THE PREDA­TOR (MA15+) Big­ger and badder, but not much bet­ter, US, 107 min

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - Flicks -

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.
