I hear a lot of people generally shit on this movie and while im not blind to it's flaws, it's nowhere near the shitfest peole make it out to be.

Yes, it's not as good as the first movie.

Yes it is full of racial stereotypes (which as a colombian I always found the opening action scene to be hilarious in it's ott colombian portrayals)

It probably shouldn't have been set in the "future" (of 1997) because it still looks like the early ninties and only serves to date the film.

Otherwise I thought it was a different, highly entertaining Predator flick which actually helped to add to the mythology. Plus it made Danny Glover even more of a bad ass than he already was.

Thoughts?

I still haven't seen the second one yet, so I'll have to check it out. Is it better than Alien vs Predator?

u know ive always meant to check this out but never came around to.. ive heard good things about it thru the years but the main reason why it gets slammed is because of arnold's absense...

Which has always been the most retarded reason for criticising this film, besides, Danny Glover's character was awesome. I liked the fact that he wasn't some elite soldier like Arnold but rather just a veteran cop. When he was going up against the Predator he always got through his encounters by the skin of his teeth which served as a nice contrast to Arnolds elite soldier skills.

right they took a complete different route with the sequel and many of the original's fans werent ready for it let alone casual movie goers. you made me wanna this now, on my initial list of movies to watch this wknd. lol

Not to sound like a douche but im amazed that some people here still haven't seen this flick, I only say that because Predator 2 has always been one of those movies that's nearly always being shown on tv, whether it's here in the uk or when im in colombia or the US visiting fam, im always catching it on tv, in fact i've probably seen this movie just as much in spanish as I have in english lol

ive wonder this myself

i enjoy the film for what it is, people just held expectations and it didnt meet them but thats how it goes.

i personally think it fits well within the Predator storyline and gives a little bit of background info

and as noted, raises the level of bad assery of Danny Glover
