Predators (2010)

PRED_B_Eng1sht (Page 1)

A group of elite warriors parachute into an unfamiliar jungle and are hunted by members of a merciless alien race. (IMDb)
Sure, the self-serious expository dialogue is a little contrived and cheesy at points (lots of “what’s going on?!”) but when the actual plot is written and directed as well as it is, you can let it slide. Right from the opening pre-title plunge, the unraveling mystery and monster-suspense–while nothing groundbreaking–is presented appreciably well (acting, cinematography, and music are all solid). The first character twist is a good one, but the last one isn’t (where was the motivation?).
7/10 (Good)
