Predator just celebrated its 30th birthday on June 12th, so it’s a perfect time to revisit this over the top, bro-grabbing, oiled biceps, grease painted camouflage, quote fest of a movie to see if it holds up to the cruel ravages of time. Turns out it's just as good as ever, maybe even better. Sure, the plot is thin but if that’s what you’re watching for, you might need to reevaluate some of your entertainment decision making. This is a classic line’em up and knock’em down, hunter v. hunted tale, rife with guns, lasers, alien technology, boy scout booby-traps, and of course, some of the best macho repartee committed to film.

Arnold turns in easily his best performance on the silver screen and he’s supported by a cast that’s fully committed to the vision of the action mastermind, John McTiernan. There’s no doubt I’ll watch this a few more times at least before the next installment of the franchise, The Predator, directed by Shane Black (who appears in Predator as the misfiring comedic relief, Hawkins) hits theaters in August 2018.

Epic "Alien" tie in is ultra macho and testosterone fueled...and its a blast. While the script, acting, one liners, and music is often misplaced and totally corny, Predator is such a fun movie that packs a punch from beginning to end. It is suspenseful and the alien/monster is extremely creepy and cool. Awesome movie!

You know I think I saw this creature once, and sasquatch too, a whole family of them, this is no bull. But a truly classic movie that is Predator. You know bigfoot and aliens are for real, even if you have never seen them. People say God is real, how do you know? Have you seen Him? Faith is the believe in things not seen. But an alien like in this movie, why not just blow up the whole planet, why risk your life at all... I mean a spaceship that can actually travel through space would have super amazing powers you couldn't even dream about. Like us humans to get to the nearest star would take 18 thousand years with our technology we have today. Round trip 36,000 years, I don't think so. I would die of old age I think by then. So the movie is purely not real science at all.

Saw this movie again for the 4th time. Definitely falls in Arnold's top 5 movies. Packed with an excellent amount of quality action with the right amount of plot with simple characters. The practical effects are real great and I think very important to such a movie. The final showdown between the Predator and Arnold is the best part AND Arnold yelling "GET TO THA CHOPPA!" of course.

This is one of the greatest movies ever. I love the way they brought Arnold Schwarzenegger
and Carl Weathers together for this awesome action movie.
If you haven't seen this movie, you've never lived.
