Major Dutch Schaefer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is the leader of a military rescue unit looking for allies captured by guerrillas in the Latin American jungle. At first it seems like any other mission: Schaefer and his team of seasoned combat veterans spot a guerilla camp, destroy it, and find the men they were sent to rescue executed. But when Schaefer attempts to lead his unit out, with a captured guerrilla in tow, something horrifying and inexplicable begins to happen: One by one the men are killed by a mysterious adversary - a Predator from another world.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Alternately grisly and dull.
Fresh: It is so lean, so exciting and so imaginative that you can watch it every month or two, year in and year out, and never get tired of it.
Fresh: It's a slick, high-energy action picture that takes a lot of its strength from its steamy locations in Mexico.
Fresh: A thumping piece of powerhouse cinema.
"Get to da choppa!"- you know who
Even though I forgot to report on my last review that it was my 100th, I'll make up for it by reviewing this classic.
Predator.....is AWESOME! It starts off as a fun action movie, but then as soon as the Predator gets his first victim it feels like a survival monster movie. It's just that great! Arnold Schwarzenegger actually did a good job with this film. This film wasn't the overboard one liner movies. However, it felt like a genuine sci-fi thriller. So, if you haven't seen this movie....what are you waiting for? Just get it! Who knows? It might get in gear for the Predators movie coming out this July!
Bout time iTunes had this movie to download one of favorite of all time movies. Let's pray Predators can hold a candle to the godfather to all Predator. Movies
A Worthy Combatant of the Alien franchise
Wow. I can see why this is the worthy combatant of the Alien franchise. This is really good. The story is unique (at least for its time), the characters are fun to watch and (possible spoiler ahead) you feel really bad when they die. But, there is a reason the title character is PREDATOR! Holy crap! As I said before, I see why this thing is a worthy combatant of the Aliens.
