Character development.

These basically aren't written as the kinds of films where you can do that. Sad endings are a tougher sell and your average movie goer wants a clean-cut ending. Unless they ever commit to Predator being a horror movie, we're not getting a film where it wins. And otherwise it's only because it's a prequel and chronologically it has to survive into the film where it dies or at minimum appears. Hollywood kind of expects the villain to get comeuppance. Writers don't really write things like that and the audience expects the hero to come out on top.

It's kind of a hard thing to write. You typically hate the villain, so seeing them get off is kind of boner kill. It's something that has to be written with enough care that your audience is gonna be cool with that and these films, Alien, Predator, or Terminator are not the things where you're able to take those risks without being damn sure. And they've gone wrong when Alien and Terminator pulled those stunts, we really shouldn't expect them to do that here.

Exactly.  If they ever did, I'd imagine it would have to be with a Predator characterization that we can somewhat empathize with - say, something along the lines of Ahab from the comics, or Kalakta from the novels, but not a character that goes throughout the whole movie silently mowing down its opponents.  That's not to say it wouldn't be interesting to see a Predator survive one of these days, but I wouldn't go out of my way to root for what's intended to be the villain.  Sure, it's not realistic to expect the hero to always win, but I think it would be pretty hard to make it work with the characterizations we've had thus far.

You're exactly right and besides who is looking for realism in a Sci-Fi creature movie?

Kinda hard to make out, but I'm definitely getting strong Predator(s) vibes from this, from story beats to how the feral Predator looks. The basic mold and structure of the original Predator really shouldn't need to be altered that much, particularly with the mouth and mandibles, but they continue to do so.
Honestly, it's an awful film, but the Wolf Predator from AVPR is still one of my favorite Predator designs, from the head and face, and even the body and the armor, and I feel is the best looking Predator we've gotten since P2.  It's distinctive enough from the original to feel different, but still maintains the basic idea of what it should look like.

I think besides P1 and 2, Wolf is also my favorite for now.

i wonder ifvit could be possible to have it from thevpredators point of view. The predator scenes in avpr were pretty good and would have worked great as a short film or part of an anthology or something.

Oh, that would be a hard one for me. Need to think about it.

This one really sums up how they portray Naru in this film. It's none of this "screw the man" approach to her motivation that people are crying about with the "wokenness".
Spoiler
She's good at medicines, it's what they think she should be doing, but it's not what she feels drawn to.
