A few days ago I went to the cinema and watched a movie named "The Predator". Most people say this one is a bullshit, but I am here to say something good about this film. So, where do we start?
If you want a Triller/almost Horror with suspense and hebbie-jeebbies and cold sweat running down your forehead, then forget it! Go watch the one and only original Predator and also Alien. This one is half-sci-fi action with elements of comedy. Really. They don't say that, but I'll tell you a secret: it's a dark comedy
. Especially, moment with "thumb up". I won't describe it here. Really. You may watch the movie after all. The movie has its flaws, but all in all if you just want to enjoy some sci-fi action turned comedy, you've come to watch the right one. This time, movie is divided into 5 parts: Predator vs Humans, Predator vs stupid Humans ("guys, really, I just want my spacecraft controller back!"), Predator vs HUGE Predator, Humans vs Humans, Humans vs HUGE Predator.The smaller Predator really wants his controller back, but...
I really felt sorry, for smaller Predator guy. He wants to bring technologies to humans to help them fight against other Predators, risks his life and what he gets? First, he gets robbed by main protagonist and knocked out with hist own weapon, then he comes to senses at some kind of lab (what would you feel if you were in his shoes?), then another Predator arrives to kill him, then those supid humans don't want to give controller (even if they don't know what to do with it) and don't even want to talk, then he gets killed by big guy Predator. That's what you get for helping humans, man!"You want to know, if someone f***ed an alien!"
Yeah, a quote from the movie. After this one, I hoped things will get even funnier, but it turned out that the Predator was injected with human DNA. And I had veeeery high expectations for that moment. Don't look at me like that!
Now, a few mentions about movie logic. Untypical for an action/thriler, but typical for comedy.
The Predator catches your friend, doesn't harm him and asks to lower your weapons and acts more or less friendly, even though he has already enough reasons just to kill all stupid humans in this stupid town. What do you do? SHOOT AT HIM! L is for Logic.
Big guy Predator appears and wants to take smaller one down. The smaller Predator hasn't killed the main hero or someone from his current party even after that skirmish. You have a weapons. What do you do? RUN! Leave these Predators and RUN! Seriously? So the bigger guy comes after you next? Why don't you help the smaller guy? He didn't seem so bad... Btw, that's what you get for helping humans again! They will just leave you and run away! They are some ugly... (you know the rest of the phrase).
I won't say more. Enough about logic and stupidity. Let's get to the end of movie.
The smaller Predator brought humans some technology to fight against Predators who want to move to the Earth. Tille the very last moment I haped that Arnold Schwarzenegger will come out from that cryogenic pod... But alas... Though Arnold was supposed to be cameo in that movie, but refused due to minority of his role... Maybe, he WAS supposed to be in that pod, but after refusal, they had to make something up quickly? We'll never know...
So, all in all, I enjoyed this one as a funny movie. Despite being absolutely different (can't say that in a good way) from the origrnal Predator, this one isn't as bad as everyone says. Just don't take this one too seriously. And if you want some real action take a fake scull with attached backbone, cover it in tomato juice and ask a person near you to pass it along during a very intense moment. If you hear the screem somewhere in the cinema room, then it worked.
Or you can buy a predator mask and blades, make dreadlocks, put them on during the movie, stand up during very intense moment, turn around and jump at the row behind you.
Also, I guess, you've already figured out who's my fav character
What do you think about The Predator and all other Predator movies? Let me know!
Bye now! Have a nice day!
