PREDATORS

Predators Movie Review

A group of assassins, killers, special ops, etc, from around the world are sent to battle Predators, a group of aliens on the hunt. This is a continuation of the first two Predator movies, but this time the humans are on the Predators’ turf. I am a fan of the original and the second one wasn’t bad, so I was looking forward to this movie--I was disappointed with almost all of it. Adrien Brody (The Jacket, Summer of Sam) plays Royce, the main character—I am usually a big fan of Brody, but he was miscast in this role. He is simply not believable as the tough guy leader of this group. The script and especially the dialogue in this movie are awful. The characters are not likable and, other than Edwin (Topher Grace Ocens Eleven, That 70's Show), none are interesting in the least. The only character I really liked was Hanzo (Louis Ozawa Changchien), and that’s probably only because he barely speaks. The Predators look pretty cool for the most part, adding to the bit of enjoyment I had watching it.

There are a couple surprise twists as well, with varied results. One thing I will give this movie credit for is that they (producer Robert Rodriguez especially) continued the story of the first two Predator movies and ignored the Alien vs. Predator films. Overall, however, this is a pretty average action movie and nothing worth going out of your way to catch.
