In which Predators hunt the deadliest game of all - Adrien Brody and a bunch of no-name actors. Plus Topher Grace. Seriously, Topher Grace?! Maybe the Predators should knock it off entirely.

After 4 movies since the original, I've come to the conclusion Predators suck(s). The movie and the creatures.

Short review with SPOILERS:

So are you saying 4 stars, or 4 1/2 stars?

To nitpick: There was PREDATOR and PREDATOR 2. AVP and AVP: REQUIEM were not necessarily sequels as they were films using the characters. Sure, call them 'sequels' but AVP was a film on it's own and AVP:R was THAT films sequel.

PREDATOR 2 was pretty good. Gary Busey ate the fuck outta it.

I saw this movie yesterday, and I thought it was okay. I don't care how ripped Adrien Brody gets, he just doesn't have the face of an action star. Topher Grace was pretty good as always even with a badly written character. I was also happy to see Mr. Goggins show up.

My favorite part of the experience was seeing a preview for Machete. Now THAT movie looks awesome.

I strongly disagree with you about Adrien Brody. He did surprising well here. I can think of quite a few actors who went on to be 'action movie stars' even though they really didn't look the part or already were being typecast in other types of films. some perfect examples are...

Bruce Willis - I'm sure no one who watched MOONLIGHTING ever imagined him making it as an action star.

Matt Damon - With that babyface of his, he shouldn't be able to play badass, but thanks to the BOURNE series and action movies like GREEN ZONE.

Lastly, Nicolas Cage. From comedy and lighthearted drama to to kicking ass in THE ROCK, CON AIR, FACE OFF... it's like he's two different people.

And about 40-50lbs too much to be playing a grizzled old survivor of "10 seasons" in that place. I totally bought Adrien Brody as a badass here, but Fishburn . . . not so much.

Still, a worthy addition to the series. A few too many "callbacks" to the original, but otherwise an enjoyable way to spend a few hours in bumfumble Mississippi on a waaaaay too hot evening.

Sing this special song. It's just for you.
I hoped (was I alone?) beyond all logic and reason that was Arnold underneath that Predator mask and I got a puffy Morpheus.

Decent movie otherwise, just didn't have the budget to be anything great.

But seriously AVP: R was BOSS and this movie had nothing closr to a facehugger latching onto a chick in labor.

Though Topher Grace continues to impress me, and if the movie had ended with Brody blowing up while Topher is killed after proving he's a monster, it would have been unspeakably awesome.

I missed the scary mix of Gollum and E.T. that is Phil without a hat as well as various other bits due to the NHL playoffs. Probably nothing important. Not as important as the playoffs, anyway. This week I finally understood the fuss about Jordin.
