"We're going to need a new plan," Adrien Brody's grunt intones upon grasping he's on the wrong planet.

It wasn't clear that they had an old one in this shoot-em-up, testosterone-fuelled tosh. Predators feels like the result of two teenage boys talking about action films long into the night. "Like, uh huh huh, let's have a Yakuza dude, a mercenary [Brody], FBI's most wanted, a drug lord and a bunch of soldiers abducted by predators and then, huh, dumped in an alien world. And let's throw in that Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) dude from The Matrix." It's not as effective as Schwarzenegger's original but Nimród Antal's actioner is still very watchable.
