A detective story in a large city would have been better.
I will say the predator plot makes predator's plot seem way better when you go back and watch it..

This script was more cringe inducing than the movie, though a little more coherent.

Either Fred Dekker just turns everything he touches to crap or Shane Black lost whatever talent he had in the eighties.

Shit, if we're pitching ideas for how the movie "should" have been, some of the elements of the script could be the foundation of a good film.

A Predator ship crashlands in an unlikely location for a Pred hunt. A naive wide eyed UFO chaser who thinks they're going to meet up with E.T. gets mixed up with the shell shocked survivor of a Predator looking for revenge, while the military also tries to capture the Predator. Keep the themes of from the first three movies, but flip the script because now the Predator is the one being hunted and its more dangerous than any before because now there are no rules. The gloves are off.

But no we got Monster Squad by way of MCU crap.

How about making some prequels...
predators vs Samurais for example

It's been a month since I've been here, and I don't know whether to be surprised or not Huggs is still claiming the fans aren't toxic.

I don’t know man, looking at the script there were a few snippets that could have improved the movie somewhat, though I preferred having Sean Keyes as the scientist.
All said, this script runs more like a fan fic than anything else.

Damn shame, I can see what seller was trying to do, misguided as it is in hindsight but I’m buggered if I know what the hell Black was thinking, both this script and the final film are rampantly out of control :(
