Continuity mistake: When Rory holds the predator's mask from the box it changes position between shots.
I saw this movie in theaters.
Like most other Predator movies, it still doesn't hold up to the original. The first film was a mystery, suspense, action thriller sci-fi and ahead of its time. This movie tries to be an action sci-fi comedy.
And where it does get a few good laughs on some of the jokes, it mostly falls flat.
The writing is nothing special and the visuals are noting unique. The characters seem all the same, and there is very little to be left unexpected.
All that being said, it's not a bad film. It's entertaining and fun. It's just nothing special.
Mistake Status: Caught one while in theaters. I plan to eventually go through the Predator movies for mistakes.
Traeger: Do you know what my job description is? I'm in acquisitions. I look up and I catch what falls out of the sky.
Trivia: When Rory is walking down the street wearing the Predator mask, there is a bright red/orange alien walking toward him. This is a nod to the original Predator costume that looked like a big bug, the red/orange color was used to film the stealth camouflage scenes. The bug suit was scrapped after a few test shots proved how silly it looked. Jean-Claude Van Damme was in the original costume, but he was let go when the costume was scrapped. (00:45:20)
Question: The movie Predator, is supposedly canon to only the first Predator film and never acknowledges the second film from even happening. Sort of a Superman Returns deal where it's a sequel to an earlier film, retconning the later films. This movie, however, acknowledges both of the first films but nothing about Predators is ever mentioned. But considering the premise of Predators, maybe just nobody in the film researching these aliens knows about the events of that film, however unlikely. So my question is this movie canon with all 3 previous films, or does it not count Predators?
