The Predator has everything going for it. It has horror and humor at the same time. What I like about this film is you are relying on younger kids fate increasing the most lethal hunters getting stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before. The other humorous part is the ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race. How cool is that!
You’ll never see him coming!
Rory (Jacob Tremblay) opens a package and finds out there is a predator weapon and mask. Than the predator disappears and reappears and never knows when he will attack or where he is going to be. That CGI is amazing and the upgrade Predator sees in infrared.
The Predator is about a kid that knows more than the adults about aliens.
It’s the initially difficult government guys who will eventually need our hero’s help to survive. And yet The Predator never plays like a pure parody. You get the sense that Black genuinely loves these tropes.
