Storyline

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.

Crazy Credits

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 »

Alternate Versions

The CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) in India had already cut the film to achieve an 'A' (restricted to adults) certificate for cinema and video viewing, but for TV viewings for a 'U/A' (unrestricted public exhibition - but with parental guidance) rating.
  • It was cut further to remove visuals of vulgar movements and showing of the finger.
  • Catching below the hip.
  • A man killed.
  • Bodies hanging including blood stains and the oozing of blood.
  • Cutting head.
  • Teasing lady.

A worthy sequel to the original Predator movie.
4 October 2018 | by undeaddtSee all my reviews

To be honest, I maybe like this movie even more than the first Predator and there are plenty reasons why. The most important reason is that we get to see more screentime with the Predator in his original form, his weapons are upgraded, his kills are getting even better, we see a transition from the jungle to the city which is an amazing job from the director, we see a better character development, a pretty cool fight in the end between the main characters, a beautiful looking alien ship and a cool Alien reference. So even tho there were bunch of issues with the movie, it still is a worthy sequel to the first original movie.
