Simply one of the best movies ever made
Predator is a great movie, here is why.
Characters - They are very lovable. I enjoyed the cheesiness, the one liners, and over the top action from them, it just fit with the movie. You felt sad for Mac when Blain died, scared when Hawkins died, you feared for the characters as they went through the jungle, hoping they weren't about to get attacked. McTiernan did an excellent job making these characters who they are.
Setting - The jungle is perfect as the predator's playground, bar none.
Acting - The acting in this movie is fine, I don't know why people have anything against it.
Special effects - Oh my god, the cloak is one of the finest effects I have seen in my life. The way it fits into the jungle is just perfect. Cloak, uncloaking, the whole nine yards.
Score - Haha this is a pretty awesome score, it fits with the movie. Suspense, acting, sadness, horror, etc.
The actual predator - A space alien that uses various weapons and comes to earth to hunt worthy prey. Need I say more? This creature is a BADASS, I even think it rivals the alien as best sci-fi creature ever created.
In conclusion, predator is one of the best movies to ever be made. More film makers should watch this as a documentary on how to make a film.
May be some spoilers so do not read if you haven't seen it yet.
Personally, I thought this was a good movie when I first saw it. Much better than what Paul Anderson put out. I'd like to point out what I liked about the film.
The predator, this was probably the best part about the movie. He was put back to where he should be, the same league as the first and second predator. Lots of new equipment to look at and lots of life he was about to take away from those aliens. Also for me, he was probably the most interesting character.
The directing/directors, this is highly debated by a number of people. But they forget that the lighting and writing is not their fault. It was their visual concept and I think they did pretty well for first time directors.
The predalien, another highly debated subject. Some just call it an atrocious predator that produces aliens. But personally, besides for the dreadlocks, I thought it was awesome. Looked cool, did it's job as a young queen, and entertained me whenever it showed up on film.
The characters, somewhat believable characters in a small town. The acting for each characters was adequate.
But now I have to discuss what I didn't like about the film.
The aliens, I mean come on. They barely hurt the predator in this film except for the power plant and the predalien. Believe me when I say this, I am a much bigger Predator fan than Alien fan. But aliens can't be this badly downgraded. I can believe "Aliens". Highly trained marines, future guns, etc. but the one predator killed about 20 aliens without breaking a sweat. I wanted the predator to be good, but not godly. Hopefully the next film, they have 5-6 predators and 20 aliens for a "ritual". Just not like the first AVP.
The lightning, pretty self explanatory, it was too dark. I can't blame this on the directors, but it was a bit annoying not seeing some of the action.
The film's time. I mean only 80 minutes? Come on, give the story some more time to mature and make the characters more interesting.
The script, simply put, GET RID OF SHANE SALERNO.
In conclusion, I enjoyed this movie a lot. So I hope we just get the same directors, a different setting, time line, and a different writer.
