    Predator: Hunters #5 marks the end of the first in a while that focuses solely on the Predators. This is not to say a few others recently didn't, but they didn't make their world as important as it could be. Predator: Hunters is a fresh release from the murderfest that is the unfortunate encounters with the Xenomorphs, where the humans for once are on the attack rather than running scared for issues.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 6, 2017

    Predator: Hunters has a good concept to work with but ended up going with so much setup and character material in the first few issues that it pushed all the action to the last couple of issues. The location and its history certainly has a lot to work with but then using as much of this as flashback and exposition ended up making it all the harder to give the action the weight it needs. It's like the equivalent of the third act of an action movie being just a few minutes overall. I like the potential of this story but it was too compressed and spent too much time in the wrong areas for the amount of issues that it was allotted. Hopefully, the next Predator story will work better. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Sep 11, 2017

    Predator: Hunters would have benefited from one more chapter to flesh out its story. As it stands, the ending is rushed. Everything is tied up in a nice little bow at the end with sudden appearances and changes that come out of nowhere and are a little too convenient. If this was a movie, it would be like cramming the last half hour of action into five minutes. Read Full Review
