PredatorsDirector: Nimród Antal
A group of hardened killers are hunted on an alien planet in producer Robert Rodriguez and director Nimród Antal's entry into the popular sci-fi action franchise. Mercenaries, murderers, gangsters, and convicts, they were the most feared men on Earth. But now they're a long way from home, and when the predators become the prey, fearless mercenary Royce (Adrien Brody) prepares for the fight of his life. And he's not alone, because Mexican gangster Cuchillo (Danny Trejo), Israeli Defense Forces veteran Isabelle (Alice Braga), notorious mass murderer Stans (Walton Goggins), Russian Special Forces operative Nikolai (Oleg Taktarov), RUF death squad member Mombasa (Mahershalalhashbaz Ali), and sword-wielding Yakuza Hanzo (Louis Ozawa Changchien) are all armed to the teeth, and out for blood. The odd man out is Edwin (Topher Grace), a once-prominent physician whose career came to an end following a big scandal. When the motley crew encounters Noland (Laurence Fishburne), a resourceful human who has somehow managed to survive on the alien's hunting grounds for some time, they prepare to take the ultimate stand against the most powerful Predators yet.

The predators had brought an assortment of humans to another planet. The group was clearly selected carefully. It included an ex-military mercenary, a Mexican drug cartel enforcer, a Spetsnaz soldier, an Israel Defense Forces sniper, a Revolutionary United Front officer, a death row inmate, a Yakuza enforcer, and a serial killer. At first these individuals hadn't any idea what was happening. They considered explanations from their backgrounds - kidnapped for ransom, military tests, drugs, behavioral experiments - none made any sense. Each had been in high risk situations before being brought there, they briefly wondered if they were already dead and in Hell. Soon enough they found themselves not only being hunted, but also caught in a blood feud between 2 different Predator Clans. This gives fans: Predator vs Yakusa. Predator vs Soldiers. Predator vs Predator. It also introduces the audience to Predator Hunting Dogs. In the climax, the mercenary lures a massive Predator into an ambush. He set the area around him on fire, the intense heat blinds the Predator. Fans of the Predator series, will enjoy this a lot.
A great film that stays true to the original Predator franchise instead of diluting the original story with the Alien vs. Predator franchise. Adrien Brody definitely embodies what people do and think when they find themselves in a situation they do not understand. I thought it was interesting when I found out there was an even more dangerous subspecies of Predator. I liked that the new Predators shared traits with human hunters, such as bear traps, mechanical hunting falcons, and a pack of alien hunting dogs. Whenever I watch this movie, the thought of being hunted by creatures of that kind of lethality. I would recommend this film to anyone who enjoys some good old fashion science fiction.
Not much to the plot, Adrian is not a good actor let alone the lead in this movie. Very predictable and slow starting, even when the action starts moving pretty good it seemed the movie was going to redeem itself but then we went back to boring. The dog predators was a good add and so was the birds of prey at least the little bit they showed of them but again it was not enough to keep me captive. If you're a young kid or some of the brain dead adults that are becoming so common these days you'll probably like this movie, I sure didn't. It is the typical Holly-weird trash we been getting too much of lately, poor & dumb is in these days!
So, my brother and sister n law brought over a couple of movies for me to watch. Among them was Predators. So, I sat down and popped the movie into my DVD drive on my PC, and started watching. And what did I think about the movie? The characters were rather interesting. You have an ex-military personnel, a doctor, a scientist, a swordsman, a fighter, a prisoner, and a female specialist. So, what do all these characters have in common? They are all hunters of some sort. They were all dropped on a planet from parachutes on a mysterious planet, which they find out later in the movie. Basically, it's a hunters vs hunters style movie. The Setting of the movie takes place on a foreign planet that is either a planet, or a moon. I'm guessing a moon. This planet has some interesting critters, and plants to boot. The monsters on this planet are rather unique to the storyline. I won't delve too much into this as to not spoil the movie for others. Over all rating. What did I think over all? The movie was presented in a drop you into the action kind of deal. Which isn't all that bad really. Personally, I enjoyed the movie. Out of 5 stars, I'd give this movie 4.5 stars. Reason being is I don't believe any movie should receive a 5 star rating, as all movies can be improved on. Also, one persons perspective on what can be improved will differ from person to person. I hope this review gives you the information you need.
its as good as the first two predator movies its differnt features differnt charecters and its easy to enjoy if only arnie would return to this movie series as dutch because in the first predator movie dutch put up a very good fight with the predator/alien creature
