Predators (USA, 107 min.)
Dir: Nimrod Antal; Writ: Alex Litvak & Michael Finch.
Starring: Adrien Brody, Alice Braga, Topher Grace, Laurence Fishburne, Danny Trejo.
Replacing Arnold in the Predator franchise is Adrien Brody as a nameless Black-Ops soldier who wakes up in midair as he hurtles towards the ground. Once safely landed, he encounters a bunch of other mercenaries that are equally puzzled by their sudden appearance is this mysterious rain forest. They’re mostly all nameless, so you know we’re as deep in allegory land as we are in the jungle. Yep, that’s right: Predators is a message movie!
