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

The pointless dialogue using F bombs for no reason.

The movie was incredibly enjoyable.

It's entertaining.

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

Really exciting.

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

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.

climate change propaganda.

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.

Watchable and entertaining nothing special thou.

Don't Waste Your Time .

Waste of time and money .

Don't waste your time .

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.

Now that is garbage, litteraly every clichés and predictable scenes are in.

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

Worth a watch, pretty well produced and entertaining throughout.

Myself and others found it entertaining.

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

Don't waste your time .

Ugly, silly, stupid, boring...

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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....

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

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

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

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

You made waste my time watching this awful movie?

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

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.

waste of time and money.

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

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

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

One of the worst movies ever made!

waste of my money and time...

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

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.

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

Having said that, this was entertaining and a worthy movie in the series.

It was entertaining action and a lot funnier than expected.

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

entertaining .

Cliche hell .

Don't waste your time

Worst movie ever.

Complete waste of time and money .

I 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.

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

Boring Special FX?

A Waste Of Time.

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

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.

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

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.

Don't waste your money and your time.

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

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

Boring movie .


Keeps it light and entertaining.

What an absolute POS film and waste of time watching.

Worst Predator movie ever,dont 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.

This is a total waste of time and data.

Sure this movie was pure silliness but still enjoyable!

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

Don't waste your time.

Every character is predictable.

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

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

But it continues the "CinemaSin" cliche of the child with a disability being the key or something similar.

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

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

But I enjoyed it.

Solidly Enjoyable Action Flick .

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

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

Slapstick Comedy Version Of Predator But Still Enjoyable .

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

Other than that I enjoyed it!

Worst movie of life time .

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

many plot twists are highly predictable.

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

Dont waste yor time on this.

Thought it was pretty entertaining to be honest, not nearly as bad as people are saying it is.

Don't waste your time .

Waste of time .

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

Munn seems like she's bored.

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

No story , weak direction, and dreadful acting.

Worst movie in the entire Predator franchise.

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

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

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

The action was as expected and I enjoyed it.

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

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

The screenplay is dull and naive.

A pure waste of time!

No plot.

I found this to be very entertaining.

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.

This really is among the worst movies i ever seen.

Decently entertaining .

Don't waste your time .

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

Its super entertaining and the characters are fun and great.

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

WASTE of title & time.

Predictable Acting?

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

No plot.

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

It's enjoyable.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

This movie was soooo cool and the new predator was incredible and the whole movie was gripping and intense.

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.

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

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

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

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.

Unexpected FLEX.

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

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

Compelling characters who we care for?

Worst movie of 2018.

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

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.

Doing dishes was more entertaining.

Good entertaining flick .

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.


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

Boring .

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

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

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

There is no plot.

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

It's very entertaining film!

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.

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....

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.

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.

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

From the outset the direction is at best a cliche.

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

Man this movie is totally a waste of time.

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

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.

No plot, no cohesive story.

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

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.

I enjoyed it.

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

Confusing plot.

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

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

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

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

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

Don't waste your time.

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

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

One of the worst movies i saw this year.

Terribly contrived.

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.


Boring .

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...

Waste of time.

That being said, it WAS entertaining.

But this was a 2 hours waste of time.

What a waste of time.

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

lacking everything that made the first film good or enjoyable.

Waste of time....

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

" 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.

Please don't waste your time .

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

The characters are empty.

Just boring.

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.

Highly enjoyable .

) 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.

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

Waste of time and money.

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

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

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

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

Thomas Jane is enjoyable.

No plot no storyline.

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

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

I was surprised I actually enjoyed it!

But still enjoyable in my opinion.

Awesomely entertaining .

Don't waste your time.

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

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


Probably the single worst movie I've ever seen.


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

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

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

That'd be something worth watching.

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

Worst movie ever .

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

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

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

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

Enjoyable Film .

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?

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!

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.

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

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

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

**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.

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.

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

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

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

Worst movie of 2018 .

So for that reason alone it's worth watching.

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

From here, it gets quite confusing.

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.

Don't waste your time with this crap!

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

Pointless .


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.

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

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.

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

One of the worst movies I've ever seen .

I found it quite entertaining.

boring .

An enjoyable movie.

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

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

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

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

Predator Fan: Enjoyed It .

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!

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

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

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!

When done well they can be surprisingly enjoyable.

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?

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

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

Entertaining if a little predictable .

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

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

Its very predictable, clearly made for cash grab.

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

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


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

Waste of time and money.

Seriously, don't waste your time.

Fell asleep quite early!

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.

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.

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

Don't waste your time.

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

) total waste of time and total waste of money.

In fact it is a very good entertaining movie.

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

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

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

waste of mind but not a waste of time

I cannot overstate how compassless and empty this is.

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

Pointless storyline, forgettable characters.

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

Don't waste your time.

It's just boring.

Don't waste your time on this one, you'll just continue to be more and more disappointed as the movie goes on.

Others are cosmically bland and uninteresting.

The worst movie I've ever seen .

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

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

That being said, I enjoyed it.

What a dull silly movie!

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.

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

I am in the minority of someone who enjoyed it.

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

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

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

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.

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

Completely different and entertaining .

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

Don't waste your time.

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

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

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

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...

Worst movie I've seen , possibly ever.

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

What a waste of time.

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

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

boring storyline

Don't waste your time .

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

Entertaining either way.

Entertaining throughout .

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

Entertaining, mindless action with some funny lines.

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

this was once again a action packed movie.

Please don't waste your time with this film.

Very enjoyable action and SF.

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

We've become way too pretentious.

I personally like that it was funny and action packed.
