To be honest, this film was a nice surprise. After seeing all the negative ratings, comments and whatnot, I decided to watch Predator 2 to see if it really was that bad (anyway, this was not long after I saw the awesome Predator-the Arnie one- so I was in a predator-y mood).
My verdict? It wasn't.
Predator 2 did something new, and still did a decent job (even with a completely different cast, a constant weak point for sequels, or at least most of the time). Sure it wasn't THAT good (hence my 60% rating), but it's much better than most of the stuff out there! It doesn't muck up the first film's idea (i.e. if they were to say at the end that the Predator was just a hallucination), continuity was fine and it's not as if they're terrible actors either.
I'm not saying that you'll be that pleased, but this film is definitely not as bad as many say it is!
I'm yet to see AVP or Predators, but I heard AVP was pure crap (but who trust critics, eh?) and from the look of it Predators is just Predator with a few things added on (but good nonetheless). Anyone seen these films?
