The film 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 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.

    Antal is a professional who respects your dollars. In a season where the blockbusters are as flat as month-old soda, that’s the most romantic gesture a commercial filmmaker can make.

    Amid the macho poses and reloading of his unbelievably enormous weapon, I was distracted by the notion of Brody’s participation as a kind of privately satisfying performance art (a similar impulse found James Franco doing a guest stint on "General Hospital").

    Summer was made for this kind of film, and Predators is almost exactly what you need to fix this otherwise busted summer cinema season.

    Predators biggest failing is that it manages to make its sci-fi violence absurdly boring.
  5. Predators, plural, starts well and ends poorly, and in the middle it's in the middle.

    The Predator series needed a shot of vitality, not another workmanlike go-around. SSDP: Same shit, different planet.
  7. You can't fool me. I know it's actually a parlor game.

    I haven't actually seen Predators yet however I have watched enough Dateline that Chris Hansen has me convinced that predators are I haven't actually seen Predators yet however I have watched enough Dateline that Chris Hansen has me convinced that predators are horrifying. Add the fact that these monster now roam on alien planets as well only confirms that Hawkins was right - we should not be sending out space probes that are the equivalent to a google map for our front doors. Gripping story that is all too real. Expand

    I'm giving this a 10 to offset people and critics who were not a fan of the original 2 Predator movies, who certainly take their jobs or I'm giving this a 10 to offset people and critics who were not a fan of the original 2 Predator movies, who certainly take their jobs or opinions far too seriously. This is a franchise with a set of rules, and boy oh boy did this one deliver on cue. Great fun, great nods to the original concepts that even Predator 2 missed. This is the sequel the first deserved.

    "Predators" full of 2D characters and CG monsters, entertains well among the summer blockbusters.

    This was the true sequel to the 1987 original. This is what predator fans were waiting for. This beats out those god awful Alien vs. PredatorThis was the true sequel to the 1987 original. This is what predator fans were waiting for. This beats out those god awful Alien vs. Predator movies it promises fast action and it succeeds, It goes off of the successful formula the first movie created and ran with it. The only problems I found with it was the cast Adrian Brody was no where near as good as Arnold in the original and the whole movie was so obvious that it was mind numbing. Expand

    PREDATORS
    PREDATOR (1987) has been one of Arnold Schwarzenegger memorable movies. Now, they try to extend the narrative into a new chapter from thiz franchise, in PREDATORS, with letter S which is expected to be multiplying (I guess). But what I see from thiz newest alternative is just a movie with a repetitive formula and setting. The formula is still a typical mysterious introduction to the creatures what we called Predators and how a group of soldiers die one by one, until the last one. The setting is still tropical jungle, exactly what we saw on Schwarzenegger version. Thiz one is officially the third Predator movies since the first one in 1987 and PREDATOR 2 in 1990, plus two spin-off when Predators clash with the Aliens (another iconic Hollywood creatures) in AVP (2004) and AVP 2: REQUIEM (2007). Unfortunately, I almost can say thiz one could easily fall into B-Class movie with B-Class Actors attached, such as: Alice Braga, Topher Grace, and others. The only exception (of course) is on Adrien Brody performance, his attempt to be action hero must put as a great credit itself. Brody seems to be successful to build his body and delivers some brawny hero attitude, with his voice and tone characteristic. The other brief but convincing appearance made by Laurence Fishburne. I simply watched thiz movie bcoz I wanted to see what could Nimrod Antal (Director) did for his next project, since his latest VACANCY (2008) created an intriguing and effective thriller. In thiz Predator movie, Antal did not make a new innovation. In fact, he took many rip-off elements from the first original one. If they are keep doing thiz without any modernity has been made, I think they might had been killing Predators itself.

Surely the simple ingredients are a few bad a*s characters that you are rooting for, some bad a*s predators that stalk and scare the s**t out of the characters and a few good death scenes and fights. None of this is in Predators. Expand
