Just like with The Predator, I haven't read anything (script, spoilers, just some official articles) about Predators before watching the movie. I have to say, that it was empasized that those hunters there are superb to the former version of the creature.
Noland said the larger ones hunt the smaller ones, when talking about the feud. Berserker beheaded Classic, which is quite a symbolic move, as I see.
But overall the performed much weaker against humans as the former hunters, also terrain known to them. So that was a shame to the whole concept. In light of that I'm interested how the upgrade will stand its ground in The Predator.
