Now that you've seen it, what did you think? It all began back in 1987 when Arnold Schwarzenegger and John McTiernan introduced us to the badass alien species known as Predator. Now genre king Robert Rodriguez is back with Predators, which lands in theaters today, directed by Nimród Antal and starring Adrien Brody, Laurence Fishburne, Topher Grace, Alice Braga, Walton Goggins and Oleg Taktarov. So how is the movie? Is it a great reboot of a beloved sci-fi franchise or not? How was Brody in the lead and the rest of the cast as well? If you've seen it, leave a comment below and let us know what you thought of Predators!
To fuel the fire, I just saw this movie for a second time last night and I totally loved it. It's fantastic to finally have another Predators movie that is awesome to watch, fully R-rated, and doesn't come anywhere close to sucking as much as either of the AVP movies. Predators is as great of a sequel/reboot as we're going to get and I love the setup and story on it, just following these characters through a foreign jungle. It may not top the original, but not much can. That said, for a bit of summer entertainment, Predators is now at the top of my list. I thought it was an awesome and entertaining return of a great sci-fi franchise. Bring on the sequel!
What did you think of Predators? An awesome franchise reboot or another bad action flick?
