PREDATOR 2


PREDATOR 2
   Film (1990). Gordon/Silver/Davis/20th Century-Fox. Dir Stephen Hopkins, starring Danny Glover, Gary Busey, Ruben Blades, Maria Conchita Alonso, Bill Paxton. Screenplay Jim Thomas, John Thomas. 107 mins. Colour.
   This superior sequel to PREDATOR is a well oiled adrenaline machine. Los Angeles, 1997, is anarchic, with Jamaican and Colombian drug gangs, the LApolice and the FBI all at each other's throats. A new ALIEN Predator, drawn by global hotspots, is trophy-hunting there on safari. A Black policeman succeeds where the creepy feds fail, and as a recognition of his valour receives a duelling pistol from yet more Predators who arrive for the finale. Stan Winston's alien design (great mandibles) is threatening and interesting, just right for a New Right Vigilante alien who picks off the bad guys first. P2 is pure and stylish exploitation-movie making, and shows a witty recognition of the same violence-begets-violence syndrome it abets.
