Critics reviews

In this conflict, a literal monster has been substituted for a metaphorical Other. Unfortunately, special effects have also been substituted for suspense. The early appearance of the Predator makes the final gladiatorial conflict predictable, and the monster’s multiple transformations also exhaust interest in its final appearance, which comes as no real surprise.
