Predators (2010)

Director: Nimród Antal. Cast: Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, Alice Braga, Laurence Fishburne, Danny Trejo.107 min. Rated R. Sci-Fi.

A disappointment. I was expecting more from producer Robert Rodriguez. The premise is interesting (humans are thrown into a wildlife preserve planet to act as game for the alien Predators), but the plot opportunities provided are not used to their fullest, and Adrien Brody is no action star. Laurence Fishburne makes a nice entrance as a cuckoo Ben Gunn-like character, but even that ends up nowhere. And remember that great scene from the trailer with tens of triangle red beams pointing at Brody, preparing to demolish him to pieces? It's not even in the movie!

  1. You just said it: Adrian Brody CAN'T be in a movie about Predators unless he's in it as a helpless victim with those upward sad eyebrows so we can sympathize with him........Bad Predator, Bad Predator!
