I was given the chance to attend an early showing of Predators yesterday. And I have got to say it was better than I’d expected. I’ve written up an in-depth review:

“What I think really makes Predators stand up as a better film is that it  takes itself seriously. It would be too easy to slip into that 80′s  feel to pay tribute to Predator and make it way to cheesy. Thankfully  none of that happens. There are no ridiculous one liners. No stupid  characters like Tony Pope. This is life or death and the film does not  detract from the severity of the situation these characters find  themselves in.”

I found it much better than Predator 2 and far superior to the underwhelming AvP films. The review is mostly spoiler free but I do discuss 2 death scenes so read at your own peril. Be sure to check out.

I can't comment on the new film, but i was just wondering what you meant by the rediculous 1 liners, because in my opinion in the first film they really make the film so good, "your one ugly mother f****r"... classic one liner and every one knows it,Arnie killing a gurillaur near the begining "stick around" again a classic one liner that made the film good :-\  could you just let me know please.

I think that if they had put any silly one liners into the new film then it would have made it cheesy, but the original film wouldn't be the same without them. Especially when they get over used by film makers i.e in Predator 2 ("you are one ugly motherf*****") and then again in AVP where the same thing is said to an Alien. You can't beat Arnie's little one liners, and I'm glad they haven't tried to make a replica of the original film. The franchise needs seriousness and some fear brought back to it, and by the sounds of things - that's what we might be getting. ???

Thanks for the review.
I glanced at it so wouldnt read any spoilers.  Just like reading the details how the predators look and how ADI sucks at what they do.
That picture of the black predator?  looks AMAZING!   Im not a fan of the green predator.


I really want the predator to say "want some candy?" again.
funny as hell.
Love the liners in predator films.
