Mercenaries are brought together and soon realize they are on a game reserve and that they are the game. They must band together to ensure that they can survive in order to get off the planet. Predators may not be the most thoughtful science fiction film, but Adrien Brody gives a solid performance and it is an entertaining film.

Underrated and undervalued. This well written sequel keeps you on the edge until an explosive finale.

Nothing but a major copy and paste title, and has the balls to call itself a true sequel!? I was able to take Alien Resurrection more serious than this!
At least the creatures still look decent alongside the timeless one!

Though its script is filled with predictability, plot holes, and unoriginality, Predators is still a mostly fun action-packed reboot that pays excellent homage to the first.

After the crappy AVP movies it was nice to see a Predator movie take the series back to its routes. Altho some of the casting is questionable and full of cliches its still worth a watch and has some really great actin.

Solid entry into the franchise that takes it back to it's action filled roots while providing some nice twists along the way. The cast is good across the board, with Adrian Brody making a surprisingly good action star. Walton Goggins also steals scenes as twisted death row inmate while Fishburne gives a layered performance as a soldier who has been on an alien planet a bit too long. Behind the camera, Nimrod Antal (now that is a director's name) delivers some fun action though not all the scenes work (the Predator dogs aren't quite convincing). Thankfully, the Predators themselves are still pretty cool, along with some intriguing new twists on their culture. Overall, the best Predator sequel to date.

The best Predator film yet

3.5/5. A solid action-survival film. It won't blow your mind, but it's still a fun movie.

Brilliant, and I mean brilliant! This stands up and stays true to the original Predator. It has the jungle scenery, the soundtrack, and the characters. One million times better than both of the Alien vs. Predator films and 10 times better than Predator 2.

Sorry to the "Predator fans", instead why not try to be a movie fan. This film does the job. It's the closest thing we've ever had in comparison to the first movie since sequels started popping out. If you want it to be just as good as the original then just go watch the original. That being said there are obvious flaws.

Un aceptable regreso de la saga

Looks really good! Can't wait to see it.

The first truly decent film starring the Predator in twenty years, and pretty much the same sort of schlocky fun as the original. It's perhaps a bit too similar to the first for its own good (what with the jungle-y setting and all), and sacrifices some tension for bigger action, but it still makes for fun B-grade sci-fi worthy of the name on the tin, if not as good as it was in the 80s, nor as it could have been.

More cliche's in the first ten minted than most films have in an hour and a half. The number of unnecessary "f*cks" suggests poor writing. But mostly a macho Adrian Brody makes this film unbelievable.

Not bad, I was skeptical of Adrien Brody as the lead in an action flick, but was pleasantly surprised when he turned in a fine job as Royce, a hardened mercenary out to survive a Predator game reserve planet. I also liked the original Predator's cameo, nice nod to the first film, to which this film is an omage.

If this anything like "Aliens vs Predator" it will be good. Previews what little they show , looks promising

Finally, a sequel that actually feels like it belongs next to the original 1987 film "Predator". Omitting a string of sub-par followups, "Predators" successfully brings this fan-favourite franchise back to its roots, emulating the basic setting and structure of the original film and introducing a new (if somewhat hackneyed) storyline so as to avoid becoming a direct remake. Director Nimrod Antal and producer Robert Rodriguez managed to find that necessary blend of horror and machismo that fueled McTiernan's original film, leaving enough space to move the franchise and Predator mythos forward without losing anything in the process. The final product takes a little while to find its rhythm, but eventually succeeds at reviving the tone of the classic film that inspired it, and accomplishes what it sets out to do without offering any more or less to the viewer.

The cast is quite good, with a hardened Adrien Brody doing a decent job attempting to fill the shoes of his legendary predecessor, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Playing more into the "badass Black-Ops" type of character than Arnold's "mass of muscle", Brody eventually proves he can hold his own as a lead action star, even if with a handful of cringe-worthy lines. Other familiar and unfamiliar faces appear to flesh out the cast of (anti)heroes, with Alice Braga standing out as a great female lead, and Topher Grace offering some necessary comic relief as well as an interesting character twist. There is also a fantastic sword fight between the Yakuza assassin and a Predator, and a great Predator kill of a human via spine-removal.

The Predators themselves are fleshed out more than in the original, and a new breed of stronger Predators are introduced, complete with their own rules of hunting. As a minor setback, I felt that the Predators lacked any memorable new weapons, and the mask of the final one looked silly at times. In the end, "Predators" is a film that will never fully live up to its predecessor, playing more like a cliched homage to the original than its own standalone film. However, it still offers a violent, thrilling and appropriately campy viewing experience which just might succeed in bringing you back to the good 'ol days of '80s cinema.

"An Action Movie For Dads That Like Action Movies!"

**** 1/4

This Movie Gets Right Into The Action From The Start, & Though It Lacked Some Of The Elements That Made The First Predator A Top Notch Action Packed Army Movie, It Was A Good Try At Trying To Stay To The Typecast Of The Original Film That Had Captured The Admiration Of Action Movie Fans...
(Or You Could Say A Movie For Dads That Like Movies!)

A Group Of Human Predators
(As They're Know To Be On Their Planet)
Awaken To Find That They're Falling From The Sky With An Electronic Parachute On Their Backs That Will Put'em On The Ground Safely. Unknowing Each Other; Nothing That Is Going On Makes Any Sense To'em At First, But Soon They'll Find That They're No Longer On Plant Earth & Whatever Planet They're On Isn't Exactly A Vacation Plant.

"The Pluses + Are"
Adrien Brody
(Though I Was Surprised To See Him In An Action Film Like)
(This One)
Did A Top Notch Job As Being The Lead Character; Laurence Fishburne Also Gave A Top Notch Performance As Being A Sub-Plot No-Mad Character That Appeared For A Short Time, The Seats Were Well Done, & The Action For This Type Of Film Was 'Bout As Good As Could Be Expected.

"The Negatives - Are"
Adrien Brody's Character Is The Only One In The Ensemble That Had Enough Depth Or Interest That Makes You Want To Care About A Character.
(If They Ever Remake Jaws They Should Get Him To Play)
(Brody)
The Plotting Was Predictable, You Could Pretty Much Predict Who Was Gonna Eat It First, & Who Would Make It To The End Of The Line For The Last Showdowns. Because There Wasn't Enough Time To Build The Characters Up They Didn't Really Play Off Each Other, & There Was No Humor Of Any Kind Other Than The
"Oh Ship!"
Parts.
(If You Find Humor In That)
The Weapons Of The Predators Were The Same Old Thing From The Previous Films, Which Most Likely Is A Disappointment To Fans That Wanted To See Some New High Tech Stuff From'em.

With All The Pluses + & The Analytical Negatives - That Will Be Ignored By Most All Action Movie Fans, This Movie Will Entertain Action Movie Fans.

I Give This Film A B - (Bright) **** 1/4

The sequel to the Predator series is more than worth watching! This film keeps you glued to the screen and manages to be original.
It is also interesting to see Brody in a not typical role.
