Critic Reviews for Predator 2

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (18) | DVD (28)

Overall it's a timid and inferior follow-up to the more exciting predecessor, but it does strive for new ideas...

Cinema Crazed

Rarely does a sequel outdo its predecessor in every way. Predator 2 is one of that rare breed.

Full Review… | July 6, 2010

Undeniably bad, but sort of a nice try. [Blu-ray]

Groucho Reviews

A gritty, entertaining, and action-packed follow up

May 6, 2005
Film Threat

Half as taut and twice as dumb.

Lessons of Darkness

...bullets fly, sharp pointy objects are hurled, body parts sail in all directions, and Glover blunders from one ridiculous situation to another. (Special Edition)

completely forgettable

September 19, 2004
Shadows on the Wall

The filmmakers have tortured the audience with their banal ramblings and pointlessness.

Apollo Guide

Entertaining and full of violence. Not even close to as good as the first, but well worth watching.

Juicy Cerebellum

Better than the first.

March 26, 2003
San Francisco Examiner

Gets a bad rap, but actually a pretty good sci-fi sequel.

December 13, 2002
New Times

One of those sequels that not only is bad on its own, but makes you think twice about enjoying the original.

November 21, 2002
Capital Times (Madison, WI)

The perfect example of how to bury a franchise quickly and efficiently.

November 5, 2002

Typical sequel, not as good as the original.

Audience Reviews for Predator 2


The core conceit of the Predator franchise (the hunted victims are prepared for a fight, different than most horror films, right?: " ... didn't expect that monster was actually trying to KILL us", hence upping the anxiety quotient) is discarded for the following feature, successfully ruining the supposed gist of the proceedings and reducing this to a simple us-against-them typical monster piece despite the top heavy cast.

Its a shame that 'Predator 2' doesn't meet to the same standards as Schwarzenegger's action filled gore fest. Having Jamacian gangsters didn't help either, with stereotypes or story. The only highlight is having 'Lethal Weapon's Danny Glover and Bill Paxton (Aliens). Overall, what this film did wrong was creating the spin off universe of 'Aliens Vs Predator'.

Not as good as the original but the urban location, original casting of some great character actors, new look predator, new weaponry and amazing take your breath away action with an excellent ending leaves you wanting more hunting action.
Top notch visuals and effects with some lovely over the top cliched characters all add up to a film just out of the 80's but clearly living the dream hehe. Plus you've got 'Private Hudson' incarnated again (he's also come back as a vampire in 'Near Dark') to take on predators ;)

A rip roaring violent, bloody and foul mouthed masterpiece that is criminally underrated.

What i like about this movie is that i can nap inbetween scenes and still know exactly what is going on! I love the way bill paxton is back in this other movie when first seeing him in Aliens.
Its not the great of a sequel again like the alien franchise that if you've seen the first one then you've practically seen this one, not really worth the effect of watching!

Danny Archuletta:
A pro would have split the moment the action started. More than one we would have seen them. Whoever did this waited until the last second, took out six guys armed with machine guns by hand, then got by us. Maybe we should give him a job. Put him on the payroll.
