Trivia

The middle school that Rory attends is called "Lawrence A. Gordon Middle School." Lawrence Gordon was the producer of the original movie, "Predator." See more »

Goofs

When Traeger enters the Hunter-Predator's ship, one shot shows a full moon in the sky. The moon on Halloween 2018 was in the Last Quarter phase. The Halloween moon was close to full in 2012, however the presence of a December 2016 magazine in the basement precludes that year. See more »

Quotes

Crazy Credits

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 »

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 »

Its like it was made for 12 year olds
23 February 2020 | by mckinleybrooksmortonSee all my reviews

Not a good film by any stretch. A lot of nonsensical action set pieces that are laughably implausible, strung together by a story that really diminished the groundwork set down in Predator. No one, despite massive amounts of money, seems capable of getting close to the trills, scares, and rich tone of the original film. Doesn't really feel like anyone is trying for more than dollar bills at the boxoffice.
