The movie focuses on Special Forces operative 'Dutch', played by Schwarzenegger, and his team of elite soldiers, as they, along with CIA agent Dillon, an old friend of Dutch's, attempt to rescue hostages held in Central America by a guerrilla force. Once there though, they find that the local insurgents are far from the biggest concern. An alien being is loose in the area and is hell-bent on hunting down the group of soldiers, with only the dense jungle as cover. As the team gets picked off one by one, it comes down to Dutch and Dillon to band together against this unknown alien antagonist.

movie facts

Predator is widely considered to be one of the best action movies of all time, always appearing on top of movie lists. The movie went on to spawn multiple sequels, with one as recently as 2018, and crossover films with the Alien franchise, seeing the Predators facing off against the Alien’s Xenomorphs. Alien vs. Predator has gone on as a successful comic book series, detailing a complex mythos explaining the relation of the two species, with the Predators as hunters who have bred the Xenomorphs as a natural prey to hunt for sport. Predator, and by extension the Alien vs. Predator series, has become an extensive franchise, with novelizations, toys, and video game adaptations, based on the source material. The original film also stands as one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's most beloved films at the height of his action movie career.
