We won't blow you up, so don't blow us up either!" I mean, there were cops on both boats so they had to be able to communicate.

As for Predators... yeah, it wasn't Topher's fault... it was just terrible writing.
Uh, no. Blowpher was just about the only thing wrong with Predators. Topher is always his goofy self in whatever role he does. It was a poor decision to have him cast in any important role in a movie like that, but particularly in a role that required layers. To top that off by delivering a dramatic monologue (or what was intended to be dramatic) is a recipe for unintentional humor. There is a plethora of skilled actors who could have pulled off that scene, but drama isn't Blowpher's cup 'o tea.
