Predator 2...

Whilst it will never be as good as the original, Predator 2 is a film of some merit. It was a bold move to set it in the urban sprawls of Los Angeles, and to not get Arnie back in on the action. It was unwittingly inspired to cast a veritable who's who of late 80s, early 90s actors (Danny Glover, Robert Davi, Gary Busey, Maria Conchita Alonso, Bill Paxton, etc) and whilst at first it seems a little lazy to have used most of the incidental music from the first film, it gives Predator 2 some sturdy foundations on which to build. Rather like Demolition Man in that it's one of those smaller blockbusters that never exploded into cinemas but gets better with time. A pebble buster if you will.
