The odor of musty, late-'80s nostalgia may still hover around this already threadbare brand, but you simply don't see movies that leave both the curious and the fans who truly care this viscerally satisfied anymore.

Antal is a good enough action director that some of the combat is pretty exciting.

There isn't anything as comically grisly as the exploding head or Carl Weathers' arm removal, both well-remembered moments from the original Predator.

A decent cast, great effects and costumes and satisfying blood and gore make this a pretty decent horror remake, which you don't find too often.

Despite pacing problems, Predators is a wildly entertaining picture that bends the franchise back to more captivating quandaries, erasing much of the bad taste left behind by previous installments.

There's something to be said about a movie with a Predator in it that is actually decent, especially after three previous tries in 20-plus years.

Forget Predator 2 and all that Alien Vs Predator rubbish - this is the sequel that the Arnie-starring '80s actioner deserved.

I couldn't get past Brody as an action hero, and I didn't jump from my seat once. I wanted at least that much from a film that spent so much money on bullets and bazookas and bombs and bombast.

If Predators had plunged deeper into the bloodsport-honour-hunting, kill-or-be-killed psyche of both sides, this could've been a truly jolting reboot.

Audience Reviews for Predators

After the very disappointing Predator 2, I had some concern when a new predator film was announced. However, after finally watching it,I felt not fully satisfied,but found a far more deserved sequel to the orginal monster masterpiece.

Firstly, looking at the positives; Adrien Brody, who plays as Royce, a mercenary and the main character. I can truly say that Brody pulled off a rather impressive performance, along with Lawrence Fishburne and Alice Braga, they give a rather promising cast of actors. The story gave an interesting twist of humans being abducted and hunted, but prehaps used too much from before. I will say that the violence in this film was not up to the high standards left by the first film,but is at a level that has some violent elements that feel very much like the predator would do, such as violently ripping out a human's spine and skull and blowing up a human with a plasma cannon.

Now to look at the negatives. It is fairly predictable to know which characters die and those that survive. Secondly, I remember the first film built up its tension by having the men staring into thin air, knowing something's there. However, this happens only once and the majority is mostly guns blazing action. Going to the intense fighting scenes, I felt disappointed of haw the last two kills are both the same technique of beheading, prehaps having different ideas would've made the fighting moments more interesting to watch. Finally, I kind of knew that Topher Graces character, who is supposedly a helpful doctor turns out to be a psychopath, as the quiet one usually are the violent ones. However,he did give a clever performance.

Predators may not be a great satisfaction to those awaiting a decent sequel, it tops the spin-off franchise of AVP and puts in better effort in creating accuracy,action and violence. Plus, there are some decent references to the original, such as Little Richard's "Long Tall Sally" during the credits. We can now easily forget the one that should never have been made.

A collection of heavily armed strangers find themselves in a remote jungle wilderness and stalked by an unseen assailant. Predators is so similar to the 1987 original it can almost be seen as a remake. It has the same jungle location, the same situations, even many of the same plot devices; the two things it is missing however, are Arnie in his prime and a sense of humour, which is something of a problem seeing as they were the very elements that made Predator work. The amusing banter between the group of friends from the original film not only provided laughs but also made you care what happened to them; quite why we are supposed to have empathy for what is essentially just a collection of assholes with big guns I have no idea. I would also have to say that although I am a fan of Ardien Brody, he's always been something of an intellectual hero and seeing him hiss macho platitudes through clenched teeth is a little hard to swallow. Things get a little more interesting when Laurence Fishburne makes an appearance but it's little more than a cameo and we're soon straight back to mindless violence. It's a shame because the idea behind Predator has a lot of potential but even after FIVE movies featuring them, we still know little more about them than they like hunting things. It's noisy and flashy enough to stave of boredom but not only is Predators not as good as the original, it's not even as good as the AVP films.

I quite liked Predators, even though they played it safe by sticking to the first films winning formula, it ticked all the right boxes. In the right hands this franchise could take off again, there was a good balance of intelligence, fantasy and development - of both characters and story. There is no way to please all of the fans but I personally think they did a pretty good job here, I found it entertaining throughout.

Mercenaries and soldiers and a haphazard doctor land on a mysterious planet only to find they are game for the predators.
The film is pretty much the low end of what one might expect: there are the appropriate number of action scenes and plastic characters. One doesn't go to a film like Predators expecting to see grand pronouncements about the meaning of life, so I can't be too hard on the film. But even based on its own standards, I find flaws. Most importantly, even though Adrien Brody gives his best effort at sounding and looking like an action star, this is the same guy who played the pianist, and he can't shed his sensitive predilections; it's the script's fault (or the casting director's) for making him try. Also, Laurence Fishburne seems like he stopped by on the way to another movie; it's either that or the writers couldn't figure out another way to tell the audience meaningless facts about the predators' planet.
Overall, if you don't mind senselessness, then the action sequences in Predators might be enough for you to forget the film's flaws.
