Predator looks tame in Jurassic Park-like film; downright disgraceful

October 5, 2018

There are some funny scenes, good action sequences and This Is Us star, Sterling K. Brown, turns in a strong performance.

 

But despite all that, this version of the Predator series is a downright disgrace

 

I suspected that it would miss the mark in certain areas, but this movie missed the entire target. 

 

For some reason, they removed the raw edge for which the franchise is known and replaced it with a softer, action-adventure vibe, similar to Jurassic Park

 

Predators actually had a decent premise, with enough substance to make this film worthy of the legacy, but there wasn't a logical sequence to the events and this is faulted to lazy story writing.

A storyline is only as good as its execution, as it tries to make the audience believe that a certain chain of events could actually happen in the fantasy world that they are viewing on the big screen. 

 

Frequently, I was utterly annoyed, due to the lack of story development and with some of the uninspired direction. 

 

I figured that, after all of the mistakes they made with Predators, this one would be a strong comeback, but it's really not fit for the big screen. 

 

Highly, disappointing.  That's the review.

 

 

 

Plot Summary

 

From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home. The universe's most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species.

 

When a boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and an evolutionary biologist can prevent the end of the human race.
