Micro Review: Predators

Finally, after two decades of suckypairings with Fox's other alien franchise, we get a real sequel to John McTiernan's 1987 action classic. And it's a doozy too as producer Robert Rodriguez and director Nimrod Antal return the title monster to its roots, creating tension and mystery about the beasts while crafting a kick-ass tribute to the original. The film employees music and visual cues from Predator, adding a sense of nostalgia to the proceedings. Antal is also willing to shoot the film "old school," using cinematic techniques and effects which make the movie feel like it could have been made 20 years ago. Predators is a B-movie that knows its job and does it well, executing its simple premise with flare. A Good review from The Basement.

  1. I wasn't too impressed with the cross-over movies, and wanted either a new Aliens movie... or a new Predator movie. Definately on my list of movies to watch.
