Trivia

DIRECTOR_TRADEMARK(Shane Black): [Disarming a gunman]: Quinn McKenna takes a gun out of Casey's hand while she holds him at gunpoint. Black's screenplays often feature such scenes, e.g. The Last Boy Scout (1991), The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996), and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005). See more »

Goofs

When Rory's "spectrum" skills are supposedly displayed after the fire alarm stops ringing, he replaces the chess pieces that were knocked off of three game boards when Derek and EJ leave the classroom. Just looking at the one game board Derek swiped, there were 7 white pieces and 4 black pieces. As Rory leaves, he has only replaced 4 of the 7 white pieces, and they and the black pieces are not in the same positions. For example, when Derek swiped the board, the Black King and Black Bishop were on diagonally-adjacent squares, but after Rory was done supposedly restoring the game board, they were on laterally-adjacent squares.

Haines: [on radio] Picket One, copy. Do you got eyes on hostages?
Quinn McKenna: Still negative.
Dupree: [on radio] 20 bucks says they don't show.
Quinn McKenna: You two morons really making bets on whether a drug cartel has executed hostages?
Dupree: Abso-fucking-lutely.
Haines: I believe that was implied.
Dupree: Just checking. I'm in for 20.

Fans of the original movie, please avoid this. Absolute trash!!
13 September 2018 | by rachit666See all my reviews

What a train wreck of a movie!! Absolute garbage. Dumbass story, crap actors, one stupid decision after another, really generic and bad background score. This was disrespectful of the predator franchise. Forget the first two movies (this isn't even on the same continent as far as quality is concerned), even the AVP series was better. And the jokes...OH MY GOD THE JOKES...totally forced and lameass.

Anyone with even a shred of attachment to the legit classic that the first Pred movie was, kindly save yourself the trauma and avoid this one.

Shane black - can you please not direct any movie again? Pretty please?
