Just saw the movie Predators, and it's not bad.  Unlike the last two hackjobs, this was pretty good- did a lot of sideflings to the original movies without being painful, nonsensical copypastes, had great effects.  My main complaints are that it does a fairly good job on the human end of things, but A) the planet is too earthlike, B) they need to crank the octane up just a touch higher- the jungle's not claustrophic and dark enough in the beginning, and C) they needed more Pred moments.  Those were some of the coolest bits in the first two movies, I always thought- where you're following the human action, and then suddenly you're seeing the monster going about its preparations and repairwork.

I never thought I would be able to take Adrien Brodie seriously as a badass, callous action hero.  I mean, I just saw him in Splice, which was advertised as Species: the Remake but turned out to be Frankenstein meets Flowers in the Attic.  But he's pretty good in this.
