The first cut of the film submitted to the MPAA was given an NC-17 rating, and it was supposedly cut quite a bit to get it down to R.

Willy's death doesn't need to be extended. The editing works brilliantly as it is. To have some more violent version where you actually see them fight would completely ruin the effect.

I really doubt that's one of the scenes they cut.

Agreed. It’s basically the Billy death, but with smoother editing and a better pay off. Great scene.

I honestly really like Predator 2. It's not as good as the first but it was still a fun movie with some pretty great kill scenes.

I always adored the gang war torn L.A, the heatwave scarring the city, everybody's sweaty and nervous, this movie has a "hysterical/stressful" atmosphere that work wonders IMO. It was perfect for a predator movie, and even though technically speaking the movie wasn't perfect at all, it still had some great directed scenes and excellent stuff added to the myhtology.

L.A. gang wars in the 90's was an awesome setting for P2.  I can relate to the era of P2 better than P1, so maybe that is the primary reason but P2 is still my favorite.

The mystery from P1 was really opened up with P2, from behavior to diet and hunting patterns.  Not just a gore fest, it was interesting to learn about the mysterious creature from the first film.

Exactly, we learned more of predator culture but without seeing too much either, just enough to tease us in the best way possible. And City Hunter was a f**king beast ! Reckless as f**k (probably too much lol) but a beast nonetheless !

I remember hearing that City Hunter was intended to be a younger somewhat more inexperienced hunter, hence why he was more reckless. But I dunno if someone just made that up.

I've actually heard it go both ways. I've always preferred the idea that CH was a younger Predator. Just because of how eager he is to engage larger groups. He's a lot more show-y and cocksure of himself.

Kevin Peter Hall described him as a bad blood who doesn't hunt by the rules.

I heard there were some small cuts, I would pay good money for a uncut Predator 2. We should petition Fox to do it. I bet it would sell vary good on blu ray.

I'm pretty sure there's already a petition for it on the web somewhere.

I doubt there's enough general interest in the second film for it to ever happen though.
