Movie Info

Los Angeles is enduring a heat wave and a crime wave, so the pressure on police officer Michael Harrigan (Danny Glover) to solve a strange string of murders is mounting. Harrigan thinks the culprit can be found among the warring gangs and drug cartels, but FBI Special Agent Peter Keyes (Gary Busey) knows the horrible truth: Their killer is a fearsome extraterrestrial (Kevin Peter Hall) with keen hunting abilities that include superior night vision and the power to make itself invisible.

    Whilst some of the stylistic features seem to offer promising new directions for the Predator milieu, (such as Jamaican drug lords taking L.A. to seige, and Predator's updated arsenal) there's nothing in the execution that delivers the testosterone fuelled sense of mayhem and pleasure of the original. And let's face it, Predator was never a brilliant idea in the first place, and this movie, unlike the original, makes that abundantly clear.

    Completely unnecessary sequel with some blaxploitation and banal cop genre.

    When I was younger I always hated Predator 2. Rewatching it as an adult, I don't think it was fair how bad I thought it was. It's not that Predator 2 is crap, it's just that it's *so much worse* than the original (one of the 5 best movies ever made), that it comes across as such a massive disappointment. With fresh, or I guess more accurately, with more experienced eyes, I don't mind Predator 2 at all, there's actually a lot of stuff I like about it. It's still not a great movie to me, but I don't skip it when I'm doing a marathon like I would have once upon a time. It expands upon the Predator lore in some pretty cool ways, and the Jamaican Voodoo Posse inspired my Escher Necromunda gang, so I've wound up pretty 50/50 on the whole thing.

    There is a cult following growing for this film but on watching this after the first you can't help the distaste. The best thing I can say about this film is that it adds so much more to the mythology we know about The Predators. The biggest issue the film has is the storyline, trading the soldiers for police was going to be a tough task. The film is much more in line with the Die Hard and Lethal Weapon tone, something that looks nice, just doesn't mean too much. Glover is no Arnold, but that isn't a bad thing, I think he is serviceable for this film. I just don't understand why The Predator was targeting the police when he was clearly out for the criminals. The film just lost me with too many plot holes and weak characters. I like the film for the guilty pleasure but in the end it was a weak sequel that has its fans. 17/09/2018.
