About this movie

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.

Predator can well be considered a classic, with solid casting, flowing action, big explosions and even a couple a of witty chuckles thrown in. It showcases Schwarzenegger at his best, McTiernan at his best, Silvestri at his best, Winston at... Ah well, you get the idea. =) Though this one begins much like plenty other action movies of the time, the horror twist induced by the titular Predator is what has made this movie memorable and lasting, and in turn this movie and the first sequel (Predator 2) have made the Predator an iconic movie alien even though the further sequels haven't lived up to par... Well, Predators is worth watching, even if it borrows maybe a bit too much from this one. ^^ Still, if/when you get disappointed by the sequels, you can always rewatch the one that started it all! =D

DD: not sure how long it has been since the last time i saw this film. i sure did not expect i will find it enjoyable now. there were cheesy parts, it's the late 80's, so you know. but again, i enjoyed it and found it to be really entertaining.
