REEL DEAL: Predators

Another action-suspense flick that I thought I would not appreciate but really made my day. Predators was a movie to see as you would get into different emotions as the hunt begins between the humans and the "predators".
I love the new way of how this suspense classic is told in a new story in a new location. It actually made more mysteries regarding the creature that seem to be invincible. With men who never knew each other, they are brought to a unknown planet. Their only option is to survive or be a trophy.
I was a wee boy when I saw a predator movie yet, I felt there were the elements of nostalgia upon the how the movie was made. There was no complicated riddles or codes that need to be discovered, its was pratically survive or die.
It might seem to be unfair for the humans since they are inferior with the creatures and with limited tools and ammunition , they find ways on how to outwit the hunters that in the first place they don't know how did they get there.
It opens up a lot of questions even at the end, and also a promising sequel. The cast was so diverse since they came from different places and nationalities. It was very good in keeping suspense without doing a lot of 'surprise' effects. And even whatever mood you are in, this movie can make sure you won't regret watching a classic again on the big screen.

Deliberation time kids!
