Our Score
The worst bad guys the Earth has to offer are transported to another planet as prey in director Nimrod Antal's back-to-basics reboot of the invisible-alien-hunter franchise. Tenuously linked to the 1987 classic, and produced by fan boy Robert Rodriguez, this human predator vs intergalactic predator battle royale is a serviceably solid sci-fi action thriller. Admittedly, there are few fresh tricks on display, or innovations in the design of the invisibility-cloaked, dreadlocked creatures. (Though notable additions include crazed survivor Laurence Fishburne, spiky CGI dogs used by the non-human hunters and a left-field serial-killer twist.) But despite the lack of visual originality, a crackling atmosphere of menace is well created and maintained, as the group of killers led by a buff Adrien Brody try to work out what's happening - or about to happen - to them. Which, as Alice Braga's impressive Israeli sniper alone seems to have worked out, will be very much trap-and-kill business as usual.

Summary

Hardened fighters from all over the world, including military veterans and ruthless criminals, are abducted by aliens and transported to a dangerous jungle world. As they struggle to survive, they discover why they have been brought to the planet - to be used as prey in a big-game hunt. Sci-fi thriller sequel, with Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, Alice Braga, Danny Trejo and Laurence Fishburne.
