Predators

What this movie sorely lacks is any real sense of fear. Predators was directed by Nimród Antal (Vacancy), but it was produced by Austin-based filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, whose fingerprints are all over it. Like most of Rodriguez's work, it only comes alive when it's at its most gleefully juvenile, as limbs get sliced and body cavities are torn open and the Predators spew neon-green blood.
