VVNG- It’s Earthlings vs. Predators as two groups of badasses from different planets go up against each other in this new installment of the Predator series. Now, you might hate this flick because of its abundance of imperfections, plot holes, and cheesiness. Or you might love it because of its killer action and witty humor, but no matter what you think of it, everyone should agree that the hunters from outer space are as ferocious as ever, and they are still very ugly motherfu***rs.
I give The Predator, the “Checky™ Seal of Approval!” Simply put, this movie is straight-up dumb sometimes. The government is unnecessarily evil, the predator’s motives and actions contradict themselves, and the plot is filled with nonsense. However, there are so many funny moments, spectacular kills, likable characters and pretty cool callbacks to previous installments that save this popcorn flick from being bad, and actually make it a very entertaining movie. Not to mention that the Predators look great, have the best weaponry, fight masterfully, are able to evoke fear, and are almost unstoppable, which makes them great villains.
So “Get to da choppa”, or your car, or whatever, and head on over to the theater so you can check out this action-comedy-sci-fi flick that is as entertaining as it is illogical. Just make sure you don’t go in expecting a masterpiece and you will surely be entertained by the (mostly) great humor, and impressively vicious action scenes.

Official Synopsis: From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home. The universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and an evolutionary biologist can prevent the end of the human race.
