Trivia

When The Predator stalks Harrigan at the graveyard. The Predator encounters a boy with a toy machine gun, but does not kill him, when The Predator learns that the toy machine gun is fake and lets the boy live. The Predator is known to kill those who are armed with weapons. If the boy was armed with a real machine gun - The Predator would had killed him. See more »

Goofs

When the Predator regains consciousness at the slaughter house resuming his chase after Hannigan, he sees Hannigan in infrared scope, a major bloop, as the Predator didn't put his mask back on. Anyone who watched the 1st installment must remember: without the mask the Predator can only see in red, with only minor distinctions (i.e. hand-to-hand combat with Szhwarzenegger). The Predator didn't put his mask back on all throughout till the very end, occasionally using his respirator seen on the rooftop sequence etc. Inside the Predator's spaceship, again, he sees Hannigan down on the floor in infrared.

Crazy Credits

When the Elder Predator throws Harrigan the flintlock pistol he says "Take it". Harrigan reads the inscription "1715" ... the subtitles on the DVD regard the Predator as 'mumbles incoherently' but the Predator, being from a society based on trophies and the hunt, just witnessed Harrigan make a kill and not take a trophy. He is calling Harrigan a "heathen". See more »

User Reviews

 
"The Lions. The Tigers. The Bears. Oh My..."
2 June 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Underrated, interesting sequel to the Arnold Schwarzenegger hit has Danny Glover trading in his user friendly Roger persona to play a rougher, tougher, more kick ass cop who fears heights and goes one on one with a new Predator, who has some new tricks to share with the world when he lands in LA during a wave of both crime and heat.

Danny Glover may not be Schwarzenegger but he is quite good in his role as the cop.

The action is well mounted and the big difference of having the Predator in a city VS the jungle makes for some very interesting atmospheric moments and what not. There's also some SEX! Something that was sadly missing from the first film. The first film is better but this is still a worthy action film in its own right.

"Seems he has a taste for beef."

"I didn't think he was a vegetarian."
