The Enemy of my Enemy is my Friend..
on March 17, 2015
I came across this while browsing Amazon and thought, why not? I liked the first Predator and I had remembered hearing about this one a few years ago but never got the chance to see it.
It was actually pretty good. I think they made a good call with casting Adrien Brody because if they had cast someone who was a well-known action star, this movie could have been seen as a re-make instead of an addition to the franchise. The predators are, of course, scary and aggressive. The effects are great and you'll be reminded of all of the things you loved from the first Predator.
The basic premise: A group of people wake up as they're being parachuted into some unknown land. They're from all over the world, and none of them know each other. They soon realize that they're not alone, and this may not be Earth.
I don't want to give too much away. Things heat up pretty quickly and it makes for a very exciting film. I am left with questions about the predators, of course, but I think the point is that we're supposed to know as much as the characters know instead of being omnipotent film-watchers. The characters know very little, and by the end of the movie, you still don't know very much about the terrain or the Predators themselves. If we knew everything about the Predators, they wouldn't be so mysterious and interesting, would they?
This is definitely worth a watch, especially if you enjoy any of the Predator series!
