The TV Guide - - DVD RELEASES -

Star­ring Boyd Hol­brook, Tre­vante Rhodes. Direc­tor Shane Black.

Wouldn’t num­ber­ing them be sim­pler? The Preda­tor is the fourth film in the Preda­tor fran­chise, fol­low­ing on from 1987’s Preda­tor, Preda­tor 2 (hooray!), and Preda­tors. This time around, a Preda­tor’s ship crash lands on Earth, and is cap­tured by Army Rangers when it at­tacks them. But, of course, it gets away, set­ting off a fa­mil­iar chain of vi­o­lent events, al­though the in­clu­sion of an autis­tic boy into the nar­ra­tive of­fered an op­por­tu­nity, some­what wasted, for a point of dif­fer­ence.
