According to director Nimród Antal, the lower jaw attached to the mask of the Berzerker Predator is that of an alien from the Alien movie series. See more »
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 mercenary Royce (Adrien Brody); the military Isabelle (Alice Braga); the Russian soldier Nikolai (Oleg Taktarov); the San Quentin criminal Stans (Walton Goggins); the Serra Leoa militia Mombasa (Mahershalalhashbaz Ali); the drug lord Cuchillo (Danny Trejo); the Yakuza Hanzo (Louis Ozawa Changchien); and the Doctor Edwin (Topher Grace) awake in free fall but they succeed to open their parachutes landing in a jungle. Sooner they discover that they are in another planet and they are preys of aliens in a deadly hunting game, and they need to join forces to destroy their predators and survive.
"Predators" is a predictable but entertaining sequel of the 1987 film. The plot is not original and the story begins like in "Cube" (1997) with a group of skilled strangers trapped in a jungle without knowledge about where they are and what is happening. Adrien Brody is full of steroids performing a mercenary, but this role of action hero (or anti-hero) does not fit well to his profile. The Brazilian Alice Braga surprises in the role of a military and the rest of the cast have good performances. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Predadores" ("Predators")
