3 July 2006 | nerpaakula
| Extremely underrated.
WTF is wrong with people? Predator-1 had more Arnie than Predator. This movie simply has more Predator. It also greatly expanded the Predator universe and franchise. It introduced a whole new bunch of Pred weapons, tactics and behavior which never ever seemed out of place and were perfect fits. It explored their race further. All these were added to full effect in the AvP and AvP-2 PC games which were smash hits so imagine how horrible it would be if this movie never happened? The urban (steel jungle?) setting contrasts against the previous jungle setting and is a major plus for this movie. This movie was also extremely realistic and gory. All in all, this movie is fantastic and a few ignorant critics just want to bring it down by comparing it with the uniqueness of the original.

Did You Know?


Greyback's Plasmacaster is unique in that the laser pointer is built into the weapon itself, rather than mounted on the Predator's Bio-Mask.


Reporter: As drought-ridden Los Angeles swelters in agonizing heat, drug lords wage bloody warfare in the streets. Yet another open conflict... Oh, fuck this, get me out of here!


After the subway incident the EMT examining Leona is listening to her chest. He says "I can hear fetal heart tones. This woman is pregnant." Never mind the significant level of background noise, there is no way that he would hear any fetal heart sounds with a conventional stethoscope while listening to the chest.

Crazy Credits

When the Elder Predator throws Harrigan the flintlock pistol he says "Take it". Harrigan reads the inscription "1715" ... the subtitles on the DVD regard the Predator as 'mumbles incoherently' but the Predator, being from a society based on trophies and the hunt, just witnessed Harrigan make a kill and not take a trophy. He is calling Harrigan a "heathen"

Alternate Versions

VCD (Video CD) by Video Van is 103 minutes long and is heavily censored:

  • Some violence is intact while other parts are edited
  • Most of the profanity is left in the film
  • Danny Glover has unmasked the alien to curse at it,
  • the scene cuts to Predator throwing Danny Glover across the room.
