Predator 2 ★★ 1990 (R)

Tough cop takes time away from battling drug dealers to deal with malicious extraterrestrial who exterminated Arnold's band of commandos in “Predator.” Missbilled as sequel, its only resemblance to the original is that the predator has inexplicably returned (this time to the thick of L.A.). Gory action aplenty, little logic. Fine cast dominated by minority performers can't save this one. 105m/C VHS, DVD . Danny Glover, Gary Busey, Ruben Blades, Maria Conchita Alonso, Bill Paxton, Robert Davi, Adam Baldwin, Kent McCord, Morton Downey Jr., Calvin Lockhart, Teri Weigel, Kevin Peter Hall, Steve Kahan, Michael (Mike) Papajohn, Jsu Garcia; D: Stephen Hopkins; W: John Thomas, Jim Thomas; C: Peter Levy; M: Alan Silvestri.
