Hollywood Buzz #89

O que se diz lá fora sobre PREDATORS, de Nimród Antal:



«The movie is mostly about our nasty heroes being attacked by terrifying antagonists in incomprehensible muddles of lightning-fast special effects. It lacks the quiet suspense of the first PREDATOR, and please don't even mention the ALIEN VS. PREDATOR pictures, which lacked the subtlety of MOTHRA VS. GODZILLA.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.

«As its momentum accelerates, and its special effects transform it into a pulpy cartoon, PREDATORS loses its judgment and turns into a frantic, clichéd chase film. This chaotic stew of fire, blood, mud and explosives is so devoid of terror and suspense that any metaphorical analysis is rendered moot.»
Stephen Holden, The New York Times.

«Perfs are adequate in a movie lacking much use for better ones, though Brody disappoints by using the stock sotto voce rasp of the uber-macho action hero who really, really means business.»
Dennis Harvey, Variety.

«Very much bearing the creative imprint of Robert Rodriguez, but directed by Nimrod Antal, the new edition, in its best moments, is an unabashed B-movie that plays like a jacked-up TWILIGHT ZONE" with award-winning actors delivering the pulp-infused dialogue.»
Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter.

«As a fan of Schwarzenegger's macho, heart-of-darkness original, it gives me no pleasure to say that PREDATORS is an uninspired mess of mediocre action scenes strung together until the final reel.»
Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly.
