Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
Fear is Reborn
A mercenary named Royce reluctantly leads a motley crew of warriors who soon come to realize they've been captured and deposited on an alien planet by an unknown nemesis. With the exception of a peculiar physician, they are all cold-blooded killers, convicts, death squad members...hunters who have now become the hunted.
Instead of hunting mankind on Earth, the predators now 'transport' professional soldiers/mercenaries/hitmen/enforcers etc to an alien planet and use them for hunting practices.
Predators aims to do homage to Predator whilst at the same time aim to present the audience with new twists.
Adrian Brody does surprisingly well as the leader of this rag tag gang, and Laurence Fishburne performs his version of Gollum as the lone survivor from previous groups.
Predators succeeds in kick starting the predator franchise back to life and has quite a few memorable scenes.
Whereas Predator had the iconic scene of Poncho taking on a Predator with a enormous machete, Predators has a yakuza enforcer taking on a predator with a katana.
All in all this movie fulfills its goal, as for me, it does honor the original quite well
Predators managed to add some mystery back into the equation by virtue of its surprising location, which in turn made this a less predictable film which ultimately heightens the excitement and suspense!
Missing far too many opportunities to be a better film than it is, "Predators" is a big, dumb, loud, yet highly enjoyable science fiction, action epic. An ark story that casts a disparate band of characters against a classic alien foe, the premise is interesting and the film is exciting and watchable fun. Adrien Brody as the alpha-hero is inspired casting and a nicely unhinged Laurence Fishburne steals the show. In the final analysis, however, "Predators" give its audience a little too much of what it has already seen, for better or for worse.
Alright, let's get this out of the way first - this film does not even come close to the sheer amounts of awesomeness that the first film contained.
However...that does not mean that this is a bad movie at all; it's actually pretty good. The action scenes are still about 80% better than most films, the new Predator designs actually look quite good, but mainly you've got one of the most awesome group of characters ever. I mean, there's a sharp-suited Yakuza enforcer with a katana, a minigun-wielding Russian special forces member, Danny 'May Haunt Nightmares' Trejo, an psychopathic prisoner and...Adrien Brody. Yeah, I was surprised too.
This felt a bit like the equivalent of a fanboy rant, shouting how much they love what they're paying homage to all the time, forgetting what they should be doing, namely making their own film.
It's not that this is a bad film at all, it just feels like it's trying too hard. The entire film had this feel of ' look how much attention we paid to the original first film, fellow Predator geeks!' which kept distracting me from the decent film that was unfolding in front of my eyes.
I liked some of the set pieces and there were some riveting action sequences, but nothing that really landed. This I blame…
Pretty good, but I doubt we'll get any Governors out of it.
A hunting preserve with the learning version of Arnold Schwarzenegger's nemesis. What could possibly go wrong. Especially when the hunted are the most elite fighters on earth.
A fine movie but if you want action and pop out scares this is a movie that will meet those specifications!
The film is about a group find themselves on alien planet where they find the predators have become the prey and they must come together if they have any hope of survival. This movie was way better then predator 2 but still not good as the first but this is a fun movie to watch.
Adrian Brody pega tanto como protagonista de esta película como si meten a Gabino Diego hinchado con bombin.
Lo mínimo que se le puede pedir a una película sin guion y que pretende ser un mero entretenimiento es que divierta y esta es muy aburrida.
Another movie where I fell asleep during first sighting, but since I love Predator(s) and Rodriguez being on of my favorite movie makers (yes, I know he did not directed Predators) I felt responsible to give it another try.
It is stupid, it is primitive, it is not logical. Of course, it does not have to be, but the created mixture is mediocre at the max.
