Predators Blu-Ray + Digital Copy Review

Predators Blu-Ray + Digital Copy Review

Synopsis: Robert Rodriguez presents Predators, a bold new chapter in the Predator universe. Adrien Brody stars as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors mysteriously brought together on a jungle planet. But when these cold-blooded human “predators” find themselves in all-out war against a new breed of alien Predators, it’s the ultimate showdown between hunter and prey.

Review: The original Predator was recently released in a great 'Ultimate Hunter Edition' blu-ray that we reviewed to high marks here on the Legion.  This year we also get the latest installment in the Predator franchise "Predators".  This film was produced by Robert Rodriguez and served as a merciful reprieve from the Alien vs. Predator disastors that have been coming out over the past few years.   What is great about the Predator franchise is that no characters carry over from film to film.  You don't need Sigourney Weaver, like you do in Aliens.  You don't need Arnold..you only need Predators!  

Predators was cast very well and each character truly has a place.  People are dropped on an alien planet and wake up in mid-fall to the ground.  They don't know each other or why they are there.  It soon becomes clear that they are being hunted and they learn that they are on a giant game preserve used each season by the Predators.  They learn this the hard way, as they fall one by one both by Predators and other new and vicious creatures.  The end battle sequence is something to behold.   The film plays a lot of homage to the original 'Arnold fights the alien in the jungle' film, much to the delight of hardcore fans.  This one is highly recommended by the Legion.

The blu-ray is full of special features!  The blu-ray special features include: Disc 1: Blu-ray Theatrical Feature, Commentary by Robert Rodriguez and Nimr√≥d Antal, Motion Comics, Moments of Extraction,Crucified, Evolution of the Species: Predators Reborn, The Chosen, Fox Movie Channel presents Making a Scene, Deleted and Extended Scenes, Theatrical Trailer, Disc 2: Digital Copy
