    A worthy successor to the original this movie is not. It has none of the suspense, none of the tension... it takes the predator franchise in silly directions.
    A predator, which is supposed to be stronger, smarter than humans, has better tech, travels intergalacticly etc. can be taken out by a gang of wisecracking misfits almost at will now?
    Decent popcorn action movie. Not much of a worthy expansion of the predator universe. This franchise is pretty much dead.
    John Mctiernan caught lightning in the bottle with the first movie. I think we should resign ourselves to the fact that no other predator movie will ever be as good again.
    Either that, or we give James Cameron a swing at it.

    I`m not Predator fan, The Nun was bad reviews too but we don`t care as long as the moviegoers love it right?? The Fox was not happy because Predator was expensive movie.. The Nuns budget is 20 million.. Congrats to all the the cast of the movie and Warner brother!

    because we are in a state of idiocy , Alot of people fed off the hype , past fans expecting something but ultimately didn't get what they saw , Alot of people who enjoy stupid pointless humor in their films . Another film will get less attention because of theis new one just like star wars then media will just turn it into some kind of men hating thing

    The movie was shit, the story had potential but was lame, the script was shit, the whole movie was shot in the dark, the CGI looked weak and when this movie cost 88 million dollars, they were badly ripped off. Looks like a cheap b movie adaptation! Don't waste your money!

    Wow, if you doing worst than 'The Mummy' Black & Fox Studio are doing things wrong. Well, at least there were no 'Dark Universe' type logo in the beginning lol. I didn't like this movie because of its plot and bad editing. People like Sterling K. would disappear without explanation(including the pit bull) for example. People cringed(including myself) when Nebraska killed himself after we learned about his backstory. I like the actors including Sterling K, Nebraska, Munn and lessers like Key. Ironically, I thought I was going hate Key's character from the trailers, but ending up disliking Quinn's character. Nebraska had the better backstory than the lead, which is strange. I HATED the end of this movie! So, I guess the studio going for an Iron Man Predator. Everything about the ending was stupid, and no one in my audience clapped like we usually do at the end...

    • Just Ricky!
      Just Ricky! Month ago +1

      This is the dumbest reply I ever got. I didn't mention race, but it sounds like you are looking for it esp. if you think it puts down white male actors. I said Munn was good and lessor actors. If you watched the movie you would know Quinn was just a generic character, yet Nebraska had a better storyline. And I said in my original post that it was strange for a costar to have better backstory than the star. Now keep your white supremacy to yourself and your kind.

    This movie broke me. If this is the best Hollywood can do with this character, then I hope this is the last one for good.
    The first one did such a brilliant job at establishing the Predator, that it baffles me how inconsistent and superfluous it's been since. The second one did a good job at trying to change things while keeping some of the original charm, despite it's flaws. Even AvP tried to add to the lore in a meaningful way, meager execution notwithstanding.
    This however...was garbage. From the inconsistent Alien tech (biometric systems seem forgein to the space traveling race), bad VFXs, cringe characters, and over abundance of plot devices that includes the kid (a recurring thing for Shane Black).
    This had no redeeming qualities as a movie in general.

    • ToroidalVortexLove
      ToroidalVortexLove Month ago +1

      The ending completely changed from the original script. Not just the Arnie cameo leaving, but the motivation of the original Predator and the contents of that pod all changed. Could have been Shane Black's decision but I suspect it was the studio that wanted to tease a sequel. 100 percent want a Shane Black cut.

  • ClayDog Madman

    There's so much potential in the Predator franchise that these genius won't even tap into...
    How about they explore into another time frame era, like a Western era type, like cow boys and Aliens of some sort, but only on a much better scale...
    As I mentioned before, they could even have the Predator movie in the Egyptian era in reference to the flashback scenes that we saw in the Alien vs. Predator movie...
    So much untapped potential in this franchise and these clowns won't even explore, they still insist on fucking around with the same bunk ass tiering concept...

    Dude I saw the movie and it was Garbo....it wasn't funny, the group of "heros" was a lackluster bunch and the whole premise was really stupid. It reminded me of the mummy returns but nowhere near as good. Like u got a father who is a badass, finds "tech" that somehow the son gets a hold of, u got a small time bad guy and a larger big time bad guy....ehhlike I rather have a whole movie following the smaller predator and his fucking storyline...having humans in predator movies is stupid. It's like having AVP but u got mainly humans in the movie...I want to see mainly Aliens versus predators...it's the whole transformers argument. I want to see transformers not fucking humans
