The newest sequel/reboot to Predator.
'The Predator' Review
Yes, 'The Predator' is a bit of a mess. Given Shane Black’s involvement, it pains me to admit this. It scores points for being a passable piece of counter-programming following months of largely PG-13 fare. But that's not enough to match my high expectations.
'The Predator' Review
These days I rarely go into a big-budget, franchise film knowing next to nothing about what I'm about to see. However, I was able to avoid all the trailers and promotion for “The Predator” and went into this reboot cold. And I’ve never watched any of the old installments - from the ’87 original with ARNOLD (the year 1987 is referenced heavily in this one), to the Danny Glover sequel, “vs. Alien” battles and 2010’s “Predators” with Adrien Brody.
