Predators is a great all-action DVD creature feature featuring the Predator from the 1987 Stallone movie and sequels. Predators is not a sequel but knowing what the creature is in the first place helps a bit in enjoying this really good science fictionish action movie. The Predators DVD is very good but it is the kind of movie made for the Blu-ray experience.

A special ops   (Adrian Brody) wakes up in free fall. His parachute finally opens but he lands hard. He discovers there are others in the forest with him. Soon there are 8 people on the planet. They discover a body and figure out that aside from the doctor they are all some kind of hunter or killer predator. The group eventually comes to the conclusion they are now prey to a superior species of Predator and on some kind of game preserve where they are the game

The rest of Predators is the group trying to outsmart and outlast the Predator creatures. This involves quite a few very well made and set up action scenes with fighting, guns blazing, stuff exploding, and body parts flying.

This is an excellent action science fiction creature feature where everything works. The only weak element here is the ending sets up a sequel.
