i just saw the film today, and enjoyed it. did it WOW me, not so much. i agree with capsule on all counts and you make valid points. i dont think that nimrod should have directed it.RR should have taken the helm. the mans an action junkie, and thats what the film was missing. i did'nt like the fact that the new preds' were easily killed off by humans and that the old preds' were not so much of a match against the other species. i honestly think that the original pred should have finished the final one as an act of vengeance, then the end would have gone a different route. like its pretty obvious that the planet they were on was'nt the old preds' game reserve and that they all should find a way off that planet before more of the others come, still paving the way for a sequel. so basically the real problem i'm having is that there was definately alot of charachter flaws on the preds' part. i hope they get it right next time. overall brodey surprised me he was actually good and i ended up not wanting his spine ripped out. it def beat the crap out of the avp franchise but just ended up below a level from its originator.
