Predator by Predatorwest (Runner-up, Skull and Spinal Column d'Or, 2005)
|Lovable Ice Cube||...||Calvin Palmer|
|Cedric the Entertainer||...||Eddie|
|Sean Patrick Thomas||...||Jimmy|
|Michael Ealy||...||Ricky Nash|
|Bill Paxton||...||Mr. Codee Savatori|
|Brandy||...||FBI Agent Vanessa Houston|
Though white, writer Olaf Grimsdotter claims his hometown of Oslo, Norway to be the blackest part of Scandinavia next to Lapland. He is also an expert on Predators and Predaliens.
Lovable Ice Cube refused to reprise his role as Calvin until early drafts of the script were rewritten to include a three minute sequence where he is covered in heaps of babies. When budget constraints limited practical effects to five real babies and several dozen rubber babies, Ice Cube complained to TMZ that "Lovable Ice T got all the babies he wants on CSI or whatever."
Cedric the Entertainer was so terrified by the Predator suit that before scenes shot with the Predator, Cedric had to be dazzled by a ring light until functionally blind. This led to an incident during a break in shooting in which he married his own daughter. They are still happily married.
Bill Paxton and Marlon Wayans were cast as rival hair stylists and shot on a green screen after principal photography had concluded. They were composited into scenes and used to explain why the Predator suddenly appeared in Chicago.
Brandy was never seen again after the filming of this movie and it is believed she may still be on a 20th Century Fox set in Burbank. Currently, no one is looking for her.
Revealing Mistake: When Terri fires the AR-15 A5 she is using the SpecArms Tactical Assault variant with over/under laser, Cornershot LCD rails, and integral flash suppressor. This variant was was never produced with a left hand ejection port since it intereferes with the Cornershot.
Miscellaneous: When the Predator records the dog barking to play back later the dog is actually exclaiming, "I love birds!" and is not angry at all at the Predator.
Continuity: Tookee exhales a large cloud of smoke and sees the beams of the Predator's plasmacaster, but when the plasma shot explodes his head there is no smoke visible.
Factual Errors: Covering the Predator's face with a hot towel would not obscure its thermographic vision, which is fed from a sensor in the Predator armor's shoulder.
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: Despite being unarmed, the Predator correctly interprets D-bone's "Thug Lyfe" tattoo as the markings of a warrior. This is why the Predator explodes D-bone's torso across his naked girlfriend.
Factual Errors: A jar of "comb juice" does not explode when struck by a boomerang.
Continuity: When Calvin finds Ricky's skin hanging from the coat hook it is missing the tattoo of an eagle seen in Barbershop 2.
Crew or Equipment Visible: Brandy can be seen texting on her Sidekick during the disemboweling sequence.
Factual Errors: The FBI's "Predator Task Force" does not hunt aliens unless they are trying to molest children.
[Digger unearths homing beacon that is beeping]
Eddie: Goddamn, that man's head just came off!
Eddie: See, back in my day, the worst you had to worry about was a rock in your window. Maybe some guy with a chain take your wallet. Predators? My momma told me to watch out for Old Bernie with a nickel on his knee. Tell you to come take it. That was a predator. Not this stuff. Seeing in the dark. Fading out on you. Shooting lightning around the house like Lord knows what. You'll be lucky if he takes your wallet. No, these days, they take your skin.
[Predator appears in the barbershop and Jimmy brandishes clippers]
Calvin: This predator is about to get a trim...

A FUN BUT FLAWED ACTION COMEDY 6 April 2009
Author: sturm1488 from United States
Better special effects than AVP and it dives into the hunt stuff more. I really appreciate the attention to detail, like the extra bone lol. J/k but I thought my favorite character was the businessman opening the salon, I was sorry to see the predator spear him through his windshield. also the ending of the movie ruins it. Just two of them left and the predator loses to a guy with a shotgun. Right! At least they hint at a more thorough cleansing in a sequel. Really looking forward to seeing the good work finished especially in this obama era. look up obamabirthcertificatefactcheck.org for more info!!
