Goofs

When Edwin is upside down at the beginning of the movie he is asked if he has anything to cut himself down with. He says no, but then pulls out a surgical knife to stick in a poison flower. However, he is a pathological liar as proved numerous times throughout the film. Also, after waking up falling from the sky when he claims he was just on his way to work, he may not have realized he had the kit on him at the time. See more »

Great Predator Film
11 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this film largely because it makes no attempts to familiarize its audience with what is going on. We are instead thrust into the situation as blindly as the characters are, except how ever we know the films called Predators, so we do have a good idea of what the characters are up against. Additionally, the casting is fantastic. The film contains a large variety of characters that add a whole lot of flavor to the film. Whether its Danny Trejo's Mexican cartel background or the mystery surrounding Topher Grace's character, there is always something to keep you something to keep on your mind while the characters try to avoid falling prey to the Predators. Additionally,I really enjoy Adrien Brody in any role he is in, and his venture into the sci-fi action scene is no exception. After having seen this film and Splice I cant wait to see what he does next, I like seeing the added range of an already proved actor.

Now having said all this, the film isn't without its disappointments, I feel the film needed to spend a little time explaining how our characters got to this reserve planet. Further, the "Most Dangerous Game" theme has worn a little on me and I feel with the actors involved they could have added an additional thoughtful theme to lift this movie from B-movie fun to a complete more thought provoking film.

Bottom line: Predators is a very well made film, with likable characters and plenty of blood splattering fun. Just don't expect too anything too profound in way of plot or theme. But seriously, you are seeing a Predator movie, so I doubt you're expecting that.
