Other mistake: In the slaughterhouse scene, after Harrigan has injured the Predator with his shotgun and Keyes reappears, the Predator throws its disc, and severs Keyes in half at the waist. We see his legs flop to the ground, and blood pour from above, but his upper half (torso, backpack and weaponry) mysteriously remain hovering out of sight. (01:21:50)
The Predator is a cool antagonist, but the movies that this character is put into do not it any favours. Danny Glover was good in the lead role and I appreciated the change of scenery.
That being said, the direction felt very tone deaf, switching from a cop movie to a post apocalyptic movie to a sci-fi/action movie to a horror movie. Also, Alan Silvestri came back to compose this movie and once again, his score completely takes away any tension a scene could have built because the music never feels as if it fits this kind of movie. The most tense moments from this movie and the previous movie have been those did not feature a background score.
Jerry Lambert: Okay everybody, just take a deep breath. Loosen your sphincters. We don't need any rush hour Rambos here.
Question: Why at the end, after the Predators have appeared before Danny Glover to give him the pistol, do they camouflage themselves again? Being that they're on their own ship, and no hunt is in progress... Camouflaging themselves just seems like the special effects technicians wanted to indulge themselves one more time before the end of the movie.
