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

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

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

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.
