I just got home from seeing Predators.  And truthfully, I think it's probably the second best Predator movie I've ever seen, ranking just behind the original.  The second movie wasn't that good and the AVP movies were a little too convenient at times.

It was great to see a bunch of hardcases back in the jungle being stalked by Predators.  The inclusion of the guy with the mini-gun?  This was a little too convenient for me.  But story-wise this movie held together alright.

There are several planets where different species of Predators live.  A lot of it is in EU comics :)  This one follows where the first one left off which I like a lot.  I like it but not sure about the main character.  Just don't like how he talked(tough man).

I thought he was ok, stole some Arnold lines though.

saw this in the beginning of the week, not bad.  Alot of references and very much like the original predator which I liked, a few stolen lines from it as well and some music and background music was the same from the original.  Overall I liked it. 


I have one question though which is kind of a spoiler so dont read on if you havent seen it.

Where did these bigger predators come from, they said there was a feud between them and the predators we know.  at first I thought they were the crossbread alien/predator but they arent, they were just bigger and cooler masks.

Is this like Surviving the Game only with Predators instead of Ice Tea?

Really?  Sounds cool.  And the cast seems decent.  But is the script any good?  AVP was a decent story, but didn't have a whole lot of star power going for it.  Sure, the Lance Hendrickson role was an interesting tie-in to the original movie, but it was mostly B players in that movie.

And AVP Requiem?  It made AVP look good.

What the original Alien, Aliens and Predator had going for them?  Good casting and decent stories.  This casting seems alright.  But will the story be good?  That remains to be seen.

ShockTillYouDrop.com reports that Laurence Fishburne ("CSI," "The Matrix" trilogy) has joined the cast of Robert Rodriguez's Predators, now filming in Austin, Texas under the direction of Nimrod Antal.

Fishburne is playing a character named Roland in the film. He joins a cast that includes Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, Danny Trejo, Walton Goggins and Alice Braga.

They play a disparate group of people who land on the Predator home planet only to discover "unspeakable horrors."

20th Century Fox is targeting a July 7, 2010 release for the film.
