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
In a part of the world where there are no rules, deep in the jungle where nothing that lives is safe, an elite rescue squad is being led by the ultimate warrior. But now, they're up against the ultimate enemy. Nothing like it has ever been on earth before. It kills for pleasure, it hunts for sport. But this time, it picked the wrong man to hunt. See more »
The tree the Predator stands on was made of concrete, in order to support the weight of the actor and his costume. See more »
Dutch and his men are shown to be US military special forces operators. As such, they are lawfully bound to follow any legal order given to them by a superior officer. That means that they do not get to "pick and choose" which missions they will undertake and those that they won't.
The entire discussion between Dutch and Dillion later about how Dillion "tricked" Dutch and his men is irrelevant as their job is simply to follow the orders that they have been given. It also makes the General and Dillion seem to be incompetent as not truthfully revealing the nature and scope of the mission Dutch and his men risked failing to achieve the objectives required.

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.

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!
