No it's not anything like the original , but I enjoyed it.

The action was as expected and I enjoyed it.

Weak CGI, bland plot and awful editing makes this one of the worst movies of 2018.

Keep it simple, stop with the confusing over the top plots.

Nothing will be as good as the original 1987 version, but this was a funny, action packed addition.

Don't waste your time with this crap!

No plot no storyline.

Don't waste your time

The movie is entertaining enough and there are problems to be sure.

Then it insulted my intelligence, then it bored me, then it chucked stereotypes at me, then it was stupid, etc. Horribly written, visually not bad, poorly structured and edited, mostly badly acted (I'd listen to Sterling K.


I said xXx The Return of Xander Cage was the worst movie ever.

NoIt does have it's moments, it's funny, it's action packed - what's not to like?

There is no excitement, no real plot....

The Predator does come short on having a thin plotline and needs more depth however it really is an entertaining addition to the franchise.

From the outset the direction is at best a cliche.

No plot what so ever and terrible CGI on the mega predator and that ridiculous ending.

Worst movie ever.

Shane Black could have followed the same tired, old formulaic, by the numbers' storyline as the others.

This is a total waste of time and data.

By far the worst movie i have ever watched in my life .

Keeps it light and entertaining.

After reading some reviews I had lowered my expectations but I have to say it was an action packed movie, quite fun.

The problem was the basic premise, the terrible disjointed script, and the forced comedy.

It got to be predictable, boring, cringey like none other, and downright insulting.

it feels like a first draft of a short story that is too long because every other line is an attempt at a joke.

It was very good 🐵 the story was great kept me watching looked on my phone 1ns only so they kept me glued to be fiar well worth the watch suprices galore

Don't waste your money and your time.

Please don't waste your time with this film.

I enjoyed all previous Predator movies, but this one gets so boring, the acting so bad, that you should get a medal for watching the whole movie.

Much like with Alien: Covenant, this film was filled with so much potential and yet for largely unknown reasons, it was massively reshaped at the last minute to turn the whole movie into little more than a mess that attempts to please everyone, but fails and ends up annoying and boring the audience.

It is the cheapest form of hollow and empty Hollywood scripting, character stereotyping and mediocre acting, as we've unfortunately been forced to get accustomed to in recent years.

Dont waste yor time on this.

Nevertheless, this is still an awesome movie with sleek direction and a summer entertainer vibe that will pump your adrenaline the minute the movie ends.

There is no plot.

I've seen better acting in a school Nativity play and it's a completely uninteresting/annoying cast of characters.

Ugly, silly, stupid, boring...

many plot twists are highly predictable.

I was hoping for a lot more form this film, that said I think that's always the case with an old classic franchise trying to be rejuvenated..slow start I thought with the last 40mins being the best...

No plot, no cohesive story.

The movie was incredibly enjoyable.

Pointless storyline, forgettable characters.

This was as entertaining as any of the Predator movies and definitely as good as the first one starring Arnold....

Worth a watch, pretty well produced and entertaining throughout.

This is by far the worst movie in the Predator franchise.

Most are saying this is the worst movie on the Predator franchise.

Sure this movie was pure silliness but still enjoyable!

Compelling characters who we care for?

I enjoyed it.

Please don't waste your time .

I love the other movies , but this is going in the "Top 10 worst movies.

30 minutes into this I said this is the worst movie ever and it actually gets worse.

Enjoyable Film .

What an absolute POS film and waste of time watching.

It was entertaining action and a lot funnier than expected.

If you're looking for a classic predator movie you'll be upset, but this was definitely fun and worth the watch otherwise.

Entertaining either way.

Complete waste of time and money .

What an utter waste of time, resources and money.

As advice, don't waste your valuable time in watching this thing called film.

Worst movie I've seen , possibly ever.

Decently entertaining .

Add in a genius kid with Aspergers who is genuinely likable, a villain who was funny and entertaining.

One of the worst movies i saw this year.

A Fun And Entertaining Monster Movie With A B-Movie Style .

And it kills me to see Thomas Jane going nowhere or perhaps even backwards with his Hollywood career.

Really exciting.

This one is unbelievably bland and uninterested.

It is a complete waste of time, wont even entertains you a bit.

I went into this movie open-minded and what i got was an action packed film with some bad jokes but enjoyable nonetheless.

Don't waste your time.

This is an entertaining pop-corn monster movie with the odd jump out of your skin moment, alongside some rather sketchy and very American, comedy one liners....

This really is among the worst movies i ever seen.

Don't waste your time.

A pure waste of time!

Well I can honestly say I enjoyed it I laughed cringed cried and yelled at least a couple of times at the tv (even if it was where's the dog?

Don't waste your time.

Unexpected FLEX.

It's enjoyable.

Entertaining if a little predictable .

That was what made what would otherwise have been a ho-hum scifi movie.

The screenplay is dull and naive.

waste of time and money.

When done well they can be surprisingly enjoyable.

In 1987, Arnold Schwarzenegger was the lead actor of the engaging and original action-sci-fi film "Predator".

The lead guy was a generic "I'm a tough guy soldier" who was about as entertaining as watching paint dry.

I found it to be quite enjoyable the jokes were OK , the plot and characters quite good fun.

The characters constitutes the usual parade of plain, boring archetypes from start to end: the stubborn scientist woman, the serious stern leader, the jockey, the traumatized soldier, the quiet one and worst of all the authistic "genius" boy (who by the by) acts like the adult of the group.

What a waste of time.

I have seen all the movies (apart from the AVP ones) and I can say that I really like the first one, the second is just meh I think and Predators is actually a solid entertaining movie that brought us something new.

It's entertaining.

well actually Predators and a fast paced well developed and original take on the Predator franchise.

The acting is half-decent, they forced the plot, stay away from this movie, don't waste your time or money...

Thomas Jane is enjoyable.

I thought this was right up there with the best of 2 hour escape sessions around in this the new era of the slow burn 15 part series.

We've become way too pretentious.

The father was mostly annoying and the son was just a basic cliche "wonderchild".

That'd be something worth watching.

The story is a huge cliché, the conversations are brainded and completely unfitting for the situations and the whole script feels as if it was put together by 12 year olds trying to act cool in front of their 10 year old friends.

as it seems to be aimed at kids and teenagers that are michael bay's transformer fansThis is like terminator Genesis - rehashing the old formula in hopes hiting jackpot, but at the end failing miserably and making the worst movie of the whole franchise

Don't waste your time, especially if you like old movies .

But everything else is fast, a lot of action, too many things going on, and yet very entertaining.

This is a movie with some great, great stuff buried under more than enough bland action movie crap to make it overall not very good.

A waste of my life that I can never get back...

I think director wanna gets a "Alien 2" taste but end up with a "boring fighting and fighting" mediocre film.

Its super entertaining and the characters are fun and great.

Other than that I enjoyed it!

Others are cosmically bland and uninteresting.

This movie is simply the worst movie in the alien and predator universe I've ever seen, forced and fool humor destroying any seriousness of the narrative, an autistic boy learning alien languages (wtf), new and meaningless elements introduced into this nut-like universe, It's simply one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

The pointless dialogue using F bombs for no reason.

saw Valerian 3 times too, as comparison, stunning CGI, acting ...

None of the different stories matter and instead of helping the plot, they just make the plot more confusing, dull, uninteresting and BORING.

The predator is also bigger and much more fierce, and that makes it more engaging.

The plot very bad, the same as the fatal performances.. The worst movie of the Predator franchise...

Worst movie in the entire Predator franchise.

Probably the single worst movie I've ever seen.

This is one of the worst movies you will ever see, and yes, this pile of stinking crap killed the Predator franchise.

It's so bad I fell asleep about a third into it.

The movie is rather fast paced and it feels as if every exposition is crammed into every free time slot available.

Mutated dogs for no reason which end up helping the Humans, cgi everywhere, the body on the non CGI predator is way to humanised, and to make the whole predators weaponry automated just makes the predator creature completely pointless, and then the trophies wth.

If you compare to the other Predator movies it most likely will be your least favorite one but if you expect a fun action packed 2 hours then you actually might enjoy the movie the way i enjoyed it.

In all a huge waste of time, waste of bandwidth downloading this movie, waste of budget to even watch this movie.

The Predator him self use the translator ( what a joke ) Absolute trash The movie was a waste of my time in life.

It's just boring.

Worst movie of 2018...

If you go in with that mentality it's actually enjoyable, only reason I can't give it 1 star.

Overall this is a bad/below mediocre movie you will only enjoy if boredom is winning over.

waste of mind but not a waste of time

Dont waste your time, just dont!

Cheesy, fun, action packed made mix of the a team, old Arnie movies and good old 80's movies that make you go "yeah baby!


Predator Fan: Enjoyed It .

It's entertaining, has action, and some light comedy.

That being said, I enjoyed it.

But most everything story-wise from the original, and its sequels, is now deadened by the bland scripting etc of this one.

There were some parts of it that made me cringe a little, but overall I thought it was entertaining.

One of the worst movies I've seen in a looooong time .

It is completely ludicrous & if you are in the right frame of mind, it will actually be very entertaining.

All other 3 Predator movies are about being hunted, which made the movies really exciting, each movie wondering what technology, weapons etc. they'd come up with.

This film was so cliche and so bad, i was boring, why 20th century did spend this a lot of money for this?

Waste of time and money.

Very enjoyable action and SF.

On the other hand at times it's pretty entertaining.

Worst movie ever .

Cliche hell .

(2018) yeah.. nothing happened here.. !!!!!.

With a stellar cast including Thomas Jane, the stunning Olivia Munn and the excellent Keegan-Michael Key it had no problems on that front.

One of the worst movies i watched in along long time.

Its very predictable, clearly made for cash grab.

But this was a 2 hours waste of time.

This is quite possibly the worst movie I have ever seen.

Any chance of a compelling plot was undermined by poorly-timed jokes.

I am in the minority of someone who enjoyed it.


For a Predator action flick I have been waiting for the muscle to return, nope they gave us old black guy + pregnant lady in predator 2, an uninteresting suicide squad bunch in Predators and now this movie - the loonie MASH bunch.

Non-stop swearing, macho crap, no plot, characters that make you laugh out loud.

Guess the original is one you needed to love when the movies were still pretty cliche and cheesy.

Worst Predator movie ever,dont waste your time.

It has like 3 or 4 cool action scenes, but they're way too short and after each one you have like 30 minutes of boring, nonsensical and irrelevant human plot.

That being said, Shane Black's film is an entertaining action movie that is incredibly fast-paced, has good action sequences, and is a blast from start to finish.

Just boring.

Don't waste your time with this piece of s**t Arnie should have won an Oscar for the original.. and that's being sarcastic.

Munn seems like she's bored.

A Waste Of Time.

2/3 of the movie is actually pretty fun but in the last 1/3 it gets a bit dull and the movie feels like it lacks that Wow factor.

Don't waste your time.

Waste of time .

Bad story, bad acting, bad dialogues so it was a totally waste of time and i hope they will not make another Predator film in this style.

It is, in fact, the worst movie ever...

Watchable and entertaining nothing special thou.

Ojk along with The Meg this must be the worst movie of the year i mean the Predator was suposed to be scary ya know nothing of that this stupid parody of a movie is useless.

If you're interested in some silly entertainment it is okay, but you might fall asleep before you're halfway through, or grow so annoyed with it that you switch it off.

I found this to be very entertaining.

If you're looking for an adrenaline ride, this movie ain't it.

This was the worst movie I have seen so far this year.

Slapstick Comedy Version Of Predator But Still Enjoyable .

The worst movie I've ever seen .

All in all this film is a waste of money and I'm afraid it could be the end of the Predator franchise.

And I enjoyed it as a sci fi action movie, it wasn't bad.

Don't waste your time with this sorry excuse of a movie.

Great entertaining movie for what it is not a franchise ruiner too.

boring .

Highly enjoyable .

Both stayed in the game way too long and ruined their legacy.

If you enjoyed "Predator" or even "Predator 2," give it a try, but it's a waste of time in my opinion.

Don't waste your time.

Olivia Munn takes "blank slate scientist woman" and basically plays her like a special forces soldier or something, and it's a frequently pleasant surprise to see her sidestep cliche bs throughout the flick.

Big fan of the original and I found this one quite entertaining.

Good entertaining flick .

This movie is so boring it makes The English Patient look like Die Hard.

Don't waste your time.

Waste of time and money.

First off Olivia Munn character was pointless to the whole plot.

I believe it is worth the watch and frankly hope that the hinted at; 'The Predator Part II' will happen.

Also I would have cast someone else besides Olivia Munn uninteresting acting.

Watch it if you like action movies it's still very enjoyable.

Worst movie of 2018 .

Instead what we're left with is a dull uninteresting film poisoned with bad language, dialogue and acting.

Overall, despite it's flaws, I actually found this movie entertaining and it's a unique story in the Predator universe.

There are just some scenes missing throughout that make the film confusing.

How this movie turned into a boring, collusal mess is beyond me.

Ok this has to be the worst movie I've seen.

I can wholeheartedly say that i will never ever watch this abysmal, unworthy, waste of nearly 2 hours of my life "movie" again!

The worst movie I have seen all year and that included the spy who dumped me.

That's probably why I enjoyed it so much, and I watched it twice.

The cheap and empty story line is glazed over with over the top curse words that only makes it worse.

Completely different and entertaining .

Don't waste your time.

) this waste of 107 minutes precious life continues to drag on in an utterly insipid uninspired, pseudo-sciencey, formulaic fashion.

Don't waste your time, unless you are into really bad movies.

That being said, it WAS entertaining.

Worst movie of 2018.

While this movie was predictable it certainly had some great moments.

It had all of the potential there to be much better than what it was, but in the end it was a waste of time.

waste of my money and time...

But I enjoyed it.

What a waste of time.

I love the predator franchise and even AVP but I can honestly say that this was the worst movie of the predator franchise!

I got halfway through to the climate change line then had to turn off...

Boring .

It's very entertaining film!

The movie is good but a bit confusing Features a different way of other franchise movies

From here, it gets quite confusing.

Do not waste any of your time watching this utterly tedious, banal, moronic rubbish.

I've read the reviews and they said it's a bad movie, but I thought it's good for a boring night.

In fact it is a very good entertaining movie.

I was surprised I actually enjoyed it!

Anyways, I know that was more of a rant, but I was a bit annoyed that a movie about alien hunters from space with a good budget and director was so damn dull and such a mess.

It's entertaining, has the right formula and is a good addition to the franchise.

) is awful, the jokes are awful, the script is awful, the acting is awful, the cgi is awful, the editing makes the film practically unwatchable - I had no idea what was going on for most of it.

This mess has gotta be in the running for worst movie in this franchise.

boring storyline

Start with a script that is both silly and ridiculously more vulgar that it needs to be, add really crappy acting, really uninteresting Mary Sue characters, lots of illogical plot points, and a director who has no idea what he's doing, and you have The Predator.

It's a hoax and it's a shame that Hollywood had to place "muh climate change" propaganda in this movie.

One of the worst movies ever made!

lacking everything that made the first film good or enjoyable.

Doubting about if this is a joke or not, and the predator will wake up in its bed, realizing that it was all a dream, then turning on his pillow, looking at the stars through his window and falling back asleep to decimated planets and cross breeding species.


There are some really entertaining deaths and it was just satisfying overall to see that they wanted to make it as violent as the first one, because let's be honest, we all went into this movie wanting to be entertaind.

Go and do something interesting, like watch paint dry or something

The Predator is a boring, nonsensical, embarrassing piece of junk, which makes the AVP franchise look good.

No substance, character intrigue or plot that's engaging and I'm being generous with this rating.

" The predator 1987 was classic, the predator 1990 and 2010 where entertaining, not classical but still entertaining while Predator 2018 was insulting to the Predator franchise, boring, forgettable and literally the weakest of the Predator franchise.

I also liked all the various locations, instead of the same old, boring jungle terrain.

Don't waste your time.

Don't waste your time .

Boring movie .

Pointless .

Don't waste your time .

This is on the other hand, is just clumsy, pointless, derivative and entirely frustrating to view over the almost 2 hour runtime.

Black is usually the go to man for a witty, engaging and exciting story.

Myself and others found it entertaining.


The realization that this movie is a stereotype of stereotypes sets in, and it actually becomes fascinating.

Good action with just the right amount comedy mixed in made this film highly enjoyable.

Seriously, don't waste your time.

somehow they have manage to turn the series in to even more of a joke, losing absolutely everything that made predator an amazing film and replacing it all with slap stick humour and pointless violence, it's not funny it's full of terrible acting, the story is garbage it literally brings nothing to the table.

Expect the unexpected because you just can't tell where this movie will take you.

A waste of time, bad plot, bad acting, horrible cgi, do yourself a favour and watch the original again instead.

Even the avp duology was far more entertaining and watchable; which by the way is saying a LOT.

Unfortunately just a waste of time destroying a suberb character like The Predator.

A surprisingly enjoyable 2/3 combined with a terrible final act.

It was even suggested that it was one of the worst movies of 2018 and comparable with the messy AVP movies.

Don't waste your time , terrible acting .. bas story line .

He's suposed to be this very intelligent boy who has no friends etc, you all know the cliché, so at least you could make him likeable?

But still enjoyable in my opinion.

Awesomely entertaining .

Terrible acting, worse writing, and by far one of the worst movies of 2018.

Worst movie of life time .

Some are generic, some are bland, some are just incredibly silly or incompetent and some are just there because why not.

Not the Best, but an Entertaining ride with some terrific action and cinematography .

Waste of time....

The casting is also very well selected, and everybody works decently, so if you seek a fast paced enjoyment, go for it.

Don't waste your time .

This review feels pretty pointless in many ways, as I don't think I can trash the film any more than anyone else has, as there doesn't seem to be any positive reviews at all (apart, apparently, from some obviously paid ones other reviewers have seen!

By far the the lowest peak of the series and probably one of the worst movie ever.

Solidly Enjoyable Action Flick .

While it's loaded with corniness, cliches and predictability, it's action packed, fun and the humor lines well delivered.

Waste of time.

The only entertaining parts of the movie was with the predator because the goreography and the fighting was funny and unrealistic.

No plot worth mentioning, the characters in the movie are awful and completly unreal.

Don't hate so much, If you would just sit back and take it for what it is its quite enjoyable.

From start to finish I found myself on the edge of my seat.

This is a casual, fresh new take thats throughly enjoyable.

Waste of time and money .

Entertaining throughout .

This movie is so entertaining I've watched it several times I really hope they have it in 42 long for the next one and that the lobotomy dog returns this is the best Predator movie so far paying homage to Arnold and Danny Glover's and the predator where the girl received the spear at the end when the alien went into the ice so I hope there's another one made in the future just enough humor Sience fiction and action to make it a worthwhile watch

Not the rest of the series, but it's a good entertaining moment.

maybe one of the worst movies i have ever seen in my life.

Bar none, this is one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

What a dull silly movie!

Entertaining, mindless action with some funny lines.

This film sucks really really badly its as bad as the comical jeepers creepers 3,, a predator with a massive head doing parkour and shooting guns it's ridiculous, acting is awful, no plot, no character, no nothing,, arnies movie should of just been left alone as a single film and not all these so called follow ups or before and afters....

I didn't get the misfit A-team bit, the alien dogs were pointless, too many pointless deaths, no invention and lots of empty dialogue.

The jokes and the oddly elongated scenes are cute the first couple times but then get boring.

BUT I enjoyed it for what it was, a B flick monster popcorn movie.

I enjoyed it .

If this is the direction the franchise is taking, they should seriously just kill it off, a pointless addition of a storied franchise.

The acting is cliche and the supporting cast adds zilch to the film other than slight, sophomoric humor.

Genuinely if you took out the comedy (which was funny) you wouldn't know what your watching cause there is no story.

Boring .

For fans, it's a massive disappointment and for the general public, it's just a bit boring.

Man this movie is totally a waste of time.

No story line, forced jokes and forced scenes to create impact...

The Predator is a waste of time, and a waste of talent, and will hopefully never become the reboot franchise it dreams to be.

Maybe back in the days it was more scary and its technology was incredable but now I watched it more as a good entertaining parody.

By far worst movie of the year.

After 20 minutes of watching this comedy version of the Predator I was bored and didn't last much longer than 30 mins before I turned this absolute piece of cr*p off.

On the other hand, the movie is good enough to be worth watching (if you do not whimper continuously for the previous series).

No plot.

climate change propaganda.

Would I have preferred a back-to-basics, serious and intense thriller full of great action, like the first?

So for that reason alone it's worth watching.

The action scenes are intense right off the bat and I give applause to the stunt coordinatation and live-action sequences that were pulled off throughout the movie.

Every character is predictable.

You made waste my time watching this awful movie?

WASTE of title & time.

Obviously not as good as the original, but I enjoyed it thoroughly.

No story , weak direction, and dreadful acting.

An enjoyable movie.

Terribly contrived.

Don't waste your time .

While the action is intense and the subject matter timely, there's very little plot and character development to substantiate this follow-up.

entertaining .

As an original fan that has got to be the biggest, most disjointed load of tripe l have ever witnessed.

Confusing plot.

This steaming pile of crap only managed to be unfunny, formulaic and above all with amateurish acting and pretentious writing and direction.

One of the worst movies I've ever seen .

I cannot overstate how compassless and empty this is.

One of the worst movies ever, and sadly the worst Predator film ever made.

) total waste of time and total waste of money.

We have a bunch of pervy-but-in-a-good-way ex-soldiers going after a Predator (oh wait, there's two.. in a plot-twist that nearly renders the entire first couple of acts pointless!

Its pointless to write a full review because that would be more effort than the film makers put into this movie.

I think this is exactly the point, a tongue-in-cheek, over-the-top, metafilm, but at the same time a highly entertaining action flick.

This movie is silly at all, the Story is cheap, the full movie is waste of time.

But there's still just too much of that bland modern actioner look and I felt it just suffocated a lot of the good underneath it.

But the special effects were great, the predator looked amazing, the action was entertaining, the acting was okay, majority of the attempts at humour were cringy, and there was little to no tension.

Fell asleep quite early!

I personally like that it was funny and action packed.

He has made an entertaining new Predator film, which sometimes can get used to for the fans of the original Predator film.

It ended up being more of a action comedy and completely disregarded the horror aspects the first two films had where you as a viewer was on the edge of your seat praying the characters could escape spines intact.

Really the original one was better and series which started on such a good success has lost it in between by continuos bore scripts in sequels.

The hero are a ragtag bunch of soldiers again, but, again, intelligently, there is some really entertaining banter between them that, in the long run, makes us like them and care how they go.

Poor attempts at comedy, lame action, unbelievable characters doing stupid things, a special kid running around with Predator tech, poorly defined characters and villains, and most of all just a stupid failure of a story that is both confusing and boring.

Don't waste your time or emotion on nostalgia, you'll be disappointed with the result.

Even to write about such movie is a complete waste of time.. .

The characters are empty.

Ugh, I feel so empty after having just watched the film.

**The story is confusing; please tell if it even makes sense (SPOILER ALERT):A soldier grabs some predator technology, while in another location; a group of scientists have a living predator while in another place the soldier´s son manages to study the predator´s technology.

Bad script, bad jokes, bad acting, bad casting, bad CGI & visual effects, no suspense, cringe laden scenes, mindless action, badly scripted emotions, predictable plot progression & worst of all; glaring in-continuity along with stuff that defies physics to an extent that you just lose your patience to let go for fiction sake...

This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen.
