You give it a lot more credit than I have. I think Predator 2 is a classic example of the studio putting out a sequel regardless of anything that makes sense except cashing in.... On the coattails of the highly popular original.

The story is wrong. I mean all through a major city? The casting was a real head scratcher. An old detective that hobbles along really puts the cobash on a believable action movie. It was photographed well and the director did what he could with what he was given, but this was so far removed from the original, I felt the powers to be totally blew it. I never looked for a rehash, but wasn't expecting a total diversion like this. I've watched it once since the first time, hoping I was wrong. I was not.

One of those movies (like Alien 4) I completely ignore like it never happened.
