Silent. Invisible. Invincible. He's Coming to Town with a Few Days to Kill.
This electrifying action sequel unleashes the deadly invisible Predator in another jungle -- the urban jungle of Los Angeles. Danny Glover stars as a lieutenant who mistakenly concludes that mangled bodies found by the police are the work of feuding gangs. Instead, he finds himself confronting a savage alien who has come from a distant world to hunt humans for sport. Gary Busey and Ruben Blades co-star in this suspense-packed, high-tech thriller.

"You'll barely have time to catch your breath!  The Hollywood Reporter

Editor's Note

DVD Town 5 of 10
Let's see. Where were we? Oh, yes. It was 1987, and the Predator had just dispatched Carl Weathers and the governor of Minnesota before being cornered by Big Arnold near a river in the Central American jungles. And we thought that was the end of the big fella. The Predator, I mean, not Big Arnold. But, no, it wasn't. Any time you've got an enormously popular action thriller like "Predator," you've got to have a sequel. Thus, "Predator 2" came to the screen in 1990...This time the creature is busying himself in Los Angeles, nothing new to the adventure genre. After all, Tarzan left the jungles for the Big Apple. King Kong effected a transition and climbed the Empire State Building. Even the T-Rex from "Jurassic Park" made it to the mainland to terrorize a metropolis. Only now, the Predator doesn't have Schwarzenegger to deal with; nor does he have director John McTiernan ("Die Hard," "The Hunt for Red October") to guide him through his paces. Worse, the critter doesn't have the spectacular scenery and gorgeous cinematography of the original movie to maintain our interest..."Predator 2" sports an amazing number of good actors thrown away in dead-end roles, the only memorable part played by the late Morton Downey, Jr., as an odious news reporter, a role that so well fit his personality he didn't need to act...For what it's worth, the movie actually picks up a little tension in the last half hour or so, but it's a long haul getting there; and once the climax finally comes, it's so contrived it spoils everything that went before it. This poor film can't get anything right...As far as sequels go, this one proves the case for quitting while you're ahead. "Predator 2" tries to capitalize on a good-looking creature design but can't make up its mind what to do with it. The plot is shopworn, the ending is muddled, almost sentimentalized, the actors are wasted, and the only serious action comes much too late for anyone to care. - John J. Puccio

Aliens are like dreams. We have bad ones when we're troubled...The creature who visits Earth in "Predator 2" is a savage hunter that can make itself invisible. It stalks from above and eviscerates its human prey with savage skill...The world of "Predator 2" is a fearful world, a Los Angeles in the year 1997, when gunfire rules the streets and cops shoot it out with drug dealers. During one confrontation, a strange event takes place. Five drug dealers, heavily armed and barricaded inside a building, are killed by some sort of visitor who is unarmed, who can throw a 160-pound man 20 feet in the air, and who leaves no trace...We've seen this creature before, when it made its entrance in the original "Predator" (1987). That movie starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as a commando in the jungle who was one of the first to encounter the predator after it arrived on Earth. Why was it here? To stalk the planet and kill trophy animals. It was a hunter from the stars, and we were in season. The first movie was leavened with a certain humor (Arnold's one-liners) and with the possibility that the alien would challenge our imagination in some way and be more than just another special-effects monster...Since the predator is imaginary but the people who made this film are not, "Predator 2" speaks sadly of their own lack of curiosity and imagination. All they can give us in the way of an alien is a street mugger with intestines for a face, pincers around his mouth, and an Afro-style braided hairdo...The dialogue is foul and clinical, and the special effects, while expensive, are not interesting...But the film's greatest loss is one of spirit. We live on a speck in a corner of a vast universe, and what makes us human is our ability to wonder about what's out there. Since we do not know, the fables we create serve only to inspire our dreams. "Predator 2" is a movie whose dreams are angry and ugly. - Roger Ebert
