A behind-the-scenes look at the 1987 sci-fi/action film that has since become one of the modern classics, about a team of special forces soldiers who find themselves being stalked and killed by a hunter from another world. Includes interviews with the cast and crew, who relate their experiences in bringing this film to life. Written by

This 28 minute, 46 second documentary on the making of "Predator" can be found on the second disc of the 2-DVD set special Edition of the aforementioned movie. Combining behind the scenes footage and vintage interviews from the time of the making of the film with new (well new as in 2001) interviews with the cast and crew members, this packs a lot of information in under 30 minutes. And yes there's a bit of the typical Hollywood back-slapping to be found in this, but thankfully the kept it to a minimum. It also features clips from "Commando" (another great Arnold vehicle). The Sonny Landham story was a bit creepy in it's connotations. There's a few humorous stories as well. All in all a great documentary on a great action movie.
