Wastes its cast and potential for over-the-top violence and swearing. Not to say there isn't some good to be found here - it just gets buried under the terrible story and throwaway gags that pepper this ill-fated Predator entry.

You know it’s a bad sign when Arnold Schwarzenegger himself turned down the role to star in this movie. I mean, Arnold does not make the boldest choices, but he made the right decision with this one.
Not to say it doesn't have any entertaining moments and colorful characters, who are cartoonish enough to be enjoyable. On a film making side however, it fails to be a movie. The story, editing, and writing is atrocious - Especially the ridiculous story line surrounding the autistic kid and the Predator. Also, the portrayal of disability here is really inaccurate and comes across …
