A team of special force ops, led by a tough but fair soldier, Major "Dutch" Schaefer, are ordered to assist CIA man, Colonel Al Dillon, on a rescue mission for potential survivors of a Helicopter downed over remote South American jungle. Not long after they land, Dutch and his team discover that they have been sent in under false pretenses. This deception turns out to be the least of their worries though, when they find themselves being methodically hunted by something not of this world.Written by
Hawkins was originally supposed to wear a distinctive red beret, most likely inspired by the U.S. Army's maroon airborne berets, worn by American paratroopers. Shane Black refused to wear it, as he thought it would look ridiculous in the jungle. He later regretted the decision, as he felt it would have made his character stand out. See more »
After Dutch swims to shore, he crawls through the mud, turning to see the Predator coming towards him. Dutch reaches for his Rambo like knife only to find it missing. Yet, after the Predator is out of sight, Dutch is using the missing knife to improvise weapons and his defensive position for the final confrontation. See more »

A limited edition DVD collector's box set of Predator including both Predator movies was released in the UK in June 2001. For this UK DVD releases, Fox used the same master as the heavily censored German version. Ironically, it was released uncut in Germany. The scene where Dutch throws a knife at the soldier and saying "Stick around" was removed. The scene where Dillon loses his arm was shortened. However, the UK video is completely uncut. See more »
If I had to recommend one film to a stranger, it would have to be Predator. It has some of the best acting, directing, effects and sound-track ever produced.
>This is Arnold's best acting roll in his career. But, we must not forget every other actor who produced spine-tingling performances! >The effects are simple, yet will last the test of time >The weaponry is huge! And will remain huge in my heart!
If you like 'war type' action you should love this. From the title screen the action begins, and does not end until the credits.
The sheer brute force of the story leaves one feeling truly satisfied, and even spiritually fulfilled by the end.
Without Predator my life would be incomplete. Stick around and watch this one people. If not, get to the chopper and announce your sins!
