Is it a Sequel or a Remake?
I struggle to find words for this movie. I have grown to dislike strong language, which this movie has in spades. The action sequences were pretty good, but the special effects could have been better (I watched it on Netflix, so quality might have been an issue).
This movie has an entertaining story line. A bunch of "predators" from planet Earth (soldiers, killers, thugs, psychos, etc...) are abducted by the Predator aliens who then take them to their hunting range planet. Blood, guts, corpses, alien technology, betrayal, double cross, crazy people and more blood and guts... pretty much summarizes the majority of the movie.
Here's my big problem. This is way too similar to the original Predator. The guy with the mini-gun, the knife/sword showdown between the Japanese guy and the predator, the jungle, the music, the two lone survivors being the main protagonist and a girl, etc... are all too similar to what happens in the first movie. It's like the production team couldn't decide whether to make a sequel or a remake, so they said yes to both and squished them together.
If you're a die hard fan of the franchise, worth the buy. If you just want some entertainment, rent it or borrow it.
