The world premiere of The Predator at Toronto International Film Festival wrapped up around an hour ago. And the early reactions have started to make their way onto Twitter. And it’s a very mixed bag.

THE PREDATOR feels as if left in a time capsule since the early 90s in the best possible way. Nasty, whip smart and the sort of violent that forces a muffled giggle. It’s a true Shane Black film.

#ThePredator is definitely a Shane Black film.

All the truly funny Keegan Michael Kay et al jokes can’t save the new #PREDATOR from just being a lazy excuse for a franchise reboot with the typically stupid villain that rides himself of everyone but his main foes easily. Yawn. #TIFF18

THE PREDATOR kicks all sorts of ass. DIRTY DOZEN meets MONSTER SQUAD. Killer jokes, excellent plotting, stellar gore. You are going to have a great time. #TIFF18

The Predator – A glossy mess that rushes through action beats to splatter CGI blood. I don’t get how Shane Black made this, it’s really nowhere near as good as it should be for a Shane Black movie. Maybe because it’s not set at Christmas? It’s barely even fun. Oh well. #TIFF18

THE PREDATOR: A lean, mean, brutal movie that somehow feels like bothva throwback and fresh. Great cast. Fantastic pacing. This is art?
