdy character, played by Topher Grace. This Actor seems to do exactly the same Character in each of his movies, just he's a bit more nerdy then he was in Spiderman 3. Still the little idiotic weasel, but he doesn't put the cool guy act on in this movie. So expect to see Eddie brock back in his latest trip to space. Sounds like a Spiderman spin off!! But the main reason i hated this character is his part/point in the movie went untold until the end and it all adds to the mess up that the last 10 minutes were. It was a rediculously stupid character plot, and you are left thinking, all that thinking, and mystery and this is what we get fed to us?
Lawrence Fishburn, the face that caught everyones attention in the trailer, doesn't last very long at all, so all Fishburn fans beware. Morpheus got lucky in the Matrix movies, this time Lawrence Fishburn was caught out.
Overall, it was good, but the ending was a let down. I think they must have ran out of money. The action was mostly brilliant. But one thing i think people will be dissappointed about, is the amount of Predators. There still wasn't very many. For this movie there was the right amount because for most of this movie there was only about 5/6 humans, and having a massive horde of Predators chasing them would question the intellignece and ability of the Creatures. There's about 10 predators in the movie, and two main Predators. However, theres also alot of beasts and frights along the way, don't worry, you won't get bored with a long talky part.
