Schwarzenegger Says All Predator Sequels Sucked


Most Predator movies outside the first are not very good.  But not all of them.  Almost every person I’ve ever talked to thinks that Predator 2 is actually a worthy sequel. Arnold Schwarzenegger doesn’t feel that way though, speaking at a recent Q&A session.

“Sometimes studios do a great job at creating sequels, and sometimes they really screw it up bad. And it all has to do with greed. Sometimes they want to do it really cheap, and make as much money as possible, so they don’t hire the right cast, or the right director. And other times they want to rush it, because they want to have it come out next spring, even though now it’s already fall,” he said. “So far, no ‘Predator’ [movie], no matter which one they did after the first one, has been satisfactory to the audience. So I hope if Shane Black does another one, this one will be great.”

So is he right or wrong?  Wrong, I would say.  Predator 2 is a very, very good movie.  It’s kind of ironic that Arnold would suddenly speak to fan opinion and fan satisfaction, when Arnold himself recently made a hypocrite of himself by saying in his book that only an R-rated Terminator movie would be good enough for his fans, only to then appear in not only a PG-13 Terminator movie but one that is ghastly as hell, rating aside.

      It’s actually not the first time he has said it. I do wonder though if he has even seen it. Predator 2’s poor box office by the way was due to a marketing disaster by Fox.

        At the time there was more racism too, Black people were getting a lot of hate when they were the lead in movies….Also Arnold missing from the movie ruined any chance of good box office.

        I like P2 just as much as P1 for different reasons.

    Yep, Arnie’s word is worth nothing. We all know that now. He would only consider a Predator sequel good if HE was in it, because all of his films are perfect and absolute masterpieces after all, including Terminator Genisys & The Expendables 3. To hell with what he has to say from now on, whores say all kinds of shit.

    Arnold seems to have mispronounced “every Terminator after the second one.”

    Predator 2 is pretty damn good. Arnie just hopes to get in on the new PREDATOR movie, I think.

      Well if it’s from Shane Black it will be quality stuff and rated R.

    Arnold needs to apologize to his fans for this fucking shit called T5.

    He should make that R rated predator film with Shane Black.

      At least Stallone apologizes for his bullshit even if belatedly but Schwarzenegger has to be patronising as fuck.

    Predator 2 has a rollicking shit-stirring sense of bloody minded fun. It’s a great six pack movie. All of a sudden I don’t really care what a tired old Austrian whore has to say about anything. Arnie would do gay porn if there was enough money in it for him. He was always a bit of a pain with the hard sell when it came to promoting his movies but now he’s either deluded or desperate. Sabotage was his last chance to reinvent himself. Not his fault the studio cut the movie but he’ll never get another shot with someone as good as Ayer.Time to quit.

    I hope Predator 3 doesn’t become the next crap Schwarzenegger movie. And he’s wrong of course.

      Predator 3 is in Shane Black’s hands btw, don’t worry, it will be hardcore R and with a great story.

    I would rather Shane Black cast a relative unknown now than Schwarzenegger. Schwarzenegger can’t let go and doesn’t seem to want to act his age.

    “All Predator Sequels Sucked” says the man who just made a PG-13 movie called Terminator Genysis

    Both Predator 2 and Predators were “satisfactory” to me Arnold, the AvP movies however should be nuked from orbit.
