Product Description

Amazon.ca

Executive producer Robert Rodriguez (Grindhouse, Spy Kids) is the driving force behind this energetic reboot of the popular Predator films, which pits the dreadlocked alien hunters against a rogues' gallery of human antiheroes, led by a bulked-up Adrien Brody. The Oscar winner acquits himself nicely in the role of a gritty mercenary who finds himself stranded on a jungle planet with a host of criminals and professional killers (among them such scene-stealers as Walton Goggins and Danny Trejo), as well as a seemingly innocent doctor, well played by Topher Grace. They've been deposited there to serve as living targets for a horde of Predators--whose looks, designed by Gregory Nicotero and Howard Berger, are impressively varied and sleek--that use the planet as their private hunting grounds. Laurence Fishburne is also on hand as a soldier who has managed to survive for years in the jungle; he, Brody, and Grace do much to make the pulpy dialogue by Alex Litvak and Michael Finch (adapting a premise penned by Rodriguez in the mid-'90s) palatable. Likewise, Hungarian director Nimrod Antal (Vacancy) lends a great deal of atmosphere and Rodriguez-style momentum to the picture--perhaps more than necessary, since the end result is, like the 1987 original with Arnold Schwarzenegger, a fun B-movie and nothing more, designed entirely to give moviegoers a slick, unchallenging roller-coaster ride. Having said that, it's a vast improvement over the 1990 sequel and the dreadful tie-ins with the Alien franchise, and should provide movie monster aficionados with an afternoon's worth of thrills. --Paul Gaita

2.0 out of 5 stars A tepid kick at the Predator franchise- Nov. 5 2013
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Predators(released July/10)is a very luke warm addition to the Predator franchise by producer Rodrigues.It stars,among others,Adrien Brody,Topher Grace,Alice Braga,Walton Goggins,Danny Trejo and Lawrence Fishburne.Unless someone has a bit more imagination than this and the last group of writers of the series,then this franchise is essentially dead in the water.And what a shame as it has SO much potential.I thought at least Rodrigues would do a half decent job,but boy was I wrong.
The story starts as Brody is free falling to Earth.Just in time his parachute opens,but his landing is still a rough one.Eventually eight others join him.Some are former armed forces personnel but others range from a death row inmate to a doctor.None know why they are there or where "where" is.They wander around the jungle-like environment until they come to the edge of the forest and discover three planets in the sky.They are definitely not on Earth.It is soon after the group get attacked by dog-like creatures that sport deadly spikes.They manage to kill most of them,until the last ones are recalled back by a high pitched sound.Brody comes to the conclusion they are in a game preserve of sorts and they are the prey.
The group later enter a clearing in which they find a Predator tied up to a tall stake.Suddenly a bigger Predator attacks and the second victim from the group falls.Later in the jungle, Fishburne appears offering the group shelter.He takes them to an abandoned space craft where he has lived for about 10 years.He talks to an imaginary friend,but reveals that the predators have a feud going between the bigger and smaller ones.During the night he tries to kill the group,but Brody attracts the predators who kill Fishburne.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back to the jungle Feb. 23 2014
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
One of the biggest problems I had with "Predator 2" was that it abandoned the atmosphere of the original "Predator" movie. As for the AvP movies, forget it.

Well, "Predators" has a completely different cast and setting from the original... yet it successfully captures that grimy, sweaty, blood-stained jungle quality. The difference this time is that all the humans are also vicious killers of one kind or another, and strong performances by Adrien Brody, Alice Braga, Laurence Fishburne and the rest keep us invested despite the nastiness of some characters.

Eight people find themselves parachuted into an unknown jungle: Royce, an American mercenary (Brody); Isabelle, an IDF sniper (Braga); Hanzo, a yakuza enforcer (Louis Ozawa Changchien); Nikolai, a Spetsnatz soldier (Oleg Taktarov); Mombasa, a Sierra Leone death squad member (Mahershalalhashbaz Ali); Cuchillo, a cruel cartel thug (Danny Trejo); Stans, a serial killer on death row (Walton Goggins), and a seeming harmless doctor named Edwin (Topher Grace).

At first, the eight people have no idea who they are doing there, or how they came to be there. They have even more questions when they realize that this jungle isn't even on Earth.

But that isn't their biggest problem: someone is following them through the jungle, and slaughtering these seasoned killers one by one. Also, there's a crazy guy (Laurence Fishburne) who may be a lot more dangerous than he seems. Their only chance of survival is to somehow kill the alien Predators that are following them -- assuming they don't kill each other first.

When I first heard of "Predators," my first thought was that it sounded more like a remake than a sequel.

2.0 out of 5 stars My Two Cents... May 20 2011
By Adam TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Is it a Sequel or a Remake?

I struggle to find words for this movie. I have grown to dislike strong language, which this movie has in spades. The action sequences were pretty good, but the special effects could have been better (I watched it on Netflix, so quality might have been an issue).

This movie has an entertaining story line. A bunch of "predators" from planet Earth (soldiers, killers, thugs, psychos, etc...) are abducted by the Predator aliens who then take them to their hunting range planet. Blood, guts, corpses, alien technology, betrayal, double cross, crazy people and more blood and guts... pretty much summarizes the majority of the movie.

Here's my big problem. This is way too similar to the original Predator. The guy with the mini-gun, the knife/sword showdown between the Japanese guy and the predator, the jungle, the music, the two lone survivors being the main protagonist and a girl, etc... are all too similar to what happens in the first movie. It's like the production team couldn't decide whether to make a sequel or a remake, so they said yes to both and squished them together.

If you're a die hard fan of the franchise, worth the buy. If you just want some entertainment, rent it or borrow it.
