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.
