The pool with the overhanging rock where the group ends up after the jump from the cliff was found in Texas during location scouting. However, when the scene was shot months later, the temperature had dropped considerably, and water had started to flow from the rock. Not only did the actors have to be submerged in freezing cold water, the noise from the waterfall made the recording of usable dialogue impossible. See more »
Right at the start of the film, Royce drops through the forest canopy after detaching from his parachute, however the next overhead shot shows his parachute lying a few feet away on the ground - this seems unlikely as the parachute would have tangled in the branches above. See more »
Loved every minute of this movie. Was it Oscar material? NO! However, it was entertaining and fun to watch from start to finish. The characters are pretty thin and not much story develops outside of just staying alive. Royce is the "cool" guy in the squad and all the best lines come from him. Although the Topher Grace and the "death row" inmate have some classic lines also. I just want to add how nice it was to see the Predators doing what they to best again. No more Alien hunting. This is a true follow-up to the original and everything is kept very simple. Shoot a lot of bullets, miss every time and get killed in a horrible way. Perfect!
