Film Review: The Predator (2018)


The first Predator movie was awesome nonsense. Much like Commando, Arnie was a tour-de-force of muscle and great one-liners. The movie never took itself too seriously, but it delivered a great cinema experience.

The sequels were successively poor, besmirching the brand and squandering what could have been a very strong series.

So, this time around would things be different, would the team pull a phoenix from the ashes of films gone past?


Confused, muddled, poorly cast and poorly written. The one saving grace was the Predators themselves: they showed more of their personalities, more of their backstory in this movie, and that was great. The rest though, was cheaply done.

I give this movie 4.0/10.
