Predators, a bold new chapter in the Predator universe, shot under the creative auspices of Robert Rodriguez, stars Adrien Brody as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they’ve been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the notable exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers--mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members--human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators in the ultimate battle of survival of kill, or be killed.
Crucified – Motion Comic
Executive producer Robert Rodriguez (Grindhouse, Spy Kids) is the driving force behind this energetic reboot of the popular Predator films, which pits the dreadlocked alien hunters against a rogues' gallery of human antiheroes, led by a bulked-up Adrien Brody. The Oscar winner acquits himself nicely in the role of a gritty mercenary who finds himself stranded on a jungle planet with a host of criminals and professional killers (among them such scene-stealers as Walton Goggins and Danny Trejo), as well as a seemingly innocent doctor, well played by Topher Grace. They've been deposited there to serve as living targets for a horde of Predators--whose looks, designed by Gregory Nicotero and Howard Berger, are impressively varied and sleek--that use the planet as their private hunting grounds. Laurence Fishburne is also on hand as a soldier who has managed to survive for years in the jungle; he, Brody, and Grace do much to make the pulpy dialogue by Alex Litvak and Michael Finch (adapting a premise penned by Rodriguez in the mid-'90s) palatable. Likewise, Hungarian director Nimrod Antal (Vacancy) lends a great deal of atmosphere and Rodriguez-style momentum to the picture--perhaps more than necessary, since the end result is, like the 1987 original with Arnold Schwarzenegger, a fun B-movie and nothing more, designed entirely to give moviegoers a slick, unchallenging roller-coaster ride. Having said that, it's a vast improvement over the 1990 sequel and the dreadful tie-ins with the Alien franchise, and should provide movie monster aficionados with an afternoon's worth of thrills. --Paul Gaita --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.

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!!
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.
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.Read more ›
The characters are one of the main problems here – most of them are not likeable, so you really don’t care if or when they get bumped off. Even the lead character played by Adrien Brody is cold, unsympathetic and selfish, though he does show a bit of humanity in the end. It’s also blazingly obvious from the outset which characters are going to be left standing at the end. Halfway through yet another unlikeable character is thrown into the mix in the bulky guise of Laurence Fishburne as the nutty survivor of a previous hunting season. On the subject of Brody, while I completely understand the decision not to cast a Schwarzenegger-type actor in the lead role, you would’ve thought the film makers would have at least hired someone with solid leading man credentials; Brody is a fabulous actor, but action-hero material he is not.Read more ›
