The Moral Majority: The Predator

THE PREDATOR is a goofy, violent, profane sequel in the series stemming back to the 1987 PREDATOR starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

In it, a predator alien space ship crashes, and a special forces sniper, McKenna, encounters the predator and survives. He steals some alien technology and ships it home, before he’s apprehended by a dark government agency that’s trying to keep the lid on the alien invasions. When the predator goes after the tech, McKenna finds out the tech went to his ex-wife and son, so now he must escape government agents that want to kill and silence him and save his son from the predator heading his way.

THE PREDATOR is a mess. A hodgepodge of characters, none of whom truly take off as likable or interesting people, muffles all the drama and jeopardy. There’s also bad CGI throughout. Positively, there’s a light theme of sacrifice and selflessness. Other than that, however, THE PREDATOR is full of despicable characters and dumb politically correct moments. There’s abundant foul language and extreme graphic violence as well.
