Predator Two

Predator Two

1990 Directed by Stephen Hopkins. Starring Danny Glover, Gary Busey, Ruben Blades, Maria Conchita Alonso, Bill Paxton, Robert Davi, Kevin Peter Hall, Morton Downey, Jr.

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Fri., Jan. 11, 1991

As Super-cop Glover gets closer to the Predator, this alien fighting machine gains nothing resembling coherency or sense. Its modus operandi is search and destroy. Why? How? If questions like this matter to you, Predator 2 will give you fits. It's shoot-em-up action from start to finish, beginning at such a peak that there's hardly any room for the action to build or climax.
