i agree but do you think they will milk the franchise to death?

I saw this last Saturday, and loved it. I can't wait to buy it so I can play it nonstop in my house
Still gotta see it one more time in the theaters if able.

I thought Brody did a good job, and thats his real "serious" voice, he's done it in other movies, like the Jacket I believe. Either way it wasn't bad, and not annoying like Bale's.
The setting, the respect given to P1, the characters, the scenery; it really pulled me into the film.

The only part that was bunk was the Lawerence Fishbourne part. I wish they would've gone in a different direction there, but after that it picked back up and was awesome.
Topher Grace was a great choice too.

Too bad Inception(which was awesome, too) came out the very next week and took all the box office money. It really hurt Predators. They should've released it at a different time, not between all the Twilights, cartoons, and Inception. It's already doubled it's production costs, but still would've liked to see it make more.

I mean, everyone loves Predator, right? How could more people not go see this?

As many "homages" as there were to the first movie, I would have really rolled my eyes if I'd have heard that as well.

I think Danny Glover should have played the Fishburne part. That would have been neat. Obviously that would be the place to put Schwarzenegger, but obviously that just wasn't possible.

I agree, Glover would've been perfect in that role.

i liked fishburne in the role but the way he spoke about the seasons and shit that couldve been a role for arnold because his charachter was a guy who saw these things close up and hollywood couldve done something with his abduction by these predators

Because, as governor, he won't film outside of California and even then he can only do a one or two day shoot with vacation... and this would have necessitated longer.
