Shane Black’s The Predator: 10 Critical Reactions You Need To See

The Thor: Ragnarok of the Predator franchise...

20th Century Fox

With its theatrical release just around the corner, the first reactions to Shane Black's The Predator have started to flood the web.

The film recently had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, where a bunch of critics were among the first people in the world to watch the latest instalment in the decades-old franchise.

The movie has suffered several delays so has been a long time coming, and the one question on everybody's lips is... is it any good?

Unfortunately, the initial wave of reactions has been rather mixed. The Predator series has had more than its fair share of downs (depending on who you ask, the first one is great and the rest are terrible), so many were hoping for a return to the glory days of the original, with Black's experienced hands guiding The Predator to success. But it doesn't seem like that's the case.

Luckily, it's not all bad. It won't be remembered as a classic, but The Predator contains more than enough alien action, bloody death scenes and entertaining characters to satisfy both fans and newcomers, and critics had a lot to say about it.
