Sexual references left out of main review!!!

Not appropriate for children. So thankful I accidentally clicked the link for another review site when coming to check here. This reviewer missed the most inappropriate things in the movie! I couldn't care less about most violence, but perverse sexual references are not something I allow my children to be exposed to. Its the main reason I check Common Sense Media before watching any new movie with my family. From the other review site : A man stares at a woman's back side and mentions what an "awesome ass" she has. A man shows a tattoo of a topless woman on his stomach. A man says he hopes to rape many women when he gets back home. Leaving out such hugely inappropriate language is not okay! Common Sense Media *used* to be great about catching every little thing, but in recent years it's really gone down hill. There has been more than one occasion where they left out huge, major issues. Sadly can no longer trust the reviews here to always be 100% accurate. Very disappointing. If I had trusted this review and watched with my family I would be LIVID right now!

It has talk about drugs and rape, so we shut it off.

It seemed cool at first, but one of the main characters said something about the ladys butt, then later on talked about doing cocaine and raping women. We shut it off, because we dont like trash like that.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (17 ):
Kids say (37 ):

Almost totally abandoning any storylines from the not very good Predator predecessors, this movie is admirably stripped-down and simplified. Director Nimrod Antal and producer Robert Rodriguez keep the pace nimble, using the jungle setting for maximum atmosphere. Even the rest breaks between attacks contain a tingly sense of dread.

The script, on the other hand, never goes very deep. For example, one character is seen removing his expensive shoes (to avoid getting them muddy), and nothing ever comes of it. And the idea of two different races of predators isn't used very interestingly, either. Nor does Predators do anything interesting with the wild card character, the doctor played by Grace. Still, it's easy to forgive this lapse of imagination while enjoying the movie's well-engineered action and mood.
