"Predators" (Blu-ray) - Reviewed by John Johnson

Predators

Synopsis

A group of people with varying backgrounds, mostly violent, are dropped onto an island, provided with weapons, and discover, to their horror, that they are prey to the Predators. Now, you may remember what the original Predator looked like. Well, these guys are an order of magnitude up on the Nasty scale. They look like a combination of the Preditor and the Alien, with huge teeth instead of tentacles.

Along the bloody path to survival, the group meets Noland (Fishburne) who explains that the Predators bring creatures from other planets so they can hunt them and sharpen their skills. He also tells them that the first generation Predators are feuding with the latest generation, and that to escape the island, the group should help the original Predators, including one that is being held captive and who might lead the group to a ship that can take them all away from this terrible place.
