Trivia

In a 'making-of' segment on the DVD's special features, it can plainly be seen that stunt performers were used for the cliff fall scene, in most of the shots, if not all of them, that were actually used in the movie. This is especially true for Edwin's fall. This was done by a professional, and he still accidentally landed mostly on his head. See more »

Goofs

When we first see Nikolai open up with his minigun, the barrels don't appear to be moving. However, this is because of a common stroboscopic optical illusion known as the wagon-wheel effect (caused by temporal aliasing. The best known example of this is when the wheels of a stagecoach appear to be stationary when in fact they are rotating, because they are rotating at exactly the same speed as the camera shutter, i.e. 24 times a second.)

The real predator movie we all have been waiting for since '87.
7 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all, it's not a reboot as many speculates, it's direct continuation to Predator 1&2, and only AVPs are dismissed but the movie doesn't neglect them altogether, we get to see alien like skulls in the movie, however alien universe is wholly neglected.

Let's start with the best part of the movie, the acting. It's very rare for a sci-fi movie to contain good acting these days, all gone are the days of Alien/Aliens/Blade runner etc. where the acting used to get all the praise more than action. In Predators, every single character is very believable and delivers. It's astonishing to see the acting of Brody, he deserves an Oscar for his role as Royce more than he did in "The Pianist" as Szpilman. Rest of the cast did very well too, they perfectly fill in their boots as group of elite warriors. It would be fair to say that compared to the original Predator movie, this movie exceeds in the acting department.

Next comes the story line, it's pretty much based on "The Most Dangerous Game", the story itself is well written and not rushed, it takes time to unfold events, and ample time is given to develop characters. There is really a fear and eerie feeling in the story, and we don't get to see the hunters very often, which adds more thrill and suspense to the story; just like the original flick. To me an unseen threat is more scarier than seeing the perpetrator every minute.

The music is tense, almost reminiscent of Alan Silversti score in the original. Good thing here is that it's not overdone, and the drum beats are used rightfully when the situation demands it to. Really nice work by the composer.

As for CGI, it's very minimal and not overdone as well, although not same as the original which is understandable since a lot of progress have been made in graphics department since 80's, take Avatar for example.

I also want to talk little bit about violence and rating of the movie, it's also not very frequent we get to see spine ripped off and people chopped into half by laser guns these days, had crafty cuts to the movie not been made, this flick could very well been awarded an NC-17 rating.

Last but not the least, this flick is an instance of how a good movie can be made on a small budget, you don't require big budget for your movie to please audiences, you just need to have a vision thing to make pleasurable flicks for them. Kudos goes to Nimród Antal & Robert Rodriguez for such a great effort.

Final score:-

Direction: 10/10 Acting: 10/10 Music: 10/10 Story line: 8/10
