Predators: Survival of the Fittest in a Busted Paradise?

SPOILER ALERT To know your enemy, you must become your enemy. ~ Sun Tzu, The Art of War If you’ve been on this planet long enough you’ve seen Predator, Predator 2, and Aliens vs. Predators (AVPR). The latest installment is Predators. Beyond the earlier films, Predators is a product of many influences and reflects history. It is an homage to Richard Connell’s “The Most Dangerous Game,” a short story of humans hunting humans. I think of slaveholders hunting the enslaved in the forests and swamps of the American South up to the mid-19th century. Ultimately, the film is about “survival of the fittest,” a term used to describe one of Charles Darwin’s scientific theories . . .
