Where Predator had strengths that balanced out its weaknesses, Predator 2 has little to no redeeming factors making up for a weak script and tremendous overacting.

Los Angeles is the home of a turf war between Colombian and Jamaican drug cartels in 1997. Lieutenant Mike Harrigan (Danny Glover) is found in the middle of the cartels trying to break up the violence when he is targeted by a new Predator (Kevin Michael Hall).

Starting with the fact that Glover is supposed to be a replacement protagonist for Arnold Schwarzenegger equally fighting against the Predator, this film severely lacks. The script is jumbled with side plots that are confusing and the CGI is rough.

It’s clear that the creators wanted to benefit off the success of Predator, but everything here is too rushed.

Final say: A sequel easy to skip. ★★☆☆☆
