I honestly don't really care if this is a bump, or I get banned, I just feel the need to correct mis-information:
Yes, a human can carry a m134, but no, they cannot fire one like they did in Predator, as the recoil is too great. It would only be possible in a tripod setup.
Secondly, the one in resident evil is not real, it is a prop made specifically for the movie. Just because it's used in a movie doesn't make it possible, again recoil is still the key point here. If you do some research, you might find some 'behind the scenes' info for the Predator movie; specifically, what is relevant is that the actor that was using the m134 in the movie notes that even firing blanks, he found it difficult to stand, and if it had been firing live rounds, he would be flat on his back. That isn't the exact quote, but it's close. As said above, if you do the research you'll figure it out yourself as well.
Speaking in movie terms, coupled with real-life points, the reason it even 'worked' in the movie Resident Evil 2 was because the user had super-human strength.
