Shane Black's The Predator could have been a great guilty pleasure had it not gone off the rails in the absurdly stupid third act. The film was clearly the victim of studio meddling, likely brought on by poor test audience scores, and you can tell. Black just sort of stops caring right around the time when all of the film's main characters are running through the woods in the final twenty minutes.

Screen Junkies' latest Honest Trailer takes the film to task for taking a stupid pill, pointing out the film's many problems, not least of which is the way they killed off Sterling K. Brown's character rather unceremoniously. Seriously, both people I went to see this with stopped paying attention for five seconds and missed his death. That's just sloppy filmmaking.

Don't get me wrong, it was far from the worst movie I saw last year—that honor goes to The Happytime Murders—but as they said, all we needed from this movie was Predators vs. Badass Mercs. That's all we needed. This movie got bogged down in some of the dumbest shit of all time, and while I can't help but wonder what the film would've looked like before the studio meddling, there's some stupid stuff in this movie that would've still been there, guaranteed.
