    The Florida Project

    ★★★★

    Young single mum Halley(Bria Vinaite) has taken residence in a Florida motel with her six-year-old daughter Moonee (Brooklynn Prince).

    ★½

    Oh dear.
    Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.

    I could just leave it at that as a review as it just about sums up my feelings on this, to put it mildly, ill-advised entry into the perennially disappointing Predator franchise.

    A Predator ship crash lands conveniently right into the middle of an American black ops mission in deepest, darkest South America.
    Captain Quinn McKenna (Boyd Holbrook) is the only man to survive and presumably due to his lack of faith…
