July 14, 2010
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.
July 12, 2010
At the midpoint... it got more and more confined, claustrophobic and flatter.
July 9, 2010
None of this is scary, and nothing makes sense.
July 9, 2010
There isn't anything as comically grisly as the exploding head or Carl Weathers' arm removal, both well-remembered moments from the original Predator.
July 9, 2010
Predators needed more predators.
July 9, 2010
It has fun showing us that humans can, indeed, be the most dangerous game.
July 9, 2010
Predators mostly just suggests a bunch of grown-up men playing with toys and not bothering to invite the rest of us into their circle.
July 9, 2010
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.
July 9, 2010
The dialogue is dumber than dirt, and the plot crumbles at the halfway mark, but the movie does what a loud summer blockbuster should, which is loudly bust blocks.
July 9, 2010
A stylish, lean and, well, familiar outing.
July 9, 2010
This chaotic stew of fire, blood, mud and explosives is so devoid of terror and suspense that any metaphorical analysis is rendered moot.
July 9, 2010
Predators is just another movie-machine, running on action formula.
July 9, 2010
Predators is good if gory grindhouse fun. It tweaks the conventions of the summer monster movie, even as it observes them.
July 9, 2010
After 23 years and three attempts, Predators finally delivers a solid sequel to the Arnold Schwarzenegger B-movie classic.
July 9, 2010
Predator fans, fearing another lapse into disappointment, can relax. Although it's arguably not saying much, this is the second-best movie of the series to have "Predator" in the title.
July 9, 2010
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.
July 9, 2010
It's silly, bloody fun.
July 9, 2010
Predators is a pretty good action movie for about 45 minutes. Unfortunately, it lasts 106.
July 9, 2010
All these years after Predator, these decades past the classic film, Most Dangerous Game, that inspired this genre, it's good to see the idea of the hunter becoming the hunted still gets the blood racing.
