Predators, 2010 - ★★★½

This would be a much better film if, like the protagonists, you could see it without knowing what it was about. Unfortunately the title and synopsis (not to mention trailers, franchises, the web and modern film marketing) means this is impossible. Even knowing what's going on the film still manages to create a good enough sense of mystery for the first 45 minutes or so. Once the Predators are revealed it becomes a lot less interesting but still manages to be a fun action film. Brody is also surprisingly good as a leading action man.
