The song that plays over the credits is Little Richard's "Long Tall Sally" and is a direct reference to the first Predator while the group of soldiers are traveling in a helicopter. See more »
In both Predator decapitation scenes, the heads are lopped off in one clean stroke that severs the entire neck. In both cases, though, none of the aliens' tentacle "hair" is cut, even though it would be in the path of the blades. See more »
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")
