(Newser) Predators is getting mostly decent reviews as a sequel to the alien-hunting-humans original, 1987's Predator. Adrien Brody stars.

  • Lou Lumenick, New York Post: "After 23 years and three attempts, Predators finally delivers a solid sequel to the Arnold Schwarzenegger B-movie classic."
  • Kurt Loder, MTV: It's "a B movie that knows its job, and does it. Which means, among other things, that making sense is not on its to-do list."

  • Eric D. Snider, This sequel wisely "takes the story back to its jungle roots." It's not great, "but it's good enough, executing its simple premise with tension and testosterone to spare."
  • Claudia Puig, USA Today: Meh. "The fascination wears off as the initial premise never becomes fleshed out and plot holes loom larger than the monstrous mayhem."
