We're back to talk the 2010 Predators movie starring Adrien Brody, Alice Braga and Laurence Fishburne.
When it comes to Sci-Fi movies feature aliens, there are two franchises that stand out: Aliens and Predator. We've covered all of the films in the Alien series (not including Prometheus) here. Then we moved onto Predator starring Arnold Swarchneggar and the 80's steroids all-stars and Predator 2 with Danny Glover's sweat glands. So all that's left in the individual series is Predators, the last solo movie in the Predator franchise.
Predators released at an interesting time. At first glance it seems like just another one of Hollywood's cash grab relaunches of a former series. However, this film is actually pretty good and continues the Predator series tradition of fan service and adding a little bit to the lore each time.
This film has everything you could want
- Adrien Brody trying his hardest to be a tough guy
- Danny Trejo doing what he does best in films (dying horribly)
- Laurence Fishburne acting crazy (Was he really acting?)
- A sword fight with a Predator (Finally we get to see what Billy's scene in the first movie would look like)
- A Predator vs Predator fight
- And much more.
Predators is definitely a film worth checking out again. Overall, the Predator franchise is more consistent in terms of quality and sticking to its own lore than the Alien franchise. Can't wait to see what the 2018 film has in store for us.
