Saw it last night at an advanced screening. Would give it a 6/10. Laurence Fishburn was just fucking stupid in the movie.

Even if it sucks i'm sure you'll come here and tell everyone how awesome you thought it was, just to disagree with me.

not true at all. If I think it sucks, I will be amazingly disappointed, but I'm not gonna lie about it just to disagree with someone. If I do like it however, I will be overloaded with joy and promote the shit out of it

just came back from this.

ok, i got there with low expectations and came out quite.. satisfied. it's a good tribute to the original (MUCH better than both AvP combined (as if that says anything :)), and, go ahead and flame me for it, up to a point it was even better than Pred2 :P). acting was good, directing was solid, comic relief was ok. writing could've been much better and i expected more preds in it. i didn't like the end at all (typical hollywood bullshit with the bad guys taking forever to kill the good guys just to get killed and anti-hero badass having a stupid "change of heart") and 2 more parts irritated me ([SPOILERS] 1) the pred dogs. i can't believe experienced, hardened soldiers can't hit dogs the size of small horses running straight at them. moronic 2) the rescue of topher grace's character. i understand they "needed" to do it so that they could "expose" him in a dramatic and predictable fashion (like it wasn't fucking obvious he wasn't "just a doc") later on, but still...[/SPOILERS]).

tl;dr: overall an enjoyable movie and a worthy addition to the franchise

also, they need to drop this "modern times" setting for any future Alien/Pred/AvP and start doing movies in the "colonial marines" era. just sayin'

not good enough, imo (minor SPOILERS: there are basically no "stealth kills" except for the one when they "introduce" the predators. and too many "one dude stays behind to try to kill/slow down a pred" moments. and in these one-on-ones the new preds (the bigger ones), that are supposed to be more badass than the "classic" ones, seem weaker and slower than the preds in the original movies).

and no skinned bodies (and that's another thing that kinda bugged me: in the first 15 or so minutes of the movie they find a dead body killed by a predator. but it was neither skinned nor was the skull/spine removed)

one more thing: they reused about 80-90% of Silvestri's original score and it works really well. smart move

I have this comic around somewhere, cool artwork and story.



The first book opens with a boxing match in Gotham. Each of the fighters are backed by two of Gotham’s biggest gangsters — Alex Yeager and Leo Brodin. When the winner of the fight is killed in his apartment shortly after the bout, Batman is called in to help investigate the crime. Though accusations are directed against Brodin, the sponsor of the losing fighter, the grisly yet unusual murder (consisting of spine and skull removal) suggest otherwise. Batman’s main goal initially is to avoid a battle on the streets of Gotham between the two mob bosses — the death of the losing boxer only making matters more complicated.
In an attempt to defuse the conflict, the mayor of Gotham arranges a meeting between the two crime lords during which Yeager is murdered by an intruder. Clues lead Batman to the killer's hideout but in a deadly duel he comes close to losing his life to the Predator, who escapes. Batman gets back to Wayne Manor where his butler Alfred sees to his injuries.
Over the next few days, and in the absence of the Dark Knight, the Predator takes out Yeager's manipulative assistant, Brodin and Gotham's current mayor in a series of calculated assaults. Commissioner Gordon himself is almost killed in his own home by the hunter, but escapes. Batman attempts to recover quickly, knowing the death toll rises every day. A countdown is initiated by the National Guard and SWAT teams: if Batman does not show before the end of the countdown, they plan to flush the Predator out of hiding by searching street by street, a tactic that will likely take more lives than would be saved.
Batman, nowhere near healed yet able to walk, plans one last face-to-face match with the Predator, using a specially-designed powered sonar exoskeleton suit to increase his strength and compensate for his recovering blindness and the Predator's stealth technology. The battle begins on the roof of the Gotham City Police Department, continues in the Batcave and ends on the outskirts of Wayne Manor. Batman finally defeats the Predator just as its ship lands, with others of its kind disembarking. The defeated Predator honorably commits suicide with a sword which the Predator commander then presents to Batman before leaving. Batman is confident that the Predators will not return after having met what lives in Gotham.

Only good thing about the film was Alice Braga and her sleek, sexy snipper riffle.

What another freakin' waste of a cool franchise. The 7.9 rating on imdb so far is incredible.
