The Predator (2018)

When a young boy accidentally triggers the universe’s most lethal hunters’ return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race. (IMDb)
The opening music and spaceship crash give a classic action/sci-fi vibe but it’s inconsistent at best in the first act. The second act with its ragtag crew shows both comedic (see the motel bed arranging) and dramatic (see the ex-soldiers’ haunting pasts) potential but then the comedy gets distasteful and the drama’s dismissed. Then the third act’s just a glut of suspense-less action (Casey’s chair move was cool though) and a poor plot. An unlikable lead and confusing villain never help matters.
5.5/10 (Poor)
