So I am a massive predator fan and I had eagerly booked tickets weeks ago to see this movie opening night. I cannot explain how disappointing this film is. This films forgets what these movies are supposed to be about , there is no intensity or suspense it's all slap stick comedy and poor CGI. I get all the movies can't be alike and they had to go somewhere different but this is a train wreck. Worst of all ,it's likely there will be a sequel to this horror show.

If you're a huge predator fan like me, refrain from paying to see this movieand just wait until it goes on TV!

A film should not have more headshaking moments ( with how crap the movie is ) than actual enjoyable moments! To sum up, It's that bad it's worse than AVP2- literally.
