Trivia

Goofs

When Nebraska introduces Lynch, he states he got a medal for "blowing up half of a mountain in Mosul." There are no mountains in Mosul, Iraq. Military veterans that were deployed to northern Iraq, specifically the city of Mosul, would know this. The closest mountainous terrain is over 60 kilometers to the north, beyond the town of Alqosh and village of Bozan. See more »

Alternate Versions

The Chinese version is heavily censored, and runs about 2 minutes shorter than the US version. It removes nearly all violence and gore, sometimes digitally erasing blood from existing scenes. In addition, nearly all profanity and sexual innuendo is either removed or alternate dialogue is used. See more »

Personal feelings aside.
25 December 2018 | by SNS_JinSee all my reviews

I went into this movie trying my best to stay objective and take it for what it was. And I enjoyed it as a sci fi action movie, it wasn't bad. No where near as bad as some of the more fanatical fans seem to think it was here.

Acting was good, screenplay was good, pacing was good. Story was actually not that bad neither. Unless someone wanted to try and challenge the original in terms of plot, there's not many options that works, this kinda did work.

If you ignore the more crazy fans that like to bash on anything that's not on par with their own opinions, you'll enjoy this film.

People don't seem to understand that rating 5 out of 10 is "watchable but not for me." ratings. Yet there's individuals out there that give perfectly alright movies 2 and 3 stars just because they can't give objective opinions even if their lives depended on it.

But I digress.

The movie was a excellent action movie, a great sci fi movie and a questionable Predator movie. So how should we base the rating then?

7/10 action movie. 7/10 sci fi movie. 5/10 Predator movie.

Final verdict = 6/10
