Director Nimród Antal tried hard, but his effort to boost the Predator franchise with a much-needed shot of adrenaline failed. While Predators is worlds better than Predator 2 and the excruciatingly bad Alien vs. Predator movies, the latest sequel features too much talk and not enough carnage. Produced by Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) and based in part on a script he wrote years ago, Predators features a scenario that harkens back to the 1987 Schwarzenegger original. A band of supreme badasses is dropped into a foreboding jungle, and something is watching them. The Predators look great, but they spend precious little time on-screen. Too much of this movie focuses on characters (including Adrien Brody in the lead) standing around and talking rather than actually battling monsters. It’s surprisingly boring.
