200 years after her death, Ellen Ripley is revived as a powerful human/alien hybrid clone who must continue her battle against the aliens. Along with a crew of space pirates, Ripley must also prevent the deadly aliens from reaching Earth.
A cybernetic warrior from a post-apocalyptic future travels back in time to protect a 25-year old drifter and his future wife from a most advanced robotic assassin and to ensure they both survive a nuclear attack.
LAPD lieutenant Mike Harrigan (Danny Glover) and his cocky detective partner Jerry Lambert (Bill Paxton) soon realize that what seemed a bloody feud between voodoo high priest King Willie's (Calvin Lockhart) Jamaican gangs and Ramon Vega's (Corey Rand) Colombian drug gang is actually the work of a scary third party. Peter Keyes's (Gary Busey) federal team shields the crime scene even for the LAPD, but after forensics proves it must be an alien, who keeps making victims, the chase brings them all together.

In the funeral scene, the Predator encounters a boy with toy UZI 9MM. The Predator doesn't kill the boy because the toy UZI 9MM isn't a real weapon and lets him live. In real life, 23 years after the film's release, A sheriff's deputy in Santa Rosa, California shot and killed a 13 year old boy walking down a street with a replica of a AK-47, which the deputy thought it was the real thing and feared for his own life. If the toy UZI 9MM hadn't been a toy and had been a real UZI 9MM, the Predator could had killed the boy. See more »
During the opening credits, a radio voice is heard saying the temperature is 109°. As the camera moves in on the city, the buildings are shown dark and a few windows are red, indicating they're significantly hotter than 109. As it moves to the scene of the gun battle, human figures are also shown in red. But even when active, a human's core body temperature remains around 99°, and skin temperature is a few degrees lower. So with the air, ground, & buildings at 109, the humans should have appeared as dark silhouettes. See more »

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 »
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.
