Predators review (Awesome, Good, Not Bad, Pass, Boring or Lame?)

The Predator returns with a sole focus: themselves.
Rather than being a part hero from the Alien VS Predator series, this movies goes back to the original concept of Predators who are hunters.
Opens in cinemas now and the question is, "How does it fare off on the big screen?". With the rise of "Eclipse", Predators might suffer a big loss in market shares because for obvious reasons girls love looking at hot guys stripping every 10 minutes of the movie.

Anyhow, coming back to Predators.
The story is pretty simple. A bunch of humans were trapped in an unknown planet and they are being hunted by the Predators. Why? How? What? When? Go watch the movie. The story is very simple as it is about survival of these humans from the Predators who are preying on them.

Graphics and sound wise, considering that this is a remake of a very well-respected film, they have to have great sounds and believable graphics and yes, they do.

Nothing much can be said about the movie due to spoilers but I think I will spoil the party a little bit. There is a scene (must be the focus) where a Predator fights off another Predator. Note that both Predators are of different species. This can only be differentiated by their mouth designs.

The cool part of this movie has to be the hunting parts by the Predators. There were quite a number of strategies and tricks used by the Predators to bait their victims and also tricks used by the humans to kill the Predators.

Is this movie a "Must Watch"?
Well... if you are a fan of Predators then the answer is very obvious.
If you are not a fan but is looking for a dark-toned, alien, action movie, then this is the movie for you. And if you are sick and tired of your girl friend calling you to watch Eclipse over and over again just for the sake of watching Edward Cullen and Jacob shirtless, then you might wan'na reward yourself for going through Eclipse by watching Predators.

It is a fair movie. Not as good as Transformers and stuff like that but it is a totally different genre. In comparison to the AVP series, Predators has more focus and simpler story.

Rating: Not Bad
