Quote from: SiL on Dec 11, 2013, 06:32:16 AMPerry made Predators honourable space samurai not by portraying each one that way, but by making the ones who don't out to be dicks (even by Predator standards).
QuoteBroken Tusk is the protagonist, he's presented as the ideal Predator in the story, not them.
QuoteThe audience is left seeing him as how a Predator ought to act because he's the freaking good guy.
Quote from: happypred on Dec 11, 2013, 10:35:54 AMThen we're not really disagreeingYou can't blame Perry if readers misinterpret his work. By "turn the predators into space samurai", I mean "potray the predators as a race of fair, noble, honourable space samurai". Steve Perry didn't do that. What Steve Perry did was write a novel susceptible to misinterpretation. Similarly, Cameron's Aliens is susceptible to misinterpretation. The aliens aren't mindless cannon fodder. They might not be as smart as intelligent human beings but they show above-animal intelligence on several occasions (cutting the power, crawling through the ventilation shafts). It's highly debatable whether Kane's son is smarter than the xenomorphs in Aliens.
