The Predator

#1 Post by fraz » Thu Sep 13, 2018 10:45 pm

No Predator sequel has ever really came close to topping the original and Shane Black's new effort follows suit. Coming full circle as an actor (Hawkins) in the original, Black pays homage to the earlier films, plenty easter eggs in here for the fans... Get to the choppa(s)!

The film overall is stiched together weakly but if you can just forget about the words coming out of the actors mouths and continuity issues, then it does an alright job as an all action, with added comedy, kill-fest. With dogs.

This was a lot of fun. Leave your brain at home and sit back to be thoroughly entertained.
