Movie Review

The film begins 23 years after the events of the first film, with a mercenary, former US Army Special Forces soldier, Royce, (Adrien Brody) awakening in freefall over a jungle. Upon landing, he is confronted by heavily-armed individuals including Nikolai, a Russian Spetsnaz  soldier, (Oleg Taktarov), Cuchillo, a Mexican drug cartel enforcer, (Danny Trejo), and Isabelle, an IDF black ops sniper (Alice Braga). They encounter more people dropped from the sky, including Mombasa, an RUF officer, (Mahershalalhashbaz Ali), who is fighting with Stans, a US Death Row inmate (Walton Goggins), Hanzo, a silent Yakuza enforcer, (Louis Ozawa Changchien), and Edwin, an American doctor (Topher Grace). The group finds out that all of them have no idea of how they got to the jungle. Deciding that they should all stick together, they all venture in one direction to find possible aid.

After escaping a series of man-made booby-traps (the creator of which had been killed), the group are attacked by several dog-like alien creatures. While the group manages to kill some of the creatures, a few of them manage to corner Cuchillo. Soon the creatures are called back by a high-pitched whistle. The group hears Cuchillo's voice in the distance and find him being used as bait for a trap. In an act of mercy, Isabelle shoots Cuchillo, not knowing that he was already dead and his voice was being mimicked. After they reach higher ground, Royce realizes that they are on an alien game preserve planet, and are being hunted as game by some unknown hunters. The previous creatures were being used as hunting dogs to flush them out. Royce leads the group to a Predator hunting camp, where they find a captive 'classic' Predator tied to a totem pole. Royce bides his time until the Predators attack, killing Mombasa with spears while the rest of the group escapes to a river.

After being attacked by a bipedal insectoid creature flushed out by Edwin, they meet a U.S. Air Cavalry Soldier named Noland (Laurence Fishburne), who has survived on the planet for years by scavenging and hiding in an abandoned spaceship. Deranged from his long isolation, Noland reveals that the Predators have been harvesting warriors from Earth and other planets for centuries, using them to improve their hunting skills. He also reveals that there is a blood feud between two clans of Predators: the classic Predators and the larger, more aggressive 'super' Predators — three of whom are hunting the humans. Noland also reveals the existence of the ship that the Predators use to reach the planet. Noland sarcastically remarks that he never thought to commandeer the ship, but that Royce must know how to fly it. Royce points out that the classic Predator strung up in the hunting camp might.

Later that night, Noland attempts to murder the group for their equipment. To escape, Royce alerts the hunting Predators, who break into the ship, killing Noland. Edwin falls behind as the group escapes, and Nikolai sacrifices his life saving Edwin, using an explosive to destroy himself and a Predator. Outside, the Super Predators show themselves to be less honorable hunters than the Classic Predators when one fires on an unarmed Stans. Stans is brutally killed while saving Royce, and Hanzo stays behind to face the Predators. Wielding a centuries old authentic samurai katana which he found amongst Noland's possessions, he engages a Predator in single combat, resulting in both of their deaths. As the final three humans escape, Edwin is crippled by a trap. Isabelle refuses to abandon him, and Royce returns to the hunting camp to free the classic Predator in exchange for boarding the ship. Isabelle and Edwin are captured by the final super Predator, who throws them into a pit. Edwin temporarily paralyzes Isabelle by cutting her with his scalpel covered in neurotoxin and reveals that he is a psychopathic serial killer who wishes to stay on the planet to become like the Predators.

The classic Predator activates the ship, and engages the super Predator in combat, giving Royce the time he needs to get to the ship. After a fierce battle, the classic Predator is decapitated, and the Black Super Predator remotely destroys the ship, ensuring that nobody leaves the planet. Royce, having never actually boarded the ship, returns to rescue Isabelle. After Edwin attempts to paralyze Royce as well, Royce disarms him and booby-traps Edwin's body with grenades and uses him as bait in a trap for the super Predator. Royce disorients the Predator and after a violent fight, Royce defeats and decapitates it as Isabelle shakes off the paralyzation.

The film closes by showing Isabelle and Royce sitting together by the remains of a fire, watching the sky as more humans and other aliens are being dropped into the jungle. Royce says to Isabelle that it's time to find a way off the planet, and they walk away into the jungle.
