Plot

Dutch and his group of commandos are hired by the CIA to rescue downed airmen from guerillas in a Central American jungle. The mission goes well but as they return they find that something is hunting them. Nearly invisible, it blends in with the forest, taking trophies from the bodies of it's victims as it goes along. Occasionally seeing through it's eyes, the audience sees it is an intelligent alien hunter, hunting them for sport, killing them off one at a time.

Quick Review

Predator has a distinct coolness factor, as a group of seriously equipped commandos find the tables have turned, as they face off against an alien lifeform. As they are hunted, the movie does an excellent job of building the tension and atmosphere to boiling point. Sonny Landham as Billy makes a mark and I seriosly missed his character for the last half of the movie. Overall: Cool!
