The Predator - Movie Review

Published on Sep 11, 2018
Predator gets another sequel, this time with more humor...which is a growing trend among blockbuster movies looking to capture that MCU magic. Here's my review of THE PREDATOR!

Comments

  • I must be literally the only one on the planet to not have hated the movie and actually found it enjoyable... I mean don't get me wrong it's a horrible predator movie alright, but I was still... entertained ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ My issues were mainly Olivia Munn's character and the ridiculous final act. They should've given Munn's character some military background to justify her over the top ridiculous combat skills (or remove her entirely that works too xD). Also remove the bonkers last predator fight scene, and instead let the movie's climax be the jungle scene, where the whole crew gets killed, and ---- has to fight the big predator on his own utilizing tactics and traps kinda like what Arnie did. It'll be believable and a nice callback to the OG Predator movie. Lastly unlike everyone else as well, I actually loved that insane predator suit in the end 😂

  • Can we all agree now that Predator 2 really wasn't that bad.

  • Bax should have had his own movie

  • I'm regreting watch a pirated version of this

  • Did they draw straws when they decided who directed this movie

  • As a huge predator fan I was looking forward to another movie as its been 8 years I just don't know what Shane black was thinking it was terrible too much comedy which really didn't work the action scenes were nothing special I think I could of done a better job

  • Easily the worst predator movie, i walked out the cinema 15 min into the film.

  • Can you make a video of the mask

  • It's so bad man, like fking terrible on every level..... It's Police Academy but with a predator in it.... and in no way shape or form is the humour anywhere near as good as Police Academy lol, just fkin terrible straight to DVD movie 100k MAX budget plot line. FYI there was no serious scene at all in this movie, the whole thing was a sht joke and I am absolutely gobsmacked Shane Black thought this was good, jesus man. 1. Kid apparently knows all alien languages in the cosmos right off the bat, even know's their technology just by looking at it and tapping it 5 times for 5 minutes. 2. Police Academy squad 3. Everyone has seen an alien before, specifically a predator since they act like it's just another day on the crazy bus seeing a predator 4. Olivia Munn must see the predator everyday, live next to them and share living costs since there is no shock or anything when she see's one and she can apparently identify alien technology at a glance, since that's her field you know? hilarious 5. Big predator know's everyone's name and looking for a kid with autism, as autism is key to race advancement for the predators Biggest joke of a movie in my life time.

  • Within 10 years this will be a cult movie.Great fun.

  • best parody movie of the year, entertaining but holy shit this went so wrong, it is like the new ghostbusters.

  • This movie wasn't as bad as predators and Prometheus fans are making it out to be.... oOops!

  • Fave Predator movies: Predator (1987)

  • My favorite part of this movie is your jacket. It's a pretty sweet jacket.

  • Shane Black you are one stupid son of a bitch !! I just saw this movie; what a big mess you made with it !! This Predator movie was suppose to be serious from start to finish but you turned it into a comedy show with silly and lame jokes ! I pray you NEVER get to write or direct anymore movies ! You son of a bitch !!

  • I thought it was really good! It went from a ninja to a savage barbarian. Also how it was defeated was better than other films. It used multiple trsined soldiers, predator tech and the predog to beat it. Bullets did hurt them it just took alot of them (alot alot) like a video game were you shoot the boss millions of times to finally kill is with the same said gun. 1st predator was more artsy and gritty but thats cuz they were actually in a horrible jungle to film lol but this film aint bad its just not the murderous space ninja people wanted but more like a murderous space conan the barbarian.

  • next will be predator vs ironman

  • Ive made it my full time job to tell everyone how awful this movie was. WTH were they thinking? So many questions no answers ugh

  • Wtf!! Absolutely crap. Shane black should hang himself.. by the gonads

  • Olivia Munn is HOT...

  • This movie is an absolute piece of crap and the Predator franchise is officially dead and buried now

  • I liked it🤷🏽‍♂️

  • HAhahaha nice

  • I didn't have much expectations because I heard about the bad reviews. But man, I was still disappointed lol

  • This movie is trash!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • This movie sheet the dude is a pussy using his technology

  • this one is going into the same bin as the book of shadow, love it for some reasons or concept, but this shit has to be forgotten by everybody,,,

  • what I wish they would have had was the gift be royce that would have been wild

  • This predator movie or If I can even call this a predator movie was the worst...over cliche scenes,stereotypical characters,24/7 of bad jokes and cursing,killing off characters that we never had a chance to bond with, and the plot was just thrown everywhere like I was really confused on what the actual story was about...smh we deserve better than this.

  • Dessert review?

  • I just watched it. I didn't expect much. Even with the dumb parts, I actually enjoyed the movie. It was like a big budget b movie. I think people are taking this stuff way too serious. It was a good laugh and it was over the top. For me I was entertained by how bad it was. I would like a better predator movie but fuck it. It is what it is.

  • I liked it

  • Constantine with Keanu Reeves was litty. Bouta watch this Comedy

  • The guy with Tourettes is suddenly cured half way through? The autistic kid is kinda not autistic at all lol

  • I really liked this one (-_^ )

  • Complete and utter disappointment, a script that has more holes in it than Swiss cheese coupled with extremely poor acting. In fact it was like the actors were making their lines up as they went along ...it was that bad. I wanted to see more of the predator than these cheese ball actors with their bad lines and cliches! I was left wanting! Even pissed up, I still wouldn't enjoy this pile of shite movie. A bad day for predator fans!, do yourselves a favour and save your hard earned cash... this film doesn't even warrant being shown on Netflix!

  • Worst movie of the predator franchise . Worst part, was playing fetch with the alien dog!!!!!!

  • cameron is the only one who can bring back predator in a big way! he cant go wrong

  • I guess with The Predator they couldn't really have a better story than Predator or Predators and couldn't have the suspense and feeling of something new of Predator so they just made a funny violent action movie- I mean nothing's gonna be better than the original

  • The predator 2018 verses predators from 2010

  • movie sucked so bad 3/10 ... I don´t ever want to see it again

  • everyone cracking jokes hi jinx That's the bread and butter of the soldier. I think this movie was aimed at young vets

  • PREDATOR IN THE MCU CONFIRMED!!!!!! (this is a joke)

  • I most definitely dip my french fries in my shake lol

  • that thumbs up scene made me think the predator rolled a nat 20 on his charisma roll..... just what the fuck shane black.

  • the energy in this review is perfect!

  • best predator to date; whoopi goldberg....

  • theon grejoy was awesome. i was hoping that he would live. although it was unlikely.

  • This dude acts like predator lore is just a handful of movies

  • It was good not the best but good I give it a 7/10

  • I liked it 🤷🏻‍♂️

  • Yeah let’s all collectively try and forget this steaming pile of horse shit.

  • Thats not Predators, thats more like Sports Hunter.. Yeah, but we took a vote and Predator sounds cooler, right? Fuck yeah..

  • Entertaining as hell though

  • Started out great but the ending was oh so disrespectful to the predator race.

  • Nice jacket

  • i knew it whould suck

  • Predator 10/10 Predator 2 7/10 AVP 6/10 AVPR 4/10 Predators 8/10 The Predator 5/10

  • *•Predator* (7.2/10) *•Predator 2* (6.3/10) *•Predators* (6.5/10) *•The Predator* (7.0/10) ------------------------------------ *•Alien vs Predator* [Unrated Cut] (6.7/10) *•AVPR: Alien vs Predator Requiem* (5.0/10)

  • you forgot to mention the father and son failed dynamic. I had no feeling towards it. Felt disconnected to me

  • Man, the director of this mess doesn't deserve another job in his life.. seriously, lol

  • No broh, it wasn't even entertained, it was really disappointing.

  • I'd really like to just forget this movie ever happened.

  • It feels like im watching iron man 4 " predator man "

  • this movie should be ashame, im a better predator in real life :)

  • I hope to god that Shane Black never touches the predator franchise ever again

  • Look, a ''good movie'' is entirely subjective. If you let these youtubers determine your opinion before watching it for yourself, you are just missing out on what could be a great movie to YOU. I watched the movie and for what it was, it was a fantastic and very enjoyable experience. The cast had amazing chemistry and I got to see the predator on screen for a vast majority of the film. Literally got to see the predator destroy things/people every 2 minutes and they did NOT whatsoever hold back on the gore. Wow this movie was so fun. Stop comparing this film to a slow burning thriller and the predator predecessor films because it is not in the same category. Jeremy Blands I mean Jahns, must be so fun at parties, I can imagine him just complaining about ''character development'' and ''film compositions'' throughout. Learn to just have fun ffs. I had to let that out. Anyways, Peace and Love

    • Gabe KC Awh did me insulting your fave reviewer make you cry boo hoo. FOH lame ass.

    • +F K Don't try to gain a moral high ground at this point, you personally insulted a reviewer because he dared to point out a faulty movie's faults.

    • Gabe KC that’s not my point, I’m just saying not to let their opinions determine others.

    • That's what reviwers do.

  • I’m still shocked that they could’ve fucked up avp twice

  • Nearly every damn sci fi tv/movie the humans always bring normal guns to shoot things that are obviously impervious to bullets! And yet they keep trying. Finally in the MIB movies they got it, when dealing with a sci fi threat, you need sci fi guns, DUH. Is this movie considered to be cannon with the rest of the Predator movies? Don't they have various alien tech they could reverse engineer from previous encounters? Even Godzilla has this mega flame thrower breath and skin several feet thick, I know, let's try bullets! Bullets will kill it, yeahh!!!

  • speak slower man!! and yes the movie is shit

  • waiting for Ted vs Predator.

  • In 1987 the Predator managed to kill Shane Black. In 2018, Shane Black managed to kill the Predator.

    • underrated comment by far

    • you deserve to be on top comment section Sir

  • The movie was actually pretty good. I love action/comedies. It's very entertaining and bring in a new type of predator. In previous predators we got glimpses of different predators but they had cameos and never were a big part of the movie. I wish they didn't have that much comedy but the movie was very entertaining to say the least. Predator 5/5 Predator 2 4/5 Alien vs Predator 3.5/5 Alien vs Predator Requiem 3/5 Predators vs 4/5 The Predator 3.5/5

  • It wasn’t that bad for me honestly. It was certainly entertaining and could just be another harmless action romp. The problem is it has the Predator name and franchise attached to it, so it could have certainly done with a bit more horror which I was expecting but didn’t get. Gone is the element of surprise, it’s just out in the open and doesn’t give a fuck. Also, too many characters!!! I know you need goofy “loveable” sidekicks, but the kid (still love Jacob Tremblay) and Olivia Munn’s character could have easily been scrapped. And that ending scene is just a blatant “YOU’RE GETTING A SEQUEL” moment.

  • I loved the movie! It was funny and a worthy sequel. The haters are gonna hate.

  • Lets just face the fact that Hollywood can no longer make an actual movie...but at least the movies are shiny and familiar...and the trailers have big loud sounds and sub drops.

  • Really enjoyed the first half. Kinda got Independence day resurgence vibes at the end wit that magic ironman suit. Was a person sized pod with the "Predator Killer" inside. I shook my head when it wasn't Adrien Brody.

  • all hollywood is shit for many years now.... wake up there is no magic in this generation of filmakers

  • Predator 1 was the best 10/10, you will never top it, predator 2 to me seemed like a fake predator movie the way it was directed so 6/10 AVP had real cool scenes when predators fought the aliens but all the humans were boring & lame, specially when they made that girl be like the kill bill of aliens. So 7/10 Predator requiem was garbage, you couldn’t see shot in that movie & the characters sucked too, well everyone sucked in that movie, the predator alien looked like a robot, didn’t have much mobility so 3/10 Predators I actually enjoyed it, had good action, I just didn’t like the predator dog, those were stupid & fake asf, I don’t need dogs when I have a bad ass predator but I give it a 8/10, the predator movie was all comedy, huge predator was so fake & there was no need for a huge predator, that looked so terrible, I just wanted to see my regular predators, those are 100 times more bad ass, the predator dogs again sucked, don’t need dogs. That predator killing machine was like that fucken iron man suit, a shit load of garbage in this movie too, also I don’t want little kids in the predator movies, specially if they’re rated R. Makes the movie seem childish for kids to watch. 5/10

  • Fuck this movie, I read lots of reviews before watching and was aware that it wasn't that great but holy shit it was bad, what the hell is going on with all of the jokes? It's constant and that black dude scientists stupid laugh all the time chewing gum with his big mouth, fuck I hate this movie, gonna go watch 1987 predator now followed by predators 2010

  • I mean, I really enjoyed this movie, no scratch that, I loved it, it made me laugh, I love Boyd Hollbrook, and I really enjoyed the action and the humour. Everyone’s entitled to their opinion and that’s mine. I hope they make a sequel to this.

  • Jeremy is being too biased this time not giving it a dogshit rating

  • This movie is absolutely garbage

  • Too be fare THEY ARE ALL INSANE

  • just another SHITTY movie !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it was literally NOTHING !!!!! words cannot describe it , because it IS NOTHING !!! there is NOTHING to see in this movie , there is no story , there is no predator , it is one big JOKE . and even that was a failure , because the joke never went any where . save yourself the money , the effort , the time , the disappointment , the question afterwards "why didn't i listen to this guy ? " .

  • Eat Your Pussy

  • The movie is absurd it is dumb in a way has just enough staying power to keep you hook in the end. The premise is so 90's movie with quirks. The pussy joke inside the motel is cringe and crazy bizarre

  • I hope I'm not the only one who never saw Predator as being nothing more than a 'Tongue-in-Cheek' franchise

  • This movie is just trash.

  • Can you do a simple favor movie review

  • No it's dog shit

  • 3:19 I paused it... oops

  • The kid in the movie was so annoying I was rooting for the preadator to rip him in half 😡

  • This movie sucked

  • I got a refund half an hour into the movie at the cinema

  • I actually saw the movie yesterday and it was better than I thought honestly..... I give it a solid 7/10

  • Big fan of P1 P2 Predators....but this is utterly RUBBISH ....2/10 ....next chapter transformers vs predators ....RUBBISH... .waste of £3.50 on Crazy Tuesdays

  • This is the Predator meets suicide squad. Fuckin shite

  • Nice jacket

  • I'm looking for people to invite to see it this weekend. Can you understand the movie without having watched the other films?
