The Jamaican voodoo posse gangs seen in the film were based on actual gangs that were terrorizing New York City and Kansas City at one point in the mid- to late-1980s. See more »
When Keyes is giving Lt. Harrigan a full explanation of just who and what the Predator is, he lists a series of places where the Predator has previously made an appearance; and among these places he cites Iwo Jima. Keyes explains that the Predator is "drawn by heat, and conflict". This elaborates on a similar insight shared in the first Predator film by the Mexican girl Anna who says that the creature only appears "in the hottest years". However, Iwo Jima is in the North Pacific, and its climate is not particularly hot. In February and March of 1945 when the famous battle was fought, temperatures ranged from the low 70's in the daytime, to the upper 50's at night. See more »

WTF is wrong with people? Predator-1 had more Arnie than Predator. This movie simply has more Predator. It also greatly expanded the Predator universe and franchise. It introduced a whole new bunch of Pred weapons, tactics and behavior which never ever seemed out of place and were perfect fits. It explored their race further. All these were added to full effect in the AvP and AvP-2 PC games which were smash hits so imagine how horrible it would be if this movie never happened? The urban (steel jungle?) setting contrasts against the previous jungle setting and is a major plus for this movie. This movie was also extremely realistic and gory. All in all, this movie is fantastic and a few ignorant critics just want to bring it down by comparing it with the uniqueness of the original.
