During an archaeological expedition on Bouvetøya Island in Antarctica, a team of archaeologists and other scientists find themselves caught up in a battle between the two legends. Soon, the team realize that only one species can win.
From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home. Now, the universe's most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.Written by

When the Predator grabs its mask from the display case, the original Predator mask from the 1987 movie is briefly seen right next to it. See more »
When Nettles (the helicopter pilot) is introduced it specifically stated that he "flew Hueys for three tours over there." This would be more than a little difficult as the UH-1 "Huey" helicopter was removed from flight service by the US Army in 1984 when it was replaced by the UH-60 Blackhawk.
While some National Guard units continued to fly the Huey for many years, by the time of the Third Gulf War, Hueys were no longer used in front line engagements. There would be no way that Nettles would flown for three tours, or any at all in time for him to have returned to the US as a burned out pilot. See more »
Picket One, copy. Do you got eyes on hostages?
20 bucks says they don't show.
You two morons really making bets on whether a drug cartel has executed hostages?
I believe that was implied.
Just checking. I'm in for 20.

In the trailers, the 20th Century Fox logo appears through the Predator's thermal vision. The movie itself sticks with the usual Fanfare intro with no Predator embellishments. See more »
I guess the main question is why. Why did they make this sequel? Why was the story so bad? Why were the characters so bad? Why did they take a classic movie and dump on it? More importantly, why did I watch it?
Everyone believes they need to put a new spin on things as though movies need an upgrade. Shame on you Shane Black. Yeah, you added more flash, more bang, more action, more everything but it lacked other more important things: quality, character, uniqueness.
They tried to incorporate too many characters, too many fields of expertise, and too many variations of the original. It just ended up being a dismemberment orgy of red and green blood with tons of one-liners, quips, and inept government henchmen. It was terrible.
In an attempt to be bigger, badder, better it came off as a cheap cash grab trying to profit off of the sacred name of a legend. I watched. I didn't pay but I watched. I knew better but I thought just maybe... A guy can wish can't he?
