Predator, The (2018) 
The Predator - Review
1.5/4 stars

"You are one beautiful motherfucker".

Wow, this was embarrassing to watch.

‘The Predator’ is a mishmash of tones with a potty mouth. Really abusing that ‘R’ rating with every chance they get. 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 insulting. Weirdly enough, Shane Black has tourette's.

To be honest, I can’t believe Shane Black directed this. How could you go from “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” and ‘The Nice Guys’, then something like this. I can’t fully grasp what Black’s main vision was or what he’s going for. Completely misses the point of the original.

The awesome score is gone and John McTiernan magic touch is needed. Olivia Munn as a scientist? What a joke. Boyd Holbrook is such a boring lead; he just plays tough guy with a gun. Predator Hounds are so useless and a wasted opportunity. ‘Mega Predator’ is just whatever. Not threatening at all.

Overall rating: “You're one ugly motherfucker!“
