  • Visually, Predator is a full-assault experience. Director John McTiernan mixes his range of shots with fast precision and full-blast effect.

  • Despite the off-rhythm styling, there's not a lot going on.

    June 5, 2007 | Full Review…
  • With its stilted dialogue and hammy acting, the film has the look of an expensive production but the feel of a B movie, delivering the sort of undemanding monster mayhem Arnie's fans have come to expect.

  • Alternately grisly and dull.

  • It's a slick, high-energy action picture that takes a lot of its strength from its steamy locations in Mexico.

Audience Reviews for Predator

    Boasting furious action, oozing its obvious machismo and intensifying the tension after each encounter of the intergalactic slayer, Predator is a macho-fun film that takes advantage of its blessing of a one-liner titan in Schwarzenegger as well as its quirky supporting cast to make for a landmark 80s picture for its time. 4.6/5

    Predator has Arnold Schwarzenegger on his A-Game, awesome characters, very thrilling action sequences as well as a very cool premise. Predator is a cult classic that absolutely requires your attention!

    A search and rescue mission turned haywire when an unknown alien began stalking and killing the rescue team. Sschwarznegger didn't really have his best performance but the story was refreshing and there was enough both violence and action to satisfy film buffs.

    "Predator" is a exciting action/horror film of 1987. "Predator" has a great plot to it, which is a group of United States army fighters are sent to a place to retrieve some hostages, later to find out that a "Predator" is after them one-by-one. The story is great except for a few things that don't make sense, these are toward's the film's climax. The acting in "Predator" is superb, "Arnold Schwarzenegger" as always puts 100% into his roles. "Carl Weathers" is perfect in this film as well. The music in "Predator" is perfect, it's very suspenseful and fits in perfectly with the scenes. The film is shot great, the camera man did a great job filming this movie. For a film that was made in 1987, "Predator" has special effects that still look realistic to this day. I highly recommend you watch "Predator" as it is a superb and exciting action/horror film of 1987. I give "Predator" an 8/10.
