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.Written by
According to Gary Busey in an interview, after the events of the first film Keyes and the C.I.A. had been conducting missions in the jungles, in which Dutch had been involved, but they had lost Dutch. This explains why Dutch (Schwarzenegger) didn't appear in the sequel. 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 »
The Australian Special Edition DVD released in 2005 is rated MA, but is uncut like the previous R rated version. It is not to be confused with the cut M rated version available on video. See more »
Underrated, interesting sequel to the Arnold Schwarzenegger hit has Danny Glover trading in his user friendly Roger persona to play a rougher, tougher, more kick ass cop who fears heights and goes one on one with a new Predator, who has some new tricks to share with the world when he lands in LA during a wave of both crime and heat.
Danny Glover may not be Schwarzenegger but he is quite good in his role as the cop.
The action is well mounted and the big difference of having the Predator in a city VS the jungle makes for some very interesting atmospheric moments and what not. There's also some SEX! Something that was sadly missing from the first film. The first film is better but this is still a worthy action film in its own right.
"Seems he has a taste for beef."
"I didn't think he was a vegetarian."
