    As expected sounds absolutely woeful.

    From the first trailer I thought it looked guff. Latest trailer makes it look slightly less guff.

    Add this franchise to the list of franchises that need burying.

    Tbh, I'm only in it to see predators do predator stuff. The rest looks cack., but I can kind of live with it if it's all we've got.

    Shame though...

    I’m going on Thursday with zero expectations but even if I didn’t have an Odeon Limitless card, I’d be going.

    Off Saturday morning to watch, after the trailer mess ups going for standard 2d as it won't cost anything.

    I’ll go see it next week, not in any rush.

    Just finished watching Predators (2010) which wasn’t as bad as I’d anticipated. Haven’t bothered watching any of the AVP films recently because I’ve already seen them once (years ago when they came out) and that’s quite enough :p

    Yeah Predators was a decent squeal in hindsight. Less said the AvP films the better, could have been amazing but they're both horrible

    Quite enjoyed Predators tbh, Oscar material in comparison to the AvP's etc!

    Off to see this at 1230 today. My test for films like this, any film I see at the cinema actually, is would I have paid for the full priced ticket if I didn’t have an Odeon Limitless card. Surely it can’t be as bad as people here are expecting can it? :D

    I would not have been happy paying to go and see that.

    It could have been a good film but one thing really ruined it for me and that's the ****oooo sweary not deleted, I almost bypassed the system**** from the bus, from the trailer, who were in the film throughout getting on my nerves in every scene they were in.

    I took enjoyment as one by one they died gruesomely at the end of the film.

    thats one of my main problems from the trailers - all the people look irritating and lacking any screen charisma.

    Look through this whole thread and i've been a sceptic all the way along. I actually really enjoyed it, humour was a little OTT but not typical Shane Black bad. Glaring plotholes aside it was an entertaining popcorn romp.

    If you go in not expecting anything from it, it's actually a fun movie with some hilarious jokes and quotes. Having Keegan-Michael Key playing a joker in it does make it work.

    The Predator killer weapon at the end, everyone was losing their **** in the cinema thinking this has got to be Arnie hahaha. With how funny the movie was, it would have actually worked if it was him as some kind of cyber person :p

    The score for this on RT keeps on tumbling. At one point, I was surprised to see it around 70%. At the time, I thought that I hadn't seen a trailer for a film that look so bad get so many positive reviews. They must have let in all the critics guaranteed to give it a decent score first, because it's now dropped to 35%. :p

    Just got back from this. Meh is all I can say. Much prefer predators (2010). Thought the CGI was dodgy as he'll at times. Acting is poor, didn't care for any character etc.

    Turn brain off and you might find it mildly entertaining, worse of the series so far imo.

    Just saw it.

    Mess of a film. 5/10

    Strangely enjoyable but not for reasons you would expect? Weird out of place jokes. incredibly clunky editing in parts. Characters that just are cliche and frankly weird.

    Best Alien comedy film i seen in 2018 i guess.

    The Pred Dogs, why... The I need to poop scene, impressive stomach control. Tourettes Soldier?? an unessacary evil bad guy

    Jesus that review above is spot on for me lol
