"If It Bleeds We Can Kill It: The Making of 'Predator'" is a very interesting documentary.
1 March 2003 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

"If It Bleeds We Can Kill It: The Making of 'Predator'" is a very interesting documentary.

I saw it on AMC a while back (I hope I'm commenting on the right thing, at least!), and it was very informative and engaging.

The short documentary interviews actors from the film such as Jesse Ventura and Bill Duke, as well as director John McTiernan.

It tells us of what the cast had to endure to bring us such a great film; and let me tell you, they had to endure a lot.

I definitely recommend this little short "making-of" to you. It's very good; one of the best behind-the-scenes I've ever...well...seen :).

4.5/5 stars -

John Ulmer
