Movie Review: Predators

Plot: Eight total strangers with backgrounds of being elite warriors except for the physician are being brought unwillingly to an unknown place and being hunted by the alien Predators. 
Review: It's been twenty years since the Predator had a movie and it's not counting Alien versus Predator movies specifically, AVP2. Although the first AVP movie had the character development or rather,species development in the Predator universe, because it is not their solo movie. It was only this Predator movie that gotten us now focus on the Predator with more information how complex their culture is. If you haven't seen the first two Predator movies, don't worry. This movie's story stand alone but with a little flashback on the first one. So if you are new with the Predator genre, this is a good movie to start with. For the casting, it's good to cast actors with less star quality. I was not expecting Adrien Brody to be in this type of movie. He seemed to make himself not only internalize his character but also kept himself shape. I thought he was thinner now he really looked buffed. The choice of characters is a variety is also what I like because it's essential for the story. For director Robert Rodriguez, I never thought he could do great with Predator. Although, I am a fan of his because of the El Mariachi trilogy, I am not impressed with his SpyKids movies. If you are familiar with Robert Rodriguez, somehow, you can see his trademark of how he moves the actors in action sequence. With Robert Rodriguez around, you may notice Danny Trejo is not far behind. As I said, I really enjoyed seeing the Predator again in a solo film minus the Aliens and I look forward for another one to follow up the Predator universe. Predators opens July 8 in all cinemas and brought to you by 20th Century Fox.
