I caught Predators on Friday finally. This stuff either works for you or it doesn’t and this one worked for me. I think they overdid the shaky camera thing in one of the fights and while I’ve always liked Brody he made a far more credible badass than I was expecting. I could have used a bit more info about the Predators and a bit more delving into the Predator/prey hunting sentient creatures tale these stories seem to want to be about but a nice little ride.
I also liked that it was or at least appeared to be lite on the CGI and heavy on actual make-up and muppets for the bad guys. Didn’t seem to have a bunch of effects shots for the sake of having effects shots.
And the terrain/jungle felt alien despite it no doubt being earth.
Must see for diehard fans and must rent for folks who’ve seen Predator a few times more than three but don’t consider themselves ‘diehard.’

And when do we get Aliens on Blu-ray for pity’s sake?
