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. <more>
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.
I just watched this movie again tonight for the first time in a long time, and I have to say that this movie is GREAT!!! I know I'm going to get hurt for saying this, but I actually think I like Predator 2 just as much, if not more than the original Predator. I'm not sure, but I kind of think that I saw Predator 2 first, which may be the reason, but I think the true reasons are the following:I loved that the Predator has more weapons, and the action sequences were more interesting.In this film they do a much better job developing and explaining the Predator. This isn't just a <more>
crazy beast that kills things left and right. This is an intelligent being that is looking for a good hunt. I love that the Predator doesn't attack anyone that he doesn't consider a threat or isn't a challenge. I LOVE that he has compassion and respect for an expectant mother.I have to say there are only 2 or 3 little things that I didn't like about the movie, but they aren't anything I can't deal with. I wasn't too fond of the Predator being struck by lightning...sure, it looks cool, but don't you think that would hurt him pretty bad?All in all, I genuinely LOVED this movie! I don't know what is is about this movie that just doesn't sit well with a lot of the reviewers on this site, but I loved it. I REALLY hope that they go ahead with a 3rd installment, but it won't be the same without Kevin Peter Hall R.I.P. . Thanks for reading.-Cortex
I've always loved this movie ever since I saw it way back in 1990 at the theater. Predator is great, but part 2 is equally great. It may not be quite as primal and fast paced, but it more than makes up for it with well developed characters, a more detailed back story and compelling setting, and a deeply developed story. If the predator wasn't in this movie, the story set up would make for a great movie on its own.You may not realize it when you're watching it, but the climax of this movie is nearly 45 minutes long! Starting from the subway shoot out, the tunnel chase, the <more>
street-roof chase, the slaughter house fight, the roof top fight that spills into the apartment building across the street, the elevator shaft, and finally to the Predator ship itself. It is a breathless series of action sequences strung together so well that it's almost astonishing to look back on it and imagine such effort was crafted to make this movie.This movie would never be made today. A sequel without the main character from the fist movie? A whole new setting? This would be seen as too great a risk, but in 1990 movie studios were still run by creative people, not accountants. This movie is a true, unsung classic of sci-fi, coming from an age when great care was put into genre movies that had strong stories, good characters, and dialogue that didn't sound silly and forced. Lines weren't meant to become one-liners, they were just so memorable that they ended up that way."You can't see the eyes of the demon, until him come calling." "Okay P-ssy face, it's your move." "Danny Boy."And of course..."Want some candy?"Granted, those aren't as good as the classics from the first Predator, like:"You son of a bitch!" "I ain't got time to bleed." "Knock Knock." "Stick around." "If it bleeds, we can kill it." "You are one ugly mother f---er."and of course..."AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"Last but not least, the music score from Predator 2 is one of the best ever. Alan Silvestri hasn't topped his work from this movie which has to have one of the most complex, layered, and just flat out astounding main themes ever composed for an action movie, or any movie.And of course, it had the cameo that sparked the whole Alien vs Predator phenomenon. If it weren't for Predator 2, god knows where we'd be.
A worthy follow up that outdoes the original (by ExpendableMan)
There are purists out there who would have you believe that the first Predator movie is the better one. Not so. Predator 2 is by far and away the superior example. Relentlessly bleak and gloriously violent, it is a far, far darker story than its 1987 forebear. Furthermore, it adds a whole new layer to the Predator mythos that wasn't fully covered in the original. Thanks to this film, we got some understanding of the Hunter's culture. They were revealed to be members of an honour bound society with their own castes and structures, rather than blood-letting monsters with no restraint to <more>
speak of. Alongside this is Danny Glover's powerful lead role, a vision of Los Angeles as the epicentre of violent culture clashes foreshadowing the racial tensions that led to the 1992 riots and some brutally relentless action sequences. And yet despite all this, it's still looked on as the lesser of two movies, when the only argument to suggest this is "cos, you know, Arnie isn't in it is he?"Set in the then-future 1997, Predator 2 negates the rain-forest location by pitting the Hunter into the concrete jungle of LA. The city is on the brink of collapse, torn apart by street wars between rival drug gangs. Fittingly, the film begins with an out-gunned police force struggling to deal with a trigger happy band of Mexican coke pushers. Arriving at almost the same time are the veteran police man Mike Harrigan Glover and the Hunter, who watches and waits, selecting targets to add to the trophy cabinet. One horrific burst of mechanised violence later and Harrigan has a mystery on his hands, involving mutilated corpses and an invisible killer who vanished into thin air. Setting out to solve the case, Harrigan and his fellow officers pursue the Predator while trying to deal with the drug lords and a Government team that knows more than they are telling. Then things get personal when one of Harrigan's friends is killed...Danny Glover is nothing short of brilliant in this film. Older and wiser but more out of shape than Arnie, he is a far more realistic opponent for the Predator to face than the Governator ever was and shows what happens when your average cop fights the alien, rather than a pumped up superman. No disrespect to Arnie, but Glover is also a better actor and inhabits his character completely, going about his job with the same reckless professionalism but also a sense of embittered frustration. Harrigan is no hero, he's just a man who's spent more time in the trenches than most.The Hunter meanwhile is still just as formidable in the second round. This one is a bit more headstrong than the first, not afraid to waltz into the middle of firefights and rip Jamaican gangsters to pieces, but also a bit more vulnerable. The city after all is unfamiliar terrain and Harrigan has mastered their environment, giving him an edge that he perhaps wouldn't have held in the wild. In true sequel fashion meanwhile, the Predator gets a wealth of cool new weapons to play with, including a net made of razor wire, a spear tip launcher and best of all, a shiny metal disc perfect for slicing FBI guys in half.Shame then that the supporting cast isn't quite so colourful as Dillon, Mac, Blaine et al. The eighties action heroine of choice, Maria Conchita Alonso makes a decent appearance as a ball busting cop and she is joined with her Aliens co-star Bill Paxton as the smooth newbie, but neither are as memorable as the commandos were. Thank God then for Gary Busey, chewing up the scenery as the head of the investigation team.Aside from that though, Predator 2 is definitely the better film. It's a lot grittier for one thing, the cartoon gore of the first replaced with some gruelling ordeals. It's also much darker, thanks to the air of urban paranoia and allusions to drug smuggling and prostitution. The only thing that really lets it down is the fact that it relies a bit too heavily on racial stereotyping, but that's easy to forgive when you've got a finale as terrific as this. Lasting over three quarters of an hour, the final bout begins on a packed train, moves to a slaughterhouse where an elite team of specialists take on the Hunter in a frozen abattoir, before Harrigan gives chase to the alien, pursuing him over rooftops, down the the side of buildings and into the dark underbelly of the city. It hasn't got Arnie in it? It doesn't need him.
In 1st installment the creature landed into jungle ,in next it chose city in grip of chaos , L.A. Here it again started it killing spree by taking out the one who were engage in gun battle, both criminals and cops regardless. This time the elite army col played by Arnold Schwarzennegger is taken away by police detective played by Danny Glover of lethal weapon. When the most victims are gang lords then detective realized that they have got a new player in town. While he also did not knew that a team of FBI led by Gary busey is also secretly at trail of the suspect inside they had full info <more>
about their suspect. Again i saw the same alien with his same tactic and also its one good side not to kill innocent. I watched it 1st time in 1991 again next year but most enjoyable was on a rainy day at 12 DEC 1992 winter season, when my bro and his friend along with my friend who were also bros went on to watch a movie Cyborg but it was no longer on the show so we decided to move to another theater and here we found it. Its Dolby digital experience was very much great.I remember when the predator goes to hunt the local gang leader ,face to face , the sound his steps were making my seat shaken. While when it suddenly attacked the ongoing subway locomotion my friend was scared very much because he was sleepy and awaken by a sudden thunder. I some time again watch it and it is as much good as its predecessor.
Before I watched this film I saw the poor rating on the site and got concerned. I enjoyed watching the first one and was hoping the second one was able to deliver, well it did.This film had a brilliant storyline at had the scenes to keep you entertained. It amazes me how it gets poor ratings. More action, more killing and more people knowing what they are dealing with yet cant deal with it. Plus it helps you understand more about these Predators who come to Earth just too kill.If you enjoyed the first one then you will also enjoy this one, it may not have had a epic final fight like it did <more>
with the first one with Arnie but it is truly enjoyable.
This movie starts out with a gangland riot/war happening in LA. Okay, no problem. Then it drags a voodoo bocur into the scene and I was like, "WTF?! This isn't PREDATOR!" I checked the box and sure enough, it was. So I unpaused the DVD and started again.This attempt is completely different than the first in the attempt to modernize the Predator story. The characters are less solid, but more likable even though they included Bill Paxton. I don't mind Bill Paxton too much, actually. You know him. He was the whiner/fake spy in True Lies with Schwarzenegger. He played the <more>
whining punk leader that got his hand nearly ripped off in the first Terminator. He was the whining brother to Wyatt Erp in Tombstone. He also played the whiner Hudson in Aliens. And so now they want us to believe him as the "Cowboy;" a renegade tough guy cop. Okay. I'll buy it. But I want a refund and a Coke, okay? The Predators were done in a slick style in this attempt. I'm not going to say better, but slicker. Their gadgets were better conceived, as were their abilities, and you really felt like you got a bit more movie for the time you spent watching it.The story was solid and the performances were better than average. The first one was slow and suspenseful; a device well used in suspense type productions, as "Predator" was. This one moved at an even pace and wasn't slow anywhere.I'm too impatient to enjoy that suspense-building device, though. When I go see a monster movie, I want action. I need the character development, but the monsters better be aggressive at some point! But this one gives you both. You get to know the characters and to care about what happens to them, through the exchanges in virtual non-stop action sequences. This movie starts off with action and ends with action. Niiiice production. Very nice.You also see the Alien tie-in in this installment. At the end, when Danny Glover is standing inside the Predator ship, notice the Alien skull hanging on the back wall.It rates a 8.1/10 from...the Fiend :.
Very undervalued sequel suffering because of the first films success. (by Spikeopath)
Los Angeles is imploding with mayhem as gang wars fill the streets, an under pressure police force try to restore order, but both parties have another foe to worry about, a Predator is in town, and he's about to up the ante.Gone is Arnold Schwarzenegger, gone is John McTiernan, and gone is the jungle setting, so following in the foot steps of the ultimate beefcake movie that was Preadtor 1987 was an unenviable task it seems. Yet I personally feel that Predator 2 stands up to scrutiny as a fine entry into the sci-fi/action genre. Locating it among the urban decay of L.A. works real well, <more>
An enjoyably over-the-top sequel to the excellent original (by Woodyanders)
This jaunty, ultra-violent sequel to the top-drawer original has the titular nasty extraterrestrial the massive Kevin Peter Hall; the murderous mutant bear in "Prophecy" hunting for hapless'n'helpless human prey in bleakly futuristic Los Angeles, which by 1997 has been turned into a brutal and chaotic urban war zone hell that's practically run by two opposing drug cartels. Out to bag the pernicious intergalactic fiend are loose cannon maverick cop Mike Harrison a game portrayal by Danny Glover and arrogant military scientist Keyes a typically lively performance by <more>
the ever-crazed Gary Busey .Although completely predictable and pretty mindless, "Predator 2" nonetheless still sizes up as an enjoyably over-the-top sci-fi/action item thanks to Stephen Hopkins' brisk, stylish direction, first-rate make-up f/x by Stan Winston, a stirring score by Alan Silvestri, wall-to-wall in-your-face explosive action set pieces, a breathless frenetic pace, and plenty of excessive graphic splatter. The capable and interesting supporting cast qualifies as another substantial asset: Ruben Blades as Harrison's amiable partner Danny, Maria Conchita Alonso as foulmouthed female flatfoot Leona, the always delightfully dynamic Bill Paxton as cocksure badge bandit Jerry Lambert, Robert Davi as jerk fed Heineman, Calvin Lockhart as flamboyant Jamaican drug lord King Willie his back alley confrontation with the Predator is one of the picture's definite highlights , veteran character actress Lilyan Chauvan Mother Superior in the splendidly sleazy sicko Santa slasher classic "Silent Night, Deadly Night" as a stern coroner Lilyan easily cops the film's best line when she explains that one victim was "boned like a fish" , and, in an especially adroit piece of casting, infamously odious tabloid TV talk show host Morton Downey, Jr. as obnoxious loudmouth reporter Tony Pope. Foxy popular porn star Teri Weigel briefly appears clad solely in her birthday suit. Good, trashy fun.
