From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black's explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, 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 young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
Action Adventure Sci-Fi - This sequel to the long-running science fiction action series is not
a reboot but a loose continuation featuring no returning actors nor
characters. Boyd Holbrook is the lead though a number of other
familiar actors such as Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Trevante
Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, and Thomas Jane have substantial roles in
the ensemble. Constant language and bloody violence make the film
not for kids.
PROFANITY: Well over 30 F-words; 26 S-words, 7 GD's; many others. SEX/NUDITY: Brief glimpses of nude paintings. VIOLENCE: Very bloody shootings, beatings, stabbings, slashings, killings. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol and tobacco. ACTION: Fights, shootouts, chases, crashes, explosions. COMEDY: Silly banter and wisecracks, sometimes crude and suggestive.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average To its credit, The Predator tries to do something a little different than the previous sequels, both of which copied (to one degree or another) the beats of the original. The core problem remains, however. The Predator may look cool and do creatively bloody things to its prey but it was never all that interesting.
Roger EbertFull Review Good With a fantastic cast and razor-sharp pacing, the fact is that this is what you want from a movie called "The Predator.” ...a fun, brutal, fighting machine that wastes no time getting down to business... But "The Predator" loses steam by the time it gets to its climax. Some of the final scenes are messy in terms of editing...
USA TodayFull Review Average Full of rampant goofiness, extreme gore, a jumbled narrative and hyperactive pacing, "The Predator" is also funnier and more clever than you would expect, though at the same time it's an '80s film that doesn't realize it's 2018 in terms of political correctness.
NY PostFull Review Very Poor ...repugnant humor. Racially offensive quips, flagrant sexism and Tourette syndrome gags all contribute to this witless, scare-free junk. This isn't bottom-of-the-barrel material, it's bottom of the landfill. But worse is a plot line involving autism and a dubious scientific theory that will leave parents fuming.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 46 moviegoers:
Great Reviews! Both males and females really enjoyed "The Predator."Professional movie critics didn't give it very good reviews but moviegoers certainly did. Only a relatively small percentage of the adults felt it was only a "good/average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). If this looks like a movie you might enjoy, I would recommend seeing it since most enjoyed it very much and no one disliked it.
