Violence & Gore

  • The Predator kills are brutalized, a bit gorier than the first few.
  • A large, hairless creature with spikes on its front charges through the jungle toward the group. Many of them open fire on it, eventually hitting the beast that explodes in a bloody/gory mess. One shoots one one that's chasing a man, while one lands on one who repeatedly stabs it in the neck (with bloody results on it and him) before one knocks it off and shoots it (with a bloody burst), and another such creature is shot. We then see one such creature and its severed head beside it.
  • A man is hit in the back by an electric shot fired by an alien creature, he falls over (we see his singed back, and his ribs visible and blackened) and that man leaps onto the back of the creature and begins to stab at its neck; the man falls on the ground helpless and chanting for the predator to kill him. The creature throws the man off its back and pulls/rips out the bloody, quivering spine and skull of the first man (Goriest scenes in the movie).
  • Two predators fight, they wrestle and tackle resulting in sparks and wrestling. A predator runs away while the other predator fires missiles sending explosions in its surroundings. One predator hides beneath a log and the other predator investigates. The predator was actually invisible and comes by the side to strike him. He then takes off his mask revealing his mandibles then slices his head off and we see green oozing blood stump.
  • A man shoves a scalpel through the chin and into the head of another man, blood pours from the wound on his neck and bubbles out of his mouth, and the man then drags the dying man and places him facedown on the ground; the dying man is approached by an alien creature that inserts a knife into his back.
  • A man is hit in the back by an electric shot fired by an alien creature, he falls over (we see his singed back, and his ribs visible and blackened) and that man leaps onto the back of the creature and begins to stab at its neck; the creature throws the man off its back and pulls out the bloody, quivering spine of the first man.
  • A man comes face-to-face with a large creature, the creature holds an electric gun to the man's head, and a laser beam is seen on the man's face and moments later the man explodes in a bloody mess with a Plasma Castsr (Shoulder laser/plasma gun)
  • An alien creature is surrounded by a circle of fire as a man attacks it, hitting it in the head and neck with a large object: the creature shoves the man against a tree and using electric power shocks him, dropping him to the ground, then the creature grabs the man's neck, hoists him above the ground, a woman fires a rifle at the creature, wounding it (green ooze comes from the creature's chest) and the man begins to pummel the creature's head, chops off its arm (green ooze pours from the wound) and the creature throws a knife at the woman, impaling her arm; the man then chops off the head of the creature (green ooze pours from the neck and head of the creature).
  • A man waits for a predator, sword drawn, while the predator ejects long blades from its wrist. The two then battle, blades clanging and barely missing each other as the man makes repeated passes and thrusts at the being (that throws him aside). After another such pass, the predator falls to the ground dead, but then so does the man.
  • The body of a man is found with his chest ripped open; bloodied and rotten innards are visible, his face is covered in blood and another man remarks that the man had been dead for approximately two weeks based on decomposition.
  • The group hears cries for help, slowly make their way into an opening, and find one of their members on his knees, facing away from them. Thinking its a trap realizing they can't help him, the group leaves, with the woman firing a mercy kill shot that downs the man. But the woman then hears the continued cries for help and realizes it wasn't that man.
  • A man races through the forest chased by a large creature: a woman fires a shot from a distance, the creature falls to the ground and the woman and a group of men investigate and we see its bloody guts and torn flesh.
  • A man's foot is caught in a bear trap, he screams in pain and when he stands up a crunching sound is heard and he has to be propped up by a woman; a second man remarks that the injured man is being used as bait and he should be left to die.
  • A man and woman are caught on a net by an alien creature and are dragged to a pit. The man uses a scalpel from a sample of a poisonous plant he used in the beginning of the film to make a small cut on a woman's neck, the woman screams and her vision blurs as the man explains that he has poisoned her with a neurotoxin which will paralyze her (the woman becomes paralyzed but later recovers).
  • A man walks through an encampment where non-human, bloodied corpses are seen hanging from trees; the man cuts the chains that are holding a creature against a statue, the creature falls to the ground, quickly stands up and grabs the man's neck, but lets him go moments later.
  • Two men wrestle on the ground, each one switches places from top to bottom, punching and violently striking one another in the head and chest while shouting threats; they are interrupted by a group of people and the fight stops.
  • A man stabs a scalpel through the chin of another man, lots of blood pours from his neck and bubbles out of his mouth, and the man then drags the dying man and places him facedown on the ground; the dying man is approached by a Predator that inserts a knife into his back he lies on his stomach is turned over and he is stabbed by the predator, we see his chest covered in grenades; they explode and an alien creature is thrown back.
  • At an alien planet, a group of people finds the predators' hunting camp, completed with human skulls, a strung-up and skinned body and related gory/bloody remains.
  • A man slowly approaches a partially covered cage, gun drawn, and reaches out for the material covering it. He then yanks that away, only to reveal an empty cage (albeit with large insects crawling around parts of a corpse).
  • A man lights a fire under an area where a group of men and a woman are resting; the smoke causes one of the men to vomit (we hear the sound of retching and see the vomit coming out of his mouth), one of the men fires a flare gun at the man who set the fire and the people struggle to escape the smoky room, and eventually find their way out.
  • Guns of various sizes are pulled on people throughout the movie without being shot, including a woman holding up an assault riffle to three men.
  • A man presses a shiv against the neck of another man who was eager to kill him, the man holds his gun to the attacker's neck and says that he is ready to die, a third man points a gun at the two men, and an alien creature holds a gun to the neck of one man, but then lowers it.
  • A man trips over a branch and a large log flies through the air, knocking another man over; moments later spikes fall from the sky and a group of people scatter to avoid being hit, one man is almost smashed by a large gate that springs from the ground covered in spikes, and a woman runs over a camouflaged hole in the ground that is filled with spikes, grabs the wall of the pit and is dragged out of the hole to safety.
  • A group of men and a woman fire their guns as they run through a forested area, and they come to a large cliff and they jump off and swim through a small lake to safety.
  • A man shows another man his hand with two missing fingers
  • A man shoots a predator, with a little green blood from the latter, but it blasts him backwards. As he tries to crawl away, the predator impales and lifts him off the floor, but the man sets off an explosive that kills himself and the predator. The resultant fireball blast then races toward the others who barely get out of the way.


  • 38 "f" words (5 used with "mother"), 18 "s" words, 1 slang term for breasts ("t*ts"), 3 asses (1 used with "hole"), 3 damns, 3 hells, 3 uses of "G-damn" and 1 use of "God."
  • 'Shit' is said at least 20 times.
  • 'Bitch' is said four times.
  • Misogynistic slurs/swearwords are used few times.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A man remarks that he thinks he is on drugs and another man dismisses it saying it would have side effects.
  • A man says that he wants to do cocaine.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The many strange alien creatures are disturbing.
  • The constant violence and killings throughout the film are meant to be frightening.
  • The main characters are hunted and chased throughout most of the film, their lives in danger.
  • Some deaths are Very gory and there is a visual style to the film, the onscreen meat and bones are seen as well as slicing and dicing
  • Topher Grace's twist is very unexpected
  • The sight of the predators (crab-like faces with large mandibles, as well as one's skull-like helmet complete with sharp teeth, etc.) might be unsettling and/or scary to some viewers.
  • This movie is about a group of humans unexpectedly land on an unknown alien planet to be hunted and slaughtered by vicious alien creatures.
  • The scene where the Predator rips a character's spine off with his bare hands is probably the most brutal kill in the Predators franchise as we could see the blood dripping down his skull and a glimpse of the remains.
  • This is a horror movie about survival in the jungle
  • Some of the characters are serial killers or rapists.
  • The atmosphere of the movie is eerie and intense
  • An action/horror movie, some scenes are scary (being chased by the Predators) and intense (a man sword-fights a Predator). Very fast paced.
