About this deal

As we are just a short couple weeks away from the release of The Predatorin movie theaters, this is a perfect time to zip through the franchise when it was at its best. It gets bogged down in the macho showboating, something that the original excelled at, and so is all too ‘shouty’. As the latest entry in the series written and directed by Shane Black, The Predator crash lands with a spectacular dud instead of reigniting a fiery enthusiasm for the franchise, a massive misfire that's ultimately sleep-inducing and a chore to sit through.

Although it never truly hits the ultra-low depths with any meaningful impact, a powerful and robust low-end nonetheless provides a palpable, occasionally room-shaking presence.this particular supervillain is what Alfred Hitchcock once described as the difference between surprise and suspense.

Effects come thick and fast when the action ramps up, the opening gun battle, or during any Predator attacks, with gun shots, stabbings, blood platter, shell casings being thrown around the room. But he felt it was more like “‘King Kong,’ as a bunch of guys go to an island and go deeper and deeper and — shazam!So whilst a few scenes feel odd to begin with, you soon get into the flow, and then start to not even notice the lip synch. If you experience instability, try reducing the overclock to a lower refresh rate through the on-screen display settings.

The clash between the commandos and the unseen hunter is excellent at times, but you’ll also notice a lot of the usual genre pitfalls.With all of the improvements in the picture quality, we do, disappointingly, find the same DTS HD Master Audio soundtrack used on the previous Blu-ray. All three films are pressed onto Region Free BD-66 discs and are housed in a sturdy 6-disc traditional black UHD case with identical slipcover artwork.
