[The filmmakers] should go back and revisit the original film to discover what made it good in the first place.

This is Predator karaoke - a film which looks and sounds like the 1987 film, but lacks the zest.

Brody has the makings of a first-class action hero. Unfortunately, he is strutting his stuff in a third-rate action movie.

This is the kind of film you go to expecting gore and shocks; ultimately these two elements, along with the predators themselves, are sadly awol in this latest version.

As the humour and colour drain out of the film, the same-old monsters arrive and we end up in near darkness, barely able to comprehend what we're doing watching this nonsense one more time.

It lacks the quiet suspense of the first Predator, and please don't even mention the Alien vs. Predator pictures, which lacked the subtlety of Mothra vs. Godzilla.

Some genre movies simply work out this way: Whatever their intentions or origins they percolate for about an hour. And then they sputter and hope that a promising first half will be enough to get by.

At the midpoint... it got more and more confined, claustrophobic and flatter.

Predators is a well-crafted film, but it is joyless.

Predators is just another movie-machine, running on action formula.

None of this is scary, and nothing makes sense.

In the end, Predators devolves into a succession of warrior-to-warrior battles. This stuff is fun but not terribly exciting.

Predators is a movie you love if it's your thing. Key word: if. It's not mine.

There is a point where I thought this was a misguided Apocalypse Now homage. There was another point where I thought: Adrien Brody is no Arnold Schwarzenegger. But in the end what really disappointed me were the underdeveloped character tensions.

Predators tries to spice up the hunt-or-be-hunted thesis, but from the get-go, director Nimrod Antal's movie has nowhere to run.

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.

This small-minded reshuffling of the "Predator" franchise that began in 1987 is little more than a modern sci-fi B-movie filled with more plot holes than you can count.

You wince at the cheesy dialogue poor Brody is obliged to mouth and wonder what such actors as Laurence Fishburne, Alice Braga and Topher Grace are doing here.
