It makes sense that writer-director Shane Black would make a Predator film – he was one of the Rasta-alien’s first victims in the 1987 original.

Teaming up with co-writer Fred Dekker (Night of the Creeps), Black’s take on one of cinema’s coolest creatures plays like a parody of past Predator films, a homage to ’80s sci-fi actioners, and a fast-talking tough guy flick with bonus aliens. It also answers some of those questions fans have been pondering for the last 30 years: Why do the Predators make return visits to Earth? Why do they take trophies? And what’s with the dreadlocks? This time around the alien hunter is up against a busload of ex-military misfits, a female science teacher, a government agency committed to studying the creatures, and a bigger and deadlier upgraded Super Predator. Rowdy, ultraviolent and loaded with the rampant machismo and snappy dialogue that is Black’s forte (see also Lethal Weapon, The Last Boy Scout and The Nice Guys), The Predator hits the ground running and barely pauses for breath.
