BLOODY HELL, IS THIS REAL OR AM I DREAMING !! !! !! !!,
This review is from: Predator Deluxe Head - Limited Edition Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
This is the ultimate Predator set, and one of the best DVD sets i have seen in a long time. It contains Predator, the slightly dull Predator2 and the very dull Alien vs. Predator.
But that cannot put you off such a marvelous set. This not only comes in probably the coolest container for dvd's to ever be made but has the special edition versions to each film. Which are all packed with many many cool extras!
The origonal Predator is a fantastic action/sci-fi movie starring the lord of super soldiers; Arnold Swarseneggar (if thats spelt wrong you try it with your eyes closed). It has everything an action flick of its kind could possibly want and is a cult classic because of it. Massive guns, Super soldiers to use them, A jungle, A super cool alien with even more guns and technology and a pretty good story to go with the film. Although the lines of the film may not be as complex as some other flicks of its kind it maintains the needs of a hardened action fan and still holds its origonality and excelence whilst bieng a sci-fi with some bloody scenes for thise who like them, plus a bunch of explosions and a large number of terrorists to shoot and blow up at the start. It was a classic form the word go.
Predator2 however wasnt as good, Arnold wasnt avadable for this so Danny Glover (Who is reasonably well known from films like Lethal Weapon and Saw) plus a different setting for the Predator to kill in; the city. This has been the case for many of the Predator books and is a very good idea after seeing the Predators capabilities in the jungle, so this film has a hell of a lot of hype before its release but was let down dramatically because it wasnt actually that good and was more of a super cop in the city gighting gans and Predator involved. It still turned out to be a decent action flick but was mainly let down because the fillm before it in the series was so brilliant. Released on its own as the origonal predator movie it would have been much better.
Alien vs. Predator is the final film in this set and the worsed, combining the two sci-fi franchises and some how has now branded Predator a horro instead of an action, this is based upon the ideas of the many Alien vs. Predator novels whivh were pretty good. (especially "prey" if your interested)Yte this is just extremely dull, non violent, pretty slow paced, badly acted, has a boring atmosphere for some reason and is a pretty baed waste of some great visual effects and a bunch of cool Predators with some fancy weapons, as well as not exatly giving anything helpfull to this series of films, mabe even making this well known franchize a little less popular.
Although this may sound odd, dont be put off, if you have the money to buy this set than i suggest you do, weather you like these films or not. Shurely you can find someone who does and give it as a present (if i got this as a present i would be crying with happyness).
Buy if you can!
