AltAss Ratings (On a scale of 1 to 5 asses)


Brings a decent formula to the table for what could amount to a pretty entertaining action adventure ride.

Writing / Production:                

The biggest problem with "Predators" is the painfully slow start and mundane lulls between the action.  The action scenes are okay but disappointing considering how long the audience sits in anticipation of them.  The special effects seemed hokie at times which drove the final nail in the coffin for this film.


I just don't think bad ass is in Adrien Brody's range so it is unfortunate that the film makers didn't go with someone else.  Laurence Fishburne and Topher Grace were very good but their roles were too small to carry the movie.  The rest of the supporting cast gets a solid B+.


The film is a sequel and really offers only one small plot twist audiences may not see coming that is in the end quite trivial.


Action adventure movies are supposed to keep your juices flowing and at the very least not put you to sleep.  "Predators" fails to do either and perpetually will keep you waiting for something good to happen.
