The first UK review of Predator has been published by UK newspaper NewsoftheWorld. It’s a positive one – the reviewer gave the movie 4/5 stars.

The pacing’s ace, too. There’s a late introduction of a new human that  keeps  things spicy (long-term survivor Laurence Fishburne – judging by that  spare  tyre, the foraging’s pretty good in this jungle), a beautifully-staged  samurai sword battle in a field of long grass, and a majestic ending,  where  Brody goes ‘a bit Apocalypse Now’. With Predators, Rodriguez and Antal have made something old-fashioned,  in the  best possible way. They just GET what made the original such a hoot –  and by  and large, have reproduced the same thrills here. This movie sets action film-making back two decades. And hooray for  that.

Be sure to check out the Official Review Thread in the forum which will be continually updated this week when new reviews come out. In related news, Predators has been rated R in the US for “pervasive language, gore and strong creature violence.” Also, composer John Debney has posted another sample of the Predators score online. Check it out here. Thanks to SuicideDoors, Royce and Black for the news.

I'll have to hold myself from downloading the thing, and wait blistering 2 weeks more...

All bad films have one or two good reviews.  I don't think this means anything.  And saying "the French hate all movies blah blah" is a terrible way to disregard a large group of bad reviews. I remember the first 2 or 3 AVP-R reviews were relatively ok, and from there it went strongly downhill.  
I'm still gonna hold on until I see the film.

Uhm...Neon_Knight....These are not 1 or 2 good reviews. There at least are 8 very positive reviews. And very serious ones from big sites also.

the phrase that gives me hope in this review is "unless you count the Alien Vs Predator films...which I don't"!  ;D
