Another sequel of the famous classic fictional extraterrestrials, The Predator adds a mix of comedy and action but also brings in questions on whether it is necessary to continue its legacy with movies.
The story is nothing new. The predators came to the Earth once again for an important purpose and one of the elite soldiers witnesses its arrival. The Predator consists of a more charismatic cast, with 'the team' going against the predator funnier and more entertaining to the audience. However, that does not cover the fact that the movie has too many unnecessary scenes, which seriously drags the pace. A lot of choices made in the movie are beyond silly, leading to the lack of coherence as the movie goes, feeling bits and pieces everywhere. For audience who are expecting an intense brutal fight and kill, this movie fails to meet it.
It is disappointing to see a lack of action with the predators. Yes you heard correctly. It did not fully present the brutality and cruelty like the first movie does. Despite some brief references to the original, it did not offer anything new. The fight between two predators is also overhyped, feels like it has not reached its full extent when it can be an interesting battle.
Overall it is not a bad addition for fans to once again see the predators on the big screen but do not expect too much from it. #tallmoviegeek #movies #films #movie #review #hk #hongkong #predator #2018 #kill #brutal #hunt #humans #alien #fighters #earth #life #resources #armour #fight #soldier
