Predator 2Director: Stephen Hopkins
This special effects-heavy science fiction sequel moves the action from the first film's Amazon forest to the urban jungle of L.A. Danny Glover stars as Lt. Mike Harrigan, an LAPD detective baffled by his latest case, the ritualistic slaughter of several drug dealers by a devastating killer who leaves no traces. As Harrigan and his partners, Danny Archuletta (Ruben Blades), Leona Cantrell (Maria Conchita Alonso), and Jerry Lambert (Bill Paxton), try to figure out who or what killed the criminals, FBI investigator Stephen Keyes (Gary Busey) attempts to warn the team away from investigating further. When two of his team are killed in a particularly grisly way, Harrigan uncovers the truth -- their quarry is an alien creature that hunts humans for sport. Attracted to violence, its latest choice of prey is gun-toting Jamaican drug dealers. Keyes and his team know all about the nasty extraterrestrial and its bloody pastime because they've been studying it for ten years, and they've come up with a possible means of dispatching the beast. When that plan backfires, however, it comes down to Harrigan and an extremely irritated otherworldly foe, slugging it out in a rooftop confrontation.

This is a fine addition to an already amazing franchise. In it John and Jim Thomas expand on a creature they laid the groundwork for on the original Predator script. This film adds more weapons as well as a new set of armor for the main antagonist. I won't bother writing a review because all you need to know is to see this film and embrace it. At least it stays cannon and creates more rules to what the creature can and cannot do.
I thought this movie was pretty good. seeing those new weapons for the predator is awesome. This movie is worth watchin in my opinion. I can't wait to see the predators collide with aliens. But I don't understand how this movie lacks of creativity. I guess that must be me. I think this movie is a least worth a rent. But the first is still better.
The movie over all is great. The story and plot are a little sad, the Predator was really good. You get to see more weapons and a better way that It heals it self. You should watch it for the big battle cause it is a classic.
This film is far surpaced by the first blockbuster hit. It has great special effects but it lacks the creativity of the first flick. Some obscene scenes.
