The suit looks ok. Granted I was hoping a bit more other than oversized plasma cannons and super large wristblades but I didn't mind the overall concept. Just help further the fact that Predators are highly advanced and didn't stagnate on their technology. Those multiple laser sightings with only two plasma cannons look stupid though, its like having multiple laser sights on one rifle.

I do fully expect the suit to be included somehow in a Iron Man crossover when Marvel starts publishing Predator comics. Don't know about the thought of it honestly but at this point, eh, The Predator already did high damage to the series so.....

Thank the Predator Gods that Predator Hunting Grounds was already set in motion! The damage has been greatly minimized thanks to partially that game, and The Predator itself being so light and subsequently forgettable. :)

It is just the matter of how it will address the questions that The Predator added; What happened to the suit? What happened to Quinn and his son? What has become of the body of the Upgrade and Fugitive? What is the motive of the hostile bad blood clan that sent out Upgrade to hunt down Fugitive and Quinn's son and will they try again? Is there really going to be some kind of war or just error in logistics/research done by Stargazer, as Dutch commented on their inexperience of the Predator's race and motives?

I feel like at least these are interesting enough for it to be explored more in the future and I hope Hunting Grounds will cover at least some of this.

f**k that, ignore everything "The Predator" did, ignore "Predators" and let's go forward with one of the many anthologies they could make to bring the series back, a bit gimmicky but like Pirates, Civil War, Vikings, Sparta (my idea), or Japan, maybe even the future

Let's let the final Alien Prequel come out and pray that it brings that franchise back from the dirt as well, then... move forward with AVP, but don't f**k it up this time  :-\

I'm more likely to agree with you on The Predator than Predators. Predators wasn't a perfect film but it didn't go against established lore in a negative way. Exiled bad bloods that defies the Honor code that kidnaps prey and takes them to a private game preserve planet for their own version of a hunt? Just wasn't the best written film.

Everything about the way Rory was written brought the movie down.
I understand that Shane Black likes to contrast the innocence of kids with super violent situations but the whole "being on the spectrum is an evolutionary advantage" thing was laughable.

That said: Liked the cast and a fair bunch of the characters. Some jokes landed. Appreciated how the movie was fairly violent but found it weird how little of the violence actually felt impactful (definitely due to the overrelliance on cgi blood).

Lots of dodgy directorial choices with some properly bad shot composition and boring cinematography. Soundtrack seemed to have been done ridiculously fast and brings nothing memorable.

Not against the concept of an "action comedy" take on this series... but this was just too much of an incoherent mess of a story.

(Predator Killer suit being hastily done cgi didn't do the whole concept any favors.... that soon-to-be-released statue looks great, though.)
