At the end of the fight in the slaughter house, Lt. Harrigan scrambles up a ladder and goes onto the roof with the predator in hot pursuit. A few moments later, Harrigan slams into the predator and they both fall off the roof. Suddenly, they are about 30 stories up dangling from a ledge. The slaughter house wasn't 30 stories tall...it wasn't even three stories! See more...
The plot of Predator 2 underwent a few changes in its earliest stages. The role of Gary Busey's character 'Keyes' was actually intended to be Dutch, Arnold Schwarzenegger's character from the first film. Arnold was very outspoken against the script of Predator 2, and felt that taking it into the city was a bad idea. He declined filling the role. Hence, Peter Keyes was created. Arnold was approached one more time, to be Keyes' assistant (a role played by Adam Baldwin), but his response was the same as the first time: no way. See more...

Predator 2 (1990) - 5 questions
The "questions" section is for any random questions that occurred to you while watching this film, or anything you didn't entirely understand, and which Google or the IMDb can't help with. Submit them as a question, and hopefully someone will answer (the bold comments in brackets) - check back regularly. If the answer is wrong, or missing information, please use the "clarify answer" option. Don't feel limited - want to know what music played in a certain scene? Whether this was the first film to use a certain effect? Here's the place to ask!
Question: Right after the Jamaicans kill Ramon Vega and the predator slaughters all of them, Jerry Lambert says, "she (Ramon's girlfriend) never made it". What could she have died of? She was seen walking with Leona Cantrell and didn't seem wounded, and the predator would not have hurt her because she was unarmed. If she were wounded, she would have been checked out by paramedics right away.
Answer: Jerry means she never made it to the hospital. Keyes' goon squad intercepted the ambulance and snatched her to interrogate her about the Predator.
Question: Why did the Predator target drug dealers, and what was his interest in Danny Glover's character? I never found a connection between the two.
Answer: The predators are honour bound hunters, and as such they will only attack a target if it is capable of defending itself (i.e, if it is armed, which is why it doesn't attack the boy in the cemetary). Although the police outside were armed as well, the Predator presumably attacked the drug dealers because they were a harder target (as the police were outside he could have just sniped them from the roof tops, but he had to get relatively close inside the building) and as such, killing them gave a higher honour. The obsession with Danny Glover's character is probably because he is quite a brave and heroic person, similar to a Predator (the way he saves the other cop by risking himself etc.), so the predator may have been studying him for a while. There's also more honour in killing someone like that (as he'd be a hard target) than there is in just killing a random armed guy.
Question: At the end, what does the date and the name on the gun mean? Any significance? Other then that they have been hunting before, I wanna know who that person is, the name on the gun.
Answer: The person is not relevant. The antique gun is proof that the Predators have been visiting earth for a long time.
