The first Predators review can be found over on Epinions.com. It’s a positive one and he’s given it 4/5 stars, specifically praising the special effects, music, acting and tension. I contacted the author myself to check the authenticity of it and it is indeed the real deal – he saw the movie at a private screening.
Ultimately, “Predators” will not win any big awards, but it is surprisingly engaging and more scary than it is outright gory and that is a treat for anyone who has suffered through the last two installments that had anything to do with the predator aliens. And yes, the title is a double entendre and there is something to be said for humans being the aliens in this one and hunted without the home field advantage. While the humans may have predatory instincts, what is arguably most terrifying about “Predators” is how the aliens selected their prey and what it means when people this ruthless cannot save themselves!
In related news, Rodriguez announced that the Predators premiere will take place July 7, 2010 at the Parmount Theatre in Austin, Texas. Production Info and full credits were released and are available to download in PDF format. The production stuff contains quite a lot of information about the characters, predators and production. Lastly, there’s a new interview with Adrien Brody in the DailyMail. Thanks to dalleville and Darkoo for the news.
