predator 1 is an epic mysterious thriller, lots of suspense and full of memorable characters and lines. The reveal of the predator is one of the greatest scenes in cinematic history. I was hooked when I saw the film as a kid but also a bit puzzled by the lack of action, I definitely was a bit scared as well. Arnold’s battle roar is goosebumps worthy, bring it on! The whole final act is brimming with suspense build up and wonder.
Predator 2 is completely different but equally fun. This is action packed with another colorful set of characters. The final act is action packed and spectacular. It is also a lot more gory than the first one. The only disappointing scene is the train scene which is way too dark. Loved the setting, a second jungle setting could never have equalled the first film, this one does in a different way.
The rest of the franchise? Dog poo
