(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, EricDSnider.com: 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."
