After playing straight man to Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon, Danny Glover seized this opportunity to play a loose cannon, an unorthodox cop who is always turning his nose up at authority. The setting is Los Angeles in 1997, and Glover can't work out who or what is murdering the city's gangsters, or why sinister government official Gary Busey is so interested. However, it's not long before he realises that the culprit is far from human. The action sequences are ably staged by Blown Away director Stephen Hopkins, but it lacks the sweaty, claustrophobic tension of the Arnold Schwarzenegger original.


A Los Angeles cop, working to bring down the city's drug gangs, suspects Jamaican criminals when he discovers several of his targets killed and skinned alive. However, the culprit behind the murders reveals himself to be an alien big-game hunter - with the stealth and guile to outwit the police and criminals alike. Sci-fi sequel, starring Danny Glover, Bill Paxton, Gary Busey and Maria Conchita Alonso.
