Predator Rotten Tomatoes Score Is In

This week sees the release of Shane Black's Predator movie, and now its Rotten Tomatoes score is in!

With presently 22 reviews accounted for, Predator comes in "Fresh" with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 64% -- 14 of the reviews "fresh" to 8 being "rotten."

Update: The film now has a score of 40% with 31 "Fresh" to 46 "Rotten."

The movie also comes with a bit of controversy as it became known an actor involved with the movie, Steven Wilder Striegel, is a registered sex offender, and his scene was cut. The minor scene involved Striegel's character as a jogger hitting on Oliva Munn's character, so we see that comes off as just a bit creepy. Olivia Munn actually found out about it and alerted the studio, who in turn cut the scene.

The studio released a statement offering they didn't know about Striegel's past, but Shane Black did. Black said he tried to help out a friend and said he apparently did not know the extent of the situation. Steven Wilder Striegel pursued a 14-year-old girl for a sexual relationship on the internet and pleaded guilty two two felonies in 2010 and served a six month sentence. 

“Our studio was not aware of Mr. Striegel’s background when he was hired,” 20th Century Fox told HuffPost in a statement on Friday, with it noted they pulled the scene within 24 hours.

Regarding what Shane Black had to say: “I personally chose to help a friend. I can understand others might disapprove, as his conviction was on a sensitive charge and not to be taken lightly," Shane Black told the LA Times initially.

However, once everything came to light, Shane Black released a statement saying he was “misled by a friend” and after learning all the details, the director offered an apology: “I am deeply disappointed in myself. I apologize to all of those, past and present, I’ve let down by having Steve around them without giving them a voice in the decision.”

The Predator movie looks pretty cool with its updated take on the alien hunter in addition to what seems to be a fun cast, so hopefully the controversy doesn't spoil the flick.
