This near-universal acclaim for “Predator” is just what the “Predator” series desperately needed. While Predator is still considered a horror and action icon, the reception for their films ranged from extremely mixed to extremely complex.
Don’t believe us when we say it? Check out other Rotten Tomatoes scores for other films in the series. The 1987 original with The Arnold himself is still praised to this day, reaching 80%. As such, the franchise won’t receive a positive percentage until 2010’s “Predators,” which still holds a low Fresh 65% rating. That does it for the average-rated “Predator” movies, as 2018’s “The Predator” brought in a staggering 33% Rotten ratings for the platform. 1990’s “Predator 2” was just one percent higher than Rotten at 32 percent, though it did have the benefit of amassing a cult following that saw the film as a misunderstood gem.
This re-evaluation is something that hasn’t quite been given to the two most underrated films in the “Predator” franchise, which are two installments in the “Alien vs. Predator” crossover. The first installment in the duo, 2004’s “Alien vs. Predator” received a dismal 22 percent Rotten rating, and the 2007 sequel, “Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem,” was even worse with 12 percent Rotten.
Sorry. So yeah, thank heavens that “Prey” seems to have revived interest and fanfare in this series. “Prey” is now streaming on Hulu.
