I went to see Predators last week with my good friend William. We were lured by the 63% Rotten Tomatoes score from the critics and 77% from the community. The reviews promised a back to basics approach for the movie with a darker, scarier tone similar to the original with Schwarzenegger.
Unfortunately despite the presence of Adrian Brody, the movie did not deliver. It was not scary. You don’t care about the characters. The plot is laughable. Laurence Fishburne, who seems to be on the same diet as Russell Crowe, makes a brief pointless paycheck appearance.
We were looking for dark, gritty, entertaining mindless action. Instead, we got a pointless bland movie.
