Not to bad a way to kill a hour and three quarters, much better than the last Alien vs Predator film.

Re: Predators

Completely agree, but then again, it wasn't going to take much to trump AvP. Absolute dross. The only bad thing i have to say about Predators is Adrian Brody as the lead character. Couldn't watch the film without thinking of Alistair McGowan, the impressionist - he's the spitting image!!!

Re: Predators

I think that you will find AVP and AVP Requiem are two of the greatest films ever made. I hope Predators is as good.

Re: Predators

That's who he reminds me of, I couldn't place who it was but I thought he looked familiar.  I have watched it twice since Saturday and I am going to my friends tonight and were going to watch again. Now I am going for a cup of tea and watch an episode of Still Game I recorded last night.

You've watched the same mediocre film 3 times in less than a week?

Re: Predators

I thought it was a good film, not fantastic...despite the fact im a big fan of the franchise.  However much better than the Alien vs Predator films...saying thaqt I will watch any old rubbish Stick out tongue  I liked the music, very reminisent of the first film, story echoed the plot too.

 "I liked the music, very reminisent of the first film"

Is this because it is the music from the first film by any chance ?

Re: Predators

I saw it at the flicks and wasn't impressed.


It suffered from 'too much' syndrome.


Basically, an idea keeps having ideas thrown at it and nobody says "Whoa!".


Two types of Predator? Tosh. Predator pet 'dogs'? Pah!


It's a shame because I beleieve if they'd stripped the story down to its core, we could have had a good film here.
