Theatrical Release: July 9, 2010


“Predators” follows a group of elite warrior-types who are being hunted by members of a race of merciless alien trackers called Predators.

Adam Brody is a man who ends up inheriting the mantle of leader and is known as a hunter of men. Topher Grace would play an accountant-type whose unassuming facade masks a dangerous serial killer.

Dove Review

A group of soldiers find themselves placed on another planet and they must deal with being prey for predator hunters who are advanced in their hunting methods, and who have a technology beyond that of the soldiers. Describing the predators as beasts is very accurate. The soldiers must learn to survive and become hunters or be hunted themselves as the prey.

This movie is loaded with suspenseful moments and “jump” scenes in which sudden events and music jar the viewer. The story is rather interesting but, unfortunately, the violence level and sexual comments, as well as the language and nudity content prevent us from being able to award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this movie as a family-friendly film. There is, in addition, a strong comment about using drugs.
