    I think my review of The Predator is apt here for this 4K rewatch:
    "Too dumb to be any good but too dumb to really hate".

    ... and watching this for maybe only the second time since the cinema and in a glorious native 4K remaster, it's hard not to be amazed at just how wonderful the effects work was/still is, and, at its core this movie is a vehicle to deliver thrills and silliness.
