Most of the movie is pretty boring. The first 45 minutes were almost a Terrence Malilick movie. There were a couple cool scenes with the Predator fighting a wolf and a bear. Around the 45 minute mark the Predator starts killing the natives. The fight choreography between the natives and the Predator are good. The French trappers are basically cartoon cannon fodder.

You probably want to hear if the main character is a Mary Sue woke sjw dream? The answer is sort of? She fails a lot and has to work for what she has. They do make her a bigger physical threat than she realistic would have been. So she was a little OP but I've seen worse.

Oh, the Predator looks like shit. He looks like an elite from the Halo tv show.

I used to give stuff a chance. Now I don't watch anything unless some soyjack critic complains about it being racist/sexist/cultural appropriation.

Mpetey123 [S] 10 points ago +10 / -0

The critics seem to love it, and the audience rating on rotten tomatoes is high as well.

The critics seem to love it,

That's a hard pass from me then.

"Why do you want to hunt"

"Because y'all think I can't."

I noped the fuck out at that moment, in the trailer. So no thanks, not even worth torrenting.

"bet she doesn't even know how to suck dick.."

It really is that easy boys.

Mpetey123 [S] 6 points ago +7 / -1

That's in the first five minutes.

aloha_snackbar22 17 points ago +17 / -0

Saved me from wasting 5 minutes then.

You paid money to Hollywood and encouraged them to make more crappy movies that propagandize "the message".

Stop giving money to people that hate you and want you and your family dead.

Mpetey123 [S] -2 points ago +6 / -8

Technically my brother paid money but thanks for nothing though.

Just watched it (pirated).

It's nonsensical. We're supposed to believe a 1716 Native woman can have nearly full understanding of the use of several pieces of Predator technology while also being able to fight toe-to-toe with it for several minutes (and winning). I thought it was alright until the last 15ish minutes, at which point it became completely and irredeemably retarded.

Mpetey123 [S] 1 point ago +4 / -3

Her picking up on things and being a quick study was setup and built throughout the movie, Devil's advocate

Hugs 9 points ago +9 / -0

The things you're talking about are the Predator technology itself, which was absurd, and the flintlock, for which she was given instruction. Do you really think it's reasonable for someone with no experience with any kind of tech to understand an alien laser guidance system after one encounter? Lol.

Mpetey123 [S] -1 points ago +2 / -3

Understand it no. But grasping that little red dots appear and where the dots are showing up an arrow goes to that spot doesn't take some sophisticated knowledge to grasp. It's also a Predator movie so how much "realism" do you want?

Hugs 5 points ago +5 / -0

You're taking for granted that your own awareness of modern day guidance systems and exposure to who-knows-how-many sci-fi properties makes recognition of something similar super obvious to you. For someone who doesn't even have a concept of that to understand it in one go is beyond absurd. Also, how could she know that the Predator's system doesn't have alternate modes, for example? If it did, she'd be dead.

And don't go the "realism" copout route. There are reasons why some movies are good and some are bad, and a lot of that has to do with whether or not they make sense.

Mpetey123 [S] -2 points ago +1 / -3

She saw a light show up on a guy, where that light was an arrow hit there. She saw it happened around three times in the movie. It doesn't take a genius to figure out where that light goes, an arrow follows. It's not like she jail broke an IPhone. She put the helmet with the weapon in a place where the Predator would walk in front of it and cause the device to go off. Yes I'm sure in reality the system would take more to fire it but grasping the basic concept of the weapon wasn't that hard

LauriThorne 6 points ago +6 / -0

That's only realistic up to a point. This shit would be like magic to her there's no way she'd just figure it out when no one in the world has ever actually used anything more advanced than basic machines at that point in history. There's nothing her brain could have compared it to in order to figure it out

GoofTroop186 14 points ago +14 / -0

I actually thought the predator looked cool when they got around to fucking showing him. The biggest crime in this one is the budget and it being pitch black for 40% of the action and the predator being cloaked for the other 40. There was no like cat and mouse game either, or like no “hunt”, just the predator terrorizing people until it died.

Mpetey123 [S] 4 points ago +4 / -0

I hated the Predator look, different strokes, I thought the biggest cfime was being boring. It is weird he'd drop down in an area in relative peace and target Comanche warriors and fur trappers.

AlbertFish 13 points ago +14 / -1

I can’t stand that chick’s face. If they got someone hotter I might have given it a chance.

Mpetey123 [S] 4 points ago +7 / -3

I think she is beautiful. If anything I wish they'd pick a rough looking woman for these movies. I mean none of the guys in the first Predator movie were classicly handsome.

DonuteaterReturns 11 points ago +11 / -0

You're really saying a bunch of bodybuilders aren't attractive?

SupremeReader 4 points ago +4 / -0

Private Vasquez?

playdomjothuman -1 points ago +9 / -10

Unfortunately they couldn't. Brown skin cannot be beautiful, but given the context, it had to be a brown.

Adamrises 12 points ago +12 / -0

I'm just sick of them coming up with new ways of getting the Predators to fight humans. It peaked with the original where it fought probably the greatest possible threat a human could pose, and ever since its been just contrived "surely my superior speed and intellect will win this" dexfag bullshit.

Give me a movie about them hunting some other strange alien race. No dialogue even needed, just pure hunter vs hunter action.

DonuteaterReturns 12 points ago +12 / -0

That was the appeal of the Alien Vs Predator stuff. 3 strong contenders in an all out battle. i have no idea why they keep bringing the franchise to less interesting places.

Predators vs Engineers. There you go hollywood, that one is free.

Adamrises 2 points ago +2 / -0

I never read the comics, but at least the AVP movies were both more about the humans to the point of barely having enough screentime for either of the others.

And there was little "hunter" action. It was always just direct action. Neither the Xenomorphs or Predators have felt like proper horror hunters since their original movies.

Did you pay for it or sail the high seas?

Mpetey123 [S] 4 points ago +4 / -0

I used my brother's Hulu

Smith1980 6 points ago +6 / -0

So there aren’t any moments where she lectures men or anything?

Mpetey123 [S] 9 points ago +10 / -1

No, she rolls her eyes a lot. She does have a speech at the end, that she says to a French trapper but it's about the Predator not seeing her as a threat, but the Predator apparently can't hear her. So it's mostly for the audience.

Smith1980 9 points ago +9 / -0

Thanks for the info about the movie. It’s kinda sad because a few years ago I would give any movie a chance but now you have to ask if it’s woke

Mpetey123 [S] 5 points ago +6 / -1

Right, it's one thing if new movies in an established franchise are bad but now they have to corrupt the original franchise by being woke garbage

m0r1arty 6 points ago +6 / -0

This is the first Predator without asthma.

BlightBane 5 points ago +5 / -0

Sounds like a pass. Any good gore?

Mpetey123 [S] 3 points ago +3 / -0

It was decently gorey.

Vegi 4 points ago +6 / -2

I enjoyed it. It wasnt in your face sjw bullshit beyond having a female protagonist. And i lile slashers so i can deal with that. Some of the kills were amazing.

Tekgod 4 points ago +5 / -1

No one over 12 should begin a sentence with "sooooo...." where it isn't grammatical appropriate. Let's stop perpetuating this teenage valley girl dialect. Also, stop saying, "I feel like..." when referring to your thoughts, perspectives, and conclusions.

Mpetey123 [S] 1 point ago +2 / -1

Bless your heart. If you point out where I wrote the phrase I feel in my post, I'll erase it.

Tekgod 3 points ago +3 / -0

Thank you and all the best to you as well. /s

Do you feel that it was implied that I was pointing it as a specific instance of it being written in your post or do you feel that it could possibly be interpreted as a second suggestion, speaking in general terms, to all other adults out there reading the post?

Mpetey123 [S] 0 points ago +1 / -1

Sooo when I think about how you feel about it, I decided that to me I feel like I don't care what your implication was.

RandomFurryDude 1 point ago +2 / -1

Film had way too much CGI, but I am glad the film wasn't as 'hurrr GIRL POWER' as the trailer implied.

By all means it has propaganda nonsense in it, but at least they were subtle about it, I guess?

Not worth purchasing a ticket for, but if you have 1.5 hours of time to spare and you find a torrent, it's an okay watch. 5/10

Mpetey123 [S] 0 points ago +1 / -1

I went with 6/10 because it had some great cinematography and seeing the natives fight and hunt was pretty good.
