Arnold V.S. Predator is Okay

Predator is an alright action/horror film. The characters are offed in a sort of slasher movie system, with one getting killed after another. However, Predator is not scary or even very suspenseful, just bloody. The movie is done well though, and the predator is a great enemy. If you're a fan of Sci-fi action or slasher films, you might like this, but no promises. Parents should know that there is a lot of bloody violence and language in this film. Violence includes; a man is blasted in the side of the head (bloody), and man is blasted in the chest with his busted rib cage visible (bloody), a man is found hanging from a tree and skinned (very bloody), a dead mans skull and spine are ripped out of his body, a man gets a knife through the head, a mans arm is blown off, a mans guts are found on the ground, a man is stabbed through the chest many times, a mans head is blown up and many, many men are torn apart and killed by guns. The violence is all by 80's standard though, and not very realistic. There are also a handful of profanities, including f**k, s**t, p***y, and f****t.

A good action film, not a good film film

Okay, this movie is pretty violent as far as M rated films go, but then again M rated films don't get that bad. The violence is all ridiculous and very unrealistic, but the swearing gets pretty strong. Overall if your kid hasn't seen any particularly violent films before they shouldn't start with this. maybe try The Terminator or Robocop (2014). Don't watch Cowboys & Aliens, save your two hours.

Classic Arnold film is ultra violent and not for most kids.

The classic 80s film, predetor is about a squad of special forces who are sent to a jungle in America to investigate the cause of the strange dissaperances in the area when they find their not alone. The film itself is very violent the predetor rips out people spines, skins people, impales humans, slits there throat, rips their heads off, fires lasers at them that leaves massive bloody holes in there bodies and kills them in a number of different brutal ways. There is lots of guns and knife fights with heaps of explosions, suspense and language. Which includes many f words s words and a use of the n word. Characters are also shown smoking and taking drugs. Overall it's a great film and if you watch it with your kid a 13 year old can watch it. Without supervision it should be limited to 15 and over.

Laughably bad.....

Predator is a fairly violent film (burst ribcages, skinned corpses...) but the violence is hardly realistic and will make most teens laugh at how terrible it is. The worst thing is probably the language and vulgarity (fuck in almost every scene and a guy who keeps making jokes about his girlfriends pussy. Overall if your teen has scene any alien films this is barely as bad.

Not so great...

This movie is pretty bad. The violence is extreme and it actually gave me some nightmares. Id recommend to only watch the ending since that was the only part that was actually good.

Amazing movie

I really loved this movie it's great! The violence is pretty bad but nothing a lot of people can't handle. the swearing is also a bit too much there is quite a lot of assorted words suck as f$$$ a$$ s$$$ b$$$$$. Not any sexual stuff that is bad. It does have good role models they are men fighting for their life using teamwork to take down the enemy.

Horrible

All there is is walking through the woods, shooting people, and bad language. This is definitely not a good movie. The predator isn't even cool.

Predator Review

Predator is a good movie but the swearing is really bad. The F word is used about 18 times. One of the soldiers is seen chewing tobacco. There is indeed a lot of violence but the special effects are pretty bad.

Very Good Just Beware

Well for one thing this movie is about an alien that kills people for sport and skins them, however it's a really good movie and younger viewers may be frightened by the predator's appearance especially with his mask off.
