Personal Rating - 3.5/5

Predator 2, is the sequel to the 1987 classic, which most of us first came across as the interesting book in the library titled "පිටසක්වලින් ආ අත්භූත සත්වයා".

The first movie's plot was wrapped around a Giant Predator from another terrorizing a group of commandos in a jungle setting. Now, this sequel does a weird step and brings the predator into the city. Now I could swear that I remember if the predator in the first movie died at the end, so it got questioned how he came back in this movie. But a satisfactory solution was provided in the end. However, in this plot, this city in America is reigned by drug cartel gangs, and it is almost like the cops are powerless, except for the handful including Lieutenant Mike Harrigan. Suspicions arises when the Jamaican Drug Cartel members gets murdered in a string by an unknown force.

Predator 2 stars Danny Glover in the lead role, who also meets with us in Lethal Weapon 2 (1990) which was made in the same year. We got Gary Busey and Bill Paxton in supporting roles, and a very sexy (at least to me) Maria Alonso. Made by Stephen Hopkins, whom I have no collection of meeting before.

Man, this was a lot of fun. I am not the greatest fan of the 1987 classic starring Schwarzenegger, nevertheless, it was very well done. However, this sequel being set in the city can bring that fantastic 80s vibe into play. Right in my alley, typical, but never gets tired of it. A badass black lead, a great score, a subway train fight, streets of shadows, plus, another beautiful element, the ass-kicking short hair girl. This may have a lot of issues, plot, or logic, but damn this was Entertaining af. This is Hollywood.
