The original Predator was one of the best action films of the 80s. It had everything: suspense, scares, kick ass fights and Arnold at his most awesome. Since then, there have been some pretty uninspiring sequels. Finally, Predators appears, 25 years later, and while it's not perfect, it's a pretty good reboot.
A group of abducted mercenaries is literally dropped into a jungle with an endless supply of weaponry. Turns out, they're on another planet, and they're the prey of the namesake aliens. If you've seen the original (or The Most Dangerous Game) you know some of them are going to die, some of them are going to survive, and there is going to be a lot of bullets flying.
This film adds some new Predators and some crazy creatures to the mix. Director Nimrod Antal keeps things moving along fast enough that you can ignore the big ol' plot holes. It also helps that you've got great actors like Adrian Brody and Laurence Fishburne to take things seriously (after his appearance in Splice, Brody seems to be making a career of elevating b-movies). As with most films these days, the filmmakers really don't know how to bring things to a satisfying climax, but it's still a pretty fun ride until then.
