Robert Rodriguez and Nimród Antal directing Predators

I was one of the people praising the Robert Rodriguez-produced Nimrod Antal-directed Predator sequel Predators a few weeks back. I even screened the film twice. Don’t get me wrong, the movie is far from perfect, but for a lower budget studio sci-fi effort, it’s better than most — and certainly better than Predator 2 or the two Alien vs. Predator films.
