A fun energetic romp when “The Predator” visits earth
»
»
This film has all you expect from a predator movie – secret government agency set up to study the aliens, paranoia, incredulity, high tech alien weapons and gore galore. This installment features fast pace action and quick repartee. No grunting dialog here.

The movie postulates that the Predators visit earth collecting DNA, to create GMO hunters with all the best traits from around the galaxy. Their visits are more frequent now because they see humans as facing extinction due to climate change. The movie is global warming preachy for about 20 seconds. It is enough to explain the predator’s motivation, but not enough to give up the Buick for a bicycle.

There is a predator chasing another predator, a predator chasing humans, humans chasing a predator, humans chasing humans, predator devil dogs chasing humans and a devil dog playing fetch with hand grenades. Got all that?

The movie has Asperger Syndrome, Tourette Syndrome, PTSD and many familiar faces. There’s the economist from “The Newsroom”. The Iron Island man who will not be king from “The Game Of Thrones”, the detective from “The Expanse” and even the secret agent girl friend of “Chuck”. So nice to see they all found work.

If you don’t like blood and blasts, avert your gaze from “The Predator”.
