Critic Review - Associated Press

There isn't anything as comically grisly as the exploding head or Carl Weathers' arm removal, both well-remembered moments from the original Predator.

Ok so you want moments exactly like the first??? How original. There have been so many movies with similar aspects that you are looking for since 1987. This movie was pretty close to 1980 with a little 2010. It was a great break from the BS movies and over the top action that try too hard. It was a great SEQUEL to the original. Watch them together and they probably show up seemless. Great movie but nothing new.

Are you serious? I think the "help me" scene was pretty memorable, although I don't want to give away any spoilers. I caught myself laughing at the jokes, and I liked the integration of the music, as it reminded me of the first film. But to give this movie a bad rating just because it didn't emulate its predecessor is just down right idiotic.

Did you SEE the original? Then you would have seen Bill Duke's head explode from a Predator weapon when he ducked his head under a log.

remember? His brains hit the lens...then is cuts to the Predator target emitter shutting off, and him walking away still cloaked.

To be honest, I don't that quite classifies as an 'exploding head.' If you're interested in seeing an exploding head- see the movie Scanners. Also, this review is absurdly awful & I've yet to reading anything as comically horrendous.

that's not what happened, because afterwards dillon looks at him and macs head is INTACT.

I WIN, YOU ALL LOOOOSE, especially the IDIOT reviewer.

His head has a giant hole in it. The fact that you are even arguing otherwise makes you a complte idiot.

Yeah I saw the original a bunch of times which proves it had to be great and I don't recall Carl Weathers' head exploding. I'm about to shell out $7.50 to see this new one but I guess this reviewer is saying I should pocket that money because this movie is bad?

That's because it wasn't Carl Weathers head that exploded, it was Bill Duke who was blasted. Did you even read the comments you plebe?

The review seemed very balanced. The fact that some of the commenters here are calling the reviewer names gives the impression that they just saw the rotten tomato but didn't think it necessary to read the review.
