During an archaeological expedition on Bouvetøya Island in Antarctica, a team of archaeologists and other scientists find themselves caught up in a battle between the two legends. Soon, the team realize that only one species can win.
From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home. Now, the universe's most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.Written by

Picket One, copy. Do you got eyes on hostages?
20 bucks says they don't show.
You two morons really making bets on whether a drug cartel has executed hostages?
I believe that was implied.
Just checking. I'm in for 20.

In the trailers, the 20th Century Fox logo appears through the Predator's thermal vision. The movie itself sticks with the usual Fanfare intro with no Predator embellishments. See more »
I went into this movie trying my best to stay objective and take it for what it was.
And I enjoyed it as a sci fi action movie, it wasn't bad. No where near as bad as some of the more fanatical fans seem to think it was here.
Acting was good, screenplay was good, pacing was good. Story was actually not that bad neither. Unless someone wanted to try and challenge the original in terms of plot, there's not many options that works, this kinda did work.
If you ignore the more crazy fans that like to bash on anything that's not on par with their own opinions, you'll enjoy this film.
People don't seem to understand that rating 5 out of 10 is "watchable but not for me." ratings. Yet there's individuals out there that give perfectly alright movies 2 and 3 stars just because they can't give objective opinions even if their lives depended on it.
But I digress.
The movie was a excellent action movie, a great sci fi movie and a questionable Predator movie. So how should we base the rating then?
7/10 action movie.
7/10 sci fi movie.
5/10 Predator movie.
Final verdict = 6/10
