“Get to the choppers!” Pred4tor (2018) Takes place in the streets of suburbia this time, an undoubtedly unique young boy named Rory McKenna (Jacob Tremblay) accidentally triggers the return of one of the most lethal species in the universe. In this surprisingly comedic film, ex-soldier Quinn Mckenna (Boyd Holbrook) and his team take on this new genetically modified hunter along with the bothersome government agent Traeger (Sterling K. Brown).
This film had great timing with its comedy hitting viewers when the tension was high but without overdoing it. As a person who enjoys the classics, this film would be appealing to those who enjoy the action and amazing special effects. One cool thing worth noting is how a few of the lines included in the film, referred to other scenes in previous films in the Predator series. Although this film had its hilarious moments, the majority of the plot was absolutely horrible. The original objective(revealed later in the film) of the Predator has almost no relation to the dramatic events that play out in the first half of the movie. A disappointment was that the movie was not scary, a few jumpscares would not have been a bad thing. Included in the cast are Olivia Munn (Casey Bracket), Trevante Rhodes (Nebraska Williams), Keegan-Michael Key (Coyle), Thomas Jane (Baxley), Alfie Allen(Lynch), and August Aguilera (Nettles). Although the movie was funny and action-packed, I believe that the plot earned the film a C+ for previously stated reasons.
