CHICAGO – By the standards of Predator sequels, “The Predator” is easily the best of the bunch. But that’s a depressingly low bar to clear… kind of like saying you got the nicest looking “Yugo” on the lot. Coming 31 years after Arnold Schwarzenegger battled the original “one ugly mother f**ker,” this reboot brings the space alien with the heat seeking vision to the suburbs.

HollywoodChicago.com Oscarman rating: 3.0/5.0
Rating: 3.0/5.0

The movie gets down to business almost immediately, as Quinn (Boyd Holbrook) fights off the space alien “Predator,” who has slaughtered the rest of his unit south of the border. He purloins a mask and arm gauntlet from the Predator’s crashed spaceship and mails it to his son (Jacob Tremblay) for safe keeping. Quinn is arrested by the military for this heist, and gets saddled on a bus with a group of rag-tag soldiers nicknamed the “Loonies,” while his son manages to accidentally summon more predators to earth while thinking it’s an elaborate video game.

“The Predator” opens everywhere in on September 14th, in IMAX and regular screenings. See local listings for IMAX theaters and show times. Featuring Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rodes, Jacob Tremblay, Olivia Munn, Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown, Thomas Jane and Jake Busey. Written by Shane Black and Fred Dekker. Directed by Shane Black. Rated “R”
