The more I see of this movie, the more I think they really missed the boat by not having Bruce Campbell star. It looks like that kind of movie.

I mean I want to see more of this predator world than just hunters, but they never show anything more it seems.
Dude, why overthink it? Predators aren't real.

I know they aren't real, but it becomes repetitive when they are all the same character it seems. It's not that I feel I am overthinking it, it's that the writers have lacked creativity, when it comes to expanding the universe, and it's still too much the same after all this time.

I feel like we are all being punk’d here. This can’t be real.


The next Alien movie will have xenomorphs sitting around the poker table complaining about life in the factory and how queeny is too demanding and would those little face huggers just grow up already. Geesh!

a movie is a movie. they stand alone. fans who like to create universes will hold it to the candle that is the original (Godfather, Godfather II, etc., etc., etc.). i say each one is a chance to do one of three things, if you still feel the need to compare: it's worse, it's the same, or it's better. so a one in three chance. better odds than slot machines in vegas! oh, and this movie has yet to grace a silver screen. so the jury is still out.

Huge codpiece on the predator. When sexual organs are emphasized, the movie almost always is trash put together by 12 year old minds.

Prediction: Trash

Remember the big block letters that proclaim "FROM DIRECTOR SHANE BLACK."

That says it all right there. No James Wan is he!

Watched it last night......

There is also a climate change angle inserted. Clearly an Albatross.

The plot was disjointed and incoherent at times. And you're prediction is/was on target : The movie is absolute trash.
