Unrealistic but happy
- May 13, 2009
Watched this last night. I agree with you 100% but it was precisely what I was looking- a nice little action flick on a Friday night after a brutal work week before I start another season of some other show.
I had already seen this actress pull off action and fighting sequences in Legion so I was down for this whole thing.
I think I also benefitted from never having seen any of the other movies in the "series" (my friends and I just watched the original with Arnie 100 times back in the day). I'm glad I don't know about any of the crap they piled into what is the simplest of premises and the only two movies with a predator alien I watched were literally the same exact plot and rhythm.
Being a nerd, I like Predator in this one too...I highly recommend you see Predator 2, if you're picking only one of the sequels. The movie does its own thing, and Danny Glover (Roger Murtaugh from Lethal Weapon) as a great leading role. P2 actually builds off the first movie well, and you can't go wrong with Gary Busey being his mad, obsessed, self. Predators is great as well. After that, ignore the rest.
