Things are left open for a sequel, but it's hard to get over the fact that there was a better movie in here somewhere. One that was eviscerated like one of the creature's many victims.

I left the theatre really and truly disappointed in THE PREDATOR. It ended up a bit of a shambling Frankenstein. Trying to serve too many masters, perhaps, and falling short of satisfying any of them.

Like the super predator, what we're left with is an 11-foot hybrid monster that probably shouldn't have attempted this evolution.

There are a few entertaining and amusing moments to be had with this film, but overall it's a messy and overlong attempt at recapturing what made the franchise fun in the first place.

Is this a good movie? No. Is it silly? Yes. Exaggerated? Definitely. But is it fun? Oh yeah. [Full Review in Spanish]

Everybody's favourite multi-jawed dreadlocked alien monster is back for a fun, throwaway action splurge. With a large dollop of humour, the film plays like the latest sequel in the Predator series rather than as any attempt to makeover the formula.

The fourth film in the Predator franchise is also the fourth best Predator movie.

Even when The Predator isn't going out of its way to be unbelievably insensitive to seemingly anyone with a physical or intellectual disability, it is mind-numbingly stupid to the point of being incoherent. Shane Black might not be built for 2018.

Black blows up the action movie stereotypes of yore with a Cheshire Cat grin.

Offensive in almost every way, it's the Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk of Predator movies.
Full Review | Original Score: F-
October 31, 2018
A goretastic, surprisingly funny sequel that plumps for easy CGI thrills and disappointing disability tropes all too often.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 30, 2018
Has all the hallmarks of an ambitious, stuffed-to-the-gills "big idea" reboot that spooked the studio and got chopped down to a 95 minute bare-bones September dump.

I really wanted to love The Predator, and I'm extremely relieved that I do. It's also clear that this final product is muddled and imperfect and probably a little generationally tone deaf.

While The Predator tries to lean on nostalgic reverence for that first movie, it also can't find a tonal mix that works.
Full Review | Original Score: D

The Predator is quite fun if you can appreciate the silliness since it doesn't take itself seriously, but unfortunately, the lack of seriousness is also its own detriment.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

It's a film that features some of Black's trademark wit but it's far too inconsistent for anyone who isn't a die-hard fan of either Shane Black or the Predator films.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

You don't have to have a plot to have a good movie. But you do need decent editing, lighting, shot composition, and directorial vision. Shane Black's The Predator has none of the above.

The Predator does everything it can to effectively kill off further interest in the franchise.
October 26, 2018
We've known this franchise bleeds since the first Alien v. Predator, but Black has proven that we can kill it.
October 25, 2018
As fun as it is to revisit one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's better films, this update never quite clicks despite trying to rebottle the vibe from the original.
