I don't know, maybe it's just me, but this was a really weird flick. It's like the writer/director wanted to make a "Predator" flick but weren't exactly sure what they wanted it to be about. Or, more likely, they wanted to put out a movie that would profit from the previous success of the Predator series and didn't care what it was about. It's like several ideas glued together with none of them ever being resolved.
I saw at least two totally feasible scenarios in which the humans could have managed to fight their way to freedom, but neither was followed and the ending offers nothing but a giant question mark. The movie even reveals ideas about different species of Predators but doesn't follow through with that either.
All in all, I was fairly disappointed by this Predator flick. The previous two Predator movies, and even AVP, highlighted the ability of the human spirit to triumph over a technologically and physically superior alien race. This movie doesn't seem to highlight much of anything, other than poor film making. If only they had followed through with some the ideas they presented, this could have been a much better presentation. In summary, tons of potential with no follow through.
I would have to say, I was very excited to hear about a new Predators movie coming out. I very much enjoyed the previous ones and they seemed to get better.
This movie started out great with a good plot and group of characters. Then it seemed to lose it's heat toward the middle into the end. Most of the second half of the movie was in the dark and it was difficult to see what was happening. I personally can't stand movies in which you can't see anything!
Overall, started well but needed more lighting at the end. There also needed to be a better ending. Most of the Predator movies were known for pretty good endings but this one was disappointing. Not recommeded!
