I loved the first PREDATOR movie. But we're two trailers in to this movie now, and I'm still not feeling it. Meh.

The first Predator is the only one worth its salt. Everything else is "goin' through the motions."

I tried watching the second one. I don't think I made it twenty minutes before giving up. It was action movie cliché after action movie cliché. So bad that it almost came across as parody.

At times, Predator 2 is a downright comedy. The opening is hilarious. A bunch of scofflaws holed up in the upper floors of an office building, where they've stashed an arsenal big enough to keep the Duke's goons in EFNY stocked up.

They are basically the super secret 'Blue team' that is said to respond and deal with anything extraterrestrial.

I'm not really that interested. I really like the first Predator movie but the problem is, is that in the sequels, are the predators are essentially the same character, even though these are new ones, cause the old ones keep dying.

I mean are all predators hunters? Where the ones that stay home and take care of home and things like that? Where are the ones that have business/administration jobs, to make money so the hunters have a play to buy all of their advanced equipment from.

I mean I want to see more of this predator world than just hunters, but they never show anything more it seems.

Plot twist: Olivia turns out to be a Predator disguised as a human. She will have her mask pulled off scooby doo style.

She would have gotten away with it if not for you pesky humans!!
