The Predator (2018)




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. This movie is directed by Shane Black under 20th Century Fox.

CAST: Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Sterling Brown, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey & Yvonne Strahovski.

GENRE: Science-Fiction, Action, Adventure


The Predator offers a decent popcorn entertainment with a brand of violence you would expect from the Predator franchise. Overall, it is an enjoyable flick with good action sequences and decent amount of thrills. What I like about Predator is its comedic timing of some interesting characters in most scenes which actually worked in providing enough spice to the movie in general. Production-design and Musical Scoring is good. Visually, the gore and bloody scenes were executed well. For me, you may or may not watch The Predator in cinemas.


The Predator Franchise is a bit exhausting already and it is just right to put into rest. The story is dragging so much unnecessary subplots and developments. It maybe a little enjoyable but the 2018 Predator movie lacks enough back story to please first-time viewers of the franchise. It is neither appealing nor engaging since it lacks enough action-packed Predator VS Man & Man VS Predator formula that could have been staged and executed in large amounts.
