Blam! Boom! Bang! Arnie may be
missing, but the bad guy is back, or at least one like it. This
Predator is even better equipped to kick human ass having all sorts
of nifty optional extras: ultra-violet sight as well as infra-red,
killer frisbees and lots of freaky weapons, as opposed to the
original Predator's minimalist style (it went for the locking wheel
nuts and a stereo radio instead). Virtually an expanded remake, set
in the urban jungle of LA, I don't think this will disappoint - it's
intelligently exploitative, Glover bringing more to his
character than Schwarzenegger did, while the action sequences easily
make up for some slack moments early on. The last ten minutes, as
our hero finds the alien spaceship, made me sit back and go 'Whoa!'.
An early contender for Pyrotechnic Overkill Movie of 1991.
