    Saw the movie this evening. Wow. One of worst movies I've ever seen,  if not the worst. Wanted to get up and leave halfway through.  What a shame, just leaves sour taste after ground-breaking original and excellent Predators.  Similar to how Covenant burried Alien franchise last year

    Pitty

    Yeah, the kid was a plot device and Munn (what was her name character again? besides "sunshine") was a Mary Sue that just could do everything. And Busey character had no reason to be there. I could make a long list of flaws but it is pointless.

    Busey was used to reference some connection with the past movies, sadly it didn't make any difference due to how short it was, they should have made him take Traeger place or something.

    Olivia munn was a pointless character probably the worst written one to boot. She went from being a science teacher to a real biologist scientist to a gung ho athletic mercenary and apparently teleports lmao. This movie is a weird mess it's bad from a technical and structure built movie. The plots get tangled worse than a game of twister and replaced with different pieces of this film. The fugitive has a huge ass Dopey looking head and looks dumb with its mouth open 24/7. You can tell it had a different role but patched it out to be bringing a gift but kills anyone on sight. It's a 50/50 split tbh. You can like it if you throw logic and common sense out the window. But as a predator film it's a joke literally it's so bad It's funny like the room lol. They shot themselves on the foot pushing the upgrade predator to be the baddest and the strongest only to die cause a mentally ill boy who can read a alien language right and help kill it and olivia going commando on it lmao. Seriously??? You tell people are in denial that it's a bad movie cause it is. but the shit so stupid it's funny I imagine this can pass as a waynes brother movie. And don't get me started on the dogs and the retcon on the cloaking that was straight trash. Honestly fox should of let this movie come out as it was originally and shane black should never bother with predator again cause this movie was worse than your pussy jokes. Lol it's a mindless butchered action comedy with predators in it lol. Oh and The iron pred suit with 8 lasers was whack too.

    I for one completely loathe Ironman 3. So I am willing to give Fox Studios the benefit of the doubt. Even had they stayed entirely hands-off during the entire film making, this would have still turned into a complete Shane Black style Movie with a Predator. With even more terrible decisions, had they stuck to the original 3rd act. In my opinion, there was no salvaging this Movie, when the problems with it started in the inception stages.

    Why people complaint mostly about the studio when cheesy and forced jokes are Shane's department (I hate Kiss Kiss Bang Bang humour). Did studio interfere into silly dialogues (again, jokes) and lack of characters' development? I doubt. Also studio gave Shane extra money for re shoots. I don't get why fans whinge about studio if everyone knows they can be incompetent as f**k. They green-lit AvP movies. That tells you everything about state of their minds. Sure, they interfere (Alien: Covenant) but it's also Shane's fault why this movie is so poorly received.

    This guy made some good points. If you're gonna hire Shane Black, you gotta let him do his thing. I think this movie really suffered from studio meddling.

    No doubt about it, Fox basically did an Alien 3 again.

    Maybe if Disney decide to carry on the Alien and Predator franchises, they might do a better job because it would be hard to treat worse than what Fox have.

    as long lucasfilm stays out of it. :D

    Jar Jar vs Predator, you know you want to see it. :D

    i woulden't say munns character was pointless i would give that title to keys son instead he had nothing to do at all.
    Wasted potential indeed.

    The funny thing is, for such a small role that he had, I really enjoyed what I saw. There was something about his jovial enthusiasm that just made me smile. I don’t think he died, right?

    I really liked Busy in this, too. It was cool how they made him seem chill and pretty grounded, basically opposite of Keyes in P2. He definitely didn't die.

    Good to know  :) I wouldn’t mind seeing his character repurposed in some way.

    He definitely should be in the sequel if there is one.

    If this is it though, it should have been him in that ending scene with the suit or they should have at least cut him in half like his dad, when Fugitives escapes from Stargazer.

    I think that after the reception of the dna idea, shane  black tought, what a mess i done... Then they reshooted all, and its like trying to repare something you painted and ended worse,  and he went to the "its a clan doing that", its a clan who is angry with earth and all those lies that are not in the movie..

    TFA was too safe, but competent and featured charismatic characters and the sequel was expected to expand upon them, the timeframe, world, flesh out the nuances and the conflict. TLJ failed to do that, or anything unique that had not been done in a superior manner elsewhere.

    TFA is actively made worse by how TLJ handled the new era and it's characters.

    The "it's different so it's good" argument doesn't wash with me, I've seen more than several divisive films that were good or outright masterpieces.
    TLJ doesn't even make it to mediocre.
  15. Yautja_Warrior
    After people complained about TFA being too safe and a copy of ANH, I guess they wanted to shake it up and go in unexpected directions. Part of the reason I liked it really.

    Rey not being related to old characters (unless they alter that in the next one, but that would be cliché, so hopefully that sticks) Leia using The Force, Snoke dying out of nowhere, Kylo and Rey vs the Praetorian Guards, so awesome and then Luke trolling kylo at the end was genius.
