I really enjoyed this movie, even if it did suffer from "Sequel Syndrome." Upon first viewing, you will miss Schwarzenegger, but on retrospect, Danny Glover will really win your approval. More great performances all around. Glover, I've already bragged about. Busey is perfect as the slimy Fed, and, of course, Kevin Peter Hall returns in his second (and sadly, last) role as the Predator. The atmosphere is fitting, as I for one asked myself, "You know, how WOULD the Predator act in the urban jungle?" This movie does suffer from some cliches, but, to a degree, what movie doesn't? It dragged on at times and had more "violence for violence's sake" than the original, but I think the overall quality of this picture makes up for the flaws. The new toys that the Predator had were a nice touch, as was the inclusion of the other Predators. Some notable bits: the discus weapon, the showing of honor by the other Predators, and the subway scene. Was it as good as the original? No. Was it a good movie nonetheless? Absolutely.
