This electrifying action sequel unleashes the deadly invisible Predator in another jungle -- the urban jungle of Los Angeles. Danny Glover stars as a lieutenant who mistakenly concludes that mangled bodies found by the police are the work of feuding gangs. Instead, he finds himself confronting a savage alien who has come from a distant world to hunt humans for sport. Gary Busey and Ruben Blades co-star in this suspense-packed, high-tech thriller.
Predator wreaked havoc in the jungle and struck box-office gold, so Hollywood logic dictated that Predator 2 should raise hell in the big, bad city. Los Angeles, to be specific, and this near-future L.A. (circa 1997) is an ultra-violent playground for the invisibility-cloaked alien that hunted Arnold Schwarzenegger in the previous film. Scant explanation is given for the creature's return, and because Ah-nuld was busy making Total Recall, Danny Glover was awkwardly installed as the maverick cop (is there any other kind?) who defies a government goon (Gary Busey) to curtail the alien's inner-city killing spree. But why bother, when the victims are scummy Colombian drug lords? Don't look for intelligent answers; director Stephen Hopkins favors wall-to-wall action over sensible plotting, allowing Stan Winston's more prominently featured Predator to join the ranks of iconic movie monsters. The promise of Alien vs. Predator was only fulfilled in comic books, but look closely: there's a familiar-looking skull in the Predator's trophy case! --Jeff Shannon

The actual Predator was very impressive and had a lot more weapons than the one in the original, which I thought was cool. My favorite was the Smart Disk, which cut Gary Busey's character Keys in half. Stan Winston did another excellent job with the Predator, as he does in all his movies. The only thing I didn't like was how long it took for Steven Hopkins, the director, to reveal the actual creature. We've already seen it before, what's the point of holding it off until twenty minutes into the movie?
The movie has quite a few good action scenes in the movie which do not disappoint, filled with blazing guns and buckets of blood on the floor. The thing that doesn't make sense is why they had a full minute of pure uneccesary nudity involving a prostitute and a gang member. A second later five Jamacians come in and the Predator just ends up killing them all.
The light and sound in the film are very good for a cruddy movie and Fox did a good job. The extras include two featuretts including talks with the actors and the making of the Predator. There is also a theatrical trailer.
Overall PREDATOR 2 is a fun movie to watch and should be part of any die hard fan's collection.
Danny Glover plays a maverick cop in the vein of Harry Callahan in Clint Eastwood's Dirty Harry movies. As Danny hunts down Columbian drug lords, he soon runs across an alien predator also hunting the same Columbian drug lords. While Danny should be happy that someone else is taking out Columbian drug lords, apparently Danny would rather it be the police instead of an alien hunter, so soon Danny finds himself on the trail of the alien.
The original "Predator" had a number of plot holes that were easy to ignore because of the nearly non-stop action. "Predator 2" has even more plot holes, and occasionally they intrude into the action enough that you have to pay attention to them. Perhaps the biggest plot hole is the arrogance and stupidity of Gary Bussey as government agent Peter Keyes. It seems that in action movies the feds always end up being portrayed as too good for everyone's own good, including their own. If Gary and his team were as technologically astute as they appeared to be, they should have recognized that the alien could see their lights in the meat locker. While that particular incident may have been the biggest plot hole, there are a number of others that are occasionally distracting that I will leave for the viewer to discover.
The real charm of this movie is that Danny is physically not a match for the predator, and thus must rely much more on his intelligence to thwart the predator.Read more ›
