5.0 out of 5 stars He's in town, with a few days to kill..., 29 July 2006
This review is from: Predator 2 (Special Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
The two Predator movies are my all time favourite films. They just work beautifully together, both films have the same feel to them, the same style. I really enjoy watching them and Predator 2 would have to be my favourite.

Predator 2, while not having the same sense of fun as the original, has a much more interesting plot than the first film and reveals more about the Predator himself. It's more of a mystery story than a full blown action movie. The suspense is really well done, Predator 2 having beautiful cinematography combined with impressive visual effects and Alan Silvestri's wonderful musical score. It's a good film and has been really under-rated. I had always wanted to buy this on DVD but it really never had a good release up until now.

This "Special Edition" is a really well designed set, with nice cover and disc art and cool interactive menus. There's two audio commentaries for the film, one by the writers and another by the director, that go into some depth about the making of the movie. Quite entertaining stuff. On the second disc there is a featurette about how the movie was made, detailing aspects such as why they decided to set it in the city and how difficult it was to get the film finished because of all the optical effects. The featurette has interviews from people such as Gary Busey and the Predator himself, Kevin Peter Hall. Also thrown in are some segments about the Pred's weapons and how the camouflage effects were achieved alongside some old previews for the movie and a large photo archive.

All in all, a great DVD for an excellent film.
