And people are allowed to like this. No one gets to insult those who do.

No insult was implied to anyone Hicks.

It didn't help that the directing and cinematography was... bad and TV-like.

There was a few good directing moments though, along with a few really cool ideas

For as bad as it looked, I will always be a fan of the blood revealing the Predator's face idea.

It's such a great idea on so many levels.

It doesn't just in "literal" terms reveal Fugitive's face, it also reveals his nature he "literally" bathes in human blood.

Which could've been so more effective in a better film.
Perhaps if we gave a shit about who's blood it was.

It's kind of shocking that this was the script so many people were using to defend The Predator pre release. It's bad, really bad. And man is either Fred Dekker or Shane Black (probably both) really impressed with their own writing.

What an embarrassing piece of trash. For everyone involved, including its defenders.

I wish i could "like" this comment. But there was people defending this? Really? I though the consensus was that the movie was awful right from the script.

Yep.

He took (any) criticism of the movie as a personal attack. Unless you 100% worshipped it, he became militant about the issue. He said he was going to screen write for a movie and that was the last I heard from him before a public meltdown about me posting the article where Decker called fans toxic (without specifying there were ones who weren't). He went absolutely Nuclear.

That's essentially the formula that he did.

I can see it.

(Would have preferred a movie with a Long Kiss Goodnight feel over a Nice Guys feel, but that's just me...)
