One of my Schwarzenegger faves from the 80's no matter how many times I watch this flick I always get right into it and enjoy it every time.

I thought it was really good. Although I felt like Arnold was a little too cocky in this one or the director focused a little too much on Arnold: Arnold was the head of the military squad, Arnold always showing off his muscles and obviously bigger and badder than everyone else, and he always wore an arrogant grin. I don't know, it kinda bothered me. Good movie though. I liked the story line and the effects were good for the 80s. The pacing was just right too. The gore was good and the suspense gave my heart a work out. I'd see it again.

The fearsome alien villains make for some of the most tense scenes in this well-made action thriller. Probably the best and most effective of the series.

"Predator" by Yojimbo

Arnold Schwarzenegger and his crack special forces unit are sent into the South American jungle to rescue the occupants of a downed helicopter, only to find themselves the target of an unseen adversary who starts to pick them off one by one. Arnie was at a crossroads when he made this film; up until this point he was known as the Terminator, but let's face it, playing a robot isn't usually the stepping stone to international superstardom. The rest of his CV consisted of films like Raw Deal, Commando and Red Sonja. Not exactly the stuff of legend. It can be argued that Predator was the film that set him on his way to becoming Governor Schwarzenegger rather Steven Seagal II. It's a perfect blend of gung ho action, tongue in cheek macho posturing and sci-fi invention. The first part of the f...

If It Bleeds - We Can Kill It

Predator is the ultimate action movie as Arnold Schwarzenegger leads an elite military team into the Central American jungle. This film starts your adrenaline pumping from the very beginning and it will remain as such until the very end. The characters are excellent and the casting is perfect with the likes of Jesse Ventura and Carl Weathers. The films story is rather simple but it works perfectly as Arnold and his team realize they are being hunted by something not of this world.

While Arnold Schwarzenegger isnít always known for his great acting he turns in a wonderful performance in this film. All the actors really bring their characters to life and through all the action there are some great character moments to be had. Kevin Peter Hall also does a great job as the title creature....

Good suspensful action/thriller

"Dutch" (Arnold Schwarzenegger) leads a group of commandos into a dense Central American jungle to rescue hostages, which they learn have been slaughtered by their captors. They find the butchered remains of one of the ones sent in to rescue the hostages. They capture a female captor after destroying the encampment, and killing the majority of the captors and begin the journey back to where they are to meet with the helicopters that would pick them up to leave the area.

It is then when they discover something is hunting them, something not from this Earth.

First off, this movie is VERY bloody and graphic, and should not be viewed by young or impressionable children unless it is on broadcast television and edited for content and language.

On the plus side, this movie is full of...
