Dir.: Stephen Hopkins
Starring: Danny Glover, Rueben Blades, Maria Conchita Alonso, Gary Busey and Bill Paxton
A worthy if slightly underwhelming sequel to John McTiernans’ rock-ém, sock-’em Predator with Danny Glover as the dogged Detective Harrigan who finds himself in the thick of a violent clash between the Jamaican-Columbian drug wars only to find out there is a far more menacing and powerful nemesis wandering the blood-stained streets and filthy alley ways. Thanks to this film we can more of an insight into the Yutja hunting culture as well as a valuable peek into their world as intergalactic game hunters. This was also the film that sparked off the Alien Vs. Predator phenomenon, something which would be kept in the wheelhouse for a good 15 years until… well, that is a review for another day.
I still don’t think Predators should swear. That’s just tacky.
