im a massive fan of the predator series and even enjoyed AVP even though that wasn't even that great,and couldn't wait for the next, but after watching this i have to say im really disappointed. i can see what the film makers were trying to do by setting it in a jungle like in the original but it didn't really work for this film. for a start the cast is terrible, Adrian brody as the lead!!!! what were they thinking?!!! and the only other actor i had heard of that had been cast is Laurence fishbourne and he's only in it for about half an hour!!! which in my opinion is pointless considering quite a big deal was made about him being in it.
The predators are probably the only good thing about this film. introducing a new species of them i thought was pretty cool. i was disappointed with the lack of gore that usually comes with the predators but i guess i should have expected that as the film only has a 15 rating when the previous ones have all mainly been an 18 rating.
Anyway, i think its a good effort but it could have been soo much better. i would recommend watching it if you are a massive/hardcore fan of the series as its still pretty cool and worth watching.
so 3 stars from me i would have given it 2 but i loved that the film makers put the original arnie line "do it! do it now!!" in the film.
