In The Predator (2018, currently on HBO), a ragtag group of soldiers with some significant emotional issues, battle the legendary alien threat and their own government. Through a bewildering array of locales, the group uses their combat skills to stay one step ahead of their foes while attempting to acquire a mysterious gift from an erstwhile enemy and save a kid. The stakes: the future of the humanity itself.
The Predator isn’t a great movie. The plot is pretty threadbare, the performances are merely adequate, and it isn’t quite as funny as it would like to be. The special effects are solid, but largely unspectacular. Despite its flaws, however, it has enough action, gore, and humor to hold viewer’s attention throughout its 108 minute runtime. This isn’t a movie to put on the top of your watchlist and I’m not recommending it, but it’s just entertaining enough that seeing it isn’t the worst way to spend some free time if you’re bored.
I have no clue what I'm doing, but I'll keep doing whatever it is to the best of my ability.
