The song that plays over the credits is Little Richard's "Long Tall Sally", which was listened to by the main characters of Predator (1987) on the helicopter before they're dropped into the jungle for their mission. See more »
When Royce runs to save Isabelle from the pit trap, he throws his shotgun to the side and dives the last several feet, which would put the gun behind him and out of reach. When he pulls her out of the pit, the shotgun is right beside him on the ground. See more »
It's clear they had a real long look at the original film and decided to keep the best pieces (the tension, the focus on group interaction, the music) but also try new things with it to attain the same feel of mystery the original was so good at.
The visuals are gorgeous, the acting solid, the writing exciting. And what I really love is the fact that there is very little use of CGI. What little there is, is convincing or subtle. Laurence Fishburn's appearance was a complete surprise to me and I loved his character. Though it reminded me a bit of Pandorum.
Like Sade said: "Never as good as the first time," but still a very well-crafted film.
