Predator 2 (1990) Review:

Taking the settings from the jungle to the city streets was definitely a risky move for action-horror Predator, but the writers pulled it off nicely. Predator 2 really notched up the special effects and body count, thanks to the freedom allowed by a massive budget. But even with the huge amount of dollars spent towards Predator 2, it didn’t really translate into a great action-horror film like the original.

Danny Glover was an interesting pick in the lead role, as the human combatant to the predator. Other players included stars Bill Paxton, Gary Busey, Adam Baldwin and Morton Downey Jr, each mixing together as rude co-characters defusing Glover’s progress to catch the predator.

The story is pretty ridiculous, violent in nature (therefore entertaining), but with a senseless plot. There are some major pacing issues and the movie does get slow at times, forming some. Having a spaceship as the final fighting platform was a cool touch, but the ending could have had a better fight scenes.


If you like the original Predator than the sequel is definitely worth your time. Otherwise, skip it.
