YMMV / Predators

  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Hanzo, who is the most quiet of the group and the least focused on. Beating a Predator one-on-one with a katana will have that effect.
  • Memetic Mutation: Stans "bitch raping time" is a minor meme on the internet.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Many of the characters crossed it before the film even began. Like Cuchillo who kidnapped and burned people alive for crime syndicates in Mexico for money and had the gal to call Stans out on killing people out of sadism and not for the paycheck. Speaking of whom..
    • Stans has killed 38 people because as he said "why not?" The "bitch raping time" comment also causes some thoughts...
    • Noland has survived into the wild by degenerating into a serial killing beast fitting right into the jungle.
    • Edwin turned out to be one of the most prolific murderers as he was a serial killer who loved killing so much that he was bent on staying and tried to torture and kill Isabelle despite the fact that she saved his life many times and was nice to him.
    • Even Royce who is more of an Anti-Hero is implied to have killed people for money in the past and uses his own team as bait to draw out the Predators.
  • Narm: The appearance of the Black Predator's face. He looked kind of ridiculous (ie. His eyes are a little too far apart). The roaring couldn't hide this fact.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Maybe not quite one scene, but come on, Laurence Fishburne as Noland was easily one of the best bits of the film.
    • Especially one of his first lines. Royce asks what the hell he is, and he simply whispers, "I'm aliiiiive."
  • Surprisingly Improved Sequel: After the poor reception of Predator 2 and the Alien vs. Predator films, this convinced critics and fans who didn't like the other films that the series still had life left in it.
  • Win Back the Crowd: Robert Rodriguez hoped for this to happen and it's safe to say he succeeded.
