It's up to a ragtag group of ex-soldiers to stop them, along with unexpected help from a disgruntled science teacher. Starring Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, and Keegan-Michael Key.

This worked out perfect for me, my father has 4k TV and Blu-Ray player so he kept the box as 4k disc, while my sister has 1080 TV and regular DVD player so they were able to take that disc, and it came with digital code, which I was able to use in my Google Play Movies account. The movie was better than 2nd, but can anything really compare to the original, when everything we saw was new and exciting, now we kinda know about Predators, so they did good job of keeping movie interesting, while still making it so if you didn't see the first two you weren't lost.
I’ve been waiting for a new Predator movie, and this one doesn’t disappoint. But as much as I love the Predator, it’s the characters that make the movie. It’s off beat and funny but still a good Predator movie.
This Movie is Awesome I’m in 4K HDR with Dolby Atmos and the Steelbook looks Amazing love the Design

Rated 4 out of 5 stars
It was good, but...
I've always loved the first Predator movie, and when the third movie came out (Predators), I loved that one too, with the exception of the lead guy trying to make his voice sound like Batman. Being in the jungle setting, hunting whatevers hunting you, and running for your life, only to be wiped out by Predators, is the essence of a Predator movie to me. The second movie (Predator 2) has always felt like an outside movie to me, but only because it was based in the city, and because they picked an older person to have to fight a Predator hand to hand, knowing that if that had been a real fight, that he would've definitely lost. Why?? Because look how the Predator was throwing around Arnold in the first movie, but yet this old dude with hardly no muscle, is going toe to toe with one. That's never made since to me.
And now this movie comes out. It looked to me that it was based in a small town, near a rock quarry on the outskirts of a wooded area, but definitely not a jungle. Overall, I thought it was good, but it just seemed like it was way too much playing around, to be a real Predator movie. I can understand a couple funny moments, but jokes all through the movie seemed a bit much. And their were two scenes with Predators that just should have been left out. One, was the Predator giving the thumbs up. Yeah, it was a joke, but no other Predator has made a joke up to this point. The second one was when the Big Predator spit. Look at their mouths!! Do they have lips??!!! How was he able to spit??!! I just felt that they shouldn't have tried to add that human characteristic to him, because it didn't really make since with the way their mouths are made. ...What about the Predators dog-like creature?? What became of it?? ...What about the girl?? Remember when the ship was flying away with the men on top of it?? That ship was a long way away from where they left the girl, but yet when it crashes, she pops up all of a sudden. How??!! How did she cover that distance that quick??!!
I'm not saying the movie wasn't good, because it was good. Did it feel like a full on Predator movie, like 1 and 3?? No. I would put it along the line of being like part 2. Hopefully, the next movie will be like 1 and 3.
3 1/2 stars. Enough of the original Predator (incl
Possible spoilers. I’m not sure we needed yet another “Predator” movie but as long as they continue to sell tickets, they’ll keep making them. This edition ignores the other sequels for the most part…certainly the cross-over movies involving the battles against the “Aliens.” The first “Predator” movie – the one with Arnold – is certainly the best. One of the things it had going for it was the absence of a visual creature until well into the movie. It’s just the opposite here.
The film opens with some kind of dogfight in space between Predator creatures. One of the Predator’s is shot down and crashes on, where else, Earth. Just as a military unit is about to rescue a couple of people from some bad guys. Nothing is really clear here about what’s going on. The leader of the Army unit is a sniper named Quinn McKenna (Boyd Holbrook). He escapes the crash and the Predator but loses his team as well as the people he was trying to rescue.
When Quinn returns home to his headquarters, his explanation is questioned but we know from the get go that his primary adversary, Traeger (a menacing Sterling K. Brown), knows he’s telling the truth. But we can’t be spreading the truth about an interstellar killing machine that hunts humans (and other species) for sport. So Quinn is being shipped off on a bus to a mental facility along with some other military types who are a bit psychologically challenged. They include Nebraska (Trevante Rhodes), Coyle (Keegan-Michael Key), Baxley (Thomas Jane), Lynch (Alfie Allen) and Nettles (Augusto Aguilera).
The film was directed and co-written by Shane Black who played one of the hapless soldiers in the original ’87 film. It would appear he wanted to inject some humor into this version and he succeeds, almost to a fault. Some of the early scenes are laugh out loud funny, especially those involving Coyle and Baxley. In the more dramatic action sequences in the final act, the humor had been over-cooked.
Joining this motley crew is a biologist/geneticist named Casey Bracket (Olivia Munn) who proves she can fight and crack wise with the best of them. In the background is Quinn’s ex-wife, Emily (Yvonne Strahovski) and his young son Rory (Jacob Tremblay). Rory is borderline autistic, the kind that is picked on at school. A character we see often in movies and TV. But he’s also a wiz with electronics.
Before dear old dad left the jungle and Predator, he managed to grab some Predator weapons and had them shipped back to his old house. Of course Rory opens the package and thinks it is some kind of video game. When he starts to play around with it, he sends a signal to the Predator about his location. Quinn, realizing his son is in jeopardy, escapes with his new friends from the bus. So now, the Predator, Traeger and Quinn and company make a bee-line for small town America.
Another Predator also shows up and he’s bigger, stronger and meaner than the regulation Predator. It turns out that this bigger badder Pred has been playing around with alien species DNA, including human, to make it smarter and more adaptable. The smaller Predator evidently has sent something to the human population that will save them from his larger brothers.
As convoluted as this all sounds, in the world of science fiction it somehow made sense to me. The screenplay has some big faults and there is no logic for much of the movie but it could have been a lot worse. As it is Black has a good sense for action (“Iron Man 3”). Unfortunately it starts and stops, sometimes to put another gag in. At the same time I was entertained. One thing remains constant in all of the Predator films. These alien creatures and near perfect killing machines and the “R” rating ensure plenty of splayed body parts.
This movie series has always be fun to watch. Unfortunately, none of the more recent movies released in the series have ever been quite as successful as the first 2 movies. “In my opinion”... the lack of success should be primarily contributed to poor writing in general. But, if you’re a HUGE sci-if movie fan, such as myself...you’ll always find your way to a nearby movie theater to catch a matinee showing. And each time, my expectations are always HIGH going in..but, leaving out somewhat disappointed and thinking to myself “that movie could have been done better..if only the storyline and ending had been written BETTER”. Nevertheless, I remain hopeful the decision-makers behind the Predator franchise (or brand) will one day get...their loyal fan base and other moviegoers are STILL looking forward to the next BIG blockbuster release in this series.
