Predators arrived from Netflix  and I really enjoyed it, 8 out of 10.  This is a great Predator movie doing justice by the original movie, Predator.  Definitely an owner for Predator fans, at least a watcher for those who love action films and the  hunt.

 

I really enjoyed how Predators got into the spirit of and the philosophy behind the hunt.  It’s a franchise about hunters and hunting is the one big theme.  In this one their prey are some of the most dangerous people from earth.  The way they handle traps and trapping is also really neat.  I also liked how they dropped the idea of the hunting grounds being used as a means for the predators to evolve their hunting style, techniques, skills, and technology.
