Predator 2 (1990)

An odd follow-up to a jungle action movie. It bursts with cop cliches, but doesn’t do anything particularly memorable with them. The setting felt like a Robocop-esque near dystopia, but wasn’t delved into much.

It’s different from the first film, sure, but I didn’t feel like there was any meaningful iteration. It feels very perfunctory and workmanlike, a decidedly average cop film with an alien dropped into it, that does very little interesting with it. Doesn’t feel as full of life as the first film, it feels lazy where the first film felt good-naturedly cheesy and machismo. I’m all for dumb fun, but this wasn’t very fun. I give it one and a half gang wars, and an antique pistol.
