Review: Predators

Mercenaries, murderers, gangsters, and convicts, they were the most feared men on Earth. But now they’re a long way from home, and when the predators become the prey, fearless mercenary Royce (Adrien Brody) prepares for the fight of his life. And he’s not alone, because Mexican gangster Cuchillo (Danny Trejo), Israeli Defense Forces veteran Isabelle (Alice Braga), notorious mass murderer Stans (Walton Goggins), Russian Special Forces operative Nikolai (Oleg Taktarov), RUF death squad member Mombasa (Mahershalalhashbaz Ali), and sword-wielding Yakuza Hanzo (Louis Ozawa Changchien) are all armed to the teeth, and out for blood. The odd man out is Edwin (Topher Grace), a once-prominent physician whose career came to an end following a big scandal. When the motley crew encounters Noland (Laurence Fishburne), a resourceful human who has somehow managed to survive on the alien’s hunting grounds for some time, they prepare to take the ultimate stand against the most powerful Predators yet.

Robert Rodriguez knows how to make a movie, he took the Predators story to a different level, and in this movie surpassing the original with Arnold. Adrian Brody seemed to be an odd character at first but he pulls off the lethal mercenary perfectly, the whole bunch of them just fit perfectly together. Watching the trailers doesn’t tell you much about the story but when it comes together your surprised and you love it. Those new Predators redefine the Predators Universe, different types for different types of hunting, that there are wars between them for supremacy of the hunter and it just keeps getting better. The story is great, the action is nonstop, and you know the next one is going to be good if Rodriguez takes the reign again, if you are a Predator fan then this should be at the top of your list, and if you want watch an action movie then this movie will not disappoint.

Review: Machette

It’s one of those movies that are just over the top, and Machette is this unstopable man fighting for justice and basically killing the big bad guys and anyone who stands in his way. This movie surprisingly has a lot of big stars in its line up and they just fit in, and at some points its just so over the top that you can’t stop laughing. I honestly loved the action, its presented perfectly as a gritty rough movie, an amazing piece of work from Robert Rodriguez.

The list of people in this movie is just ridiculous, its probably the first time I have seen Steven Segal in a normal movie. Then there are Michelle Rodriguez and Jessica Alba who are trying to fight the bad guys and get involved with Machette, who seems to have a way with all the ladies period. Cheech Marin as the ass kicking padre who is incidentally the brother of Machette and helps him out in a pinch. Don Johnson and Robert De Niro as the crazy Texans. All out insanity breaks out and you just love every moment, and then there is Lindsay Lohan which I try to forget! A must see movie!

Predators – Trailer

Predators

I am a huge fan of all Predators movies, since Schwarzenegger to the AVP series which were pretty bad. I always liked the Predators as noble hunting creatures which only acknowledge strength but the last few movies were nothing short of a disaster, nothing beats the first two and I loved the one with Danny Glover. I heard of the reboot and was a bit worried about it but it seems that Robert Rodriguez has taken it back to its original story with a depth of cast that is going to make it one hell of a summer blockbuster. An Elite Warriors picked from Earth are dropped on the Predator homeworld to be hunted as game for the Predators, but this time there are different kinds of Predators, “Super Predators” as previously hinted with different ones specialized in different types of combat. The interesting part is this Elite Warriors, part of the team is Adrien Brody and Laurence Fishburne, but the trailer will get you worked up to see this movie in July.
