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

  • imma still watch this movie in theatres just for the big screen experience! i never watched a predator movie in the theatres before...im prettty sure there will b aspects of this movie ill enjoy...just as long as it has the predator hunt style scenes in it im all for it!!!

  • I don't care what anyone says this movie is badass !

  • 1. Predator 2. Predators 3. Predator 2 4. Alien vs. Predator 5. The Predator 6. Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem

  • Predators 2010>The Predator. I loved that movie so much.

  • It was really good I liked it

  • knew it was gonna be shit

  • Surprised he didn't give it dog shit. The worst movie ever

  • this movie is pure trash...

  • Saw this movie last week... really looked forward to it and then.... wtf this is terrible. People moan about all the other predator movies, but wait till they see this shit, makes every predator movie look awesome in comparison.. fuck you Shane Black for ruining what could have been an absolutely mega movie.

  • With some A Lister and more likable character and a good predator Vs ultimate predator This movie would be better

  • This film was really boring

  • Both the Predator and Alien Franchise had the exact same problem. They both camd out with a new movie that was great and revived the franchise and gave potential for a series (Prometheus, Predators) but then they fuck it up by throwing the previous script in the trash and introducing a bunch of forgettable characters (The predator, Covenant)

  • Yeah it's defiantly a film that can't be taken seriously, but it's pretty fun to watch for the action and humour in it. Too bad they didn't go for the original script.

  • Don't listen to the negative reviews.This movie was awesome!

  • The second I saw "from the director of ironman 3" I knew this would be terrible.

  • Why didn’t they just finish off where Adrien Brody was left on the Alien planet

  • The Keanu Reeves "That's really not gonna help" sounds so spot on! It's weird actually...

  • IT WAS SOOOOOOOO..... DUMBBBB.... I DIED

  • I liked it

  • Not gonna lie, I enjoyed it, maybe it’s because I went it with really low expectations but I liked the action, story and characters. Sure it’s not the best in the series but I’d still say it’s in the better half. Plus when you compare it to other recent installments from some other eighties franchises like Alien Covenant, Robocop (2014) and Terminator Genesis, I think it’s far better than those. It’s not gonna re-invent the wheel but I wanted a fun, gory action film and that’s what I got 7/10

  • I thought the movie was okay there was a few things i didnt like example the i guess some parts of the comedy i think it was just kinda bad but overall i think its just a 7/10 movie

    • Theodormarlo Hembra Yeah agreed, it’s not perfect but I think it was a perfectly decent action film, felt very 80’s with all the gore and swearing which I appreciated

  • Nice jacket.

  • This is- *drum roll.... Suicide Squad Predator version. 😅

  • best is ofc predator then predator whatever number with pianist guy and then not great but ok AvP 1

  • Is it worth seeing?

    • Anthony Davis Yes, I think people are being too hard on it, sure some of the humor doesn’t land but I thought most did and the action sequences are all pretty good!

  • jeremy doesnt ever have to wear pants in any of his videos. youd never know

  • As I said on Twitter: “Throw the whole movie away” 🚮 I’m still waiting on my check for 2 hours of time wasted + drive time.

  • Chris Hanson VS Predator

  • I've said it before and everyone knows it, Olivia Munn ruins movies. Munn most certainly cost producers millions in opening weekend revenue because she wanted to be a fake crusader. Dude is a registered sex offender. His life is ruined already. And you do this move to gain what exactly? Hollywood will not be calling her again.

  • its a popcorn movie to expect anything more is over reaching

  • They should go to the Predator home world

  • 2nd worse only better than AvP:Requiem

  • Batman: Dead End, Predator, Predator 2, The Predator, Predators, AVP2, AVP1. was there another one?

  • Why are you yelling damn

  • Halloween chick flick

  • The worse Predator movie, I hope that Shane Black not continue like a director predator movie.

  • The hell are you babbling about. I thought I was going to watch a review of The Predator, not watch you babble around.

  • Ending was garbage. Characters are worthless. Story is just stupid. Why would the Predators attack earth if global warming is just going to kill all the human anyway? Predator fights were awesome though.

  • At the end of Hereditary, the audience were laughing and talking. At about 10 minutes in to Tree of Life, the audience were walking out. I don’t trust the audience, these ‘Fast and Furious’ fucks... in the case of The Predator, I’m just as in shock at the response from the audience and the critics. What were you expecting?

  • This was by far the shittiest of all the Predator films. The humour was crap. The plot was a hot mess of dog poop on a rainy day. Seriously, between the autistic boy genius, the leaping invisible commando parents, the escaped midget predator, the A-Team, the predator Scooby Doo and the supercalifragilisticexpialidocious predator, this movie was witless garbage.

  • 1. Predator (87) 2. The Predator 3. AVP 4. Predator 2 5. AVPR (even if this one had the coolest predator of them all)

  • This was the worst movie of 2018 by far that Ive seen. Disappointing.

    • I dont know, I guess I was hoping for it to be good like the first one. I just wasnt into it. Things didnt make sense to me, like when Munn had to get naked to open the door to get away from the Predator. He walks by her and leaves her alone, but then later in the movie, it never addresses that situation again. I had too much expectation for this movie. I have never seen any of the other Predator movies except for the first one. Plus the group of rag tag military guys that joins the main character was strange to me. Loaded on a bus all together and then all of the sudden theyre best friends fighting the Super Predator?? No thanks. This was a B movie for sure, to the likes of Swamp Thing.

    • David Tinker How is it that disappointing though man? Sure some of the humor is out of place/doesn’t land but I liked all the action sequences and plot. Not the best in the series but not the worst either imo

  • The tone didn't fit the franchise but the banter was enjoyable, it honestly felt like they just borrowed the Predator as an antagonist for an action/comedy film. The ending was just stupid tho', they should've had Arnold pop out of the capsule instead of the Power Ranger suit because there is no way this is getting a sequel.

  • Fuck that. I didn't want a comedy. I'm so sick of this trend of making everything like the MCU.

  • The Marvel MCU ruined movies for the next decade. Every franchise out there now is trying to be the next MCU, and it's just not a design that will work for every franchise unfortunately. I honestly would have rather watched a re-tread of Predator/Predator 2 than what I watched. Especially that awful fucking ending :-/

  • Hated it they wrecked the whole movie

  • Wellll!!....lets watch the first movie againnnn!! :/

  • This movie butchered the original series. It was absolutely horrible How does the biologist know everything about their race? SHE KNEW WHAT THEIR TECHNOLOGY WAS AS SOON AS SHE SAW IT OMG IS THIS ALIEN TECHNOLOGY?? SHE KNEW A PREDATOR CAME ACROSS GALAXIES TO COLLECT SPINES FROM CHAMPIONS TO EVOLVE THEIR SPECIES. How does a kid learn their language and know how to work their technology? This kid with aspergers was some superhuman with abilities to just know alien language nah man not even the smartest human can crack that code. The cast has decent acting Olivia Munn was trash she became a marksman and shot herself in the foot with a tranquilizer. FYI she was just a regular biologist, and could run toe to toe with a predator as well WTF. The predator were hardly explained except for oh they evolve! The humans had no fear even if they were military looneys that don’t mean you don’t shit bricks seeing an 11 foot tall monster. You don’t shoot you run realistically. The way they had the deaths were anticlimactic, and the way humanity beat the predator with a freaking exoskeleton is ridiculous. I feel like they cut out so much in the storyline. And the beginning was the only decent thing before they screwed the movie over. DONT FORGOT THE PART WHERE THEY SAY GET TO THE CHOPPERS NOT NOTING THEY WERE JUST RANDOM MOTORCYCLES LIKE HOW TF WERE THEY MAGICALLY JUST THERE WHEN THEY NEEDED TO ESCAPE?? LIKE HOW CAN THIS MOVIE CARRY ON THAT SAME PHRASE ITS GETTING OLD ARNOLD DID IT BEST LEAVE IT BE JESUS Shane Black was behind the writing too and he didn’t even give us a great film. In fact this movie was the worst predator film ever worse than AVP DONT WATCH THIS MOVIE SPOILER ALERT I SAVED YOU MONEY

  • Wow, what an annoying and obnoxious review. Couldn’t get past the first 15 seconds

  • The pu_sy jokes were hilarious. The women in the audience were laughing the loudest.

  • Shane Black what were you thinking???? I was going to buy your NECA Predator figure in your likeness because I loved the original Predator so much, but now I’m not so sure. This movie could’ve been so good. Don’t get me wrong, I really liked the look of the Predator and the effects, but the acting and script and jokes just killed it for me. Plus, I can’t stand Olivia Munn. To me she is just not a legit actress.

  • Blamed Fox! They are ruined everything they do. This is why Disney gotta steps in!

  • This new movie was a steaming pile of turd , bitter disappointment

  • best review ever!

  • Which movie was multiple predators, warring tribe predators? Sounds good.

  • thankswas considering to watch it,but your review made me reconsider to instead catch it on netflix

  • I give it a -1 out of 10

  • Even though its easily the worst in the series, I still had a good time watching it.

  • This was terrible. It was like a parody movie.

  • Don't forget the MCU style ending

  • The first bit where he's in the forest as a sniper and the Predator shows up was actually really cool. The skinned corpse popping out, the first taste of violence in the film, and the iconic human voice mimic the Predator uses. Then the film went downhill, the intro of the unit was, meh, I liked the inappropriate and mindless humour from *most* of the characters. Hated that stupid kid, didn't care for Casey Bracket (Olivia Munn) or the main character, and the end scene was predictable and anticlimactic. But the violence and action kinda payed off, if only if it incorporated more of what makes The Predator *THE* Predator, and maybe if it was a horror movie, Also did anyone notice they used the original music?

  • They used hip-hop music in the trailer. If that didn't sway people from not watching it, dunno what will.

  • Just make predator 3 already ignore all the other movies have Anna working with the C.I.A Arnold in hospital from cancer from the predator self detonation but gives his take on how to fight them and their code of honor and Danny Glover comes in who’s been obsessed with predators since his battle. And they all come together on how a new team should fight them in Somalia or a jungle tribe setting.

  • This movie is going to suck ass.

  • an Action Comedy that we didn't need!

  • My favourite Predator movie is the one where Bill Cosby drugs people.

  • The fact it went from Predator to The Predator is a warning in itself.

  • Id like them to go a more action thriller route but i liked it regardless . the jokes were okay all based in cynicism .2 thumbs up .

  • So Jeremy Jahns does Pitch Meeting too, two.0, Tosh?

  • Shane Black should be blacklisted from Hollywood for hiring a known Child molester.

  • It felt like AVP3 minus the aliens.

  • The movie sucked almost as much as your shit reviews

  • 1: Predator 2: AvP 3: Predators 4: AvP:R 5: Predator 2 6: The Predator 2018: trash pile

  • It was an entertaining movie but it wasnt a good predator movie. I'm recommending it to people with caveats.

  • 1000 dislikes ? Dude yea get a real job you suck at this one go back to selling crack.

  • Dude are you on crack? Because you sure as fuck arent funny.

  • this review sucks pig balls!

  • Fan film Dark Ages was a lot better than this crap. 👍

  • If you like the first three Predator films, than you will hate this movie. Reminds me of Alien vs Predator part 2.

  • I liked it but it did seem like some key scenes were edited out of it.

  • It really was a good time drunk

  • Everybody just go see this movie. It’s NOT a waste of money. It’s worth making your own opinion.

  • Hey fuck everybody. This movie was dope. When something makes me laugh like that, I’m not gonna bash it. THEE scene with Key and OG Punisher was so fucking hilarious I DIED in the theater. All I’ll say. Everybody who saw it will know what I’m talking about.

  • I thought it was a Good movie...better than justice league..js

  • For most of this video i thought it was a shirt, but it's a jacket... is it a jacket that looks like a shirt, or a shirt that wants to be a jacket?

  • Constantine is a movie that haunted me a little. Back in the days

  • AvP is fucken amazing, its not the franchises fault for lackluster directors and hollywoods short sightedness. the Alien-Predator-Engineer Franchise needs to be expanded and made more massive much like the MCU or Starwars universes are/were. The Games, comics, and the novels of the alien-predator universe are top notch to anyone whose a real fan of the stuff. Rebellion had made 2 very good AvP games already. Concrete Jungle aswell was amazing, the story wow.

  • There isn't a Predator in space movie.

  • This movie is great and I still wouldn't take it serious whether a predator is hunting me down, of anything it will get me excited and I'll crack a lot of jokes in the process😂

  • Have you been in the trending list lately.

  • This movie was MUCH BETTER than the Avp and covenant series......while it was no masterpiece...they GOT the comedy and violence right.....I'll take that any day....we got off Easy on this film....coulda been waaaayyyy worse, period.

    • Mike Fu Completely agree, far better that what the Alien series is doing atm, I really enjoyed it!

  • Well, at least it wasn't Alien Covenant bad. I enjoyed it, but the final act screwed the movie up. Until then, the characters were having nice chemistry and such, but then all of a sudden the huge Pred showed and then the movie didn't know what to do action-wise. The comedy and the script was OK, but the action was nearly awful, especially the ending. The only true solution for movies like Predator, is to make them less. You don't need big flashy action scenes or give motives for the hunt, just some simple, good ones with actual supsense. Also, Black might be a good screenwriter, but he is nowhere near McTiernan's directorial ability.

  • Goddamn! You shriek all the time... I am right here, dude... Had to stop watching this one... Goodness! You do ramble on... Shouting actually...

  • Jeremy just described the ninja genre pre- and post-Naruto.

  • People are acting like the humor killed it. What about the awkward dialogue? Choppy story telling? Horribly outdated character building and personalities? The Unlikable main cast? The huge lack of actual Predator content? Shitty editing and frame by frame slow motion in 2018? Holy fuck. This movie was unwatchable.

  • I gotta say the ultimate predator is Harvey Weinstein

  • This new Predator failed because it lacked: 1) A rendition of Long Tall Sally. 2) A believable actress as the doctor. 3) A goddamn minigun

  • It was just to much of everything for me which stole the mystery and the humor was just monotonous. I mean, every 2nd word was f this f that with pussy jokes which led me to believe that this was directed at under 18 year old teenagers.. The humor got old very quickly with to many one liners and the characters were mainly vulgar 100% of the time which just didn't work at all.. The film wasn't dreadful but it wasn't great neither.. It's a very noisy film with nonstop talking dialog and explosions which doesn't stop till the end so one might expect to leave the movies with headache.. The ending was very weak but I won't spoil it for you all.

  • AvP is a masterpiece compare to this

  • This was just a horrible movie, 1st half was descent
