What you point out in great detail is exactly how I feel about the first 3/4th of the movie. I love the actors, but the casting as you said is just....pushing it. I think my original review of pointing out the cast makes it sound like the cast for the movie was perfect.  It's not. Was simply trying to highlight that I like them as actors in general. The movie is wrong having it take place in downtown LA. I think the reason why the last act works for me is that all of the sudden it became claustrophobic like the original. Having it play out in wide open spaces of the city never felt right for me. The other thing I did like about it is the final reveal when suddenly Harrigan is faced not with just one Predator, but a whole horde of them. The first time I ever saw the movie, I never thought about there being more than one at any given time.

This is definitely one of those movies that got rushed out just for the sake of putting it out there and seeing how much money they could squeeze out of the franchise.
