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 donโ€™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.
