THE PREDATOR - Part One - The Funniest Comedy of 2018 (Cynical Reviews)

The Predator (2018) might well be the funniest comedy of that year. But for all the wrong reasons.
The latest instalment in the Predator franchise, The Predator (2018) is both a complete mess and an insult to its intellectual property. After being hastily reshot and re-edited in response to awful test screenings, it was left as a pile of barely comprehensible garbage that writer/director Shane Black will never live down. It fails at being either a sci-fi horror or a comedy, being neither scary nor funny.
But throw in some terrible writing, over-the-top slapstick violence, bad CGI, unconvincing autism, and a little bit of controversy, and you have unintentional hilarity gold.

  • Glad I'm not the only one that thought this was hilarious.. A bit of a rift between a friend and I (I prefer the Alien franchise, she prefers Predator) however we both got the sinking feeling that this was going to be a big miss. And boy was it. Plus the Autism thing is kind of personal, and of course hollywood screwed it up for plot convenience. But at least we had a laugh.

  • Here's my exposition: I think they aren't Predators as much as they are "space archaeologists". Odd creatures' bones (like humans, for example) are fascinating, but they don't like digging because that's slow and boring and they only make weapons, ya know?

  • Let's keep in mind Olivia Munn was an actual fake gamer/geek girl that pretended to care about that type of stuff just to get the lonely, socially awkward guy crowd. Then she couldn't answer basic questions regarding something she was a supposed fan of. Now if you look at her twitter she's basically a hardcore SJW now with zero mention of games, comics, sci-fy,etc. She's faker than her silicon filled face.

  • Seems like Olivia Munn didn't care anymore about the movie. Plus it was the right thing to do to out a convicted child rapist and get his role cut. I think in the long run it would have hurt the movie more keeping that character in. So she put her own acting career on the line, instead of Shane Black's(as he knew about it and cast him) and the movie. I salute her for that. That some of her co-stars even thought that she should have waited to out the guy to the press... ouch. Fame, money and their careers above everything else i guess.

    • @Imaad Shahrukh Whether it is because of luck, talent, or whatever else, I am perplexed by this... Films like Leathal Weapon 1 and 2, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, The Nice Guys, and even Predator... They are all great partly due to him. But these recent stinkers have been REALLY bad... The next Predator movie could be great, so long as Black is relegated to a casual observer, not a director/writer/producer... (I don't mean the possible sequel to the 2018 film. Please God, let that film die...)

    • He is overrated. The fact that Shane Black directed Iron Man 3 and added that dumb plot twist was a sign that Predator would suck. It's weird how people defend this hack for controversial decisions while other directors such as Zack Snyder are equated with Hitler.

  • Being 18 when the original came out i was thoroughly disappointed with this film. The part in the lab when she says "you beautiful motherfucker" made me cringe, also i thought predators ran very fast yet the woman kept pace with predator as he escaped from the lab. What a fucking farce this was thanks Shane Black

  • I'm currently listening to the Audio novel version of it and the author does his best so hard to try and make it a good story with the shit script he was given. At one moment he does an awesome prose about the ship crashing and the sad majesty of a beautiful ship like that being damaged, giving background characters a whole backstory and quite likeable...and then we get to the scientist lady make that comment. Hell he tries to explain the stupid dog alien bringing shit to the main cast. To say it's mildly Schizophrenic is an understatement.

  • Well. Seeing your face was not something I was expecting today, but, neat! Also, thanks for the rant about autism. I really appreciate it. I wish people would stop treating mental illness and neurological disorders as cheap plot points. Especially since most of them seem to have ZERO actual understanding of the various ones they use (practically parodying them, more like).

  • So the director's friend with the sex conviction pays his dues but you, like every "starlet" who hasn't won an Academy Award yet, demands that the man - who has paid his dues to society as far as society is concerned - be denied employment? I assume that includes housing and food, and if not, why not - do you LIKE sexual harassers?! Let's just execute him. You get to be judge and jury. Apparently.
