The Predator: No efforts are made to make it better
The Predator is the fourth installment of the Predator series but this film fails to impress the critics in its early review. When compared to its prequels, it looks much lighter in horror, action and solution. The critics are writing that movie lacks the force its prequels had and that audiences expecting the thrill of earlier Predator movies would be disappointed.
The Predator Story
An alien force makes an emergency landing on earth and runs havoc on the residents. American security agencies are busy tracking the dreading Mexican drug lords when a plane crash-lands and a much bigger force than the drug lords come out from the plane. These are aliens but they are smarter and deadlier than their predecessors. They are the most lethal hunters of the universe.
Where does story fail to impress?
It isn’t the first time that the audiences are seeing encounters of the earth with aliens but the way the story is handled makes it more comic than horrific. The aliens kill everyone but leave a sniper to alert the American super force to get ready for the battle with them. Also, the government easily finds a biologist that can find a solution to this problem. The things are arranged and the battle is won with much ease and comfort.
