The Predator [Movie Review]

Happy Malaysia Day to all and may peace will always be with us all.

So what did you guys do during the long weekend? I attended a glorious wedding and watched The Predator afterwards with my friends. We were actually planning to watch Peppermint but due to the time constraint (the next Peppermint show was almost 5 hours away) so we agreed to watch The Predator.

SYNOPSIS
An alien ship crash-landed on earth, nearing a rescue mission location led by Capt. McKenna. A fight ensues between McKenna and the alien, in which Mckenna wins and incapacitates the Predator and takes off the armour from the Predator. He mails the armour to his home so that he will have an evidence, in case he ever gets capture later.

Meanwhile, Agent Traeger takes the bleeding Predator to his lab for experimentation and observation. He then recruits Dr Bracket to study the Predator. Before she gets to study the Predator, it wakes up and kills the entire lab, spares Dr Bracket and runs out of the facility. 

Meanwhile, Capt. McKenna was captured, questioned and bussed off to a prison before the bus was requested to make its way to another location, which happens to be the lab where experiments were being done to the Predator. Upon arrival at the facility, Capt. McKenna immediately recognizes the Predator that was fleeing the facility and with the assistance of the 'loonies' in the bus, they takes over the bus and tries to kill the Predator.

The Loonies that save the day (Earth)

I choose to play with the normal toys and not my smartphone
Failing to kill the Predator, they save Dr Bracket and heads over to McKenna's home, where he sends the armour to Capt. McKenna's autistic son, Rory, has opened the package and somehow has managed to operate the armour and uses it as his Halloween costume.

The Predator uses the tracking device on the armour to track down Rory.
The 'loonies' try their best to save the boy and everything was going quite well until a second and much larger Predator arrives and kills the first and much smaller Predator.

Do you guys think I should wear this for my next 'Best Dressed' event?
Why have the Predators been coming to Earth?
Why did they kill each other?

MY REVIEW 
Plot: 3.4/ 5.0. I am not an avid fan of the Predator series. But we all know the plot - they come, they try to conquer the Earth but some bad-a*s human manage to stop them in their track. But there is a twist in this one - you better be alert throughout the movie to learn their motives of keep on coming back to Earth.

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0. Everybody carries their part fairly well. I love how well Jacob Tremblay (Rory McKenna) plays the autistic child. The 'Loonies' as I love to call them, did justice to their parts too.

Will I watch it again: As am not an avid fan of the series, I will not watch it again in the cinema but I don't mind doing a marathon of the series at home. Hehe.

  9. same here. not a fan of predator movie but if suami pilih nak tengok so layankan aje. Gerun tengok rupa dia then ganas bunuh-bunuh. Sejenis jiwa cintakan cerita romantic + comedy sahaja.

    1. Betul la tu. I pun bagi rating rendah (4/5) utk plot. Actually script writing dia pun quite flimsy la.
