The Predator follows a young boy who accidentally summons more aliens to earth. It’s up to his father to right them off. 


Thing is, The Predator tries so hard to be something great, but it ends up being an elaborate mess that shouldn’t have existed in the first place. 

It’s funny that the deadly predators return, and, this time, it’s up to a bunch of PTSD-afflicted soldiers to save the day. The combination of characters is supposed to be hilarious, but they end up being a bunch of men sharing offensive, dry jokes. 

I don’t have much to say about this movie, other than it sucks hard!

Honestly, The Predator is so silly it shouldn’t even exist. If it isn’t Sterling K. Brown’s constant smoldering that sets you off, it’ll be the one-dimensioned protagonist in Holbrook’s Agent McKenna, or the confusing twist that’s the Predator’s motivation that does the job. Whichever it is, you leave this movie feeling bad cause you know you’re never getting that wasted time of your life back.
