THE PREDATOR (MA15+) Bigger and badder, but not much better, US, 107 min
The original Arnie-starring Predator from 1987 is a run-gun-and-repeat classic. All the rest have been cinematic dumpster fires, barely able to stay alight until the closing credits. While the same outcome is achieved by this erratic reboot, it does put up a good fight (and some great frights) before assuming the form of hot garbage. The action centres on the unwelcome arrival to Earth of a new, super-sized Predator and the motley crew of mouth-breathing caricatures with whom he will be skirmishing for our entertainment (dis)pleasure.
