To "PsyKor" what a great analogy! "The Predator" is totally the Robocop 3 of the predator franchise. Bigger action, no brains, new cast, removal of what made the original great while doing a half-hearted tone-deaf retread of some ideas while completely abandoning others. THIS movie is tragically bad and it breaks my heart that so many amazing creature people worked on it. It's sad how good creature work can essentially be tarnished by bad movies and vice versa.

Fugitive is great predator's design. One day you'll admit it!

The premise of The Predator was weak. Predators are about challenge and adversity in the Hunt and the overwhelming danger a single one presents to human beings. The only purpose of a super predator was to amplify the sense of danger. Yet, in the end, the super predator was eliminated handily. This mocked the idea of genetic enhancement, which itself has been done before. Plus, Olivia Munn was badly miscast and executed by script writers and actress alike. She behaved like a Navy Seal who happened to have a genetics degree and was, like the clown scientists in Alien: Covenant, quite unscientific. Black tried too hard to replicate the chemistry of the boys in the first Predator movie but ended up with a group less impressive than that in Predators. In the end, the danger arose for a bit and then was eliminated. The rest of the story - the end of the direction it was headed - was just left hanging. Coming to our world? Heck, no! The Predator didn't go anywhere except in a circle. We needed a home run. We got a long fly foul ball.

Ouch Fred Dekker, you'll trigger Neill Blomkamp with such a statement about the memorability of certain characters of Alien³/Aliens, even though you're correct to the majority of a modern audience.
