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 think the predators in this movie are more of bullets sponges. It does damage but it takes a shit ton of them and several explosives to finally take the bastards down.

  • Shane Black should be ashamed of himself for directing this hot pile of garbage. None of it made sense. I hated every single character and their lame ass jokes. You hit the nail on the head.

  • The last scene was just ridiculous.

  • I personally loved it

  • They could have done anything with this movie. I thought a predator movie set on a first world war battlefield would have been a good idea. Plus the centenary angle... instead we get this utter garbage. I don't think I've ever seen such an abhorrent disregard for the source material. Or such a disgusting attempt at making a movie full stop.

  • I finally watch Overlord this week which I loved, if you watch the first maybe half hour of it, the atmosphere and dread feeling, not sure what is happening vibe, that setting would of made for an awesome predator movie maybe even in that time period too.

  • The intro alone had me dying 🤣

  • I’m a huge predator and I feel upset that the franchise is destroyed. I’m going to create a comic that is better than the movie.

  • This movie almost made me leave cinema just price of the tickets made me stay.

  • Please let that "Shame!" Fanatic walk behind Mister Black.

  • I rate this movie a 6/10

  • This movie was garbage!

  • it was cheese... but I really liked it.

  • Things that were wrong with the predator movie: too many jokes, bad CGI, predator dogs ?, a giant predator ?, the predator roars were not the same and they were bad, the helmet looked like shit and the predator helmet and gear was randomly delivered the son of the main character. Shane black was in the first movie he should of known alot better to make a good predator movie!

  • I enjoyed it.

  • Are you mad that the vets are talking and acting like how vets act? We make jokes like that all the time. Probably the most relatable guys to hunt a Predator

  • I watched the predter tonight and I actually liked it I thought it was a good story and good acting I think it's worth seeing

  • The original Predator movie had five jokes total

  • I really think they should make a predator movie from the predators point of view. Like what type of culture do they grow up with. Do they get sent out to battle other beings other that just humans and the Xenomorphs? I mean, it seems like they send out 3 at a time as a right of passage, but what happens if they succeed? Obviously if they fail they die. Now this type of movie would need to be taken seriously in order to make it work, but I would go see it. The preview of this newest predator alone was enough for me to not to bother watching it. Humor and a horror series doesn't work imo. The predator movies were better when they built tension and made you conscerned for the characters. When those guys in this movie popped up on screen they gave off such a slap stick vibe I kinda wanted a couple of them to get killed in this movie lol. Thats not a good sign so I opted out.

  • Just saw it, this movie is shiiiiit and I’m a huge predator fan.

  • its exactly like jeepers creepers 3 and latest chucky movie,i mean da fuck happen to story lines now,all previous versions were so cool and amazing,u get nostalgia wen u see it again,80s and 90s story lines were so good in games and movies and tv shows😭😭😭

  • I truly hate MCU humor.

  • Your delivery sucks as much as this f'n movie!

  • The ending basically sums up the whole movie. Predator killer.

  • I would have liked to see the good guy predator work with the humans for a bit, help them evade the big guy. No dialogue, though, no actual lines for the predator, just him gesturing at the soldiers and them trying to figure out what he wants.

  • Never watched a Predator movie so I won't be disappointed

  • when Predator cracked a joke when he gave the thumbs up that seemed it was supposed to have a damn laugh track, I checked out

  • I watched this one a few times over the holidays. I really enjoyed it. I guess I would call it Scifi Horror Comedy 🤔.... Movie Critics on US-tv really hate this one. It sounds like they dislike the Comedy side of it saying they the others films are suspenseful. I get it...the old films are classics.....classics that I've seen a few hundred times now and still love them. But what's wrong with something new? Just enjoy it for what it is and move on. No one wants a remake. Critics seem hate remakes and sequels equally. Never happy. I've also noticed that hating on movies has become a trend on US-tv. Some movies are popular to hate. US-tvrs want views so they are just echoing each other's popular opinions now.

  • I love the first predator. But this "the predator" is shit in a different level. It's much worse.

  • This movie is dogshit...I lost brain cells wasting my time with it.

  • Predator: Mr Black I don't feel good

  • This movie was fucking garbage

  • The worst part of this movie is how unrealistic the train of thought is it was funny and action was cool to see predator do his thing and the hybrid predator was the funniest in the movie BUUUUUTTT it’s so unrealistic first they can’t find the crashes plane cmon man they would have tracked that with heat signature or thermal and had choppers and every fighter Jet drone or military member within 100 miles would be there in 30 minutes guaranteed. Also there is no military anywhere just mercenaries which is so stupid they even say in the movie they know about the visits hundreds of time and yet we still get. No response from the big bad military it’s like they weren’t aloud to use the is military just a goofy black guy hiding a alien body and kidnapping challenged kids and to my final point the evolution they pushed so hard in this movie is pathetic the plot twist oh no it’s the boy they want lmao worst movie I’ve seen in a while and it sucks I liked the predator but this just killed the franchise you can’t make another one now three have bombed in a row only the original is worthy of rewatching so give it up THEY SHOULD HAVE USED THE ALIENS AND THE ENGINEERS AND LINKED THAT WHOLE SERIES THAT WOULD BE BETTER THAN THIS SHIT FEST THIS FELT LIKE THE DIRECTOR RAN OUT OF TIME AND MINEY

  • I just watched the movie I feel I wasted 2 hours of my life that I will never get back and my IQ dropped 5 points every 10 minutes

  • I just watched it and liked it lmao the cgi could’ve been better and I’d rather them use more practical effects but that’s my only complaint

  • Dumbest movie of 2018.

  • 1 and a half hours of dog shit

  • What the fuck were they thinking turning a predator movie into a SNL skit

  • The ending was 100% a reshoot

  • Is no one gonna acknowledge how good that Keanu impression was??

  • 5:43 -> LMFAO!

  • If they made another predator it should be either on space or on mars in the distant future and make it super horror like very scary

  • They just Transformerised the Predator franchise

  • I hated Iron Man 3 and I hated this movie even more. It made me fn angry! I couldn't even watch it in its entirety. Shit casting, shit "jokes", shit one liners, shit story, overall shit. Grease 2 is better. Enough said

  • Guess I’m in the small group of people that enjoyed this movie lol I don’t mind comedy in scary movies. It eases the tension and gets you in a happy place for when the real shit happens and tears you down fast! I loved it.

  • screen rant pitch meeting, 2:55 . anyone?

  • it's a nice jacket Jeremy

  • 1-Predator 2-Predators 3-AVP 4-Predator 2 5-AVP:R 6-The Predator Just my personal order but this last one was garbbo! Did have a few decent scenes but overall horrible story...I laughed more than anything and that’s not necessarily a good thing 😕

  • HOW THE FUCK CAN YOU TURN A PREDATOR MOVIE INTO A COMEDY?THIS IS BLASPHEMY - THIS IS MADNESS!!! Seriously though,wtf Shane Black pls shoot urself and make us a favour

  • I don't understand the bad reviews. Overlooking a couple plot points/plot elements it was a great movie. It even set up a story arc for future iterations.

  • I think (James wan) or (Denis Villeneuve) or (Robert Rodriguez) or even (Quentin Tarantino) should Direct the Next Predator movie! I'm sure either one of these talent's would do it justice...🤷🏽‍♂️

  • Predator goes to the Soviet union should be next

  • This movie is a grade of F-

  • Watch this drunk with suspended disbelief and it's actually fun.

  • The movie was good enough a predator going around killing people that’s all you can ask for Just like a slasher film story and important only the death Scenes matter

  • I saw a low budget scifi movie on Netflix called Spectre that was 10x better than this Predator shit show! Too much humor, characters stupid, plot sucked, and cgi was excessive. The predator is suppose to be mysterious and menacing and nobody in the film seemed afraid of them. Should've made a WWII or Vietnam war predator theme.

  • I honestly believe with the right directing, the right setting, and the right cast, they could recreate the suspense and fear the first movie gave us without bringing in a "big" predator or predator dogs. After watching this movie, it was simply a disgrace....even to AvP Requiem.

  • Comedy of the year...i couldn't have said it better myself.

  • Movie sucked

  • I seriously thought you and Chris stuckman were the same person lol. Just found out by looking for rlm predators review lol.

  • I made that comment before I was done watching the movie. The only way the Predator name can be redeemed is by Steven Spielberg.

  • I’m usually pretty easy and forgiving on movies, giving them a “well it was different” response. This was.......I, I can’t. I just can’t. I mean Thomas Jane, what were you thinking? You seemed very out of place in the first few seconds. I fell asleep on it 3 times within the first few minutes.

  • I really liked this movie

  • What have they done!!! Destroyed the movie

  • Definitely agree with the whole gun thing.

  • Predator vs The Voodoo Rasta's from pt 2.......shouldve been Predator 3

  • I give this movie a strong "WTF WERE THEY THINKING" 🤷🏽🤦🏽

  • Movie was fun as fuck! Fuck your nostalgia nerd.

  • All I can say is that this movie fucks logic in every level that you don't know why shit happens at all

  • Endgame confirmed

  • Fuck i literally smoked a bowl, picked up my phone, and sought this out. You know us so well

  • I watched this on demand and yes it was dam near a comedy. Had some good laughs tho.

  • Don’t watch this movie. Just watched it, DON’T WATCH IT!

  • This movie was perfecttt

  • The Predators???

  • Where the hell wss the scenes we saw stills of , with the two predators in a tank with the heros together?? Was there supposed to be more predators on our side and they cut out that part?

  • Cgi predator cheesed it up!

  • tbh in my opinion I’d hate being a movie critic, basically having to examine a movie so much and just hate it a lot bc of just something, for me I’d just care less it’s just better for me to enjoy a movie then just hate it

  • Heh.. I actually liked it.

  • I loved it.... Guess the humor is right up my alley :-)

  • We are The Predator Borg. We wish to add your genetic distinction to our own. And the Good Guy Predator who is here to help you, will immediately kill you all. Resistance is futile.

  • the most shiti predator movie of all time they destroy this franchises !!!! i really love all predator movies and alien movies including AVP but this is dog shit!!!!!!!

  • Biggest disappointment, worst movie all year, absolute dogshit. Fuck this movie.

  • the movie was awful

  • I know it had a good number of flaws. However I did actually enjoy the movie.

  • I know the movie is a bit silly, but i kinda liked it!

  • I loved and was gushing over the first 20 minutes of this movie like when the normal predator wakes up and starts killing people without HIS weapons and just does like a one handed spray with a gun and stabbing guys with normal knives was cool to me bc I was like we’ve never seen a predator kinda out of its element you know it’s sweet to see it kick ass unprepared then the fucking super predator cane and just ruined it all

  • Very entertaining for a comedy

  • Am I the only person that thought the movie was decent for predator since they did everything else just about. TBH I feel like without the humor i would have fell asleep. I would rather watch a a humor filled predator movie than a suspenseful one NOW because i know what a predator is after all the other movies. I'm not saying the movie bangs but it didnt suck. I would say 4.5/10 not good but not a bad movie. The stuff that brings it down for me is all the cliche parts like the ending could have been let out, and some unnecessarily LONG ad lib moments.

  • I've never seen any predator movie before this one and I thought it was alright, made me laugh, but I already forgot about it. 6/10.

  • Watch it, and i dont know why, because i didn't know why knew it was kinda bad, but i liked it.

  • Best Constantine impression

  • Sooooooooooooooo FUCKING Disappointed 😡😡😡😡🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬😡😡😡😡😡

  • 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.
