Here's the thing: The Predator is a hilarious movie and it works as a comedy. If you like Predator lore and aesthetics, this movie is going to piss you off. It's practically a parody. That's why this movie frustrates the hell out of me. It ruined the franchise, but it's still very watchable. Very odd movie. Black, Dekker, and FOX must have been high. I get what they were going for, but there is no way it was going to work as a serious event film. It's almost as funny as Deadpool in certain spots, and it's as action packed as the avg Marvel movie, but casual Marvel movie fans aren't going to be interested in aliens that tear out spines and hunt autistic children in the name of climate change. Predator and Alien fans were NOT the target audience, that's for damn sure. As bad as people diss on AVP:R, it at least was made for the fanbase. It sucked, but it was definitely for the fans.
