A mercenary reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they've been brought together on an alien planet... as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers - mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members - human "predators" that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators.
Sci-Fi Action Adventure - Like the previous films in the series, this is a violent and bloody
science fiction action thriller. Fans of Laurence Fishburne will be
disappointed by his very limited screen time, but Adrien Brody fans
will not be by his big action hero turn. Constant language and gore
make the film inappropriate for children.
PROFANITY: Well over 30 F-words, 20 S-words, 3 GD's, a few others. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Fights, gunplay, stabbings, splatter. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: A drugging. ACTION: Chases, fights, explosions. COMEDY: Some darkly comic moments and lines.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average Although it's arguably not saying much, this is the second-best movie of the series to have "Predator" in the title. It's solidly entertaining for what it is...
Roger EbertFull Review Average The movie is mostly about our nasty heroes being attacked by terrifying antagonists in incomprehensible muddles of lightning-fast special effects. It lacks the quiet suspense of the first "Predator,”...
USA TodayFull Review Above Average From the first scene and for a while afterward, Predators lures in an unsuspecting audience and keeps it on edge.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 128 moviegoers:
TEENS:These male reviews are pretty good, but when you consider that this is a movie made for young males, it makes these reviews somewhat disappointing. The problem is the high number of "Good," and lower reviews. Still, half of the guys loved "Predators," so there's still a pretty good chance that you will also love it.
The female reviews aren't great, but they're not bad at all considering the type of movie this is. They show that three-quarters of the ladies enjoyed "Predators" very much and the rest rated it average.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Considering that this is a movie made for young males, these male reviews are disappointing. Very few rated it "Fantastic" and many rated it "Good," or lower. That's not a good combination and indicates a movie that's enjoyable but certainly nothing special. The female reviews show that half loved "Predators," but most of the rest were disappointed.
ADULTS:The male and female reviews are very similar. They indicate a movie that most found entertaining, but certainly not great. Most reviews are in the average to above average range, which is disappointing.
