This time on The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast, Rem, Ian and Jonathan dig deeper into “Predator 2“. If you haven’t seen the original, watch it and listen first to our discussion of “Predator” from 1987.
Following the original movie, this new outing finds the Predator hunting drug gangs in 1997. Jonathan found this to be a stupid, but fun movie. Rem enjoyed the exploration of the Predator and really wanted to like the movie. Both Gary Busey and Bill Paxton were highlights. Everyone loved the reveal of the Predator Trophy case, showing us that the Predators and the Aliens have ‘history’ together.
Even with a great character (The Predator), the sequel fails to find its footing. We see a little more character development, but what we learned about the Predator wasn’t really worth the hour and change it takes to get there. The dialogue was poor, the characterization very cliche, and it didn’t take the story or character into any interesting new directions. It’s fun to watch, but does very little to develop the Predator mythology.
